At first sight, these gloves appear unremarkable, but their thoughtful details and bomber build eventually impressed me. The guts of the gloves, four ounces of downy but water-resistant Primaloft, made them quite warm yet lightweight and supple. A waterproof-breathable shell kept out the wet stuff, waterproof leather palms provided solid pole grip, and an elasticized wrist gaiter sealed in warmth. I found the Glissades comfortable and warm enough for all but Annapurna-level cold.
