Mountain Equipment Leather Guide Glove Reviews

General comments: I have always tended to go for men's gloves as i find they fit my hands somewhat better that women'd specific versions. I bought these gloves in 2004 and although they have only been used a few months of the year, they have impressed no end. I used to wear Mountain Hardwear 'Exposure 2' gloves until i lost them in N.wales (anyone got them??) and the thing i loved most about those, the Pittards' leather is used on these gloves. Pittards leather must be the toughest and nicest feeling leather currently on the market, it just feels so nice. On these gloves it is used most extensivly that on the MH gloves, covering not only the palm but over the fingers aswell. There is a 'snot-wipe' area on the thumb for that inevitable runny winter nose. the wrist closure is elastic with a drawcord closure at the cuffs. this provides a good fit over the hands and is also a good size. ( My mountain Hardwear gloves were a 'gauntlet' style which i not prefer less than the shorter Guide Glove)
In the field they work splendidly, the insulation is good (polaloft) although i must admit i prefer primaloft insulation for its 'down' like feel. The gloves, although not having a gore-tex or similar liner, are totally waterproof. The dexterity offered by the glove is good although whatever winter gloves you have on, you can never really get to grips (pun!) with your compass dial....
A very good glove and fully recommended. Should last many seasons but can someone tell me what the small bit of elastic on the wedding finger is for???
Pros: great glove, waterpoofness, insulation, Pittards leather

General comments: Delightfully warm glove manufactured from leather so soft it feels like it has been made out of baby seals (which i certainly hope it hasn't). The wrist tightening mechanism is easy to operate both tightening and loosening, even when hands are gloved. Not sure if it's due to the leather, but the gloves seem to allow a remarkable degree of dexterity and feeling despite their thickness.
Pros: Warm. Dextrous to a level beyond their thickness.
Cons: Cause an unnecessary amount of conversation, even with random strangers on the hill, regarding the mysterious purpose of the piece of tape on the ring finger of each hand (as mentioned by previous reviewer).
