Comfy, warm, waterproof for three days of skiing in VT, including some sweet powder. The fit was a little small - I bought them for my boyfriend who usually wears a large but the large was a little tight - XL fit better. Excellent overall value!
Do these have idiot cords?
Do these have idiot cords?
yes... mine broke off after a while.
Not a fan
So far this season I have worn these gloves in Vermont, Colorado, North Carolina and West Virginia in all temps and types of weather. Unfortunately, my hands have been cold the entire time. Not impressed. Gloves are great fit and finish - wise, just didn't keep my hands warm.
I'm not willing to pay for the price of an Arc'tyrx glove, but I have always had cold hands. I've determined that I have poor circulation in my hands compared to most, so I need a glove that will stay warm. These gloves have a great sticker price and I can't say enough about how my hands have felt in them. My hands were fine on a chilly day in Big Sky and I've had no problems with them. I think the Gore-Tex inserts really do the trick in these gloves and would recommend these gloves to anyone looking for a cheaper glove with great quality.
Nice glove, but not for me.
The first time I wore these gloves was up at Timberline last weekend on a bluebird day with the temp hovering around 27. Half the time my hands were cold, especially when on the lift. Rode with them Friday at Skibowl on another sunny day, temp around 32 and my hands seemed to stay warm, even after taking my hands out to take pics so I'd say if you only ski in primo conditions or spring ski then these would be awesome gloves but if you're going out in inclement weather and don't have the best circulation like me, don't get these. I bought these because I'm apprenticing with the Ski Patrol this season and needed a durable warm and dexterous glove. I just don't see these being useful on a crappy day when the wind is blowing and it's raining. The gore tex was of course waterproof and water beaded off, but the leather wetted out the first day and soaked through making my hands cold. I'm returning these and just ordered a pair of Kinco's. Hopefully all the hype about those is true...
This is he first pair of gloves that have lasted me my whole season...Or rather I was able to duck tape the fingers and get through the last 10 days. I am debating on buying another pair or looking for anther option. don't get me wrong for wht i put them through 57 daysis amazing! hence considering buying then again.
How do the sizes of these compare to Hestra...
How do the sizes of these compare to Hestra sizes? Specifically what size of these is the same as a Hestra 10?
They should be comparable. The numbered sizing on gloves refers to the circumference in inches around your knuckles (http://www.glove.org/glovemeasure.php).
very warm and wind proof, my hands were sweating on the mountain even when flying down the slopes.
I've had these gloves for about 4 winters now, and I've used them hard. While this is my first season of 100+ ski days, I've used them shoveling, snowballing, and skiing quite a few times, but they still look and work like they did right out of the box. They take a couple weeks to truly break in, but once you have broken them in, you'll never want to take them off. I've used them this winter up at Brighton in -10° temperatures and my hands didn't get cold AT ALL. This weekend, I used them in 45° temps on a backcountry trip and my hands didn't sweat AT ALL. These gloves are literally unbeatable; if they ever wear out (which I don't think will happen anytime soon), I will not hesitate to buy another pair.
I am constantly searching for good gloves because I have cold hands and also want the best features in a glove. These gloves fit the bill. Very warm, the wool lining is awesome. The insulation, gore-tex, gauntlet and other features make it a keeper. Great piece of gear.
Warm and Dry
I normally always get cold hands, and I mean always. I took these out in 0 degree weather and was fine. What a relief to finally have gloves that are fairly dexterous, warm, and dry as a bone.
These are great, sturdy, warm gloves. However, haven't tested them on the snows yet so can't give more stars.
These are "rougher" looking in real life than in the pictures. The pictures on the website make them look really smooth, which is what I expected so I was a little disappointed.
I got these gloves last year, love 'em. I ski as much as I can in Utah, and I have not had a day yet where they were not warm enough. The leather seems very durable as well, lots of carrying skis, unbuckling boots, etc... and no cuts yet. One of the little straps that you can put on your jacket did pull out, but I never use them so it wasn't a big problem. Always love a nice soft nose wipe on the lift as well.
where are the nose and goggle wipes? it...
where are the nose and goggle wipes? it says they are there... but as i hold my new gloves, i don't see em.
It's the soft part on the back of your thumb.
nope, not there.
I got these last year and they have a google wipe on one thumb and a soft nose wipe on the other...
On the back of each thumb. That little rubber piece on your left thumb that sticks out like a wiper blade? That's the goggle wipe. That soft, chamois-like fabric on your right thumb? There's your insta-tissue.
Just received the gloves today. I live on the east coast in the US and am absolutely fiending for some snow so I can get out on the slopes and test these bad boys out. I replied because I have to agree with mcm3002184: there's NO goggle nor nose wipe on these gloves so the description should be updated to reflect that. Nevertheless, these seem to be extremely high-quality gloves. I can upload a high-res image of the gloves if anyone wants it.
Good enough to use on a motorcycle at 60mph in 26F weather. Real good quality leather and fabrics- you can tell as soon as you touch them.
pretty decent gloves
these gloves are definetely better than the Burton I had but I wish the would be a little better as far a waterproof. They are warm and good material.
