Hydra EXT™ Glove is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gloves for soggy, cold conditions. Love how good these are in soggy conditions, damp snow and coastal rain kept off with ease. The long gauntlet style cuffs were great for providing a little further warmth down from my hands and meant getting a decent seal between jacket and gloves a doddle! Maybe not as warm as a similar sized glove, but more dexterous because of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I purchased this glove as an alpine mountaineering glove. This pre bent fingers make carrying and axe long time very comfortable. The gauntlets are great during self arrest, the keep the snow out better than any glove. Once these gloves get wet after a days climbing, the freeze, making an alpine start a bit chilly. The interior is not wet, but the glove gets very stiff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be careful. I purchased these gloves for a ski trip. I used the size chart provided and have always worn large or medium large gloves as an adult. The elastic at the wrist band is too tight and very uncomfortable when worn for a period of time. Thankfully I brought along my old gloves and was able to "retire my new ones". These gloves did not keep my hands warm in moderate temperatures. This may be a factor of being too small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great gloves These are my ski gloves that I use all winter in Alaska. My hands stay warm on the skin up in 0 degree windchill. I have also climbed many times and they work perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Dry Used this glove for a 5 degree day of ice-climbing in Hylite Canyon. Hands stayed warm and dry. Curved fingers made it easy to hold the ice tools all day. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A glove that I can work in and stay warm As a patroller warmth and function are always a tradeoff until these gloves. Keeps me warm and dry up to about 17 degrees and that doesnt include the windchill. The glove is so well designed that I can pop in and out of them easily and draw them up tight one handed. Another win for the MH team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hydra EXT Nice gloves for alpine climbing. Maybe my favourite. The stitching around the thumbs is my only concern. My gloves look perfetcly new, except the stitching. They perform exelently for alpine climbing, where you don`t have to place ice screws. They`re therefor a bit expensive for what you get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best alpine glove, one improvement Best alpine glove I've ever used (and I've gone through a LOT). 3 things make a quality alpine glove - dexterity, breathability/waterproofness, warmth. On dexterity, the Hydra is far beyond the competition. I don't know if it's solely the OutDry technology, but you definitely don't feel like you're climbing with a layered goretex membrane glove. Great for climbing with your hands, messing with pro, v-threads, you name it. The breathability and waterproofness is also unrivaled. Under high output, I never felt like things were getting swampy in the glove. Even when spindrift got it (when I had them off) and my hand warmed it all up, the humidity just passed through. Lastly, I think the warmth truly comes from the above two combined. Sure it has insulation as well, but by having truly dry hands that you don't have to overgrip with because you have accurate feel with, it makes for warm hands all around. Better than thicker gloves from the competition. One improvement: the soft leather palm loves to soak up water. None of it gets to your hand, but the soaked leather freezes in really cold temps, which is not great. I think MH needs to work on their treatment of their palm leather, but until then use sno-seal and you're good to go. You'll have to reapply over the course of the season, and I don't know if it's the best for the outdry membrane, but this is definitely needed to keep that leather from getting water-saturated. Haven't tried baking the sno-seal in, might try that this year on my older hydras. Highly recommend this glove. Just get it and stop searching. It's that good.
