    The snow blower is busted, so you ditch the random mittens and grab your high-performance Marmot Spring Gloves out of the ski closet for some quality time with the shovel. This heavy duty all-around glove works just as well for shoveling as it does for spring skiing, snowboarding, and mountaineering.

    Good gloves

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large fits snug

    This was my 2nd pair. Great ice climbing glove. Very good combo of warm but sensitive. On big routes I always bring multiple gloves but these come out for the crux usually unless it's brutally cold then you obviously need something more insulated. Not quit as sensitive as your mixes gloves but a good compromise for 90% of stuff. As far as sizing goes I am helplessly right between L and XL on basically everything, so can't help much on that. But BC rules with service and returns so I don't hesitate to try one and have to exchange it.

    Tough-As-Nails Glove, Limited Sizing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've skied with this glove for a couple seasons now in widely variable conditions. It's a bomber glove with excellent dexterity and decent moisture protection — No glove is 100% waterproof and you don't want 100% waterproof gloves anyway. If your hands don't breath, you create your own micro climate inside the gloves and that's just as bad as external moisture seeping in.

    I have thin hands with long narrow fingers. Kinda skeletal. I also run very hot. And cold fingers are something I rarely deal with to a degree that the chill comprises my comfort. These gloves are terrific for spring days, ascents, and general wear and tear. They also fit very snugly.

    That being said, I prefer Hestra. Why? Because Hestra's glove sizing system makes it easy to find an exact fit. I wear a size 9 with Hestra. Perfect. With most other glove makers, you get a choice of S / M / L. That's 3 sizes to choose from versus 6.

    The Marmot Spring glove fits snug to begin with and I fall right in between a medium and a large. The medium is perfect except that the finger length is just barely too short which causes the wrist to ride partially over the base of my palm. The large was exactly the opposite. I went with the Medium for a tight fit and am constantly yanking down the wrist trying to stretch the fabric/leather. Two years later, the gloves haven't stretched at all. Superb construction.

    As others have noted, the wrist closure is both an annoyance and a struggle. But it works really really well.

    Great glove. Sizing runs small. May be best for people with stubby fingers.

    Excellent for ice climbing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: X-large

    I use this glove primarily for lead ice climbing. Excellent dexterity and pretty good warmth. Have not used it in super wet conditions but under our "normal" New England conditions it works really well for this application. Not sure on durability yet but so far so good.

    Great for what they are.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Really comfortable and relatively warm for how slim and low profile they are. I haven't used them up on the mountain yet, but I used them multiple times this year while shoveling the snow that dumped on us at the beginning of winter. I haven't had problems with getting them on or off like some other reviewers. And as for sizing, they fit like a liner fits so they are pretty snug on your hand, but they give you much more dexterity than a bulkier glove.

    Not Waterproof as Claimed

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I really like these gloves for their warmth and dexterity, BUT, while delivering mail in the rain today, my hands were quickly soaked. I'm pretty disappointed, especially because I had no other gloves to swap out to, and February is still cold enough to make that an issue.

    Quality, but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    Size...It appears by reading the reviews that the sizing seems to run the gamut. Some say True to Size, while others thinks it runs Small. My personal observation is that the XL pair I purchased runs Small. I normally wear a size Large glove. However, my objective was to obtain an XL so that I could leave some room for a liner.

    The problem was that on me, these were small WITHOUT a glove liner. They ran tight across the palm and the fingers were tight in circumference. Additionally, the fingers were too short.

    My initial thoughts were that I had been shipped the incorrect size, but this assumption was incorrect. I was shipped to correct size. However, I believe the size label must be incorrect, because they were so small, especially for a size larger than I normally wear.

    Returns are so easy with Backcountry and everything was done hassle-free as I would have expected.

    While I did not have the opportunity to wear these, I was able to scrutinize the construction and quality. They appeared to be well designed and constructed and that's what I would have expected from Marmot. So, my four star rating is based only on my observation of the quality and construction, not the wear ability.

    Pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    A little hard to get on, the wrist band area. in a feels like 20º day with wind, they work well. Didn't get to use them in heavy rain, just a light rain. They kept my hands dry.

    Great for everyday cold weather use.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Use these for daily wear and they do a great job of keeping my hands warm. Haven't had too much experience with them in wet weather yet but for light drizzle they've held up well and have also done a good job keeping the wind out. As some reviewers have mentioned the gloves are somewhat tight (loosens up with use) but it's mostly in the putting them on and it isn't that bad. Once they're on though they fit just right.

    My New "Go To" Glove!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Purchased the Black in XL. I typically wear a 10 to 10.5 in fitted gloves and the XL fits perfectly. I have used these gloves exclusively since I got them and find that I reach for them leaving my various Hestras on the shelf. The DriClime liner is proving to be very breathable and warm. I have worn these skiing n 18 to 30 degree weather and remained comfortable and warm at all times.
    I don't find them difficult to don or doff as some other reviewers stated. The wrist bands and Velcro closures have proven to be comfortable and functional. Definitely a quality glove at a very reasonable price. Time will tell about durability but when this pair wear out I will be ordering another pair.

    Pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large and xL

    I find the xl to be too big and the L to be too small. A bit stiff initially but I expect this will improve with time. In 35 degree temps I found my hands to get cold while at rest. Overall well made and attractive.

    Backcountry's bait & switch items

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: large

    The glove purchased (in large size) is very good (yet is tough to get on quickly), but Backcountry's offering of the branded glove as a sale item for under $30 quickly varied upon ordering the particular size needed to over $50. Other sites (e.g., REI) where that same glove can be purchased at such an end-of-season sale price do not vary the pricing by size -- that is, do not post [bait with] an overall item sale price (for an extra-small in this case) and then vary it [switch], all the way back to an original non-sale price for the more popular / standard size(s).

    Glove love? Glove love!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Sizing is accurate to other similar gloves I've had. Last pair was Scott Spring Gloves. These are notably more robust and seemingly warmer. Once broken in I suspect they'll provide a great deal more dexterity than they do now.



    Cuff is great. They are no joke to put on. I'm still surprised by how much of a challenge it is. It may just be my hands and/or gloves but pulling them on requires real effort. Again, this may get better as they break in.



    They seem to be a significant step up in all qualitative measures from the Scott Spring Gloves, which I loved.



    Largely subjective and totally irrelevant, but they're pretty sharp looking.

    Best glove ever!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This is my third Marmot Spring Glove in the past 7 years. I have used this glove for ice climbing, mountaineering, skiing, and commuting to work by bike. I will ALWAYS own a pair of these gloves.

    Use for photography

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    I use these gloves for photography in cooler temps down to about 20 to 25 degrees and they do a good job of keeping my hands warm . They have a nice feel to them with the leather palm and allow for operation of the basic control dials and shutter. The only negative I found was not in the performance of the glove, but the sizing. IMHO, they tend to run big. Other than that, these glove work as advertised keeping the cold winds, rain and snow out.

    Worked great for winter backpacking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    Have had these for about a month and used them on a day trip snowshoeing and a long weekend backpacking trip in the Sierras. The snowshoeing trip had temps in the low 40s and these were almost too warm. However, their waterproofness and comfort were appreciated during an impromptu snowball fight.



    For the weekend backpacking trip these were awesome. Temps ranged from the high teens to low 30s during the day. Got snowed on a couple times, went glissading, dug snow shelters and tables, and never once did these gloves let me down. They were great while active, and kept my hands warm on chilly mornings.



    The fit can be a little tight when your hands are cold or wet. But once you get your hand in they truly fit like a glove and give reasonably good dexterity.

    Update to Fits like a glove...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Now that we are partway through the winter season, I need to update my review of these gloves. I have ice climbed in with these 5 times and done 4 backcountry tours and the stiching along the fingers(more than one) is starting pull.



    I love the fit, breath-ability, warmth and dexterity. But the durability is definitely not bomber.

    Perfect Spring Skiing Gloves

      Great gloves, especially for the price. Much better solution for me than a 3 in 1 glove. And as other have noted, these gloves were perfect on a partly cloudy day that started out at about 20F. My only negative is that they are a little tight to get on,but I have wide hands.

      Love these gloves!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love -- LOVE -- these gloves! Bought them to wear as a base pair when skiing (I wear a shell mitt over them) and have been quite pleased. Even though they are advertised as a "Spring Glove" they were more than warm enough on a cold day and when it warmed up and started sleeting, I shed the mitt and wore just the gloves. They kept my hands warm and dry!

      Great lightweight glove

        Really nice gloves. The leather's really supple and grips well and the softshell fabric on the back of the hand breathes well. These keep my hands warm while hiking/skinning down to about 20F (maybe lower but I haven't tested them that cold), but because they are thin I'll get cold hands when carrying an axe at those temps. I think it's a good balance of insulation and dexterity though; I can put on and adjust my crampons without taking these gloves off. My only complaint is that water seems to get through the seams when the day warms up and the snow gets wet, I assume because the seams aren't taped. Generally a minor issue as I'm usually on my way out by the time this happens. Bottom line, I lost my first pair of these and I'm buying another pair, no hesitation.
