Couldn't hold up for a year
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
I have had the gloves for about a year now and up to this point they have been great gloves. They were one of the warmest pairs that I have owned and truly water proof. All of this means nothing when the gloves can't hold up for even a year. Keep in mind these are the top of the line gloves that MH sells. The actual use of the gloves can vary a lot of a year so to give you a better idea I would say that I had between 30-60 days of actual glove ware over that time.
The gloves started to break down on the insides. The lining on that inside that holds in the insulation became more and more loose. Eventually it tore completely making it impossible to put the glove on. I can understand if this happened to one of the gloves but it has actually happened to both. One is worse then the other but the other is coming along.
Now i'm stuck in the middle of climbing season in the NW without a good pair of gloves. I wanted to warranty the gloves but i'm told it will take between 8-10 weeks. What good does that do me?
Cool Glove, Tighter Fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Seems like a great glove. i lover the mountain harwear technology, and they save you the step of nikwaxing the leather. however, the gauntlet is harder to cinch up than other gloves, and i don't like not having strap to tighten the wrist nor leashes for the gloves.
those are all personal preference, the main issues is sizing. the glove has a much tighter girth than other gloves of the same finger length. i have fairly normal-sized hands, so it seems like you'd need to order these with extra finger length to get the right girth.
Latest and Greatest from MH
MH put all of the greatest technology in this glove. It is super dry, great fit, and good dexterity for a cold weather glove. Very happy with this glove, it is my standard glove for cold VT skiing. Only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is it is best to be used above 15-20 degrees F. Anything below that, I have to go for a mitten.
