How do the kevgloves hold up to rope friction?

Oh, and a plug for the pmgear guys. Recently placed my first order with them. Price was right, goods are as described and arrived well ahead of expectations.
The kevlar covers the entire palm and fingers. Extremely durable for rope friction. Glad you liked our stuff. Thanx.

I have worn out a pair a Marmot gloves, but not sure of the model. They have a removable liner and go over the cuff (essential for powder and wind). They were never that warm on the fingertips though.

I just bought the Head gloves at Costco fror $15. I don't think the liner is removable, so I could see where they would get too hot in the spring. However, I will just my Marmot goretex shell (take out liner) for the spring when my finger don't need the extra warmth.

The real lesson here is buy your gear in the spring and don't wait until December when the prices are at the highest.

You're talking about the fleece ones with leather palm and thumb, right? I'm in total agreement. Unless you spend a lot of time with your gloves in the snow, these gloves rock. Haven't tried them when it's really cold, but they're way more comfortable than real dedicated ski gloves I've tried in the past.

I was up near Waterville, NH a couple of weeks ago and saw a pair of gloves from Smartwool. Can't remember the model name, but they felt pretty incredible. Very supple and extremely warm. They ran about $110.00. I just checked the website and they don't have them listed. If I ever see them again, I may not let them slip away...again.

I won't buy a pair of gloves without a wriststrap, this is the best feature ever invented, it allows you to take your gloves off and just let them dangle, knowing they're safe and sound. ie, on a chair or in a cafe etc.

I also like removable liners, I find my gloves do get a little sweaty so it's good to be able to take out the inners and dry, and then wash them when they get really rank. Also, on extreme days I slip handwarmers between the inners and the shell and my hands stay toasty all day.

My favourite pair are Levels, but I haven't seen them at all in the US.

I have the GoreTex ones that you mentioned, and really like them a lot. Two seasons of hard skiing/teaching and still look like new. May get a second just for swapping on the days that get really wet, but being able to pull the liners to dry is very useful.

I had that happen to me in the 70 degree temps in Tahoe last week. I ripped the plam clear off. I ended up sewing it back on though because I didn't want to use a brand new pair of North Face canyon gloves on the crappy mashed potatoes.
