Pros: Well built, just the right amount of warmth
Cons: Unisex sizing a little tough to figure out
For years, I looked for a lightweight, lightly insulated glove for those late-season days when a regular ski glove provides too much warmth. I tried products from a range of manufacturers. And in the end, the best I found comes from a big name in base layers, Smartwool.
The Smartwool Spring Gloves pack a bunch of cool features into a compact package. The fingers and palm are constructed from a waterproof leather. Water beads up and rolls right off. The company backs the thumb with suede (more comfortable for wiping your nose or the granola bar crumbs from the corners of your mouth). The back of the glove is stretch nylon for ease of movement. And the wrist panel wraps around your hand and uses hook and loop to cinch down tightly under the cuff of your jacket.
Overall, I'm really impressed with these Smartwool gloves. There's a more complete review and some pictures on my blog GearGuide.
