A high-performance option for cold weather activities, the insulated Ibex Men’s Granite Mountain Gloves are a hybrid mix of leather, softshell fabrics, and Merino wool. The end result is warmth and comfort for long days outdoors.
Built for durability, comfort and keeping your digits warm, the Ibex Men’s Granite Mountain Gloves have a hybrid construction that is great for a multitude of outdoor cold weather activities. Let’s take a closer look.
The materials we have on the gloves are a Scholer wool blend soft shell with a 100 percent Merino 12 flannel. So you have got are really unique combination of wool and soft shell fabrics here to provide really good warmth, insulation, durability and stretch for movement. So you have got a really easy to manipulate glove with those fabrics in play.
The insulation on the inside is a wool air lofted wool insulation. So, again, you have got really good thermal property with that wool insulation. It wicks moisture very well and dries quickly if it becomes wet. So it is a really nice natural insulation and, with that wool, it is naturally odor resistant as well.
We do have a waterproof, breathable liner in the glove that is 100 percent polyurethane, so you have got nice weather protection with the gloves as well. So they are going to keep your hands nice and dry which will help you to stay warmer.
There are a few features that I would like to mention on the gloves. Taking a look at the palm first we have a really nice leather palm. And it is reinforced in those areas where you need it. So in the area where you might be gripping an ice axe, a mountaineering axe or some other type of tool if you are working outdoors, you have got really nice reinforced leather palms there. On each of the fingertips the reinforcement actually comes up and around the backside as well, so each finger of the glove is also reinforced with that leather. So it is a nice supple leather. You still can manipulate the gloves as I mentioned, but it is a lot more durable and it is pretty grippy as well.
We have a nice cuff closure on the glove so you have got the Velcro hook and loop closure here, so you can ensure a proper fit. There is also a glove clip on the glove so you can clip them together pretty easily if you wanted to do so, if you are not wearing them. So it makes it nice to keep the gloves together.
You also have a soft nose wipe on each thumb of the glove, so right on the outside there is a bit of a softer fabric to use that nose wipe, so additional bonus there.
Ibex does recommend hand washing the gloves if you need to wash them or having them dry cleaned. So don’t throw them in the washer and dryer if you needed to give them a wash.
These gloves do have a regular fit so they are not a super tight glove, but they are not a really loose and bulky glove either. Got really easy to manipulate as I have mentioned a few times with that soft leather and that wool and soft shell blend. It is a really nice piece. It is good for colder days outdoors in the winter and just general all day winter wear. It is the Ibex Men’s Granite Mountain Glove.
