This Just in: New Gloves Warmer than Old

Our cutting-edge research team has just confirmed new gloves are indeed warmer than old ones. With morning temperatures hovering around 9° during my Colorado tour, my ancient Marker racing gloves weren't up to snuff anymore.

I decided to try Marmot's Randonnee glove. The Randonnee is simple, comfortable, and warm, with a waterproof Gore-Tex XCR insert. I wore them through several intense blizzards, and was quite pleased with their performance.

I'll put up a review of these toward the end of the season, after I've gotten to know them better.

About SierraDescents

When there is snow, SierraDescents is Andy Lewicky's California backcountry skiing and mountaineering website. Without snow, sierradescents becomes an ill-tempered hiking and climbing blog.

Pray for snow.
