OR Gripper gloves are straight-up fitted windstopper fleece with a grippy palm material. The face is smoother than most types of fleece so snow is less likely to stick. Still warm if they get damp. Pretty durable, and under $50. My fave all-around cool-temp gloves.

Found I really like wool liners as somebody else posted, but they don't last long. I got two pairs for 10 bucks in a bargain bin, wish i wouldve grabbed some more.

I use a few different types of gloves depending on how warm it is out. I tend to alternate with and without gloves on the way up. Every time my hands start to heat up I take them off and clip them to my chest strap for a bit.

The types of gloves I really like are the REI One Gloves which are soft shell type gloves and the OR PL 150 gloves which are less water proof but breath really well, they are liner type gloves. I carry some waterproof Patagonia Gortex gloves in the pack for colder temps and wetter conditions.

None. Except if it's really cold. Then I don Pistolero'n'hockeytape remnants. I think they're more snowseal than glove now....

I have some leather work gloves that do the trick. They are reasonably water resistant, dry out quickly breath alright and don't have any built in insulation. So they work well as a shell and are just big enough to accept glove liners for extra warmth. I find I wear them more than my hat but still take them off occassionally when it's really warm out. In addition to their their moderate warm they provide much better protection than many other winter style gloves for things like camp chores and rope work. I bought a pack of 3 at costco for under $30 and would easily buy 3 more packs as they are have lots of use outside the snowboard piece of my life.


I was eying some all leather gloves in Home Depot yesterday. Decided against them as I thought they might not breath very well and hold water. I guess I need to reconsider. The price is right though. :thumpsup:


When its dry and really cold pigskin leather gloves are awesome. I used $20 kinko yellow all winter in Canada. When they get wet they suck ass. I also have blackdiamond guide Image expesive but pretty bomber.

I've really been liking my BD Punisher ice gloves. They are like a spring glove, but with super sticky grips for ice climbing. The nice thing about the sticky stuff is when gripping your ski pole you don't have to adjust the pole or add grips to the shaft. Really nice when traversing.

My second favorites are my trusty old Kinko 901s. These are my cold day gloves. I don't even bother waterproofing them but that's just me. My hands never get wet or cold in these unless it's below 0.

Lastly, for the really cold days, where temps are low, winds are high, I will grab my 6 year old BD Guide gloves. These things are like brand new because I rarely use them. They are always in the pack for emergencies but I might use them twice a year.

PSA: There are tons of gloves on The Clymb right now, even if the only sizes left are XS and XL. They've got stuff from BD, Dakine, and OR, among others.

I've used these all last season for touring, and love them. Generally, unless it is <15 degrees, I just keep these on all day, and my hands are good. Grip is good, and I can do everything except operate a smart phone. They aren't waterproof, which is one downfall if it is dumping wet snow. But most of the time, I'm good to go, same gloves all day. I would not wear them at a resort, not warm enough, but touring, super.

If you care I wear those gloves, Mountain Hardware Kepler jacket (different base layer depending the temps), Westcomb Event pants. I think its pretty dialed for me. 80% of the time, I don't change a layer. I've had all on for super deep days and never changed a layer once, and was comfortable on all the climbs. That's a huge thing in my mind, its 2/3 of your transition time right there.

Bangs for bucks the trusty Kinco 94HK or Kinco 901 are hard to beat.

I waterproof mine very effectively with Lanolin (sheep wool grease) spray , several coats, so its soaked in to the seams and joints.

They are cheap, durable, warm and can be used with inner wool/polyprob thin gloves too for extra comfort in cold conditions.

Not the most supple on cold days till they are broken in a bit, but with an inner on you can always slip the glove off to lace up or tweak something without getting too cold.

cheers
Rich

Been wearing these light XC ski gloves from MEC for the up this season and loving them. The price is definitely right too!
