How does the Hestra Ski Glove compare to the Backcountry Stoic glove in terms of warmth and dexterity? Pro's and Con's? For Mountaineering.

Thank you

They're both low-profile ski gloves, so they're light for mountaineering, but the Stoic is every bit as warm and dexterous, in my opinion. Possibly warmer.

Run to the stoic to see my answer...

Stoic is thicker and lined with wool. Thus, it should be warmer even if wet. Trade off is the Hestra is more Dextrous. Both are high quality, so it comes down to what temps you're working in and/or how easily your digits get cold.
