Black Diamond Soloist Gloves

A warm glove for winter that’s very comfortable. Removable liner, leather palm, and a proprietary waterproof/breathable membrane in the shell highlight the features that help make this a good cold weather companion. Surprising warmth for the price point, balanced by somewhat limited use of your fingers. A step down from the well-reviewed Black Diamond Guide Glove in anticipated durability. Palm view Back of hand view BACKGROUND I purchased the Black Diamond Soloist glove to serve as my everyday… Full review

Patagonia R1 Daily Gloves

This is a lightweight shoulder season glove, or it’s also useful as a liner glove. I like the larger-than-normal "grab loops" because they’re easy to snap into a light carabiner. The swirlies on the palm look funky, but don’t expect them to provide much grippiness. The pointer fingers are touchscreen compatible. Pricy, but very useful.  BACKGROUND The gloves. They clip together, nice for such a light glove. out for a walk, mid-30s.  backhand view Sized from XS to XL, the R1 Daily gloves… Full review

Black Diamond Super Light Mitts

Cold fingers no more. Waterproof shell, decent insulation, and a long wrist cover keeps the cold out. My wife suffers from cold hands. Smaller gloves are great for ascending when we are working hard. But the peak and descent = cold. Enter the BD Super Light Mitts. These are a premium glove with great materials and a good amount of insulation. We've tested these on numerous high elevation >9k feet summits and they are worth their weight. The size small tops the scale at 8.7 oz. Below you can see… Full review

Eddie Bauer Mountain Ops Leather Gloves

Decent goatskin leather glove. Pretty warm from my usage. ( edited) Can't wait until this winter. Have only outside used them about a dozen times since purchased a year ago as well as car trips and regular winter wear.   EB Mountain Ops gloves Must say from the start that these fit better than my Mountain Equipment gloves that I reviewed. Look at reviews on Moosejaw and the Eddie Bauer sites if you decide on shopping for these. The goatskin leather is probably on its way out in the next few years… Full review

Outdoor Research RadiantX Gloves

OR's RadiantX Gloves employ their new HeiQ XReflex insulation technology to provide warmth while active yet retain dexterity to perform tasks without taking them off. Flexible shell material on the back of the hand, durable panels in the grip area with low profile, recycled poly insulation sandwiched between. Nice leash among other features.   . I spent the entirety of last winter testing Outdoor Research's RadiantX Gloves in a wide variety of conditions. From late fall of 2021 through to early… Full review

Outdoor Research Toddlers' Adrenaline Mitts

A pair of winter-ready (insulated and waterproof) toddler mitts that have kept my little one's hand warm and dry this winter. Like all kids stuff, sizing may be tricky, but as long as they fit, the mitts can handle almost any little kid's winter adventure. Conditions and Tester Specs: My daughter wore the Outdoor Research Toddlers' Adrenaline Mitts during the winter months in central Pennsylvania. At the time of testing, she was 15-18 months old (and wearing mostly 2T clothes for size reference)… Full review

Kinco 901 Lined Heavy Duty Premium Grain & Suede Pigskin Driver with Knit Wrist

If you place a premium on durability and cost-effectiveness, these four-season beasts might be your gloves. Well-insulated, made from pigskin with a double-layer of leather on the palms and fingers. You have to waterproof them, they take a fair bit of time to break in because the leather is so firm, and there are warmer options. Buy them from hardware suppliers—outdoors sellers overcharge for them. Though Kinco is a brand more often associated with people who work hard outside, their 901 insulated… Full review

Dachstein 4 Ply Boiled Wool Alpine Mittens

Thick wool mittens for winter weather. The key distinguishing factor is that boiled wool is thick and more resistant to wind and moisture than most other wool mitts. Because the weave is so tight, there is limited room for layering underneath them, but layering a shell over them, they’re a good option for cold weather. Durability is another plus. Introduction Old but good. Made in Austria of boiled wool. Breaking down the science behind this, washing some kinds of woven wool in hot water causes… Full review

Gordini Cache Gauntlet Glove

A good use of synthetic material to make a tough glove that resists water and dries out quickly. With additional glove liners they work well in cold temperatures. I’ve given up on finding the one perfect glove and now I keep a half dozen pairs for different activities like running, climbing, winter camping, and skiing. The Gordini Cache definitely fit into a couple of those slots.   Nice, dry snow, moderately warm gloves The Cache gloves fit nicely into the skiing and alpine mountaineering slot… Full review
