You can't go wrong with a pair of versatile fleece gloves.
Share your thoughts
I got these gloves at REI on sale for pretty cheap, and for the price I paid, I am pleased. For most weather I see in GA, whether in winter or fall, these gloves will carry me through most anything. Granted, as others said, these gloves are not ideal for heavy moisture, they definitely get the job done when it comes to cold days.
Work as expected
I use these as commuter gloves in DC and to walk the dog. Not too warm or waterproof as others said, but far more comfortable (and less expensive) than those warmer waterproof gloves. And these allow you to maintain dexterity with your fingers for zippers, dog leash, keys, newspaper etc. I tried on several different pairs, and thought these were the most comfortable. I used them in the snow and yes my hands got wet and eventually cold, but I don't criticize for this...not what these gloves are designed to do. Just my 2 cents.
Good for mild winters
I live in Florida and let's face it, winter here is like summer compared to the rest of the 49. However that doesn't change the fact that wind still can cut right through you. While a simple hooded sweater might keep me warm, my hands will always be freezing and useless until I warm them up.
These gloves, while a bit on the thick side are comfortable and serve their purpose wonderfully. My hands are now toasty warm and I suspect they can actually be used in much colder weather than the 30s I've been using them for.
I can't vouch for it's effectiveness in snow but for cold, windy days, I think this is a good buy.
Given, these are not the most expensive pair of gloves I've owned, but being North Face, I expected them to be pretty high quality...
I have average sized hands, but went with a Large size and figured they would be just a little baggy. NOT THE CASE. The finger slots are so tight that it feels like by circulation is being cut off. Horrible fit.
The insulation is a joke! I bought these to replace a beat-up pair of Young Armys (I don't want to drop other brand names...you figure it out)) gloves I use to shovel show in and my hands were cold almost instantly. The North Face Denali's can't even keep my hands warm walking to the mailbox and back.
Great gloves fits well and stylish.
I would recommended.
A little disappointed
My new North Face Denali gloves are in the trash. After less than a month, I have a dime sized hole in one of the seams. I'm not sure how it happened, as I only have worn the gloves to and from work while driving for twenty-something days. I own other North Face garb (fleece, sport sandals, winter coat), and I have had no issues with the fleece or the coat. In fact, I live in them. The sandals are my second pair (because the first pair was shipped to me with one of the elastics broken), but the new pair has served me well, through the rain forest, kayaking, and hiking. As for my gloves, I'm not sure that the quality matches the price tag. Honestly, the hole could have been my fault, but I don't know how. I never used them for anything intense.
I got this gloves just for it looks, but once I started using them wow! I fell in love with them, they're not only stylish, comfortable, warm, and they give me decent waterproof protection.
I just got this pair today. I like them the moment I have them on. With Michigan weather, nothing can keep me really warm. But I'm sure they will keep me from being too cold while shoving snow or skiing. I also bought a pair of Windwall gloves. They are more for dressing up (like leather gloves). :)
nice midweight gloves
Just what I was looking for, not too heavy/bulky, not too light. Gift for my boyfriend. He wears them just as casual winter gloves, not for any winter sports use.
Good Glove for Mardi Gras
It was very cold down here in L.A. (Lower Alabama) during Mardi Gras, so I pulled these bad boys out and they performed well for windy and 35 degrees. I did notice the seams are a little large inside and that took some getting used to, but once I had worn them a time or four they eased up and wore down a little. Good glove for the money, glad I got them.
Definitely a BUY
These gloves have held up here in New York to 19degrees and less temps doing outdoor activities like walking a construction site and taking photos and shoveling snow in my driveway. I don't suppose they would be ideal for more prolonged outdoor sports like hiking or skiing.
That being said they are very comfortable, the design allows for your hands to do things with out feeling clumsy or akward. Waterproof no, wind proof again depends on your activity.
Excellent city wear! I give a thumbs up. Could they be a little less expensive, ofcourse they could.
Hope this helps.
Not wind proof
They are what they are - which is a light weight glove good for above freezing temps. They are not WIND-PROOF; of course they are wind-resistant - putting a sock on your hand will resist wind. If it's relatively warm out and the wind blows it's not so bad, but if it's chilly and the wind gets going - your fingers will feel it and become numb.
Compared to the hat and scarf that I bought as a gift, these are just not as well equipped for the really cold weather. They definitely aren't for 'frigid' temps as described. Anything below 20 degrees and you're SOL
Hard to believe more folks are not gripping about this. After long lusting for these, I purchased & took during a cold weather trip; Pointy Fingers & large, large seams ripped my fingers almost raw - decently warm but these HAVE to be returned; Dissapointing at best.
I don't understand the reviews stating that these gloves aren't waterproof - they're fleece gloves. The description doesn't say they're waterproof.
Solid glove - does it's job well.
I'm no outdoor enthusiast, but do live in bitterly cold (at times) Wisconsin and these gloves are wonderful. Keep my hands nice and warm for the main things I do (walking to class, scraping ice off car, shoveling, etc.). Not waterproof, but they do seem to stay pretty dry. Definitely would recommend them for people who aren't hardcore skiers, hikers, etc.
Around the Town
Good fleece glove to wear around the town and from the parking lot to the lodge. True fit, comfortable, warm enough for short trips outside. The glove has a nice tack on the palm and finger tips that make it somewhat non slip so that you can wear it while driving or when attempting some fine motor skills outside in the cold for a short period of time. It is North Face, so it is quality, but usually have to pay full price...not many sale prices....I try to look in the Outlet for North Face accessory items.
Sufficient for the average person
These gloves match the Denali jacket personality: they're fairly warm, but offer no "technical" performance. That is, they don't stop the wind, and they don't offer any moisture wicking or water resistance. Wear these on a calm fall day, but don't use them for extremely windy or rainy days. The average person will be satisfied with these, but if you're "active" outdoors they're not going to cut it.
These gloves are great. They're not bulky, have grips on the fingertips, and nylon taslan on the fingers to cut down on wind. Great for what they are, fleece gloves. they're not ski gloves, and are definitely not waterproof or windproof. Very warm when kept dry, and very agile, not clumsy. Would buy again. Make sure you know what you're buying, these aren't ski gloves at all.
A must have during the winter!!
