Great Gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really enjoy these gloves. I wanted something simple and warm and I like the softshell / leather combination. Not a huge fan of the "honey" colored leather but the black has a clean classic look. We'll have to see how they do when I get them out skiing. Plan to use them with a Helly Hansen HHDry liner glove.

Does the sleeve of the glove stretch so that the glove can be put on without undoing the velcro tab?

Best Answer Responded on

Depending on your wrist size you may be able to get it on without undoing the velcro. Most likely though you will have to undo the velcro or leave it really loose.

Giving Them A Break

Giving Them A Break

I've had the Backcountry.com Cottonwood gloves for a few weeks and been hammering them hard. Today was an opportunity to give one a break on one of the Utah's Cottonwood canyon's peaks.

Warmth, Great Price, Sharp Looking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So far I'm impressed with these gloves and the price is right. I've used them from hiking the Backcountry, cycling and hanging out at camp. My biggest complaint is the wrist cinch which is totally a pain. I'd like to see them just use the old velcro, hook and loop system and bag the cinch strap that is incorporated with the current velcro strap. It's just plain difficult to work with in cold weather. Using Nikwax is highly suggested as with all leather gloves and you can pick that up here at Backcountry.com http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-creme-waterproofing-wax-for-leather

Decent gloves, not for real cold weather

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I went for a hike when the temperature was 16F and had to keep my fingers balled up in the palm of the glove to keep them warm. But when I went snowboarding at 25F and they were fine. I agree with other comments that the wrist fit and Velcro is a little tight and short. The sizing also seems to run small as I measured my hand according to the sizing chart and the recommended size just barely fits. A snug fit doesn't help with warmth. I would have benefitted from next size up but I don't feel like going through the hassle of returning them.

Warm, breathable, durable and feel good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the Stoic Paragon but will add a review here anyway (as I believe they are the same glove). These a really great gloves. They are warm enough (down to 15 or so) don't absorb water much (I do treat them to snow seal every so often) breath well enough for warm days and fit like a, wait for it,,,,,, a glove. I use these for snowboarding, driving, dog walking (and dog crap picking up) and all the other things you can do outside. They have a nice low profile, fit under a cuff and close up nicely. I alternate between these and the Stoic Duke (looks like the bc wasatch glove) The only drawback, pun intended, is that when I pull on the glove it engages the strap that seals the cuff around the wrist. This is not really a problem and I appreciate the good cuff closure, just a bit of an inconvenience when you are in a hurry to put on the glove. If you like leather gloves, and like BC (and we all do)then get these. Other gloves I have used like this are the Stoic Dukes, Flylow tough guys and the Black Diamond Dirt Bag. I really like the Dirt Bags but the BC ones are a bit warmer. Either way you can not go wrong!

Nice Gloves

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

Bought these for a friend and this is their feedback:

"great for the price point. they keep me warm from 6 A.M till 5 pm. then only time i have had them get soggy was spending all day building jumps.(but that's expected)"

My digits love me for getting these!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Warm, waterproof, tactile, and just really well made. What else would you want from a glove. The only thing that kept them from 5 stars is the wrist cinch. While it is a very cool design, if you happen to take your gloves on and off frequently, it can be a bit cumbersome. But that is just a personal preference and the fact that I have to work in them. GREAT glove!

Unanswered Question

How well would these perform if applied...

How well would these perform if applied to ice climbing and moutaineering? I've looked at the OR Contact and Warrant and quite frankly, the Warrant is too expensive, and feel like leather is the way to go for durability (i'm rough on my stuff).

Thanks for the input!

Worth the money, plus some.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So far, I have worn these gloves as a ticket checker at Snowbird for 40 hours a week for the past 4 weeks, then snowboarded in them on my weekends off. In that time I have stood outside in 0 degrees to 40 degrees Fahrenheit weather. In 0 degrees the Superloft insulation kept my hands nice and warm, even though I wasn't moving around a ton. When it was 40 degrees and snowing/freezing rain, the merino/fleece and leather combination wicked sweat away keeping my hands from being sopping wet, then dried over night for the next cold day on the slopes. If you're looking for a great priced glove that will get you comfortably through those colder and warmer days, then you've found it.

Nice gloves for the price

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

These gloves are a great purchase for the price. I wouldn't necessarily call them waterproof. I am going to buy some Nikwax ( http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-creme-waterproofing-wax-for-leather ) to try to make them more water resistant. I bought them as a gift and the first time they were wore while snowboarding they got fairly wet. (This won't be an issue if you don't spend too much time falling ;) ) but I expect the Nikwax to fix that problem. I borrowed them for a day while at Steamboat riding and they were perfectly warm enough for the day. Definitely a good buy for the price, although I prefer to go with Gore-tex gloves myself for the slopes.

Great Glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I usually get cold hands and bought these gloves to use on days ranging from -15 to 0+ celcius. I wore these in -20c one day while skiing and my hands where not warm at all. All the other features are awesome. The closure system is tidy and works great, they are very waterproof and the leather is durable and looks great. In all, an awesome glove for an awesome price!

Great quality gloves!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I mainly use these gloves on colder riding days. They work great and keep my hands warm, cozy and dry. They have a great waterproof rating - I haven't had any problems with them wearing out or seams coming out.

Does anyone know if this works for...

Does anyone know if this works for waterproofing these gloves? http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-creme-waterproofing-wax-for-leather?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6d2F0ZXJwcm9vZmluZzoxOjE6d2F0ZXJwcm9vZmluZw
I bought them as a gift for my boyfriend and his hands were soaked after a fairly wet day today. He's a beginner so probably spends more time falling and putting his hands in the snow than normal but I read these can work for skiing.

I used to use the nikwax leather care stuff for my flylow gloves and leather boots. It works great for a while before you have to reapply. I've since been using sno seal. I doesn't work as well (water doesn't bead) but it seems to last longer.

Awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was nervous to buy these not seeing them in person but I'm very happy I pulled the trigger. They are VERY warm/comfortable and the leather outside feels great. Got mine in Black/Charcoal and very happy with the product. (Mt. Hood, PDX OR.)

Paragon replacement

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves are great. Essentially the replacement to the Stoic Paragon glove. Microsuede snot wipe is awesome and always needed. Soft, warm and supple on the inside. Tough and rugged on the outside just the way a leather glove should be. Reinforced leather palms make slicing via ski edges damn near impossible. My favorite part about this glove is the wrist closure system. No messing around with long dangly bungee things, just pull back on the velcro tab, tightens right up. Great for skiing or doing virtually anything in the cold. Fits true to size.

Awesome gloves!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally decided to upgrade to some nice leather gloves and these do not disappoint. The leather is really soft and flexible and easy to ski with. The closure system is a little funky at first but you get used to it and it provides a snug, secure closure to keep snow out.
Nice and warm gloves, these are a great choice for gloves!

Warm and flexible

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've used these gloves once now at Snowbasin resort. They fit well and kept my hands warm during temps in the 20s. The only con I have with them is minimal wrist coverage, so my wrists/lower arm was exposed.

Affordable - high quality gloves

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I originally got these for myself. I got a medium, and it fit too small. I fit into a medium for most other gloves etc. Maybe the leather would fit around my hand, but I ended up giving them to my sister and she loves them. They're extremely warm for their weight. Leather is super high quality and the goats looks awesome. Padding is great for glading and keeping warmth in. Fits small for sure though.

What is the return policy on these gloves?...

What is the return policy on these gloves? I noticed that they don't have a fully wrapped finger tip and I have had problems in the past with the seam opening in these spots after a few seasons. I'm an instructor so I spend a lot of time with my hands in the snow which causes wear in this particular area. Warranty/return policy?
