The rough-and-tumble of an active winter are no match for the Stoic Paragon Glove. Goat skin leather protects your fingers from the elements, palm reinforcements give you extra grip on your pole, and a warm, wool lining takes the bite out of cold temperatures. Whether you're building a jump, digging a pit, or bushwhacking your way to a new line, this is a workhorse glove that'll take it all for years to come.

  • External DWR coating allows the goat leather and softshell materials to repel wet snow and light precipitation so you hand stays dry
  • Goat leather shell allows for superior dexterity, without sacrificing rugged durability
  • Softshell paneling is flexible, quick-drying, and provides warmth for the back of your hand and wrist
  • Reinforced palms shrug off sharp ski edges, rope tows, endless shoveling sessions, and bushwhacking sessions through tight trees
  • Wool lining insulates, wicks moisture, and retains its warmth even when wet
  • Redesigned hook-and-loop wrist closure includes a hidden, self-cinching buckle beneath the hook-and-loop tab, making it faster and easier to make one-handed adjustments without the glove slipping around on your wrist while you pull the tab closed

As water resistant as a sponge.

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Gloves appear well made and I was very excited to take them out skiing up in Tahoe. They started out fine, but either they just soaked up water like a sponge. The gloves are *still* wet after drying them out for a day.

The self-cinching strap closes well, but it means that you can't put the gloves on quickly. And loosening the strap with a glove on the other hand is difficult.

Stoic makes some great gear, but this is a disappointment.

Good quality, but not for cold temps

    The construction of this glove is great. Main complaint is that the liner is not wool as advertised on The glove does not keep my hands warm below 25 degrees farenheit when skiing at the resort. While this doesn't apply to many people, they do not have enough dexterity to operate the ski/hike mechanism on my Marker Barons. I think the fastening mechanism is really creative, but it seems like it actually takes a bit more time to fiddle with when putting the glove back on.

    Solid Everyday Glove

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These gloves are durable, warm, and breathable for normal days at the resort. If it's really wet, your hands will be wet. if it's really cold, your hands will be cold. the closure system really stands out though! i know that's something silly to be excited about, but it's the best i've ever come across.

    rock these while you save up for a top of the line goat leather/waterproof membrane something fancy. or use these for your everyday gloves so you don't waste your top of the line something fancy pair on a normal day. These are sweet for the price, just make sure you nikwax 'em!

    $40??? Seriously??? Hestra sells a glove just like it for $200!

    I've rocked Hestras for a couple years, they fell apart, switched to Kinco patrol gloves, they are so burly they could stop a chainsaw and have terrible dexterity. Got these last winter, OMG SOLVED.

    Do yourself a favor and coat these bad boys with some Sno-Seal. They will last you forever and stay waterproof the entire time. They offer great dexterity, and are my goto gloves for anything below 50 degrees. I started using them on bike commutes lower than 40F and they find my shifters just fine. I also use these for snowmobiling and they have held up awesome. The padding on the back is great for punching trees.

    At this price, I'd like to buy 3 sets so I'll be good for the next 20 years.

    sick gloves

    they were a little stiff right outta the bag, but after a few uses they were broken in nicely. They worked perfectly for the resort, backcountry, and kept my hands perfect the whole day out doing some sled-skiing

    sick gloves

    Good design, warm enough.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Initial impressions: better looking in person, fit is accurate to chart, strap design is excellent, but disappointed there is not "wool" lining as described. My lining says 93% nylon, 7% spandex. Boo!

    Use: I've used the gloves for a few weeks. Overall, I rate these gloves as excellent based on aesthetics, warmth and strap design. For me, they work great down to about 10-15 degrees F, at which point I'd probably use a liner if outside more than 30 minutes. I really appreciate the neon green stitching and strap design you can cinch down with quickly with one hand. The tab pull on the front of the glove eases use as well. Dexterity seems to be pretty good. The limits of fine motor skills seem to be getting my key carabiner off my belt loop, which I can do about half the time.

    Overall: Great design, soft but durable feeling leather that keeps you warm. Hard to beat for the price. Please omit "wool" in the description! Would buy again.

    Great for the price!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These are a great glove at their price point. They have good dexterity yet have some good warmth too. I have skied them around 20 times now and Im starting to notice the leather wear a little on the tips of the fingers, and the wool liner is wearing a little. But overall I am a big fan for the price buy two!

    Best Gloves (for the price)

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These things rock - I've heard stories and read reviews about how Stoic gloves have had fit issues in the past. These fit me very well out of the box, and are in the process of breaking in to perfection. I usually wear a large glove, and the large pair of these is spot on. I'm coming off experience with a few random pairs of Burton gloves, and Dakine sabre's. The paragon takes the cake, hands down. Love the minimal amount of insulation in the palm - the wool lining is perfect here, enough warmth/no bulk. The insulation on the back does the real work for warmth, yet the whole glove maintains such a low profile, i barely notice them on. Only complaint - the closure system around the wrist is great for fit/keeping snow out, but seems just a little difficult for on/off. Still giving 5 stars, as they deserve it @ this price point.

    Awesome glove, runs big!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    First of all, order a size down. I wear a large usually, sometimes even XL, and for these the medium fit perfect.

    They are awesome gloves though, perfect all around weight. Not too bulky, great dexterity and pretty low profile, but warm enough for all but the coldest days. The coolest part is the closure system on the cuff. It has a sweet combination of synch strap and velcro. It's super fast and easy to do and undo and feels nice and secure.

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I own over 8 pairs of gloves and these are my go-to for Touring, Skiing and Winter Belaying. Very good quality and the closure system is great and easy to use. They lasted about 2 uses before they started to absorb some water. I solved that by applying leather waterproof lotion. They are not the warmest gloves, but on cold days if you keep moving they are warm enough.

    Not too bad

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Been in some pretty cold temperatures (Single digits and teens) and did not keep the fingertips warm at all in the single digits. The water proofing seems to be adequate. Would probably do better if you're more active while being in the cold. Have yet to ski in them. I do love the fit and feel of these gloves though.

    Baller Gloves

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I'm using these for warmer spring days. They're not as warm as the high-priced PrimaLoft gloves, but the supple leather provides good grip, and were plenty warm for a 10-degree F day at Lost Trail recently. You can't beat the performance for the cost!

    Can anyone comment on how these compare...

    Can anyone comment on how these compare with the Forges? What the difference between these two gloves? Thanks!

    Best Answer

    I have both gloves and I pretty much find them interchangeable, but if I had to say, I'd say that the Paragon is 1) a bit colder 2) has better dexterity and articulation and 3) has a better grip surface. I prefer these for ski touring as the Forge still heats up a ton, but in a pinch I'd say they are very close in characteristics.

    The closure on the Paragon seems cool at first, but if you like the ability of getting your glove off quickly and easily, I would go with the standard velcro closure on the Forges. Much better in my opinion. In terms of warmth I find them to be equal.
