/ Marmot XT gloves anyone own a pair how good are they?
I have used the XT extensively as belay gloves in winter for sports climbing and the thread has now worn through, due to the rope running over the first finger. As a result they are starting to fall apart.
I've bought the Mountain Equip ones and will see how they go the this season.
Otherwise they are fantastic and others have said them same.
Had 2 pairs of them. A big fan.
Me too. Two pairs - one slightly larger which I wear with polyprop liners, and which are now reinforced a bit with seamgrip, and another that I wear on the bike
I've got a pair and they are good all round winter gloves. I ice climb in mine a fair amount, but they are not totally waterproof. For skiing, snow shoeing, cycling in winter etc. they are good. Don't buy them too tight and they will be warm as long as they are dry.
I got a pair of these for scrambling- the first pair started to split at the finger seams after the first use on Tryfan. I took them back and got another pair from the shop on the basis that there may have been a stitching fault. The second pair lasted 2 scambles before the same thing happened. Nice looking glove but just not tough enough. Luckily I got a full refund.
