a great lightweight glove
These are my go to gloves when there is a chill in the air. The gloves keep my hands dry and the cold wind off of them. They have held up to holding onto trekking poles for many miles. I don't think that they would do so well if you were pulling on rocks all that much. They are light and small enough to throw in the pack at the slightest forecast of cold weather. An all around great glove.
