Description

Complete protection with durability to match.

The Swany Men’s X-Cell II Glove gives you durable weather protection that will last through years of hard skiing and mountain abuse. A waterproof breathable Dryfingers II insert blocks cold moisture from reaching your hands, and synthetic Tri-plex insulation retains precious heat without that oven-mitt feeling. The all-leather shell takes a beating all season long, and the anatomically curved fingers help you grip your poles on sketchy runs. Cinch up the full gauntlet to keep blowing snow out, and slide a hand-warmer pack into the front zippered pocket for an added heat boost.

Not worth the money!

I had a pair of SX15X gloves, the older model of this glove. While dexterous, you pay for the dextarity with thin leather that will wear right through within a couple of seasons. Don't expect Swaney to stand behind their product either because they won't. After a lot of follow up, I received an offer for a discount on my next pair but never got the discount code. Very disappointed. I have since joined the crowd of happy Hestra owners.

Great fit, have lasted many seasons

I bought a pair of these a couple years back. They have changed them up a little, but they are essentially the same glove. They fit incredibly well. I have short fingers and sometimes its hard to find a glove that fits well and doesn't result in a loss of dexterity. They have lasted three seasons and are still in great shape. My only complaint is that my index fingers tend to get cold in them and I wish they had a goggle wipe. Other than that they are an awesome buy, especially if you can get them on sale.

what a fit

I have never had a glove that is so comfortable, warm, and well fitted for my hands. One thing i absolutely love about them is how much dexterity you feel, at the ends of the fingers there is not an overkill amount of material that bunches up and they still manage to keep you super warm. I have been doing mostly night skiing this season and those chairlifts can get mighty cold during night. with these my hands have never been cold or wet, and they give me enough movement to easily control my ipod.
the closure system is pretty nice as well, one easy grab synch on one side can be pulled to tighten, while the traditional squeeze can loosen (as well as a pull on the opposite side of the glove) the pulls and bracelet (so you dont drop em' ding dong!) are not cumbersome either.

In response to the comments about durability mine have been doing well so far, the only place I could guess that would break down would be on the outside of pinky or thumb, where the nose/goggle wipes are super soft leather. be careful if your a low turner who drags his hands.

I love their comfort, warmth, and fit. but i could see how people would be turned off by durability... just buy them through backcountry... a little review of their return policy should give you the piece of mind you need

warm but cheap

These gloves are warm at first, but the quality is crap. I purchased two separate pairs and neither one lasted even one full season in CO. Each time the gloves started to separate at the seams on the thumb and fingers. I now have two pair of gloves that are about 50% duct tape.

Really warm-lousy leather

Great gloves- very warm and they allow fairly good dexterity. My only complaint is that the leather wears out very rapidly. I have to duct tape the palms and thumbs after 50 or so days skiing and by the time I get to the end of the year (100+) they are shredded. No response from Swany when I tried to contact them directly. I will probably continue to buy these because they are so warm, but would definitely buy something that was as warm that lasted longer.

I have a pair of these as well.... I love them but as far as warmth AND durability goes you cant beat the Hestra's that I have. Ive had them for about 5 years now and they still look like the day I bought them! They are goofy expensive but definitely worth the extra money.

Simply the Best

Looked far and wide for a good pair of leather ski gloves. It seems many leather gloves are now made with very poor leather. A ski instructor in Stratton, VT recommended the Swany X-Cell's to me and said he had never worn a warmer pair of gloves...he is right. They are made from top-quality leather and grip like only leather can. If you ski where it's cold, these are a must.

getting much better

When the Swany production went to China the quality leather was replaced with inferior, cheap paper thin leather. When companies decide to outsource they should teach the new manufacturer how to make the product but I guess that would cost too much so the consumer has to deal with products that are not made right until sales go down and finally some quality control is introduced.Although unfortunately still made in China probably by slave labor, this year Swany has actually used a leather that has a substantial quality feel to it reminiscent of the good old days of USA quality ski gear.

Just not that great

I really wanted to like these gloves and Swany has never let me down in the past. But they just don't keep my fingers as warm as they should for the amount of insulation they have. The leather is very nice and I have to admit that they are constructed to withstand tons of abuse but I really feel there are better gloves out there for the price.
