So I decided to try these guys again, but noticed a couple more flaws.
Firstly, no dummy strap. That is just absurd on a $300 glove. Not cool.
Secondly, the wrist clench mechanism. Difficult to work with one hand. Why not make it simpler with a passive elastic or something more streamlined?
Thirdly and most importantly. Most of Arcteryx stuff seems to be made for thinner athletic types, but these glove would fit best on someone with shorter and fatter fingers. I hope next year they will make them more for long, skinny finger guys. IMO.
Also, it did make a lot of sense to me to have such a dexterous design for a big glove. I think it would awesome if they used this technology to make a light glove. Something for temps 15 F to 35F. On par with BD Punisher. Maybe a similar shell, but a thin, fixed liner. Damn, that would be a nice glove.
