Description

Stay warm and keep a grip in wet, snowy weather.

You may have your day of ice climbing organized to the last detail, but you can never count on the weather; prepare yourself for the worst conditions in the Mountain Hardwear Minus One Glove. 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.

runs small

Great glove but seems to run small. I always take a medium but the medium on this particular glove runs small so have sent them back for a large and look forward to getting them and experiencing them in the snow and ice.
Update got the large and man what a glove amazed how thin but warm these are been using them in the backcountry skiing and on the snowmobile to get out there they dont seem to get wet apart from a little sweaty...just have to make sure you take the time to pull them off slowly otherwise like most gloves the inner will come out of the fingers. Also I did waterproof the leather section of the gloves.

Waterproof, but....

I bought these gloves for ice climbing because the ones I normally use died last season. I was looking for gloves that were not too thick, offered good dexterity, were waterproof and had a durable leather palm so that I could also use them to belay without shredding the palms. The Minus One gloves seemed to fit the bill. They were a good fit with nice dexterity and had plenty of leather on the fingers and palm, while offering stretch material on the back of the hands/fingers. I used them for one day of ice climbing in Colorado. This involved setting anchors, climbing and rapping off. The dexterity of the glove was okay, but I wonder if I should have sized them down for a better fit. My hands stayed dry all day, HOWEVER, the leather palms of the glove did soak up water. The moisture never penetrated through the inner membrane, but my hands got cold because of the wet leather palms. I had even taken one glove off while taking some photos and clipped it to my harness and when I put the glove back on it was frozen because of all the moisture soaked into the leather. So yes, my hands stayed dry, however, they got pretty cold because of the leather. My previous gloves also had leather palms, but never soaked up moisture until the very end of their life. These gloves did it on the very first day. Besides this one thing, they would be fine. I'm debating whether sending them back or trying to treat the leather.

you should have waterproofed that leather. most companies don't to it for you. not to be a told you so type, but you should always treat the leather on gloves and boots you get if you plan to use them long term. its not just to help keep the water out, it helps condition the leather so it can take more abuse and last a long time. I always waterproof the leather on gloves, and the best gloves come with a tube of the good stuff attached to the tag, like my burton AK leather palmed gloves of a similar style that I've had for 6 years of use now :)

Don't Buy.

I bought a pair of these thinking they would be great seeing how they are made by Mountain Hardwear but after an hour or so of climbing my hands became wet and cold. Stick with a Gore-Tex glove.

Responded on

If you hands got wet, you got a bad pair - send 'em back. Mine are waterproof.

Do not buy

Do not buy these gloves. I took them on one short ice climb and got mild frostbite on my pinky finger through the gloves.

Responded on

What were the temps? These aren't meant for very cold weather without mitts or warmer gloves while inactive. If you froze in mild temps, then I will be concerned, but not saying anything about the weather or why you were cold is not helpful.

Responded on

Weak sauce. What were the conditions during use?

Responded on

Going to have to concur with others here - these gloves are not designed for cold weather climbing. If you were unprepared for the conditions that you encountered, that's user error and no fault of your equipment. What were the temperatures and conditions like when you sustained this frostbite?

Responded on

dude you guys are all reviewing products while using them for things they aren't designed for. This is the fatal flaw of purchasing online. You should be asking somebody who knows how these products should be used for advice. If anything you should yell at backcountry for advertising these for your use, because they are lightweight and obviously not meant to keep your hands extremely warm in freezing conditions, you need much more insulation for that

Responded on

Agreed. The best comment and apparent consensus so far is treat your leather. Even the best backpacking, hiking, climbing BOOTs that undergo the same construction (a waterproof liner and leather upppers), again, should REQUIRE treatment if you consider yourself a versed outdoors(wo)man. And for the unfamiliar, untreated leather absorbs water. Treat your leather boots not only to promote longer life of the boot (and gloves are hand boots in my book), but to reduce the amount of weight your hauling with each step (or in a glove's case, swinging with each strike). That's gear 101.

Can't wait to try these gloves in all kinds of activities. The negative reviews are lengthy but novice feedback. Treat your gear well and it will return the favor, because if you don't have what you need, you need what you have. Drink up.

Big help as the gloves your get from BC are these and not the older model shown above with a dbl layer of leather in the palm.

Nice glove either way and the new version dries faster but isn't as durable.

Responded on

Forgot to add, the velcro sealed cuff is very soft and not a rigid piece of plastic like some lwt mixed gloves. And it appears to be in the older model. These will be warmer because they don't restrict your circulation at the wrist when you tighten the velcro.

Saw a picture of Ueli using a pair of these on a quick ascent of the Dru Coulior in Oct. Good enough recommendation for me to buy a pair. I'm pleased.

r these gloves warm and super durable?

Responded on

bradsk. They are super durable as they are designed with Mixed Climbing in mind as their primary use. The cow and pig leather combo on the palm makes for high durability even when handling ice ropes and the OutDry laminate keeps them completely WATERPROOF! I hope this info helps!

I have a pair of merino wool gloves, and I essentially want soft shell gloves to cover them from the winter wind and rain/snow. Would these gloves be good for layering, or can they stand alone?

Responded on

dsuarez. This would be more of a stand-alone glove. These were designed to fit tightly, almost like a golf glove or driving glove, for technical climbing/Nordic Skiing etc. rather than something to layer underneath. If you are looking for a pair of Softshell "system" gloves... meaning they have a soft shell/leather palm with removable liner I would check out the Mountain Hardwear Typhon Glove. I hope this info helps.
