If you look like a typhoon plowing through feet of fresh snow, that's a good thing.
- OutDry system uses a waterproof breathable membrane bonded directly to the shell fabric instead of in the liner to block water, wind, and snow at the surface
- Four-way stretch nylon softshell is ideal for the countless tweaks, pulls, and zips you do in the backcountry
- Extra-long gauntlet lets you tuck the sleeve of your jacket under to seal out snow when you submarine through feet of fresh pow
- Removable wool and fleece blend liner works alone on aerobic skin tracks or chilly hikes

This is my second review of a Mountain Hardware product. The first review was for the Jovian shell...I hated to pen that review, because I am a fan of MH gear, what they are about (pre and post Columbia) and their overall line of gear. But the review was truthful. I figure many of you will, like me, read these reviews thoughtfully and determine what gear is going to earn its way into your ruck. So here we go. And by the way, this review will be a pleasure to write!
I bought these at the beginning of last season and used them several times. Bottom line: I love this glove. I do not care for mittens but was going climbing in South America (albeit Ecuador, so not too cold) so I wanted something better than my OR Arete' gloves. The fit was spot on (size large for me), the OutDry worked as advertised in rain, snow and LOTs of wind...the inside of the glove has a sort of soft lining that adds warmth; add the liner and you have a glove that was plenty warm for me during our rest breaks in snow and high wind. I would take these to Denali as my main climbing glove but with a more robust after market liner. The Typhon packs down pretty small and easily fit in my pack lid. The gauntlet comes up nice and high over your shell or layer and the drawcord was comfortable. I am trying to find some dings on this glove but I can't. These gloves will find their way into my ruck for a long, long time.

The fit is perfect, outdry performs flawlessly, very durable. I dont have a problem with cold hands, even in sub zero temps, and I've found these gloves to be perfect for me.
Mediocre So Far
My original review-
I haven't been out in super cold weather as of yet with these guys, but I can tell that they will be warmer than anything I've had thus far. I like the style of them, and they are good for grasping smaller things. The quick-pull drawcord works nicely too. I'll post another comment when I have more time in the deep stuff with them.
I've been out a few times in temps in the single digits and these things haven't been very warm at all. With the liner, I would think they'd be good until at least below zero. I found myself pulling my fingers in to the palm to stay warm after only three runs on the slopes. For spending this much, I am pretty disappointed.
light, and great dexterity!! great glove
