The North Face... Not Just for Yuppies

- Fit: True to size
These are awesome gloves so far, but I haven't had them long enough to decide if they're the best gloves I've ever owned. They dry very quickly after being wetted. They keep your hands so warm that when you take them off they drop in temperature... Not bad at all. Only been out once in snow conditions and they were fairly impressive.
Great light weight gloves

These may seem thin, but they do the job! They're thin so dexterity is still there, they don't get in the way. The inside has a nice fleece lining, nice and soft on the hands. Have worn these riding my motorcycle, and they definitely keep the wind at bay. Overall, a great pair of gloves! Use them as a liner, and you'll be set for any kind of weather.
This is another glove that I have a few pairs of. So light and nimble. Great as a liner or on it's own and surprisingly warm. I used to live in Chicago ... and it gets COLD. These gloves were my go to shoveling glove and my hands were always warm. I've used them spring skiing and for just about every winter activity imaginable. I buy a new pair every year whether I need them or not.
Great lite glove
I got these gloves mostly because I ride a bicycle year round to get places. When it starts getting colder the "liner" gloves, knit gloves, etc. dont cut it. The wind goes right through them and you might as well have nothing on your hands... those are for driving or walking or like their name suggests... as liners.
But at the same time I don't like wearing bulky full winter gloves/mittens becuase you lose all dexterity. These gloves do a great job. Theyre warm enough while I bike around. They're water proof incase it rains. And theyre thin enough that I can still do things like manipulate my house keys and phone (although touch screens don't work with these on).
For everyday use I would have preferred a shorter cuff. These cuffs are like normal winter gloves... they extend past the wrist and over your jacket sleeve. It's a good thing to most people but I just prefer mine shorter like on the liner gloves.
They're also great for the ski slopes if its not FREEZING. Any normal day these would be great to have on. The cuff that I dislike for everyday would work well to keep out the snow if you fall. And you keep more dexterity so you can strap into your board more easily.
I have tremendous trouble with my hands....
I have tremendous trouble with my hands. I already have the 'winter runners glove/mitt' but my hands are still cold enough to be useless by the end of a run. Would the 'apex glove' be a good choice to use in combination with the winter runners glove? Could I wear the apex underneath or would they be too thick to do so? Thanks.
The Apex gloves are good, but they are a little thick. They do pretty well while I am running, though on the coldest days I use a merino liner with it and that does the trick. Have you considered a merino wool liner? They are thin but warm and do a good job of wicking.
Great pair of gloves
Bought these gloves last year and they are great. Looks great with any TNF apex jacket too!! The grips on the palms of the gloves are a great added feature
Haven't used them yet, but buying them soon
I tried these on last night on a whim. I've been looking for some good ice climbing gloves and I think these will work well. Good rubber dots for grip. The material is quality. The size runs a tad big. I pretty much always wear XL gloves and the Large fit best, probably because the material is a little stretchy. I'll add to the review once I have used the gloves.
