- Q & A
Light and breathable
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Light weight, Fit true to size, Good balance between warmth and breathability on high aerobic outings. The touch screen feature is a nice addition.
the best of gloves, the worst of gloves
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It was the best of gloves, it was the worst of gloves... : )
Without a doubt these are the best gloves I've ever used in terms of performance, and the worst in terms of durability. If they costed 20 bucks I'd just buy stacks of them. At 70 bucks, instead I wrote Mountain Hardwear and told them they are awesome but need to make these things more durable.
Good: Best combo of dexterity and warmth of any glove I've ever owned. The waterproofing and thinnest make this a perfect glove to wear under mittens. For example, pop the mittens off and leave these on to quick take climbing skins on/off skis/splitboard without getting frozen fingers.
Bad: Palm coating came off after only a few days use, but gloves still work well. After 2 months of weekend warrior splitboarding in Switzerland, they are falling apart even more. The stitching that keeps the inner liner from going inside out broke so now I have to flap my hands to get the glove off to prevent inversion. Also, the inner liner is starting to rip near the wrist, exposing what seems to be the secret sauce, an alumimum foil looking layer inside...interesting.
Lets hope Mountain Hardwear listens to my feedback and improves this glove for next season.
Just got a pair of these, testing begins

The gloves are warm and allow room for a liner so they are versatile. I only wore them for a few hiking trips and the coating on the palm of the gloves began to crack and peel away. Returning them for a refund.
