Rated 2 out of 5 by Bramski from Like a marshmallow on your hand I'd owned 2 pairs of the predecessor to this glove, the Rambla. I work as an avalanche professional in British Columbia. So naturally when I wore holes in the leather of the Ramblas I bought two years ago I sought to replace them with this new version. The legend glove is almost identical except for the leather, which is far too soft for any serious backcountry user. Rather like a marshmallow in suppleness, it fails to actual be a working glove as the leather is so soft it sticks and doesn't have enough form of it's own to actual be an effective glove given the primaloft insulation behind the leather. Please use a leather with more form BD. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the prior leather you were using.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jonathan from Warm and light weight I've been using the Guide gloves for years, and after testing the Legend I'd recommend sticking with the Guide. I wanted to try the lighter weight Legend glove to see if the dexterity was noticeably better and if it still offered adequate warmth. The Legend gloves do both, the dexterity is slightly better and they are plenty warm. However, the downsides for me are the fleece interior lining and the short cuff. The fleece lining pulls out from it's natural position and bunches up making it slow to align the next time you put it on. Also the longer cuff, on the guide and others, in my opinion is much easier to slide on and create a solid snow barrier quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPSF from Top notch glove This is one of the best gloves I own. Great for cold, wet conditions. At the resort or in the backcountry you can't go wrong with this piece of equipment. Suggestion: add a small cuff loop to pull glove on and to hang for drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul from pros and cons Just bought these to replace a lost pair of Patrol gloves, which I liked quite a bit but found they weren't quite warm enough in temps below 10 degrees. The Legends are noticeably warmer, however, I have to agree with the previous reviewer regarding the leather and feel. They are soft and a bit sticky so you definitely sacrifice some dexterity from the Patrol. The Patrol leather on this glove would be ideal. For now, choose what is most important I suppose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul from Excellent all around cold weather glove I have only used this glove for 2 back country trips, but they were long days in snow and ice with axe & rope handling required. The fit and construction is great and although it was only about 20 out, my hands were very warm all day even when we were sitting around waiting for other teams ;-) I recommend these gloves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Older ski bum from Too small I returned b/c the finger length & diameter were so tight. According to “fit” guide the Large should have been the correct size. I then ordered the XL, that fit my fingers lengthy wise but not in diameter. I didn’t think my fingers are pudgy but maybe they area. Customer service was spectacular.
