User Review: Marmot Men's Randonnee Glove
Fabric: gore tex/pseudo leather palm
Price Paid: $80
this is my glove of choice for cold but not frigid conditions. the insulation is pretty good. if you are moving around and active, it's feasible to use these to ten degrees, perhaps a little colder, provided your core is protected. some people may find these uncomfortable below 25 degrees. they are fairly close-fitting, so i generally don't wear glove liners and think they would compress the insulation.
the gloves have a good gauntlet to cover your sleeves, they cinch tight without difficulty, and they have a detachable runaway loop for your sleeve so they won't drop and blow away.
the palm material is reasonably grippy, but i have seen better. durability has been good, though i haven't subjected these to much abuse. i don't think i have heavily tested the waterproof aspect of these, but i have hiked in them, and they do breathe.
the insulated inner lining is not removable, so these are not great for extended outings where one needs things to dry off overnight. if i thought they were intended for that purpose, i would downgrade to three stars. Marmot makes a glove with a solid removable insulated lining, but they are significantly more expensive. i use them primarily for day hikes and other shorter-term outdoor things, they have been very good for that purpose.
