Yes, I like collecting Marmot clothing. A good glove I would say. Easy to manipulate objects with. OK for warmth, but finger tips get could below -15 degrees Celcius.
Marmot Membrain (Waterproof and breathable)
Primaloft Insulation (this is on top of the hand)
Fleece lining Interior
Nose Wipe (located on the thumb, suede kind of material)
Velcro Adjustable Straps (located close to the wrists)
Abrasion Pads (located on top of the hand and fingertips)
Leather Material (located on the palm of the hand)
The good thing about this glove that you have a lot of dexterity with this glove. Objects are easy to hold and manipulate. Not a bulky glove. I can hold a small key and lock my door without taking off my glove. It's waterproof on the top of the hand, but not on the bottom (later about that). The abrasion pads on the top of the hands are very useful. It help protect the hand from any damage and you can be rough with the glove. Nose wipe is good and absorbs snot well. Leather on the palm of the hand allows for a tight grip on things. Fleece on inside is warm. Primaloft helps reduce weight. Good styling glove.
The fingertips get quite cold when the temp. falls below -15 degrees Celcius (5 degrees Fahrenheit). I even wore those cotton gloves you buy at Wal-Mart with these gloves and went skiing and my fingertips were still a bit cold. This glove doesn't fully feel windproof thought it has Marmot Membrain. The palm of the glove, since it is leather allows water through. When you tough snow, the warmth of your hand melts that snow to water, and the water seeps through the leather. It soaked through the glove when I was just shoveling snow. The leather is good for grip but sucks for waterproofness. This is a big flaw cause keeping all body parts dry is critical in a survival environment, especially for your hands.
Overall an ok glove for the price a got it at. Good for the city, but I would rather take another glove when going skiing or mountaineering.
