Rated 3 out of 5 by tg1390 from Ok gloves, could be designed a bit better My first softshell gloves. Great on warm days but for anything lower than -15 I find them excessively cold. It seems that the phone control stitching on the index and thumb is of a material that seems to get colder than the rest of the gloves. They fit a bit loose, which is ok in general... but makes using my phone with them difficult. Overall I think these are close to being great gloves... but needs some more testing and development before they're there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from Fits a niche in my glove shelf I've already used these quite a bit here in the northern rockies. Have become my go to hiking, in near freezing temps, gloves. I like this weight for skinning up when it's not too cold and I'm generating some heat. Fabric seems like they will wear well as I grip poles. Size worked well the the fit chart. I found they didn't work as well as an around town glove as they slip on steering wheels and door knobs. That's not what I got them for, they'll be in my pack and on my hands doing backcountry trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Turner from Great lightweight gloves These gloves are awesome for booting of lines on those spring mornings where it is hot out but not quite enough for bare skin. Also, the screen tap actually works which is great for taking pictures in exposed spots. Highly recommend this glove!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bellio from Okay I got these for morning runs. I like the fabric--it blocks the wind and still breathes a little. I used the sizing guide and ordered a men's small. They fit my hands, but the stitching where the cuff meets the softshel material is way too small of a diameter and does not stretch. Theses are basically unusable and

Rated 3 out of 5 by Charose from Get the job done These are good for keeping in my coat pockets for whenever I need them. They block the wind and insulate enough. If it’s really cold, they aren’t bulky so I can always slip my gloves hands into my coat pockets. My main criticism is the finger tips that have material suitable for touch screen use are a little stiff and should have more coverage of the material. Sometimes I struggle to use the finger tips on my phone and especially on my Apple Watch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamal from Nice and nimble Good weatherproof/windproof glove when not worried about cold temps. I use these primarily for ski touring, mainly on the way up. Decent fit, but IMO no BD gloves fit all that great

Rated 4 out of 5 by steelcranium from Nice glove Lightweight and dexterous, these softshell gloves keep wind off hands and therefore help keep them warmer, longer. Nice material. Good fit through fingers, however the cut is a little roomy at the wrist.
