Perfect Winter Glove for Dexterity
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This glove is almost perfect for my needs. I wanted a slimmer glove that provided some dexterity, but was still waterproof and had some insulation. This checks all of the boxes. The build quality is superb, in the interior liner is very comfortable, and they look awesome. They are not the warmest option, needless to say, as they are slimmer than most other waterproof, winter gloves, but they strike the right balance between everything. The pull tabs work incredibly well and the gauntlets are slim, so they probably won't fit OVER some thick jackets.
Great dexterity but not warm enough for glacier. Sturdy construction. Unfortunately one size too small for me, had them returned.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Great glove that is a nice compromise between warmth and dexterity. I bought these for my husband and he loves them. Took them ice climbing in Ouray and they worked great for him.
what is the lowest temp this glove can go down to ?
