Quality gloves

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

The first day I wore them they were phenomenal but as other reviews mentioned the leather got wet, but instead of treating them with a product like niko wax i treated them with hestra leather balm and I have not experienced this problem again.

Great All Around Glove

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

Review of Acteryx Zenta AR Glove with Primaloft 200gram insulation purchased at the end of season 2013. The build quality is top notch and my initial impression was 5 + stars. On the second day of using them the leather got soaked but didn?t wet into the inner glove. I treated them with Sno Seal and have never have had that problem again. I know Acteryx doesn?t recommend it but I did so anyways.
I used them skiing, outdoor ice skating, tubing and snow shoveling from -15 to 30 deg. F. I found these to be the best all around glove I have ever owned , hence AR. Not once have my hands been cold or too hot. Any colder and it?s time for expedition mitts and any warmer spring gloves. I was so impressed with these gloves and was still able to find the older version (not Coraloft) mittens that I purchased a pair for my teenage daughter because of the extra insulation found with the Primaloft version.
Pros. Highest quality build, soft leather, awesome chinch gauntlet, and no break in time.
Cons. While I personally can?t find anything I dislike about these after using Sno Seal some may because of the lack of a nose wipe feature. I feel the back is so soft it can be used just fine for this. I had two other brands which the soft nose wipe deteriorated anyways.

Great design!

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

I have tried so many gloves and these are my favorite. I love the design. Very durable and require no significant maintenance (no conditioner needed for the really nice leather). They have the coolest draw cord to seal out snow that are so easy to use. They are also very warm for most days. I get really cold hands (ask my wife!), but 18 degrees F and up these do the job great. Any colder and I add heat packets. Anyone with normal hands would have no problem. I just love Arcteryx products and these gloves are no exception!

Loose liner was a dealbreaker

Like most Arc'teryx gear, these are beautifully crafted, with excellent attention to detail. I'm 6'2" with largish hands, and the XL fit fairly well; the fingers and glove in general are fairly wide and roomy, which is not great in my opinion, as I find that a snug fit yields better dexterity. I could have lived with this, but the real killer for me was that the liners of these gloves are rather bulky and are joined to the shell only at the fingertips. When backcountry skiing or climbing, I often remove my gloves to fiddle with skins or dive into my pack; with these, if my hands are even a bit damp it's damn near impossible to get them back on without the liners bunching up in the fingers. The thumb is particularly bad, as it's attached to the shell only on the back of the glove, where your thumbnail would be; I could feel lots of slop between the liner and the shell in the thumb, which made gripping things pretty tough. These might be OK for resort skiing or anyone who plans to put them on and rarely remove them. I returned these; the RAB guide gloves were way better in this regard; those are my go-to glove from now on.

Bulky

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Pros: Warm, waterproof, easy to use and quality sealing cuffs. Arcteryx always uses great materials and makes quality stuff

Con: really bulky throughout the hand, I bet some of this insulation would pack down with use, but not enough for me

Also: fingers seemed short and stubby, the hand fit with room to spare and my fingers found the end of the glove, the webbing between my thumb and forefinger was pronounced in the glove as well. This is not something I've experienced with gloves before, just something to consider for your fit.

Solid as always

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've never bought anything from Arc'teryx that I thought was anything less than amazing, and these gloves are the same. Construction is top-shelf, and they're as warm as you'd want for anything in the lower 48.

Not warm

These gloves have some good features such as waterproof, breathable, good build quality etc. But they aren't much warmer than my Sigma lt gloves. The 200 grams of primaloft insulation just isn't enough.

These gloves only weigh 8 ounces and I think as far as gloves are concerned, the heavier they are, the warmer they are going to be(some exceptions).
I exchanged them for some Marmot ultimate guide gloves (which weigh 13 ounces) and they are significantly warmer and cost $20 less.

Responded on

The glove is lighter/thinner and you're complaining that it's less warm? That's like buying a linger glove and complaining it's not as warm as a mitten. It's relative. It doesn't mean it's a 3 star glove, it means you would use it in conditions requiring less warmth than a 13oz glove.
