Marmot's Randonnee Glove Rocks!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

From the backcountry to the back yard... from -8 to 98 deg F... this glove just about covers it all. Iowa winters can get below -10 deg F actual temp and below -50 deg F wind chill temp and these gloves get worn when it's coldest. There's nothing like cinching down the elastic gauntlet "Quick-Draws" AND the adjustable wrist strap to seal out what Mother Nature dishes out. And who doesn't want gloves with "Falcon Grip"? My size large pair comes in at 8.3 oz. Recommended.

Good All Purpose Glove

I used this glove last season while ski patrolling up in North Carolina. The biggest issue there is when its cold and rainy. This glove worked great to keep out the water and keep my hands warm. The only 2 issues I had was that the glove runs a bit small and sometimes it was too warm. So if you have a hot hand and are going to be in warmer climates you might need to look for another glove. I bought these gloves my self but I do review and test products for gore sometimes through the Mountaintech program.

Ideal resort glove

Now well into the fourth season with these gloves and still love em. Averaging about a dozen ski days per season, I'd say durability is not much of an issue. They are warm and stay dry in the right conditions (great breathability). Not for warm days or frigid BC excursions, but perfect for all day resort rippin sessions most of the ski season. They are always ready to go the morning after if left out over night. The fit is great and has a very comfy lining. Not the most dexterous of gloves but they don't need to be. Would buy again for a resort glove replacement.

Quality Glove

Best glove I've ever owned. I was a little worried reading some negative reviews on build quality especially in the palm region. However, after taking these on a trip where all I did was ski for almost two weeks straight, I have not seen any signs of these wearing at all. They've kept my hands warm and dry. Obviously if its super windy and very cold a mitten would be warmer, the only time i ever felt a little cold in my fingers was with wind whipping on the lift. Making a fist solved the problem within a minute.

Great so far!

I'm on my second season on these gloves. 13 days so far this season and my hands are never cold. The gloves are definitely damp by the end of the day but dry overnight on the heater and geed to go the next day.

Poor Durability

I was very optimisic about these gloves. A Gore-Tex glove for 100 buck. The fit was great and the wrist straps were a nice touch for taking them off while on the chairlift. But after 10 days use the palms started to rip in multiple locations on both gloves. And I am not one who is particulaily hard on my gear. I sent them back. Thank goodness for Backcountry's return policy.

Great For 100 Bucks

The warmth is very good and the quality is good but not exceptional. I base this observation on the fact I bought some Hestra XCR gloves at the same time. I do like Marmot gear having two jackets, but for truly exceptional gloves, get the Hestra XCR. On the defense of the Marmots, this is the best Gore-Tex glove I have found for $100.

Leather ripped at the seam on both gloves in the same spot on my FIRST use. Not doing anything unusual or hard on them either, my $30 dakine gloves were much tougher. They did seem pretty warm and I'm sure they're probably nice and waterproof too. I thought I was getting a leather glove that would be extra durable and last a long time but it turns out to be really, really shoddy manufacturing.

Great gloves!

These gloves perform great. I've used them many times in Sierras' wet snow. The Gore-Tex is awesome, but remember the glove will wet out. Your hands will stay dry, but the glove will remain wet. I do not use these for skiing, I use them for building snow shelters, and showshoeing. Great gloves.

Adequate Plus

Have worn these several times skiing here in the northeast and some of those conditions were very cold. The warmth level was adequate but on the coldest days liners were necessary. So far my gloves, including the palms, have held up fine.

Will not last

The gloves were comfortable and were one of the warmest pair of gloves I have had. Unfortunately, in less than 15 days of skiing, the palm of one glove tore severely from poling in the lift line. Upon returning under warranty, Marmot states that they can not repair the glove. Instead, they offered me a 100 dollar credit. I need a pair of gloves, not a credit, since Marmot has no other acceptable gloves.

Disappointing for the price

There I was, at the top of Mary Jane at Winter Park, CO, in the middle of a snowstorm, knee deep in powder. The skiing was great, but my fingers were cold, wearing these gloves. I'll be sending them back.

Marmot Randonee

I take a ''true'' 2XL glove and this one fits ! Needed for extreme weather cycling ( teens). It was not warm enough, but they had enough room to wear glove liners. Now I can go out in any weather without fear of numb fingers !

Randonnee Fandonnee

Arguably the best glove that I've ever had the fortune of owning and I'm a true Randonnee convert. Don't expect me to buy anything else but these for as long as they make them. I wear them over the cuff (even though you could wear them under) and have been skiing in various conditions this season from Western powder in the teens to Mid-Atlantic slush and ice in the 40s and they've held up well. Probably the best feature in my mind has been the gauntlet cynch. It's quick and easy to use and so far has proven durable. The cynch on the wrist is also quality and user-friendly even with your gloves on. Dexterity in the fingers is pretty good and the insulation has kept my fingers warm throughout the day. The only negligible issue I've had is if you get the liner wet from sweat it can be a little more cumbersome to get off your hand... That said however, the liner and insulation seem to dry fairly quickly. If you haven't used these yet I'd definitely recommend them.

Great Gloves

Just returned from two trips and used these gloves exclusively. Temps ranged from mid teens to mid thirties. They held up to everything and my hands only were a little cold a couple of times. No need for liners.

Best part...if you happen to take your gloves off to adjust gear and then put them back on and forget to dry your hands first, no problem, these gloves are dry by the time you finish your run.

Marmot Randonee

I purchasesd the new Marmot Randonee Glove because I had been using an older model Ranndonee, that eventually ripped apart on me. I bought just for the fact that I knew how great my old ones were, so I imagined the new ones could only be better. I WAS WRONG!!! Although thje gloves are durable (for the most part) and VERY warm and dry, the leather on the palm and fingers is as weak as can be. I ripped through the leather while breaking them in on the first day of having them. Since then, only more rips/tears have appeared. Soon enough I will need to replace them because snow is starting to get in. Keep in mind these $100 gloves have only been used about 5 days on the mountain, and are less than 30 days (or so) old. Very disappointed in Marmot. My opinion of their product has SEVERELY declined as of recently. I say go with Hestra, Burton, Swamy, Etc. Marmot has drastically fallen from grace with the quality of their products. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

Why didn't you return them if they ripped on the first day? I'm sure they would have replaced them. Maybe you got a bad pair.

Warm and Dry

Tried these because I've had great success with my Marmot Work Gloves. The Randonnee kept my hands warm and dry just as I expected they would. I've had my Marmot Work Gloves for years, working Construction in the Winter, and they have held up beautifully. I expect the same with the Randonnee

Can anyone tell me if these gloves come...

Can anyone tell me if these gloves come with a removable gore-tex liner...??

Best Answer Responded on


These gloves have a gore-tex insert which keeps water out and insulation, but they aren't removable. The gore-tex insert and insulation are an integral part of the glove.

No Love without the Glove

Skiing - bottom line is that I did not even think about my gloves until the day on the mountain was done. I was comfortable and I could handle poles easily and adjust my boot buckles. The leashes on each glove were handy when I had to take off my gloves to use my cellphone while on the mountain. The gloves cinch tight at the wrist and at the top of the gauntlet as well. Snow never got into my glove even when I ventured into the trees and took a spill in 3 feet of pow. Upon recovery, I ski-bushwacked through saplings to get back to the groomers and no damage to the gloves. The soft nose wipe section on the thumb is useful. My hands never overheated. At the end of the day I noticed my gloves were soaked from my hands sweating and was surprised. I was so comfortable I never gave a thought about it. I did not use liners and do not think they are necessary with these gloves. The only thing I can not attest to is durability. How long will they last? Hopefully someone who has used these over time will chime in. As for initlal performance - love the glove! Got them for $90. Well worth the dough.
