Marmot Big Mountain GloveVideo by Backcountry EdgeWe are taking a closer look at the Marmot Big Mountain glove. These are durable, water proof and wind proof gloves that are perfect for long days in snowy conditions. The technology and material used in these gloves are very durable, but they are also very light weight. On the inside of this glove you have a Premaloft One insulation, which is a really light weight synthetic insulation that keeps the weight of the glove down. And one very important thing about Premaloft is that if it becomes wet, since it is a synthetic insulation, it is going to be able to retain its thermal efficiency, unlike other types of insulation like down. The other thing you have got going on on the interior of this glove is a dry clime by-component wicking liner. And basically if your hands begin to sweat all that perspiration is going to wick away from your hands and ultimately keep your hands warmer and drier. On the exterior of the glove you have got Marmot’s proprietary membrane water proof breathable fabric. This is nylon so they keep the weight down, but this is going to allow your hands to breathe as we move and as we start to sweat. You also have overlays here on the top of the glove and all along the palm of washable leather. So you have got a lot of durability there while also keeping the weight down. And you have an added level of water proofness in these gloves. Integrated on the inside is a Gortex liner. So that Gortex liner is going to give you added water protection, but it is also going to give you more wind resistance and ultimately more warmth in the glove. You have got a lot of features with this glove, so basically just starting at the top you have a pretty short gauntlet here that you are able to either put over top of or underneath of an outer layer or a jacket. And there is a really nice cinch strap at the top. So if you are wearing another glove, it is really easy to use. To loosen it up all you have to do is pull on that little tab. Underneath of the gauntlet you have a safety leash, so if you are on a lift and you need to take the gloves off for a short period of time to use your phone, you are not going to worry about them falling and that just tucks away really nicely into the glove. Cinch that back down. There is an elastic strap right here that, you know, cinches it down around your wrist and then an easy to use wrist strap on the front. You also have a little tab on the side where you can attach the gloves together, if you are just throwing them in your pack or throwing them on a harness, so you can keep them together. Lots of really nice easy to use features. And for the fit of these gloves, Marmot does provide a specific size chart for all the different sizes they have got and they show you how to measure your hand girth so you match the size. So the most important measurement you take is the widest part of your hand. You want to measure the girth all the way around just to get a nice fit on the glove. All in all these gloves are warm, water proof, wind proof and they are going to be great for all of you mountain pursuits. They are the Marmot Big Mountain glove.… Full Transcript
