3 season worthy
The best 3 season glove I have ever used. Very durable and wind / rain proof. They breath great too!
I really think these gloves are what I'm...
I really think these gloves are what I'm looking for. Just unsure how they will fit/wear with a liner. Would the power stretch glove be a suitable liner for lower temps?
It really depends on the application and what you mean by lower temps. I would be hesitant to take the combo you mention into the backcountry, in temps much below 18-20 degrees F. However, for daytripping in temps around/above 25 F, you should be fine. If working hard, you co uld get away with lower temps. Also, you can drop the shell when temps go up. Nice setup.
True Waterproof Quality Glove.
I used these gloves 35 days straight in Western Alaska on the Yukon delta region. It rains a lot with temps ranging between mid 30-mid 40 degrees. These gloves are bomb proof. I abused them pulling logs out of the Yukon River and I can say that these gloves are durable and worth every penny. The only thing I wasn't happy with was how long it took the gloves to dry, however that is every pair of gloves.
Mountain Hardwear Epic Glove
I purchased these for mountain biking. I wish these had been available years ago. So far I have worn them in the upper 30's and raining with light liners. Awesome. Hands not only stayed dry but didn't sweat inside glove. Worn in mid to low 40's without liners and with light liners same results. Using an eVent jacket there was no wicking from the jacket into the glove around the cuff. I now have 3 pair. If you normally wear a medium get a large if you want a liner in the glove. There fit is on the small side.
I've been using these gloves for a year now and have been very satisfied with the purchase. I use them primary for rainy conditions and some light snowy conditions, but nothing seriously cold. They have also excelled while mountain biking in rainy Pacific Northwest conditions. Its great to have a pair of waterproof gloves that aren't ski gloves or rubber gloves. The Outdry technology is amazing and 100% better than traditional Goretex material. Outdry eliminates the loose bladder seen in Goretex gloves and actually laminates the waterproof membrane to the outer layer. This ultimately leads to less water tension and increased breathability. Bottomline: great all around glove for wet and windy condition.
These block wind and water...
...but no more. These are perfect for skate skiing, shoulder season cycling, and warmer weather b/c skiing. They are very lightweight, and have virtually no insulation, which allows better breathability and dexterity. The rubberized palm is grippy and durable.
If you want a pair of gloves to keep the wind and water off your paws but no more, these are the best gloves you can buy.
A solid glove that protects your hands. Windproof and water resistant along with a velcro closure on the wrist area. Palm material helps you grab things and these are not bulky gloves. Typical Mountain Hardwear quality, have been durable so far.
These are not really warm gloves so I would not recommend them for sub-zero temps.
What is OutDry? Wonder no more...
Kept Digits from Drowning
Just took these trips on a winter trip to NZ and they performed better tnan expected on a raining kayak trip and a day of climbing on a glacier. Not the warmest glove in the world so you might need a liner for sub freezing, but kept me warm, dry and able to work a camera most anything else I needed to do. Real deal for a mid-weight glove you don't have to spend a benjamin or more on. Highly recommend.
Warm weather glove for sure
Very light weight, they breathed well kept my hands dry, but my hands did get a little cold at times. I prefer a bit warmer glove. Also the large seemed a biot on the smaller size than what I am used to.
These really are waterproof
I have gone through several brands of gloves that claimed to be waterproof, only to find they leak when put to the test. There is nothing worse than to be backpacking in 35 degree weather with it raining, and your "waterproof" gloves leak. Not only are these Epic gloves waterproof, but they breathe and don't make your hands sweat excessively. I love these gloves.
Bought these for a Tahoe ski trip- and they worked well. I sweat a lot, but my hands didn't get clammy or cold all day under pretty active conditions. I have been pleased with every MH purchase ive made so far- gear that performs well at a a reasonable price.
Let er rip is what it is!
Bought them -- wore them just this week for the first time. The gloves kept my hands dry when climbing in deep snow. It was very easy to manipulate my gps unit, but when removing the gloves and putting them back on several times on a 3 hour hike the lining ripped open at the gauntlet. That was a big bummer, I just don't expect that from MH. Sorry can not recommend them.
