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
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
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
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
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. December 18, 2013
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
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
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
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
Dissapointment I live in Fairbanks Alaska and need gloves to keep my hands dry and warm. when I got the gloves in the mail I realized they are only shells, no insulation in them. Like most other gloves, the fingers are longer than my fingers, and putting on small wool liners made the gloves too tight. There is nothing wrong with the worksmanship or quality, but it's not enough for Alaskan life. March 21, 2013
Tough water and windproof shell This glove is perfect for wet or windy conditions when you are engaged in moderate to high activity in cold conditions. It would be fine as stand alone glove in moderate conditions but if it is going to be used for hunkering in cold conditions, you definitely a wool liner and perhaps a larger size as they are true to fit. Overall, I am very happy with this product as a shell. March 14, 2013
Bomber Gloves Great gloves, totally waterproof. The palm material is super grippy but tends to stay wet though your hands will be warm and dry. February 23, 2013
Functionality Purchased this because my hands are very susceptible to cold & wetness due to decades of exposure. On a recent winter trip in the Smokies, they proved to be the most versatile glove I've ever used in 25F-40F conditions. Wind & moisture were blocked. I bought a L size to accomodate a liner, which I had to wear in certain conditions. However, this size decreased the dexterity of my fingertips. A medium size fits my hand w/o a liner, but does not provide space for a glove liner and I wanted to extend the useful range of conditions for this glove. 'Grip' capability of the glove is very good. I was able to operate pack & clothing zippers and a small digital camera w/o much difficulty. January 7, 2013
Good for backcountry This is a great glove for backcountry skiing. It's light enought that you don't overheat. It has a great shell to protect the hands in the wind. January 4, 2013
Epic Mountain Hard Wear This was a gift to my grandson ( age 22). He was very happy to get it. He recommended the brand. I don't know when he will be wearing them. January 3, 2013
outdry or indry? i bought these to tagteam with a pair of wool gloves for my daily winter cycling. while they are still a little cumbersome dealing with keys or whatnot, the 'precurve' makes them the most comfy and dextrous waterproof gloves ive experienced. they breathe fantastically, layer wonderfully, and keep me dry as the sahara even in the most drenching downpours. only gripes: they arent terribly well-insulated (but thats not what i bought them for, nor do i live in a freezing climate) and, though the insides stay dry to the core, the shell tends to take a while to dry (which makes for wet pockets when you stow them, hmmm). December 6, 2012
Light weight I will use for skiing. This is a light weight glove that would need a liner for extra cold days. I got extra large so I will have extra room for a liner on cold days. The glove may be too small for that. The glove seams a little on the small side. November 26, 2012
Eh. I would have been bummed on this if I had payed full price. Totally synthetic and budget approach to waterproofing makes for a poor fit. June 10, 2012
Great Glove This is a great waterproof glove. The durability, grip and dexterity are awesome. They do fit snug though. If you plan to wear a liner inside..order a size up. I ordered a medium since I wear this size in most gloves. I am unable to wear a thin liner inside. January 16, 2012
I Believe in OutDry As a shell, this glove is amazing. The OutDry is a great advancement in waterproofing and wind blockage. When the temps drop, I put my wool liner on and I am perfect. I have not wore the gloves in temps below 25F, so I can say how effective my combo is. Now, I am looking to replace my alpine gloves with another OutDry product from either the Alpine or Mountain line from Mountain Hardware. January 14, 2012
Good Glove I've used this glove along with a very light liner for cross country skiing in the Alaskan interior down to -15 and stayed comfortable. If you have questions about your size or fall between sizes, go up in size. Glove has a nice fit to help with dexterity. January 1, 2012
Just a Shell While the description doesn't say it this glove is more of a shell. Had I known this I would have ordered a larger size. This was incredibly waterproof though and warm for hikes down to 20. December 23, 2011
Fishing gloves I been looking for some gloves to use with my guide service on those cold winter days and now I have found them. These gloves keep the wind out while running up and down the lake in my boat. They are easy on and off .I have been very impressed with the performance of these gloves so far. December 23, 2011
Moto glove..!? Great glove. Im using it for my Motorcycle. I like to ride with a glove that I can feel the grips, not a thickly padded riding glove, and this outer glove is great when I hit wet weather. December 14, 2011
Best Gloves Ever! My hands stayed warm and dry on our hunting trip despite the cold rain and 30 mph winds! November 25, 2011
Best Gloves Ever I'm a huge fan of the Epic glove. Complete wind and waterproofing is key for bad days in Chicago or backpacking in Idaho. The gloves are very lightweight and compact easily. The grips are the best I've ever seen on a glove. I can do everything with these gloves that I can do with my bare hands. They're a bit large but I like them that way. When it gets colder out, I'll use that extra room to wear liners. Nice job, Mountain Hardwear! November 24, 2011
Great Glove Best Waterproof Gloves I've worn. Great tactile feel when used alone and great warmth when used with a liner. I have abused mine greatly and they are still going strong. October 22, 2011
Warm hands ahead I was looking for a good winter glove that would provide warmth and dryness. The fit is great and the one time I wore them they did keep my hands warm and dry. I will know more in a month or two as our Michigan winter approaches. October 12, 2011
Epic Glove Sizing feels just right. I haven't had a chance to break these in yet but they appear that they are going to do the job nicely. October 12, 2011
Men's Epic Glove I had been searching for a waterproof glove to add to my motorcycle gear. Searched motorcycle outfits but could not find a waterproof glove that had very good reviews. I googled waterproof gloves and found Mountain Hard Wear. They have several types of gloves available. I found Men's Epic glove - reviews were good. I purchased them and added them to my gear. September 1st I rode my BMW from NW Missouri to MIssissippi. On the return trip I ran into about 60 miles of rain (not a down pour but steady rain). These gloves are not bulky, they kept my hands dry, warm and no wind penetrated into them. Excellent product!! September 6, 2011
Advertised as WaterProof...and IT IS WATERPROOF! I am a professional outdoor event photographer. Irecently tested a pair of Epic Gloves at the 2011 LA Marathon which was an endless deluge of rain. I was hired along with a dozen other photographers to photgraphe runners on the course with a telephoto lens and lots of weatherproof gear at a couple of different locations. It started raining at around 7 AM and then started POURING way past when we left the course around 4 PM. All the photographers were complaining about the Gloves they had except me. My hands were warm and DRYafter continuous rain hit them for hours. I was able to change memory cards and operate the controls on my camera without taking off the gloves! The Epic glove was superior to the Kayaking gloves many of the other photographers wore. Their hands were soaked and cold by the end of the day. I ordered two pairs, one for me and one for my wife. NUFF SAID! April 27, 2011
Just about perfect Got to take my Epic gloves out on a 3 day river trip recently. Solo canoeing in WV, class III whitewater, and i wore the Epic's basically the entire time (except to sleep/eat) Temps were around 40 most of the time, Snowed the first day, rained the rest. water temps around 35. The epic's kept my hands warm, but never too warm, and only once at night did i throw on wool liners. The gloves got wet inside in a rapid, and once i got to camp, took an hour or two to dry off inside. They did dry almost immediately once i warmed up though. Out dry never leaked water, i submerged the glove entirely, and water seeped in through the top. Gloves fit great, fingers are longer than i'm used to, and having full range of movement in a glove was an odd sensation. Only complaint is that they're a bear to get on when everything is already wet, and the gauntlet ends are awkwardly small. April 20, 2011
Great glove for the casual user Took out the Epic Gloves for a weekend ski trip. It was mild weather, between high 20s and low 30s. The only time my hands got cold were after gripping the cold metal of the chairlift by the time I got to the top of the mountain. Otherwise, hands were warm and protected the whole day. Nice glove for what I used it for that day, but I'm not sure if they'd be warm enough for sub 20 temperatures. February 21, 2011
Great glove, wish I had them longer These gloves were great. I wore them ice climbing and they were pretty warm for how thin they were. I hate wearing bulky gloves while climbing. Sadly someone thought they needed them more than I did, so I had to order another pair. February 13, 2011
Exactly as Promised Lightweight, waterproof, windproof, comfortable. I got them muddy, so I put my hands under a faucet with these gloves on and rubbed them together. They cleaned-up nice with soap and water, and to my surprise my hands remained perfectly dry inside. Great for mountain biking and camping in cold weather. If it's below 30 degrees, and you are not moving, these become insufficient. January 24, 2011
Good glove This glove needs a liner to keep your hands warm. The glove is completely waterproof and the extra material does the trick with keeping snow out. January 22, 2011
Great Gloves I was looking for a glove that was warm and waterproof, but wasn't too bulky.These are perfect! The fit is great, and can be paired with a liner glove if you need more warmth! Highly recommended! January 11, 2011
Quiver of One My Epic gloves are never too far from my side. This is a glove that works for a variety of conditions XC skiing, backcountry skiing, or just cold weather work. I have pretty poor circulation in my hands and typically run cold. Recently I wore my Epics for a day of backcountry skiing. Temp was 14 degrees outside with a light breeze. OutDry really works! My hands stayed drier in these gloves than anything I've used previously. I usually take several pairs of gloves to cycle through while I'm out, but I stayed in these all day. I did get pretty cold once, but that was when I stopped for a late lunch. I think most folks will love the durability and dry comfortable feeling a pair of Epics can provide. January 10, 2011
Excellent, versitile Glove The Epic glove is windproof, water proof, and an excellent choice for a wide variety of uses. I originally bought them to use as a waterproof biycling glove for use on my company's bicycle tours in Alaska. Bicycling in cold weather is a real challenge for gloves, because your hands are necessarily directly exposed to the wind all of the time. In addition, the act of holding on to handlebards squeezes bolld out of your hands, making them colder yet. Usually if you get a glove that can handle both of those problems, it is so big and bulky that you can't operate the shifters and brakes easily. The Epic glove provides the best combination of resisting wind and water, insulation, and dexterity that I have ever found. During the winter I hike and mountain climb in the Chuach Range behind Anchorage, and here again the Epic gloves shine. they work down to about 29 degrees. December 1, 2010
Epic Gloves I purchased the Epic Gloves because they were windproof and waterproof. I took them out in the pouring rain yesterday also wearing my Exposure II Parka, which is also waterproof, and I had no rain get in the glove whatsoever. I was completely dry except for my shoes they were soaking wet, but my hands were bone dry. I can't wait for the temperature to drop so that I can use them when i go hiking. These gloves are great and I would highly recommend them. September 28, 2010
