Endure the worst of the backcountry.
In double-digit mile per hour winds and snow dropping out of the sky so fast you can hardly see your tracks two feet behind you, Arc’teryx makes Rush SV Gloves you can trust. Breathable N70p 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric acts as the main buffer between the back of your hands and the worst of the elements in the alpine. A rugged leather adds another durable layer of protection over the fingers and palms that also provide an adhesive-like grip to your poles. The finger’s unique design technology, consisting of three panels of fabric sewn together in an anatomical fit for each digit, endow the glove with the utmost dexterous range of motion. The Rush SV’s removable Polartec liner is a high performance fleece with durable quality so you can keep going back for more turns every time you put them on.

- Q & A
Well constructed, but not the warmest glove. Seems to run a bit large in sizing.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Gloves are ill-shaped, poorly constructed, and overpriced.
I purchased these and returned them almost immediately. The elastic drawstring plastic retainer needed to be repaired on mountain. While repairable extremely inconvenient. The liners fit well however the shell is not in well proportion and had extra room in the finger where the liner didn't. As stated by the other reviewer, these gloves are not very warm, especially not with the supposed SV: Severe weather claim.
I don't feel they had a great grip either.
