These are my go to gloves when hiking in rocky terrain that is cold and rough. I like to walk with gloves in case I slip so that I don’t rip my hands up on the shale rock. These are great for just that. Keep you warm and tough enough to handle a beating.
I like the weight of the glove. Bought as a glove to wear while active and not sitting still glassing. Haven't had the chance to put them to the test though. Fit is a little snug based on the sizing chart. I would recommend these gloves.
These are great gloves and very warm despite what some of the other reviews mention. They are thin enough and dextrous enough to shoot with and yet warm and water resistant. I live and hunt in BC, Canada and recently used them in the rockies down to to about 10F. My hands were warm as long as the rest of me was warm. If you allow your core to get cold, then your hands and feet will follow no matter what you're wearing. I found them to be warmer than a pair of Arcteryx Gore Tex ice climbing gloves that I'd been using for hunting previously. Another bonus is that they are much easier than other gloves I've used to get on and off...something which you're doing constantly when you hunt.
I own two pairs of the mountain gloves. I have one pair for hunting and one pair for the rest of the year. I love these groves and the grip they provide is amazing. They are 5-stars because they do everything as advertised. I do however wish they had a set that were waterproof with regular gortex. Living in the Pacific Northwest it tends to rain a bit. The gloves as they are now do work fine in a little bit of rain and I have used them in snow as well. Overall I will always keep a set of these around.
I am reading what some of the customers that bought these gloves and wear them in the conditions then say they aren’t warm. This is an AUTUMN glove.... not 20 degrees not 30 degrees and 40 degrees is good with now real wind or moisture. I really believe what ppl forgot about the season autumn..... it’s usually a warmer temp in the 40’s or 50’s. And lighter winds not from the north so much. I’m guessing it’s the new normal to think fall would be as cold as winter months nowadays
