Norrona's lightweight Falketind Dri Short Glove offers a surprising amount of warmth and protection despite its super-light weight. A Dri 1 insert gives this glove waterproof breathable protection that's rated higher than most ski jackets, and Flex 1 softshell fabric ensures mobility and breathability when you're mountaineering. Despite its midweight insulation, the Falketind compresses compactly into backpacks.

- Q & A
Nice pair of gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These are very lightweight, waterproof, and warm. They seem to be made very well and I expect them to last a long time. Should be part of every backpacker's gear list.
Watch the wind
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Not a bad glove, plenty warm for Tahoe skiing. I used these on a recent trip and they kept me dry and warm until the winds came. Things were fine when I was active but sitting on the lifts in 30 degree weather with 40 mph winds was a painful experience. The wind rips right through these gloves and after two rides on the lift I had to change to my back up gloves and all was well again. Maybe they would do better with a liner?
Fit like a glove
Ok cheesy title, but that doesn't take away from these fantastic gloves. I wore them on a 13 mile hike in the rain - think PNW rain! We headed through snow too and the gloves kept my hands warm and dry. They are super light and comfortable even holding onto trekking poles. I ordered large since I usually have issues with thumbs sizing issues on medium gloves - I have noticed Norrøna products run a bit small.
