Introducing The North Face's most technical big-mountain glove.

Ski down from powder-capped peaks with everlasting comfort in The North Face Steep Saiku Gloves. A Gore-Tex membrane gives guaranteed waterproof and breathable protection that keeps your hands dry as you conquer snowy slopes. With 150g PrimaLoft One insulation at the back of your hand and 100g in the palm, you get maximum warmth where you need it most and less insulation where you need more mobility. And the FlashDry lining wicks moisture away from your palm quicker than you can get to the bottom of the resort for lunch.

The North Face constructed its Steep Saiku from the inside out for a consistent size. Its Thermo3D design prevents any cold spots throughout the glove, and the fourchette-box finger construction ensures your digits get the toasty comfort they deserve. Radiametric Articulation sets the glove in your hand's natural position for an easy grip on your poles. The full-coverage gauntlet seals out any blustery blizzards and the removable Wrist Oven leash leaves room for handwarmers on seriously frigid days.

North Face Steep Saiku

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The Drawcords broke 2nd day on the mountain on 1/9/2014. Sent them to North Face Warranty. Today (3/31/2014); they informed me via email that it will be 2-3 more weeks before I see a corrected pair. I work at a outfitter store in colorado. Will not personally purchase or recommend north face products to any future customer ever. period.

Should loose a 0 in the price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After 4 season of my fingers getting cold in my $19 Head gloves from Costco I decided to upgrade. I'm an avid NF user and usually feel they deliver a product that is worth the $$$. In this case I was sadly disappointed. Spent last week in BC an Idaho backcountry skiing. My hands were cold every day. While the fit and dexterity were good, cold hands stink when your miles from anyplace warm. I will be reaching out to Backcountry and NF and will update once I hear back.

Warm is an understatement

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Well I always get cold hands for as long as I can remember. This year I was about to give up and get mittens, which while warm I just can't stand the lack of functionality. In a final gasp, I was chatting with a Backcountry rep and they pointed me towards Steep Saiku's so I decided to give them a try even though the price is steep. I took them out this morning for a test run and it is +3 F outside. First I used my existing ski gloves during my walk and my finger tips were cold. Then I took these guys out on the same journey in the same weather, totally different results. After wearing TNF Saikus I can tell you my hands were finally warm. Thanks for the awesome recommendation. Plus the style is great and construction appears beefy. I'll use these for morning walks, snowplowing, snowboarding and whatever else winter throws my way!
