Disappointing construction I own last year's model and took them on a trip through the Waddington Range. At first I was quite pleased with the overall performance of this glove. The OutDry technology worked wonderfully in some very wet and cold conditions. The dexterity is about what you'd expect from a double glove system, though the liners left a lot to be desired . Fairly early into the trip the inner material began shredding at the elastic wristband, exposing the OutDry membrane. It didn't take long for the tear to spread, effectively compromising the function of the membrane. I was disappointed with the quick breakdown of the glove on a long expedition. Furthermore, I was perhaps the most displeased with the performance of the liners themselves. the seam on the index finger ran directly over the front pad of the finger which was cumbersome and uncomfortable. I can only assume this was related to faulty construction and not the intended design of the liner. The glove showed promise, but ultimately fell flat. April 21, 2013
Wicked Warm Gloves I own last years model, but don't seem any different besides color. I got these glove for mountain bike guiding in Bolivia on the Death Road. The start of the ride is at 15,400 ft and often raining or snowing and the 20-30 F. You then ride about 20 km down hill on pavement, so you reach speeds upwards of 35-40 mph. I had tried several different gloves before these and they either didn't keep my hands warm, or they would eventually get wet and then cold. I have spent 4-5 hours riding in steady rain and these gloves never let me down. Also the dexterity is good enough I can ride comfortably and use shifters/brakes without trouble. Durability has been excellent so far. Road them 4-5 times a week for about 3 months through the rainy season. Not as much need when it's not rainy season. The lining inside the shell and removable liner are really nice for when it starts to heat. Over all you can't go wrong with these November 3, 2012
Nice glove system This is a great glove system that you can mix and match as situations change. they are designed for very cold snowy conditions so don't expect to be able to pick up a dime with these on. but for their intended purpose, cold snow, wind, or high altitude you can't go wrong.

Glove I use in the snow twice a week. Pros: The glove is completely water proof. I put my hand in a bucket of water for 20 seconds and no leaks. The wrist leashes are great and I love the orange lining color. I like the low stick type of velcro used to hold in the liner gloves. Cons: When the leather on the glove is wet is stays cold. This cold is then transfered to your hand. Nylon would dry out much faster and not maintain the cold. The leather also dries a lot slower then nylon so it may not dry out over night. I would like to see a slightly heavier leather for the glove so I could use it in other applications. February 21, 2012
super waterproof I'm working as a bike guide in Bolivia. It is currently the rainy season and every pair of gloves I have didn't live up to the challenge. I got these because I was sick of cold wet hands. I start my day at 4700 meters and during the summer it is nothing but rain and snow. I have a nice pair of Gore Bikewear gloves that until here were awesome. I am often riding at 40mph in steady rain and these gloves have yet to let my hands get wet or cold. When we get farther down and it's warm and rainy I put out the liner and just wear the shell, the comfy fleece makes it so they are still enjoyable to wear that way. They are JUST the right size, so if your confused about what to get I would step it up just a little. Bottom line: super waterproof and great in the 30's at speed. February 9, 2012
Great Glove These gloves keep your hands warm and dry on those cold days coming down the mountain and on the lift. The liners work great alone when your working you way up hill. Overall great glove. January 30, 2012
Not durable I like the initial look and feel of these gloves. I took them on one trip to Aconcagua and the inside material totally ripped out. I was pulling my hands in and out to do certain tasks on the mountain quite a bit but this should probably not have happened because it was the 4th day I wore them. Overall a warm comfortable glove but disappointed in the durability. January 16, 2012
