Mixed climbing gloves have to balance warmth with breathability, protection, and dexterity, and the Arc'teryx MX Glove finds that sweet spot. Built with the premium materials and the famous Arc'teryx attention to detail, the MX Glove helps get you up your next project in impressive comfort.
Awesome glove. Used and abused these things over the last month or so. The inside lining on the back of the hand is such a nice touch. Although not a cold weather glove, I've had them down to freezing temps and they don't actually perform that bad! I've gotten so many compliments on these things, it's insane.
Hate to do this because i love Arcteryx but these gloves dissapointed me before i even used them. Got them a month before i was going to use them ( please notice i ve got made in china version ) not sure if these ever were made in canada but anyways. Tried them on arrival and felt discomfort right away the fabric on the inside joins wasnt cut enough so i had to fold them inside out and cut the labels and pieces of fabrics on the inside so they wont poke my hands, no biggie but then it was snowing outside was high 20s ive decided to come outside and just see how they feel , they grab very nice if u hold anything in your hand a knife rope or pole they hold it amazingly but if temperature drops bellow 40F you will be warmer with out them literally i was hiking on the move in mid 30s with 15-20mph wind it made me colder then i was with out them for some unknown reason and after i grabbed stones and few trees to pull myself up right glove ripped right infront of me so then i put some glue on the joint on top of both gloves because i ripped off by myself the other one with ease so i figured id put some super glue over both of them . The area on top of the glove is very sensitive when u grab to something or make a fist because of the insulation padding foam inside when you make a fist front fabric picks up and pulls wrist part which creates alot of pulling force but my left glove i ripped it myself very easily so i think its either defect or they didn't put enough glue on the factory.
dont get me wrong they feel very nice and gram extremely nice i will continue using them but only 40F+ . i would recommend make a stitching on top of the glove or put some crazy glue over them just incase
Initial impressions of quality and design? Stellar. However across glove makers I usually wear a large, very rarely an xL. Got these in a large and they are obscenely tight, which is a good thing I suppose for warmer temps mixed climbing, spring/summer alpine pursuits etc. but avoid the cold, these lend themselves to a strangling, compressive effect, probably via venous congestion or something. My hands have always been cold wearing these unless I am highly active. First route out with these, did some easy AI 3 in the summer, in the Sierra. Did minimal rope, tool work and already have a hole on the softshell backing. Hands were ok with the ascent but once I cooled down it was a problem. I would've bought an XL. The just dont do it for me at this price. These might be great for the elitist winter golfer?
