Ultimate Ski Glove

Marmot designed the Ultimate Ski Glove for the most epic of ski days, from days where the falling snow blocks all visibility to freezing cold bluebird days. Your hands will stay comfortable all day with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex insert keeping them dry, and Primaloft Gold insulation keeping them warm, even if you manage to get snow past the drawcord cuff. Constructed to stand up to professional-level use, the face fabric is reinforced with cowhide leather in the most vulnerable areas. Marmot included a DriClime lining to wick sweat away from your palms while you give yourself a pep talk at the top of that 50-degree couloir.

Runs so small!

Got these “ultimate” ski gloves for my husband, who’s other Marmot gloves finally gave up the ghost after several years. He’s average size but usually prefers a Large in gloves. Unfortunately, the Large was so small the webbing stopped just after his 2nd knuckle. They feel like they *could* be warm, but we’ll never know.

Very frustrated and cold

I've put it through the wringer

These gloves were not cheap and I regret the purchase greatly. I think Donny's just got super good circulation or something. The wind on the chair lift cuts through these gloves like a freaking katana. I'm not kidding these gloves are BAD in the wind... even just going down the slopes at an average speed on a 15 minute run in 15 degree (F) weather will chill you to the bone. I really want new gloves but I blew my glove budget on these failures so now I have to wait for another good deal to come around... well, better luck next time I guess. Note that these gloves will conversely burn your hands off in 40 degree (F) spring ski weather.

Warm and dry

I've used it several times

I bought these gloves this winter for skiing and they have been great. They have kept my hands warm the entire season and I could not be more thrilled. I have taken them out about 10 times and my hands have stayed dry every time I have had them out! I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone.

Agreed... Not warm enough & limited use

I've used it several times

Starting to wish I could get my $130 back, as these gloves have been unable to keep my hands warm despite some very good sounding reviews (My basis for purchasing after significant research. I snowboarded in -4 degrees F this past weekend and I was very frustrated with these gloves. For the amount of money paid I should be able to take these out in -15 to -20. I am an excellent snowboarder and I cannot continue to be handicapped by these gloves. I am disappointed with how easily wind can cut into them along with the ambient cold. My next issue... they also do not have any functionality. In addition to actually being warm... I'd like to see a small pouch-pocket on top to store RFID ski passes etc. Or I would like to see a squeegee on the thumb or index finger so that it can more easily assist me in the event that my googles Ice on the outside. Not happy that my search for high-quality lifetime gloves has resumed!

not warm

Fit small, not sure if that is the issue but XL is usually a little big for me. Not at all warm, tested at all degrees. I read all the reviews before buying and appear to be an outlier. Extra odd as Marmot is my go to brand.

Still good but some regressions

I've put it through the wringer

I had the last 3 versions of this glove starting with the 1998 one that used kangaroo leather. That lasted 10 years before the fingers textile part gave up. The next one lasted 8 years and this time was the leather that gave up at all finger tips and the sawing on the leather doubling patches. This version is pretty much like the last one I had. The improvement is the leather placement on the back of hand/fingers and the leather doubling path on the palm. BUT there are a few very annoying regressions: The clip on for connecting the two gloves is gone replaced with a carabiner that is hard to operate even with two hands at room temps. The old one was one hand operation and it was much smaller. The pointer finger is much tighter now resulting in cold finger. The draw cord for closing the gauntlet is hard to pull without also pulling on its release red strap. It also hanging out a lot more and because it is now external to the gauntlet it does not open the gauntlet so I end up fiddling with the cords to pull the right one, then after releasing the cord I have to pull on the gauntlet to fully open it. The position around gauntlet change as before it was easy to bite the red strap and open the gauntlet - no hands operation.

Thanks for the review! Seems one handed operation isn't as easy but glad that you're still a fan.

I've put it through the wringer

I used these all season and I couldn't be happier. Kept my hands warm and dry. What more could you ask for? I used them mainly during night skiing and never had a problem with my hands getting cold. I've used them over 15 times this season and they still look brand new. I expect them to last for years to come. Worth every penny!

Warm and Dextrous

My hands are always a little cold, no matter what gloves I have on. That being said, though, these gloves keep my hands the warmest they have ever been. These have been warm enough to get me through long days on the slopes while still giving me enough dexterity to actually use my hands.

Holy God!

I've put it through the wringer

I ski patrolled in these gloves for 18 years, no kidding, no lie, no exaggeration. 18 years. I bought them full price $175 in 2000. The construction, materials and durability are off the charts. I put these gloves thru everything imaginable. From using torches on frozen snow-making machines, to drilling holes in ice for slalom flags, to strapping patients to backboards. I've climbed lift towers in these gloves. They are, without question, the single most durable piece of equipment that I have ever used. Earlier this season, the thumb finally blew out. I sent them to Marmot and they sent me a new pair in two weeks. So, yeah, 18 years from now I'll be writing another review about how freakin great these gloves are. If you are concerned about the high cost, $175 / 18 = $9.72 a year for warm, dry, hands. Bravo Marmot!!

Great Glove

I've used it several times

I have used this glove about 10 times now and I am very impressed so far. I tend to have very cold hands and the first day out with the new gloves was a beautiful but cold (for the PNW anyway) day 15 degrees. I threw a pair of hand warmers in the gloves skied all day and never once got cold hands. Since then I have used them on warm wet days and even for throwing snowballs at the kids and my hands have stayed nice and toasty and more importantly nice and dry. One thing to keep in mind is that they are leather so they will feel a bit stiff the first few times you wear them but they seemed to loosen up nicely after a few uses. So far best pair of ski gloves I have owed, I think I"ll be getting another pair for the wife.

Thx for mentioning that they soften up, my first reaction when receiving them was that they were a bit stiff.
