These gloves are both comfortable and warm. As their name indicates, they are great wind stoppers. I work in an area where the wind chill can drop the temperature by 15 degrees or more. These gloves allow me to stay warm and continue the work I need to do. The leather tips and palms are great for grip--I'll have to wait to see how long they hold out. So far, I'm absolutely delighted with my Windstopper gloves and will wear them until they fall apart.
Great glove for mild conditions and easy use. This glove is certainly warm for its weight and does what the fabric claims..."windstopper." I would not recommend this glove for a wet environment as it looses almost all of its insulating abilities. That aside, I use this glove a good bit around camp when temps aren't too cold. I like the dexterity I still get with this glove and the fit is nicely conforming.Disclosure: While I purchased these gloves, I participate in the Gore MountainTechs community where I sometimes receive products for participation in the program.
These are the only gloves I own... because they are outstanding. As with any Marmot product, these gloves are very well made. They have windstopper material in the glove and it really shows when the wind starts whipping. My hands stay warm and I can still manipulate all of my fingers. The best thing about these gloves is the leather material on the palm and finger tips, it makes it much easy to manipulate items with the gloves still on your hands.
I got a pair of these to replace my Northface Denali gloves. They are much more comfortable and warmer. They are true to size. My only complaint is the grip is a little slippery, so when driving you need to be careful cause your hands might slip on the steering wheel.
I Got these gloves thinking that Going cheap price wise would result in cheap quality. I was so wrong. These gloves are the best I've ever had. Usually when I snowboard the insides of my gloves are soaked and they start to smell like someone shoved pig crap in there. These ones stayed dry the whole time and I still have them.
I used to rock leathers with liners, tried and true, for YEARS! My girlfriends parents bought me these for christmas and I LOVE THEM!!! Great hand feel, very warm, and super windproof!!! I also ski and have a feeling that they will work just fine on the slopes. I ride every day, to work, to the ladies house, the bar, I haven't been on the subway in MONTHS... get these gloves...
Got a pair of these to replace my North Face Denali gloves. They are much more comfortable and warmer and the Windstopper fabric helps a lot. Your hands will still get cold in these if its below 30 degrees, so don't expect these to replace true winter gloves.My only complaint is the grip, its leather, and using them while driving doesn't give the best traction on the steering wheel.
These gloves kept me warm all the way to Kilimanjaro's summit. The temperature got down to 0F and these gloves with a lightweight liner were perfect. The windstopper technology worked wonderfully and the soft fleece is great when you have a runny nose in cold weather. They managed to keep my hands warm without overheating. I haven't tried them in rain/heavy snow so a water proof cover may be required in these situations. Sizing was a bit smaller than i expected based on the measurements listed. I was right on the line between medium and large and the medium turned out to be too small. If you're in a similar situation you may want to order up a size if you ever wear liners.
I purchased these to replace an exact pair, of which the right glove decided to wander off to a different malt and barley establishment than the one I went to. Anyway, these gloves are awesome! They stay soft enought when it's cold to wipe my runny schnozz and as long as the activity level is high, they keep your hands warm. They are best, for me, in moderate teperatures 0F and up for running, biking, or just wearing. And they do stop the wind...thus their name.
"Fantastic windstopper gloves with a lot of freedomto wiggle your fingers!"
Holy Smoke!! These are some comfy gloves. I use them every day when i go to work on my bicycle. They have a nice soft backside so I can wipe my running nose yak! and they still stay warm. They neatly fit around my wrist and close the gap with my Marmot TR6. And the Marmot looks good on the outside!
