Pull on the Arc'teryx Rivet Glove when you're skinning in the backcountry, or layer it under a shell when you're riding lifts in frigid temperatures at a resort. The Polartec Power Stretch fleece offers air-permeable breathability, wind-resistance, and snow-shedding protection. Inside the glove, the fleece adds warmth and comfort against your skin, while hardface technology in the material enhances water-and abrasion-resistance when the glove is worn alone. PU pads on the thumb and index finger let you snap shots of your backcountry buddies on your phone without having to take your gloves off, and the reinforced leather palm gives good grip on ski poles.

- Q & A
Great running glove
I have been using these as my cold weather running glove and have been super happy with them. They are quite warm, I have worn them in the single digits while running and was rather impressed with such a thin glove still keeping me warm (granted I was running and not just standing still, which these would not be nearly warm enough for). My only complaint is the lack of stretch in the cuff, which makes it pretty difficult to take on and off while on the move. These have held up well for me for winter mountain running so far after 20/30 uses without any noticeable wear. I would recommend going with something a bit more durable for anything other than Nordic or running though.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I really loved these gloves. Took them up Denali as my glacier travel gloves. They are perfect for that kind of work as it gets hot but cold wind comes down the glacier, as well as protection from the snow in the case of a fall or rescue. I am a photographer and the amount of dexterity I had was really unprecedented.
The only issue is they only lasted 2 weeks, and only just barely that long. The seams are ridiculously small, and the fibers couldn't take the beating of removing them repeatedly over the course of the climb. The elastic is so tight you really have to crank on the fabric to get them off, and all the fingers ripped by about 2 weeks into the climb.
So close to being my go-to gloves but I really shredded these things up while using them really for what they are designed for.
