Doru N.wrote a review of Marmot Ultimate Ski Glove - Men's on April 15, 2018
Familiarity: 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.
