Best all around lightweight gloves
February 05, 2012
Got these just before a big snow, working outside then skiing in 25º weather my hands still stayed warm and dry. The wicking is excellent: I could see the steam coming from the tips when I got too warm but it didn't feel clammy inside the glove. Could grab anything without it slipping and didn't feel the cold when the wind picked up down the slopes. Super soft and fits to your hand when you put them on, won't soak up water when the snow is slushy. Great for all around or glove liner, well constructed and haven't snagged on anything so I know they will last more than one season. Size fits true to chart and comes up over your wrist to keep the snow out.
Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value, Cons: can't use smart phone with built in grip
