First of all, the backcountry.com description of these gloves is inaccurate. It states that they have a removable liner, however this in incorrect, they do not. What they have is something called Gore-Tex 2-in-1 technology, which allows you to slide your fingers into one of 2 chambers in the glove. One chamber is warmer and insulated, and the other chamber basically puts your hand so that the warm chamber is on the back of your hand, giving your fingers more dexterity but less warmth. One would assume that the back of the hand would be twice as warm in this use case.

The outer shell of the glove seems really well constructed, as is typically the case with most Mammut products. The stitching is top notch, and the leather is very soft and supple, and has reinforcements just where you'd want them.

I can't speak to the warmth of the gloves. I am probably going to return them since what I really wanted was a glove that is a shell with a removable liner, which is what I thought that these were.

I posted 2 years ago that these were fantastic pants after 3 years of riding in them. Well, another 2 seasons have gone by, and I'm still using the same pair. Sure, they're a bit stained, and I had to replace the velcro in the legs, but I still love 'em and the still keep me dry! I'll probably ride these again this season and then turn them over to my little bro and get myself a new pair.

Some people complain that the pockets are too small, but I think they're perfectly sized. I can fit my driver's license, credit card, cash, and my car key in there, and everything else goes in the backpack.
