The almost perfect hiking glove

I have been looking for gloves like this for years.
Combine these gloves with a couple of heat packs and they are amazlingly versatile. You can fit a heat pack in the zippered pouch on each for extra warmth and still fit the waterproof shells in there, or wear the waterproot shells over the gloves and heat packs for staying warm and dry in cold wet nasty conditions. Do keep in mind these are heavy liners. Don't expect to use them comfortably for ice fishing all day in Minnesota in the dead of winter.
The only thing I will dock them for, and something I would expect in a pricey glove liner, is they are not "touch sensor" gloves. Although they will work with some devices or with a stylus, or if you stitch some conductive thread into the fingertip of the liner portion. (leave a trailing piece of thread inside the finger)

Try different methods of folding the shells flat before stuffing them into the backs to avoid a big lump.

Love these gloves. They fit perfectly on my hands and are super comfortable. Use them for biking in colder weather with the liners on and they blocked the wind great. Also use these for hiking near freezing weather and a little below. They're fairly warm w/o the liners on but with the liners on they help hold in the heat, giving a little extra warmth when needed. You can also use these gloves for skiing when its a little warmer, but when the temperature starts dropping these gloves work great as liners for larger/warmer ski gloves (which is how I used them for skiing in Colorado). Only issue that I have is packing the waterproof liners, if you don't fold them just right, they tend to give an awkward bulge to the top of your hand. Overall though, these glove are great and can be used for a variety of tasks.

These gloves are wonderful if you understood what you were ordering. These gloves fit true to size, very snugly but conform perfectly to the shape of my hands. They allow my fingers to be very dexterous, I never had to take them of all day while I was hiking. The liners by themselves kept my hands warm down to about 40 degrees while I was hiking, and i typically have cold fingers. I would expect using the included shell may have added a few extra degrees of warmth. It is extremely useful to be able to stash the water proof shell in the stuff pocket of the liners. Overall very good gloves as long as you are not looking for a super warm pair. That being said, i will be using these as liners with my old cheap pair of ski gloves on the cold days.

I wear these for winter trail running and in the skin track. With hand warmers thrown in the pouch they are good down to temps in the low teens. I have a hard time finding gloves that are warm enough yet still provide enough dexterity and these are perfect. This is my second pair. The first pair got quite a bit of use but developed a small hole on the side of the index finger. I was able to mend it but these gloves are so great that I wanted to snatch up another pair while they were on sale.

I used these as my lightweight liner gloves for Denali last May. What I really liked about these gloves is that you could put the outer shell on over the gloves for shoveling or building snow walls and not get the inner liner wet. Everyone else on our trip had wet liners every day but I was able to keep mine dry by using the outer shell when needed. Overall a great idea in design and saves you from having to bring extra gloves. These were the only lightweight liners I brought with me on a 3-week trip.

I purchased a pair of these awhile back and love them! Super warm, fit nicely underneath of my goretex shell gloves, and I don't need to take them off to gain dexterity. I use them mostly for alpine climbs. They are super durable. I've even found myself climbing fifth class rock in them (not recommended) and they didn't tear at all. They are always in the pocket of my Marmot Precip rainshell, which is ALWAYS in my bag, which is ALWAYS with me. I don't go anywhere without these gloves. Love them!

Ben at Backcountry.com on 06/25/2013

The liners are great. Low profile, warm in just below freezing, rigid enough at the the wrist that they won't bunch up when wearing layers. The covers are totally waterproof and fairly sturdy, although I wouldn't go climbing or anything with them. They are not seam-taped, so they will leak after a while, but is that really necessary here? They also stop the wind well. If I had to add to it, I would make them touchscreen compatible, but still great. Medium fits well and I wear a size 7.5 surgical glove

Runs small

Although I prefer mittens, I have a pair of these gloves and liners and like them. However I should have known that they run small. I ordered men's Medium for my husband and they don't fit. They are constricting across his knuckles and tight on his fingers. He is not a large man and Medium anything usually fits. Just size up. The gloves are nice.
Cathy at Campmor on 01/01/2014

These gloves are perfect to take along on spring, summer, fall backpacking trips. They are lightweight but warm. They are easy to put on compared to other waterproof soft shell gloves that have an internal liner. The waterproof shell is great for adding wind or water resistance. They are not bulky so you can still get things done around camp with them on.

Pat Gunning at Backcountry.com on 11/25/2013

Used these gloves in single digit temperatures and although my hands aren't totally warm they're not that cold.
I was walking for about 15 minutes in these temps and these held up pretty well compared to other gloves that I've used before (and more expensive) which were a lot bulkier. Haven't used these in wet conditions thus can't attest to the waterproof-ness.

Negative Reviews:

not waterproof

The little loop which helps you to pull the gloves on has borken twice now. The bigger issue however is that the shells are NOT waterproof. The fabric may be waterproof, but the seams are not sealed, so water pours in throught the seams when it rains. I bought these for cycling in the rain and they don't work for the purpose. Not sure how they can claim that the shells are waterproof.
grumpy at Campmor on 12/12/2013

I bought these gloves for cold, WET hiking. In a steady rain, the shell gets saturated in a few minutes, so fails the waterproof test. The gloves themselves are OK, and comfortable, but if you are looking for a waterproof solution to keep your hands warm and dry, look elsewhere.
