Darrenwrote a review of Arc'teryx MX Glove on July 26, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Initial impressions of quality and design? Stellar. However across glove makers I usually wear a large, very rarely an xL. Got these in a large and they are obscenely tight, which is a good thing I suppose for warmer temps mixed climbing, spring/summer alpine pursuits etc. but avoid the cold, these lend themselves to a strangling, compressive effect, probably via venous congestion or something. My hands have always been cold wearing these unless I am highly active. First route out with these, did some easy AI 3 in the summer, in the Sierra. Did minimal rope, tool work and already have a hole on the softshell backing. Hands were ok with the ascent but once I cooled down it was a problem. I would've bought an XL. The just dont do it for me at this price. These might be great for the elitist winter golfer?
