All You Can Do (except construction work)

Running, Biking, you call it....these gloves will do the work. I own several pairs of Polartec power strech gloves, ussualy buy a bunch when on sale. Good value for the money.

Great dexterity, Poor wind resistance

I bought these to wear as liners under a pair of GoreTex outer mitts on a trip to Antarctica. I wanted the dexterity to be able to adjust my camera settings, so I thought I would just slip my mitts on/off as needed. After one landing, these gloves ended up relegated to ship duty. I found that I was taking pictures most of the time, and these gloves weren't holding up against the wind chill (the temperatures themselves were very mild). I ended up using a bulkier but more wind-resistant glove liner during landings.

However, these gloves are very comfortable and definitely provide the dexterity I wanted, so I'm looking forward to using them in more mild weather. And they were a great option on the ship when I needed to hold on to the cold metal deck railings. Overall, a great little light-duty glove.

Nice fit, forms to the hand without extra side stitching that inhibits dexterity.

Keep away from Velcro!

Keep gloves away from Velcro; it will severely damage the outside material!

Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch Glove

The men’s version looks just the same, if not then I guess I have the women’s. The fit is just the same, these glove’s are extremely flexible and excellently form fitting and low profile. They keep your hands warm in temperatures ranging from the mid 30’s to 40’s but not below 32. Nice fit, forms to the hand without extra side stitching that inhibits dexterity. The only con’s are that they do not have grip on the palms and the outer material is quite sensitive. Keep gloves away from Velcro; it will severely damage the outside material! I did not really notice these downsides since I was looking for a glove that has a low profile, and keeps your hands warm without reducing dexterity. In these regards the gloves are perfect, there just are a few trade off’s. If anything they make great glove liners. I do not regret buying them, I just think I might get a little bit more heavy duty version of the Black Diamond ones next time.

Mountain Hardwear Power stretch glove - womens

gloves fit very nicely BUT the second time I wore them, the sewing on the seams started unraveling - i've had them about 3 weeks now and the fabric has pulls. not worth the money i paid and would NOT order again. very disappointed - only reason I'm not giving one star is because i do like the way they fit.

Not that warm

Got these for my wife to keep her hands warm on dog walks and getting to work on cold mornings in the car. She likes the look and fit and lack of bulk, but says there's very little warmth provided by them.

Good Gloves

The gloves are a very good fit, very satisfied with them, except that when they arrived, they appeared to be pre-worn in that the material on the fingertips of the gloves was a little worn-looking. Disappointed with that. When you order online sight unseen, you are trusting the company to send you merchandise in perfect condition. Did not want to go to the trouble of returning them.

I have these in the mens version and I absolutely love them!! I wore them almost everyday in the winter doing everything from biking to school, trail running, xc skiing, snowshoeing and general yard work. I have had mine to 2 years now and they are still like new. This is a high quality glove that can perform many task exceptionally well. Get a pair!

solid build for its intended use

for hands that need a bit of object grasp and dexterity in movement, these gloves will serve well. they are more solid than other brands (e.g. outdoor Research) for the same type and price range. If you do not expect these to protect you from the coldest outdoors (if they do, they would get 5 stars), then these will fit your bills. No other "power stretch" gloves out there would beat these unless you spend way more (say $46.00 as opposed to just $19)

Great buy

Bought these for my wife because her hands are always cold on the hill. She's been wearing them with her mittens and loves them! They're pretty thick for a liner but dexterity is great. She's actually been wearing them off the hill quite a bit for cold days walking, hiking, etc... They seem to be holding up well, great quality.

great fit

These gloves have a wonderful fit. I wear them as a light weight glove in cooler weather and I also use them as a glove liner in colder weather. They are not as warm as some of my other glove liners so they got benched when the weather got really cold; but otherwise, they are my go to glove. They are like a second skin, really comfortable.

warm and comfy

Got these as a second pair for my wife. She had the black pair from years ago and always commented how she wish she could find another pair of the same glove. Thank you Backcountry for coming thru again. She uses for everyday wear in the car or in cool hiking and walking conditions. From the use on her original pair, I give them two thumbs up on durability too

Cleanable and durable

I ride horses and like to ride them year round; snowy, sunny, cloudy, rainy, whatever the weather. I have owned several pairs of these gloves and absolutely love them. The main reason why I have to get new ones is because I loose one glove, but that's my fault not the glove's, obviously. Anyhow, they have withstood many horseback riding trips, yet are easily washed and cleaned so I can use them in everyday activities without them smelling or looking like they've been around horses. Another plus about these gloves is that they are thin enough that I can manage finer control without having to take them off.

Power Stretch is Right!

just finished testing these during a 16 miler in the Wasatch mtns. Nov 1st run up Neff's Canyon to Mill Creek and then up and out Mount Granduer. they took a beating on some snowy bushwhacking sections and did great. kept my hands really warm. not being the most burly gloves on the market i thought they would disintegrate during an extended bushwhack section of grabbing trees and shrubs, etc. i was wrong. they are no worse for wear. i found them super comfy and would be a great ski glove liner too.

Great lightweight gloves

I have several types of light/liner gloves and I always come back to these. They are comfortable, dry fairly quickly, wash well, and are warm (for a lightweight glove). The fit is great, which also makes them perfect for liner gloves. The only thing I think that could improve these gloves would be the addition of some type of "grip" material to the fingers and palms for driving.
