Meron Thermo 2-In-1 Glove
Dry enough for ice climbing, warm enough for skiing, and dexterous enough for mountaineering, Mammut's Meron Thermo 2-In-1 Glove is a killer winter option. The tough shell is outfitted with a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex NG membrane that'll keep wet snow and soggy ice from freezing your fingers solid, and the synthetic liner glove will be a boon for sweaty uphill tours where a minimal coverage is all you need to meet the conditions. Fully wearable on its own, the liner is also touch-screen compatible, so you can send a text or share a photo without needing to expose your skin to the cold. Whether worn together or separate, the Meron's dual components excel on their own, but when coupled together, few gloves come close.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I took these gloves with me to Nepal and loved them. They kept my hands tostie even with a wind chill of -20 at Everest Basecamp. The nice thing is the liner is warm and can be worn by itself. They are windproof a waterproof as they advertised.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
So, after experiencing a weird and unacceptable fit with the Arcteryx Fissions, I tried several other gloves of similar weight. While not nearly as bad as the Arcteryx, these gloves had fingers a little too long for me, which doubled-over on themselves when I gripped something. If you have slightly long fingers or like space above your fingertips, these would be good for you.
Another thing is that the glove liner has a tight wrist closure, and it pulls out partially when you remove the glove...even when your hand isn't warm. Putting them back on at that point was frustrating. I just pulled the liner out, put it on, and then put the shell on over it. Kind of a hassle in the comfort of my home much less out on the slopes.
Lastly, it has some sort of stiffener that runs diagonally across the back of the glove. When I gripped anything, it would "pyramid" up, which was mildly annoying.
On the plus side, they do seem very well constructed, and the leather is super-soft and pliable, not the least bit stiff at all. They would probably be good for moderately cold days, so most days out. I ended up getting the Helly Hansen Ullr Sogn HT gloves. They're a little warmer, and much less expensive with the same features and better fit.
I wore these gloves only a few times so far from snow boarding skiing and climbing they are the best gloves ive worn hands down they stay dry and warm on freezing wet snow days fit great dry durable witch is a great plus mammut never fails on any of there products
