Good but not in real cold conditions

So these are great for dexterity and temps above 20f. I just went through a very cold MLK weekend in the east (as low as zero f) and a moderately cold weekend at Stratton about twenty f. These gloves feel great on but dont compare to my stolen Hestra XCR's. Not as warm or comfy as the liners are a bit stiff. Idid wear the SV's with a hestra wool/poly liner as well but they did not stand up to the cold. I will say that my worn out Marmot Alpinist pro were the warmest although after 5 yrs they wore out at the seams. I am sending my Sv's back and i think going back to the Marmot's.

Arc'teryx needs to address the insulation issue on these gloves...

Outstanding dexterity, ok warmth

I waited 2 months for the Orange color to come. I love the look and feel of the glove. At first I thought all the hype about dexterity and feel were just baloney, but over time after using the gloves and comparing the feel with other gloves, I'd have to say they are the real deal.

An easy way see the dexterity in the gloves is to try to touch the very tip of the thumb with each of the other fingers very quickly. It is very easy to do!! Especially when compared to other gloves of the same size .

I do have one complaint, and that is about the warmth of the glove. The sv in vertical sv stands for severe weather, so I was expecting the gloves to be warmer. The fleece liner seems like maybe a 200 weight fleece. I think I'm gonna try the merino wool liner and see if that helps warm things up.

If your out there Brandini Cooarlisle, I'd like to make a suggestion for the homies at Arcteryx. I think along with a fleece liner for this glove you could also make a liner out of primaloft or coreloft. You could charge more money for both liners or the same price for either one. That would make this glove the ultimate in versality and it would truly be a "severe weather glove!

I am between this glove a
nd the Black Diamond Legend or the Hestra Seth Morrison pro....which one is the best and warmest also for ski?

Responded on

Balck diamond makes really warm gloves plus they are wicked good deals and quality go with the legend

Best Answer Responded on

This is really a question of priority. The Vertical SV will have by far the most dexterity, and it will be the least warm as well. Everyone has their own idea of what makes a glove the "best." Of the three gloves you presented, the Legend is certainly the warmest while also having the least dexterity. The Seth would be somewhere in between in respect to warmth and dexterity. If your number 1 priority is warmth, consider the Sigma AR glove. That is about as warm as it will get in a glove, while still maintaining reasonable dexterity. From there, any warmer and your looking at mittens. The Black Diamond Mercury Mitten would make for a great option, and you can grab one on DoG for 50 bucks. I actually bought the Vertical SV and the Mercury so I can have the best of warmth and dexterity at my disposal. The Mercury Mitt is honestly hard to take off, its like your hand is wrapped in a cloud ;). Concerning the three options you presented, like I said on a scale of warmth SVSeth>Legend. You can expect slightly higher quality out of Arcteryx and Hestra but that is not to say that your not getting top of the line build with the Legend too. You can't go wrong, especially with the return policy here.

THANKS A LOT!! for such a good info...i decided and bought the black diamond legend in XL I have loooong skinny fingers ..hope they're not to "hard" ...

question about sizing: By the size charts...

question about sizing: By the size charts I would take a large, but with most gloves, after trying them on, I find that an extra large is a better fit, especially in the fingers. I usually find that the fingers are too snug. Any idea how these run? Do they run large, small, compared with other brands?

Responded on

I think these run just a bit big, one of the only things in the Arc'teryx line I'd say this about. I am typically medium, and have worn a pair of these about 20 days. After some wear the fleece liner and leather break in. I'd suggest to buy these so they fit just a tiny bit snug when new. So, I'd suggest to follow the chart on this one.

Best Answer Responded on

Yea, it is crazy to say this, but the fingers are almost sized for sausage fingers. You will not find the fingers to be too snug here. They are certainly larger than I expected in generally. I would say err on the small side with these.

So I just received my Vertical SV glove,...

So I just received my Vertical SV glove, and one thing I noticed between this and the Alpha glove is the liner. Is the liner inside the Vertical supposed to be extremely baggy and large? The Alpha was nice and fitted around my fingers. Also, what size do you wear? I love these gloves, but I can't get the sizing right. The small's felt short, but now with the medium I feel like they are slightly too long, where my thumb doesn't move with the glove. I guess the only reason the original glove felt short is because it felt a little restricted only when extending my fingers out as far out as possible. I really wish I had the option to compare in store. Thanks to anyone that can help! Seriously!

Responded on

The gloves (Alpha and Vertical) are meant for your hand to be slightly bent at all times. The moment you extend your fingers in these gloves the fit feels weird. As long as they fit fine with your fingers in the grip position they should work. I wear a medium and have long thin fingers- they felt short during extension on me as well. I just realized that I dont normally extend my fingers while skiing. If you prefer the fit of the ALpha why not get those

Responded on

Yea, I think the problem I have is the fact that I ordered a medium thinking the smalls were too short. That might also explain the bagginess of the liners. I might go with the small's then. Thanks a lot!

Responded on

Hey, I just spent a while trying on the vertical sv gloves and the aplha sv gloves, and I could definitly feel a difference in the liners. I found that the liner in the vertical sv glove and the new blue alpha sv glove were much baggier and not as comfortable as the ones on the black alpha sv glove. Quite strange

I'm not quite sure which glove to go with,...

I'm not quite sure which glove to go with, the Alpha SV Glove or the Vertical SV? I like both, really, but I'm not sure which glove would be a better choice considering the length/style difference. Does anyone know which glove usually performs better? If I'm going to drop the cash on one of these, I want to make sure they will work to their full potential. I have to admit, the Alpha SV glove sounds much better, considering the possibility of being buried in snow. I feel like my sleeves will ride up on my Alpha LT with the Vertical glove.

Responded on

Go with the Alpha SV. The gauntlet style glove is best suited to most snowsports. I cant imagine why anyone would want such a short glove like the vertical SV. I own the Alpha SV glove. If you have crazy long fingers than they may not be the glove for you. Otherwise they are a fantastic glove with unreal dexterity.

Best Answer Responded on

It really depends more on your style and functional preferences. I don't like gauntlet gloves because they feel bulky and constricting, even these Arc'teryx ones (and I think the gauntlet looks old-school at resorts). The gauntlets are easier to take on and off because you don't need to adjust the jacket cuff each time. I've used both, and prefer the Vertical SV, and use them mostly for skiing. Climbers tend to go more for the Alpha SV. Either one will stay put well and seal out the elements. I haven't had any problems with cuffs riding up over my Vertical SV and have used them in some super deep conditions with cartwheels and other crash styles involved.

Responded on

I've got the Alpha SV gloves as well,and I believe without reservation,that they are the best gloves I've ever seen.I've now worn them for about 40 days total(got them last year in Jan)and they have broken in even more-if this can be believed,so now I can't even tell I'm wearing them-at all.Far and away the best gloves available for extreme cold snowsports or climbing.
In my experience with these gloves-and I use them in all sorts of conditions but all in well below freezing temps-they've become my staple go to glove.

My hands get very cold very fast, i am very serious. Are these warm?

Responded on

These are NOT particularly warm. They only have a fleece liner inside a the glove shell. If you want something warmer you need an insulated glove (with primaloft) like the Arcteryx Zenta or Marmot Ultimate

Responded on

I've worn these gloves skiing down to about 5F with some blasting wind, and they kept my hands completely warm. However,I'm not particularly susceptible to cold hands. I will say that the construction makes these the most breathable waterproof gloves I've worn, and this keeps the liners much drier and therefore, your hands stay warm. If you want this type of construction in the maximum warmth, check out the Alpha SV Mitt, which has a thicker fleece liner, but still great breathability.

Responded on

Paul do you have any comparison between the warmth of this and the alpha sv glove vs the zenta?
