Rated 5 out of 5 by Versitile I've had these gloves for a couple years, and they will likely last quite a few more. Initially I got them just to keep in the car, but they ended up being the go to for so many things. I work with a contractor part time and these things are tough and dexterous enough that I wear them almost exclusively. The leather is top notch, and the stretch and pre-curve makes intricate tasks doable without having to remove them. when it gets cooler I have a pair of tight power stretch gloves that i put on underneath. I highly recommend them and can guarantee they'll be your go-to as well! September 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pair of Gloves Had these gloves last winter in below freezing weather, kept my hands warm! August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended backcountry glove Took an older pair of Torsion gloves on a two day backpacking trip to Little Yosemite Valley 4.3 miles in from the Happy Isles Trail head. Needless to say I was a happy camper!!! For context, temps ranged from low 50's to high 20's. Weather was sunny day one and snowy and rainy day two. Base elevation was just over 4000ft and destination was 6100ft. The core ascent was 1900ft over 3.4 miles (to the top of Nevada Falls). The path is very steep and narrow at many locations and included switchbacks carved into solid granite. My gear & supplies weighed in just over 40lbs Another side note, I prefer using a walking stick vs trekking poles so I always have one hand free. Needless say the gloves worked flawlessly. Toward the end of the trip I was very wet but never cold and I was extremely confident with my grip. For those of you who walked up and down the Mist trail at Yosemite, you know what I mean. Now try that hike with 40lbs of gear in snow and rain and you'll genuinely appreciate a glove like this. Light weight, very durable, warm to freezing temps and amazing grip. Thanks Hard Mountain for making a great glove! May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Work with a grip These are good for work outside where strong gloves are needed but so is a soft touch. Can grip tools and operate electronics that need buttons pushed or switches thrown. All in all, look forward to many years of use out of these. April 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Snug and warm. Normally when I'm climbing in the Alpine world, I have 3-4 different pairs of gloves with me. (Depending on conditions of course) These are the ones I wear when the wind picks up or I'm using my axes. First off, they are very comfortable. The materials used inside and out are spectacular. Although, if your hands are cold, and your gloves are coming out of your bag cold, it might be an uncomfortable minute to warm them up. But that's to be expected Second, these puppies are durable. I snag them on stupid stuff and grab lots of rock/boulders on the way up, with minimal, to no signs of wear. The leather used on palm seems pretty resilient as well. Which is clearly a good thing. So far, in my endeavors, these gloves have taken my abuse and liked it. Now, they're not waterproof, so take that into consideration if you're going to be slushin around in spring. Doesn't really phase me though. It takes a while to soak them through. Sizing. When ordering online finding the right size is tricky. So, if you're unable to find them locally, take a short trip up to your local Orange Home improvement store, find the glove section, and locate a pair of (black, gray and yellow) General Purpose gloves by FG, they're sizing is almost identical. Medium = Medium. I hate to write all of that in the review, but if you're gonna sink money into these Torsion gloves like I did, I'm sure you want them to fit too. Overall, I absolutely love these! Get them, no disappointments. March 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just About Perfect Gloves As a skier for nearly three decades, I've used a lot of different gloves. Unwieldy mittens, top-brand sheep's wool, et cetera. These days, whether it's a sunny, balmy 30 degrees in the backcountry sun or zero degrees, and a blasting whiteout, I use one pair of gloves, the Torsion gloves. Mine are an older model than are seen here, and maybe these are somehow different, but if they are the same quality, then I highly recommend them. I realize skiing in gloves this thin isn't for everyone, but for me they simply work, and here's why: -My hands stay warm and dry. I'm not falling much, granted, but it speaks volumes to the quality of these uninsulated gloves that I am able to use them alone, regardless of the conditions. -I have dexterity that is the envy of my compatriots. I don't need to take off these gloves to access my backpack or pocket contents, to adjust goggles, do or undo snaps, zippers, et cetera. I can sometimes even use my phone's touchscreen without removing the gloves. -These gloves are durable. I've used them for many seasons of skiing as well as shoveling waist-deep snow. (I did buy some work gloves to use for shoveling just to not risk my ski gloves, but I have used these gloves in the past.) -They are versatile. From the front groomers to the back bowls, but also as camp gloves on chilly treks, they handle many situations. I originally purchased these for mountain climbing, but I use them for traveling as well as for warmth under extra-large nitrile gloves for my day-job on the ambulance. In short, these are great gloves. While we all want to pay less for our gear, I'd say these are worth the price. January 15, 2015
