The sun may shine, but the canyon still can't shake the freezing temps, so slip on the merino wool Ibex Shak Two-Layer Glove before you go for your jog, snowshoe, or tour through the chill. When you've just got the cold to contend with, this glove's two layers of breathable but insulating merino wool keeps your fingers warm and comfortable while getting your essential winter weather exercise.

  • The natural merino wool from New Zealand provides a soft feel that wicks moisture, dries quickly, retains heat, and reduces odor growth throughout the winter
  • A water-resistant leather palm lets you tighten your snowshoes or ski bindings without getting wet, cold fingers
  • The short, knit cuff features a hook-and-loop tab to secure the glove and not add too much bulk or weight to your strides

Two Seasons of Warmth and Still Great

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

I've used these gloves on the bike and for two trips (two years) to snow country to Nordic ski, and from the teens to the fifties, these are comfortable, great on ski poles or handlebars, and they're made from my favorite wool fabric, Ibex' Shak (I own and use these Shak garments almost daily: Vest, 2 Jerseys, PO Hoody, FZ Shaket; from 70 degrees to single digits, alone or as a layer). Wear has been excellent, and I'm certain based on current use and wear patterns, I'll get another few years of use out of them before I buy a new pair.

Fantastic while they last

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

I bought these for winter camping and cycling (commuting, mainly, but I ride fast for someone who's not a racer wannabe). They are fantastic for what I want: highly breathable while still being warm in a chilly wind, somewhat abrasion-resistant on the palm and fingers due to the leather, machine-washable, warm. I cycle with them down to about -3C and then add liners.

After a season of light-ish use, they are tearing where the leather meets the wool on the index finger, and in a few other spots as well. They were so good for my needs that I might even buy another pair, but they're awfully expensive for a disposable item.

Great quality wool. Good looking glove.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

My hand is about 7.5 inches around and also 7.5 inches from the crease at the base of the palm to the tip of my middle finger. I wear the medium, and it fits well, however the fingers are a little long for me (maybe 0.25 inch). Ibex has a lot of items that are produced in the USA (of New Zealand-sourced wool) but note that these gloves are made in Sri Lanka. I would say that the durability is average for a knit glove -- it is good around town or for running/snowshoeing/xc skiing, but I wouldn't expect it to last long with rough use.

Floppy around town gloves

    These gloves are great for what they are, but don't ask them to be much more. They look like they would be streamlined and form fitting in the photo, but they are actually kind of floppy. I wear an XL or a size 10 in most gloves and the length on these is good, so I know the XL was the right choice in these. As mentioned above, durability isn't the best. I would restrict use to casual wear and that is about it. Lastly, the "Rusty Root" color is not nearly as subdued as I thought it would be. It is pretty vibrant for a tan and brown, so it isn't going to blend in, it is going to stand out. I don't think I would recommend these, they aren't a bad glove per se, they just aren't for me and I doubt any of my friends would appreciate them.

    Great, almost

      These are awesome gloves - but the durability sucks. I used them for a season as a daily glove living in AK - both around town and while backcountry skiing. I wouldn't say I'm terribly hard on my gear, but they are already showing small holes where the knitting of the wool has pulled away from the seams. Little disappointing for the price!
