Returned these gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
These "waterproof" gloves became soaking wet throughout on the second use. It was a typical wet snow day in the northwest. Probably right around 32 degrees with some fairly wet snow coming down. After skiing a mere 3 hours the glove interior became completely saturated. By comparison my kid's water resistant mittens remained significantly drier during this time. It took another 4 days to dry out the gloves. Very disappointing...
Serious Glove for Mountain Ops

These have great fit. I don't have the dexterity of an 80 year old when wearing them. I can do fine tuned work with them on. The shell material sheds water really well. The inside is soft and warm but also dries quickly. Your hands will get cold gripping ice tools at -8 degrees, but once the rubber grips warm up its not too bad. The palm is thick enough to rappel with and supple enough to belay with. Haven't worn them with liners, but they would be super warm. The cinches on the gauntlets work great for clamping down around your jacket, and they've got little budddy tabs that you pull to uncinch them. Works reliably. They don't have dummy cords for your wrists but they do have loops at the wrists if you wanted that capability. These are hardcore gloves for mountaineers. Probably not completely waterproof, but close enough. I'm not sure what the little loop on the back of the ring finger is for. If anyone knows, send me a message
First, for sizing, I am about a #1 camelot handsize and the XS works great for me in these gloves. I used them this spring for a lot of ski mountaineering applications and they allowed for a great deal of dexterity with ropes and climbing as well as good protection from wind, cold air, and wet snow. Lots of stretch, great fit, and very comfortable.
