Review of the Mountain Equipment 'Mountain' Glove.

 

When I had these gloves, I had to compare them with the 'Marmot Glade Glove', and although both hold the same sort of technologies regarding waterproof membranes, and build materials, they feel different.

The glove actually feels more snug than the Marmot, and I felt that my fingers were easier to move around, allowing for a firmer grip on my flask whilst outside in the cold.
Obviously M.E have been the trusted choice of many an adventurer for many years, and they still have the command of the market too, so this comparison would really come down to personal preference between the two brands....I would assume that most people would choose M.E as they have the outstanding reputation, but Marmot are also up there in the rankings.

At £35 they are great value for money and you will know your buying great equipment too.

SUMMARY:

Sporting a cosy knitted wrist cuff and fleece lining, the Mountain Glove is a dependable glove for damp, cold and wet winter days and perfect for the occasional winter walker or skier.
