OK so I wanted to love these gloves. From the catalog they look bad ass enough. I loved the design and with a name like Mountain Hardwear you can't go wrong I thought. Well I was totally wrong. I live in Northern Europe .. I'm talking Scandinavia winters. But it wasn't even winter that already made me sour on these gloves. I took them out in cold damp weather above 0 C (32 F). I could feel the wind go right through these gloves. I took them out several times. Just not working for me I'm afraid.

I haven't owned a pair of gloves since I was 10 so I decided to break that streak when I turned 20 and have not regretted it a day. They are super warm (though surprisingly thin) and the leather on the palms of the hands and fingers makes them ideal for any winter activity. I would HIGHLY recommend these gloves or any other Mountain Hardware gloves. Go get some. Now.
