WINNER: Merlin

Working together with GORE-TEX for the first time, we are excited to combine our expertise and experience in building world-class mountain products. Our newly developed GORE-TEX range includes waterproof clothing and accessories built to withstand the most demanding conditions as well as innovative products that blend performance and comfort for everyday use.

Our collection of gloves engineered with GORE-TEX offer high levels of warmth, protection and dexterity. This range includes highly technical waterproof gloves for dedicated winter mountaineers through as well as comfortable and windproof gloves for everyday use.

The winner can choose one pair of either Pivot GTX Glove, Guide 2 GTX Glove or a Fulcrum GTX Glove.

Pivot GTX Glove £120 – Women's available

The ultimate winter gauntlet, the Pivot GTX Gloves are designed for technical alpine and ice climbing. Made using GORE-TEX® Active waterproof technology and PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation, these robust and flexible gloves provide superb warmth and wet weather protection on bitterly cold climbs. Standing up to the harshest of conditions, they have extra knuckle protection and reinforced digital leather in high wear areas to increase durability.

Rab Athlete Callum Muskett: "These new gloves offer a hand hugging shaped fit which greatly improves dexterity for technical climbing. They are also incredibly warm for their size, with a neat primaloft layer insulating your hands. As somebody who has always suffered from poor circulation in my fingertips I've been using these gloves on more and more technical climbs where previously I'd have only felt comfortable with thin gloves. They are the perfect companion for ice and snow climbing."

Guide 2 GTX Glove £110

Designed for long winter days, the durable yet dexterous nature of the Guide 2 GTX Gloves make them well suited to dedicated winter mountaineers, outdoor professionals and guides. The robust outer uses GORE-TEX® Warm waterproof technology with a supple Pittards® leather palm and digital leather reinforcement. This is combined with PrimaLoft® Gold synthetic insulation and a high pile lining to ensure warmth, dexterity and protection on cold, damp climbs.

Rab Athlete Callum Muskett: "I've used the Rab guide gloves for years now as my reliable warm alpine and Scottish winter gloves. Warm and waterproof enough to fend off prolonged cold and dexterous enough for technical mixed climbing. I've used this new iteration all summer for alpine guiding and personal use. The fit seems to be improved whilst the adjustable cuff fits neatly over even big jackets keeping the warmth in and the snow out."

Fulcrum GTX Glove £90

Made with GORE-TEX Grip waterproof technology, the durable stretch outer and high pre-curve ensure excellent tool handling on more technical routes. The Fulcrum GTX Glove features a mapped 3D construction for high dexterity and suppleness, including PrimaLoft® Gold insulation and a PrimaLoft® Grip Control palm.
