Less than zero.
A lot of companies make gloves that can stand up to the weather all the way down to zero degrees. The Mountain Hardwear Minus One Glove takes it another step. The glove’s waterproof breathable OutDry membrane protects you from the elements, and is bonded directly to the shell for less float between layers and a great fit. Keeping a grip on your leashless tools is not an issue thanks to the sticky Pittards reinforcements on the goatskin palm, and stretchy corded nylon on the back of the hand offers great fit and comfort.
- Durable nylon shell with soft fleece lining
- Tough goatskin leather palm
- Q.Shield durable water repellant keeps water from soaking into shell
- OutDry waterproof breathable laminate keeps your hand dry without clamminess
- Stretch fabric on back for easy bending without binding

Very strange fit
Spec and material-wise, this glove is perfect. Unfortunately, though, the thumb is a good 3/4 inch longer than it should be. The extra material really gets in the way when trying to manipulate gear (biners, screws, etc.). FWIW, I have large hands (XL), but I have had zero problems with thumb length with other manufacturers. I'm not sure where MH is getting their hand dimensions, but clearly they aren't for me.
I really like these gloves. I used them for a few days at Ouray. They are pretty warm for how much dexterity you have and seem to be holding up better than the previous reviewer's experience. I normally wear an XL in OR gloves, and the L fit me pretty well. Very waterproof, windproof, and relatively warm. Good stuff.
Not looking good...
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I haven't even used these gloves yet and already have problems with the leather. I put them palm to palm in my pack (not stuffed or with anything sharp) and the leather scuffed and is peeling. The scuff wasn't there when the gloves arrived... maybe the leather cracked, not sure. I expected more from Mountain Hardwear. I have other gloves from them and had high hopes for this one... but they were quite the let down.
Other than the seriously questionable durability, the fit was good, a little uncomfy if the cuff was tightened, had to keep it a little loose. But other than that the insulation seemed warm and dexterity was great.
Give these gloves a go, maybe mine were just an isolated event (hope so, MHW is a quality company). My pair however is going back to BC.
