Steep Purist Futurelight Glove
You don't have to live and die by sheer chutes and drop-off-the-face-of-the-earth summit runs to enjoy The North Face's Steep Purist Glove, it'll just feel all the more right if you do. Its durable, low-profile, and dexterity-enhancing design will be perfect for all those runs where you're pole-planting hard or scraping the mountain as you send it down steep terrain. The water-resistant goat leather and waterproof insert team up to keep out any snow you might kick up, while PrimaLoft insulation delivers toasty warmth as you search for untouched runs in frigid temps. And as an added bonus, the waterproof insert technology actually works to improve upon dexterity, so your protection won't come at the cost of much-needed mobility. Foam protection on the knuckles and back of hand ensures that you can brush away tree branches without worry, and the undercuff design with a neoprene cuff and adjustable closure keeps your warmth securely sealed in.

comfortable and breathable
- I've used it several times
Overall a solid glove -fit is true to size with most other gloves -breathability is good -dexterity is adequate for an insulated leather glove -warm, but not for the coldest days -foam padding on the back is ok, but not super burly I bought these to replace a pair of Hestra vertical cut Free Ride gloves which I can no longer find in my size. I am about a dozen days into them, mostly in the back country. My Hestra size is 10 and these in XL fit similarily - slightly bigger. These gloves are definitely more breathable than the Hestras. They work fine to zip jackets, mess with boot buckles, rips skins. I do wish they had a tech finger tip so I didn't have to take them off to mess w my phone. I think these are warmer than my Hestras, but not what I am wearing on really cold days. Also compared to the Hestras which have so much padding I could wear in a bar fight, these have a lot less. Wrist velcro closures and elastic leashes are nice touches. A season or two on them will be necessary to speak to durability, but so far I'm guessing they will last me 3-4 seasons of heavy use which is my norm.
