The perfect touring glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these gloves at the beginning of last ski season and have been beyond happy with them. I use these for touring and they are exactly what I had been searching for. Most lightweight gloves have some kind of caveat, they're too warm, they don't block wind well enough, they don't breath well enough, they're not waterproof enough... You get the picture. Now enters the Venta LT.

The Windstopper material keeps all wind out, which is usually the source of cold hands while touring. Minimal insulation keeps them ever so slightly warm but they breath so well that any build up of excess heat escapes without issue. They are not 100% waterproof but they are close enough for touring. If I do happen to cover them in snow, once I start moving again, they quickly dry out because they breath so well. I am beyond happy with this glove and just bought a 2nd pair as backup in case I lose my current set. I cannot say enough good things about this glove for highly active winter pursuits!

Nice overall gloves !

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Yeah, it's Arc'teryx, sometimes more expensive than other brands for the same results...
But I pretty like them. I'm in the infantry and used them a few times. I used them for running everytime, even when it's -20 degree C, it's not hot at all, but it's o.k. for me.
The WINDBREAKER works perfectly, and I bought them a size larger so I could put the Arc'teryx Phase Liner in ! works great and the humidity gets out well.
Would not considering skiing (cross country is ok) or winter activities with ONLY these on... they are not winter gloves, they are windbreaker and lightweight with NO insulation.

Great overall gloves !

I'm considering using these for running....

I'm considering using these for running. What temperature range can I use these down to? (I don't have a particular tendency to get cold).

Hans,
These would definitely be the better option for running than the Stingray. The Venta LT is a lightweight glove with Gore Windstopper which means they will block the wind and breathe to allow moisture to wick away from the hands during intense aerobic activity. When I am running in the winter I find that if my hands are cold it is much more a result of poor wind blocking than poor insulation. These will be an ideal fit for trail running, snowshoeing, or any other high output winter activity.

this gloves sucks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

After 10-15 days skiing backcountry. A lot of seams broke apart.
Durability is super poor. I've bought Outdoor Research StormSensor and they are much better than these. Fit better, feels better, better waterproof. Waste of money...

that is because this glove is made for lighter touring in warmer weather. this glove is actually pretty sweet for nice spring days.

Fantastic, versatile gloves

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have used these gloves in many different settings including skiing, high altitude mountaineering, and ice climbing. The pair I bought was big enough to put a liner glove underneath so I was able to add extra warmth if needed. They block the wind well and allow for a lot of dexterity. They certainly aren't water proof but resist moisture well. They are light enough to keep as an emergency pair of gloves on a nice day. Great purchase.

Great Skinning Glove

I wore these for a day skinning in the backcountry. They had great grip on my poles and were the perfect weight. Temps that day ranged from about 15 to the upper 20's.

Still serving me well after many seasons

Everything I could want in a lightweight glove. These gloves have served me well down below freezing and on warmer, wet spring days. I have used these running, working, flipping tires, climbing ropes, and hiking. After 2 years of use they show little wear and have no stretched or started to fail in anyway. Highly recommended for anyone needing an inexpensive glove that will protect them and still allow the hands to be used as needed.

Venta LT Gloves

Hi Backcountry :)
So, in late september i bought these gloves, needing a windstopper glove that i could bike to school in (5 miles, winds up to 10m/s), and at same time could use for hikes, meaning they should be windproof, ligth, dexteriuos and good quality.
The Venta LT's is quite good value for a light windstopper glove, price is around the same ad competitors. They weight 79 grammes in the size large, wich is very good and among the ligthest i've seen.
The strech cuff is very good, it feels a bit fragile, but so far it has stood to being pulled over watches, baselayers and my 100 weigth fleece. The leather pulltap is very nice, and makes sure you dont kill the strech in the cuff when pulling them on.
The leather reenforcement on the palm is very good, handling medium fast abseils without damage.
They are totally windproof, allthough the seems are not taped. I haven't had wind coming in yet though. They can be a bit cold around the knuckles, when downhill biking, but thats due to the thin material.
When colder wether hits, i have had great succes with putting a icebreaker liner glove under, perfect fit.
Water resistance: Very good, but as mentioned, the gloves are not taped. I was on a full day hike, with the last four hours turning in to pretty heavy rain, and wore these as my only gloves. They were were good for drizzels, but after 2-3 hours of heavy rain the seams leaked, as expected, and upon arrival (4½ hours in heavy rain) they were soaked. They dried nigth over (with exposure to campfire) and where good the next day.
Bottom line: Seam tape would be nice, but would probably double price and bring up the weigth.
Also, a leather reenforcement would be nice on the index fingers, to avoid velcro snatch.

Oh, and also, a few seams has come loose, wich is a bit sad, but i havent exactly been nice to these gloves.

I need gloves that are thin enough to hold...

I need gloves that are thin enough to hold and work with dog leashes while keeping my hands WARM. Does anyone know if this seems like a good fit?

Responded on

These would be great for that, or the Venta SV, a touch warmer and full leather palms, but still very dexterous (is that a word?). Also, beast hair resistant.
