Great Lightweight Gloves!

I picked up my first pair of gloves integrated with Pittards Leather in 2015 and they are still going strong into the 2017 season and I expect they will last several more seasons with no problem.

The leather Pittards uses is simply some of the softest, most durable leather I have ever had.

These Marmot XT gloves are well made, using very high-quality materials, and stitching and I can't wait to ride down a few thousand feet wearing them!

I adore the Marmot Basic Work Glove and go through at least one pair every season, always wear holes in just the left-hand fingertips, but I literally fell, buck, cut and split ten+ cords of wood per season wearing them.

While I only just got these XT's they seem to be about as warm as their cousins the Marmot Basic Work Glove which keep me comfortable down to about 25 degrees if I have my heart rate up and consistently moving. I would not wear these for lighter activities or long downhill descents in temps lower than 35 but my hands get cold easily!

I have thick hands with average length fingers and usually wear a large in gloves but I see these gloves more like running, or climbing shoes where a tight fit is really important and the mediums are snug on me but with the Pittards leather they conformed to the shape of my hand in just a few hours of wear so they work a size down for me.

Great find for the price! Marmot and Pittards is a combo you can not go wrong with!
