Cheap fabric. Not durable.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just purchased these gloves and after using them just twice the fabric is pilling up like crazy. Turns out the fabric isn't Powerstretch but rather Marmot's house version of "stretch fleece." It's garbage. The gloves haven't had any abrasion with ski poles or velcro. Just rubbing against the softshell fabric of my jacket cuff is making them all pilled up and fuzzy. And who really cares if Marmot has a great warranty? I don't want a replacement of a poorly designed/cheaply made glove that is going to perform just the same. I live in a remote part of Canada so getting back to the retailer involves a $65 ferry trip and a ton of travel. Shipping them will cost me close to half of the $30 I paid. I guess I will just have to eat the cost and never, ever buy another Marmot product. Once a company starts cutting corners it's game over.

Pretty Filppin' Sweet

These gloves are awesome, very slim and the touch screen feature works flawlessly. Works great as driving or casual gloves, I also use mine as a liner for snowboarding, then I can access my phone with out freezing my hands off.

Durability

Would be nice gloves, but the lack of durability mentioned in another review is definitely an issue. These didn't even last six weeks (received them for Christmas gift). The silver fabric on the touch finger/thumb wears very quickly-- even when just using primarily as a glove liner. It seems that if the fabric inadvertently touches any velcro when taking off outer gloves for example, the fabric pulls apart and shreds.

In addition, one sewn seam on a finger also came apart. Even the primary black stretch fleece fabric pills quite a bit after relatively little use. Generally speaking, I'm not particularly hard on gear and Marmot is usually top quality, so I was surprised by my experience.

Excellent everyday glove.

These gloves are warm, fit great, and decently wind resistant. Nothing you'd wear in a gale, but more than enough to wear while driving or walking around. They're a nice fleece, so they've kept my hands warm when it's wet, too. The coolest part is the touchy finger things, which let you use your iPod with the gloves on, and they work a lot better than you'd think. However, although they're great gloves, the touchy finger part kind of seems to wear out kind of quickly under normal glove-wearing use... HOWEVER, with Marmot's awesome warranty, if they DO wear out, you can send them in and get a new pair. Also, the grippy on the palms is excellent, and I wish they had put some of it on the other fingers of the glove.

Bottom Line - Warm, awesome, and functional, but be careful what you touch.

how does this compare to TNF etip glove?

I liked the fit of this glove better than the etip, personally, but I can't comment on the durability of the etip. However, Marmot and Backcountry both have pretty fantastic return policies.
