I purchased these gloves to use on my study abroad trip to Antarctica. They were terrific! The palms are grippy which was a huge benefit for use in a cold, wet environment (as i was often grasping onto wet ropes and railings on a rocking ship with icy decks). The gloves really took a beating being used daily and stood up very well. Not only are they sturdy they are easily washable, and showed no signs of losing their 'waterproofing'. Most of the time they were warm enough, but on several super cold days they were roomy enough to ware with thinner glove liners. The wrist-cinch is my favorite part as it really secured the gloves, and alleviate any fears of losing one from it 'slipping off'.
I'm an avid skier & usually wear mittens but these Montana gloves kept my hands warm on the mountains, I even picked up a pair of the Montana got men for my boyfriend.. Thanks Northface for making such excellent products:)
I have yet to find a glove to keep my hands warm but these Northface women's Montana gloves did the trick as we say up North they are Wicked Warm:) my boyfriend even ordered a pair of the Men's Montana gloves for himself.. Great product and very well made..
These gloves are awesome and perfect for use even when you need a full range of motion with your hands. Normally I hate hard outer shell gloves because they limit what movements you can make with your hands and make me feel really restricted, but these gloves actually don't. I use them for skiing and while hiking in winter months and they are spectacular. My hands stay warm the entire time I'm outside and never get wet.
