Description

For work or play.

The snow blower is busted, so you ditch the random mittens and grab your high-performance Marmot Spring Gloves out of the ski closet for some quality time with the shovel. This heavy duty all-around glove works just as well for shoveling as it does for spring skiing, snowboarding, and mountaineering.
  • MemBrain waterproof breathable insert keeps you hands dry and comfortable
  • High-pile DriClime lining provides extra warmth and wicks moisture away for a nice, non-soggy hand environment
  • Goatskin palm enhances grip and durability
  • Articulated Falcon Grip gives you excellent dexterity for gripping poles or adjusting bindings
  • Soft fabric patch helps you deal with a pesky runny nose

Use for photography

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I use these gloves for photography in cooler temps down to about 20 to 25 degrees and they do a good job of keeping my hands warm . They have a nice feel to them with the leather palm and allow for operation of the basic control dials and shutter. The only negative I found was not in the performance of the glove, but the sizing. IMHO, they tend to run big. Other than that, these glove work as advertised keeping the cold winds, rain and snow out.

Worked great for winter backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Have had these for about a month and used them on a day trip snowshoeing and a long weekend backpacking trip in the Sierras. The snowshoeing trip had temps in the low 40s and these were almost too warm. However, their waterproofness and comfort were appreciated during an impromptu snowball fight.

For the weekend backpacking trip these were awesome. Temps ranged from the high teens to low 30s during the day. Got snowed on a couple times, went glissading, dug snow shelters and tables, and never once did these gloves let me down. They were great while active, and kept my hands warm on chilly mornings.

The fit can be a little tight when your hands are cold or wet. But once you get your hand in they truly fit like a glove and give reasonably good dexterity.

Update to Fits like a glove...

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

Now that we are partway through the winter season, I need to update my review of these gloves. I have ice climbed in with these 5 times and done 4 backcountry tours and the stiching along the fingers(more than one) is starting pull.

I love the fit, breath-ability, warmth and dexterity. But the durability is definitely not bomber.

for me. These happen to fit my hands better than other brands. Great for Ice Climbing.

Perfect Spring Skiing Gloves

Great gloves, especially for the price. Much better solution for me than a 3 in 1 glove. And as other have noted, these gloves were perfect on a partly cloudy day that started out at about 20F. My only negative is that they are a little tight to get on,but I have wide hands.

Love these gloves!

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

Love -- LOVE -- these gloves! Bought them to wear as a base pair when skiing (I wear a shell mitt over them) and have been quite pleased. Even though they are advertised as a "Spring Glove" they were more than warm enough on a cold day and when it warmed up and started sleeting, I shed the mitt and wore just the gloves. They kept my hands warm and dry!

Great lightweight glove

Really nice gloves. The leather's really supple and grips well and the softshell fabric on the back of the hand breathes well. These keep my hands warm while hiking/skinning down to about 20F (maybe lower but I haven't tested them that cold), but because they are thin I'll get cold hands when carrying an axe at those temps. I think it's a good balance of insulation and dexterity though; I can put on and adjust my crampons without taking these gloves off. My only complaint is that water seems to get through the seams when the day warms up and the snow gets wet, I assume because the seams aren't taped. Generally a minor issue as I'm usually on my way out by the time this happens. Bottom line, I lost my first pair of these and I'm buying another pair, no hesitation.
