Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Fit Unless you have 9 -inch palms and the fingers of a 4th grader, don't count on a good fit. Further, the fabric pulls so tightly across my knuckles when I grip a trekking pole, the blood flow is diminished and my hands get colder. Finally, the gauntlet ensures water running down my raincoat sleeve will go straight into the glove. I've never had trouble fitting into a medium glove before. Even a size large isn't large enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Cycling too I bought size large which fits true to size. I wear these mostly for my weekend road cycling training (1-2 hours) in temps from freezing to about 50 degrees. I have not tested their water resistance, as I try to avoid cycling in heavy rain. What I like is that I can shift and break well with the leather covered fingers, also these breath really well up to my moderate exertion level. I still pack a pair of fingerless gloves sometimes when mid 40s for long hill climbs - so I'll take these off when I know I'm going to sweat pretty seriously. All in all I am very pleased and would buy again. January 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by VERY Small in wrist but well made I wear an XL and the length is good, but the wrist area fits very tight. I was hoping to use these these gloves for 20 - 40 deg weather and use a liner for when it's on the colder side. But the problem with this strategy is the tight wrist - even without a liner the wrist is tight. With a liner, hands will be even colder with limited circulation due to tightness. I love the look, construction and waterproof features - fix the fit and these gloves are awesome for hiking in wet weather. January 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lanky Construction on these shells is fantastic which makes for great articulation. Flip side though is that it leans toward a lanky design - long fingers relative to the width. I went for large because extra large way to long but large then tends to be tight for width and fingers still tad long. (I have somewhat shorter stockier fingers but compared to most other gloves they are still longer / narrower - which is neither too small or too large) January 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product fails to live up to its claim of being waterproof In less than 90 minutes trekking in the Scottish rain the fingers were soaking wet. Took the gloves off and they were difficult to put back on again because on the wet lining and my damp fingers. My challenge to you is to come up with a pair of gloves where keeping out the cold is not the priority and keeping out the rain is. I am really disappointed as I like your brand for other kit and the gloves cost the best part of £50. December 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice gloves but small I like these gloves. Well made. I have not had a chance to test them in wet weather but so far so good. I am a bit disappointed in the sizing. I am not a large person (6' 175). I typically buy gloves in a large size. Sometimes large is too large for me but adding liners can solve that problem These gloves run small. The fingers are not too short. The width is the problem. They are tight across the back of my hand. If I make a fist it feel like I might rip a seam. I bought liners too but can't really use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Glove These gloves are good to about 20 degrees, totally waterproof and windproof. I live in SD so I also got the butter liners with those you are good to sub zero. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough and waterproof We use these for an exercise class in winter. We often work out in a wet or frozen field and constantly have our hands on the ground (pushups, etc.). They've performed perfectly, keeping our hands completely dry, through 2 full winter seasons (4 days per week), starting on a third. I'm a big fan of the OutDry technology. December 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Miss the gore-tex Gloves appear waterproof at first but on heavy exposure to hrs of rain they get saturated and soak to inside of glove. They do not dry quickly. In shady 40-50 degree drying conditions they still felt wet inside. Water does not bead on them like Gore-tex material does. My heavier insulated Gore-tex gloves stay dry inside and surface is water free almost instantly. I spent $65 for these Epic gloves as a waterproof layer without the insulation for those 40-50 degree cold rains that insulated gloves are too hot to wear. November 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing else like them OutDry technology has allowed Mountain Hardwear to create a glove that has no equal anywhere else on the market. This is a three-season shell glove that offers absolute waterproofness while still leaving you enough dexterity to tie your shoelaces. It's the perfect thing to have in a wet and windy summer storm in New Hampshire's White Mountains, and they allowed me to plunge my hands into slushy snow and icy runoff in absolute comfort during a late-season climb of Mount Mansfield, with some knit liner gloves underneath them. Until the invention of OutDry, only three-layer Gore-Tex shell gloves like the Arc'Teryx Alpha SV and Outdoor Research Firebrand offered waterproof protection in such a thin format, but the seam taping required to make those drove their prices up into the hundreds of dollars. OutDry's seam-free process, which takes just seconds to apply, allows MHW to offer this performance at a much lower price. Don't go into the wet without these gloves! May 27, 2013
