Why We Like The Exposure Light GORE-TEX Glove

The Exposure Light GORE-TEX Glove was crafted with alpinists' needs in mind. High-durability materials, technical insulation, and dexterity-boosting design combine to deliver an advanced alpine glove that meets every we need we have on the climb. Technical routes and delicate ropework require hand mobility that's often impeded by comfort features, but a pre-curved design and carefully-selected components let us maintain both our dexterity and our warmth.


  • Alpinist-designed glove for technical cold-weather climbs
  • GORE-TEX engineering for weather protection and moisture management
  • Pittards goat leather is rugged, abrasion-resistant, and warm
  • Stretch nylon increases hand mobility for improved dexterity
  • Primaloft with Cross Core delivers high-level heat in all conditions
  • Fleece and tricot lining for moisture-wicking, soft-on-skin comfort
  • KEVLAR®-threaded seams add reinforcement in high-wear areas
  • Hook-and-loop tab creates a cold-resistant seal at the cuff

Two seasons of daily use.

Got two seasons of 40 hours/week ski patrolling use out of these gloves. Reasonable dexterity for fiddling with band aids and explosives. Cuffs fit under jacket sleeves. Warmer season one than season two. Gloves eventually packed out and failed at seams on 1st finger and thumb of dominant hand. Recently replaced with new pair. Not waterproof, but reasonably water resistant. Not recommended for cold resort skiing, not warm enough. Not recommended for ski touring, too warm for most climbing/skinning. Solid work glove for winter outdoor professional.

Solid glove, wish had better insulation.

Great leather quality (thick and abrasive), awesome look as well. However, I personally have experienced multiple times cold fingers in early mornings, despite keeping them inside my jacket and not exposing to any cold. They do retain heat, but not perfect for temperatures 15 and below IMO. If not for that 5/5 and worth the price

Little red riding glove

Im sure they would have been great, but they didnt fit. I measured perfectly according to the website. But they were too small and dont offer a xxl. I encourage MH to review the size guide and to maybe think about larger sizes.(for me!)

Missing one thing

Great quality gloves. Only problem with them is no touchscreen compatibility. That was a deal breaker for me. Too bad, they are awesome otherwise.

excellent belay glove

awesome glove for belaying at the ice park. Enough insulation to keep my hands warm and dexterous enough to feed rope. Exactly what I was looking for.

Your dad's work gloves but better.

Fit is spot on. Great dexterity, warmth and feel whether swinging an axe or throwing snowballs.

A bit tight

Like the gloves wish the gauntlet was leather/not as tight though. Hope to have the chance to wear them more soon and hopefully they wear in and become less snug…sizing seems a little small

Wonderful gloves. Pull cords are very strong, and has a very burly wrist strap.
