Quality construction, warm glove

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

This glove can almost be too warm when doing simple things like walking the dog or active use like snowshoeing or shoveling snow on a mild day.

They've kept me warm while snowmobiling into the low teens without liners. I wear a pair of liners with them when the temps get to zero or below.

The waterproofing has held up fine even while using my hands to dig in snow. No complaints!

Toasty Warm!

  • Gender: Male
  • Fit: True to size

I took these gloves with me on my Jackson Hole ski trip. I'd heard it was cold, and I wanted a high quality glove to keep my fingers warm. These are the best gloves I've ever owned, by far. My hands were always warm on the mountain, where we were skiing in temps anywhere from 1 - 20 degrees Fahrenheit. True, when we came out of the lodge, they sometimes took a few minutes to warm up, but nothing that detracts from my satisfaction with the glove. Hands stayed dry . I put a boot dryer in them at the end of the day. The fit is great, the precurve is helpful. Love 'em.

How hard do you Play?

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

It's a snug fit, the precurve helps, I wear xxl in many gloves but the xl does fit. My hands do not get cold even when they are soaking wet with parts of the shell frozen. I run two pair just in case I slip and let the first pair freeze over. They slide on wet! I have no idea how the gloves work in a casual environment. At the end of five hours of go, two liters of water, a few power snacks all I can say is. Thank you MH for helping be bust the myth staying dry is staying warm! Play hard and watch out for them trees!

One of my go to gloves for cold(er) days

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

I got a pair of these a couple years ago at a local store for a similar price they are listed on the BC outlet for now. They feel worth the ~$65 to me. They have been every bit as functional, more dextrous, and slightly better constructed than the Black Diamond Prodigys that I paid a good bit more for earlier that season.

They have been great for me for temps down to around 15F sans additional liner w/ none of the cold spots mentioned in the other review. Only time my fingers have got uncomfortably cold in these is when the temps were either too warm (say 30F +) for the level of insulation leading to sweaty hands in turn leading to cold hands, or when it was sub 10F. I think at that point I'd probably be looking for mittens.

They are plenty water and windproof in my experience and have held up pretty darn well so far with about 60 days of mostly front side with a bit of side country type usage.

I personally like that the insulation stops at the gauntlet. It means that I don't have try and stuff my base and mid layers (or base, mid, and outer if going over the cuff) into a big, puffy, grabby gauntlet or push my sleeves up my forearms every time I put them on.

is the gauntlet area insulated? or does...

is the gauntlet area insulated? or does the insulation end at the wrist seal?

Dbl layered but not insulated like the glove body.

cold spots, poor construction

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

This glove is poorly constructed. the sewn in lining must have gaps, voids, or missed spots because when you are skiing, certain fingers in certain locations feel like there is no lining at all. In general I find that mountain hardware has changed some major things in quality control since producing huge quantity now and no consistency. also fit is horrible as the fingers may fit but you can't get into the glove because of a very small wrist opening. avoid this product.

dvt. Thanks for your comments. If you think these gloves were made incorrectly or the quality is not what it should be... please send them back to Mountain Hardwear for inspection. I have been using our Jalapeno Glove as a belay glove while ice climbing and as a backcountry ski glove on cold days for 2 years now and have found them to be warm, fit well (due to pre-curve in the fingers), totally waterproof (thanks to OutDry and QShield), and durable as I have put them through the wringer. Also, our quality control has not changed over time. It is the same if not better than any of our competitors. We do not make huge quantities of these gloves. Due to fit, insulation, OutDry, and QSheild... Mountain Hardwear gloves are the most innovative on the market hands down.

Please send them back if you are not happy. Thanks!

unfortunately I sent them back to BC where I bought them. it all looks good on paper, but my gloves were flawed, seriously NOT warm on the mildest of ski days. thanks for your concern. I will say everyone wants to know what is the effect of Columbia buying your company. I'm very skeptical at this point.

I would have to agree with DVT. I bought mine last year after frustration with several pairs of inferior gloves. I thought that by spending more than I was used to on a quality brand, I would get some quality gloves. I use these for mainly just snow-blowing my driveway in New England. The use first use this season was fine. However, wearing them last night in the cold (low 20s) I experienced a couple of cold fingers. I tried using glove liners this AM when finishing up and the same fingers were still frozen.
