Received the gloves quickly. The quality and comfort of the gloves feel wonderful. Use the gloves to x-country ski and when cold. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Great All-Around Gloves
These have become my go-to gloves since purchasing them here. Because they are totally water-proof and warm down to temps in the hi 20s, these are my favorite gloves for fall & spring backpacking in the Sierras. Perfect protection for hiking in cold rain or wet snow. I also use my Epic gloves for snowshoeing & nordic skiing on cool, wet days. Typical Mountain Hardwear quality and durability, which makes the price well worth it. Nice fit and good dexterity too. Very versatile backcountry glove for mild-cold wet conditions!

Great lightweight glove
Though it hasn't been fully tested (in the backcountry), it did not disappoint during multiple snowball packings over the holidays. It is nearly a true to size fit, perhaps a tad small depending on the hand. I usually wear a large comfortably, but this is a little snug (which is ok for my purposes). A great lightweight waterproof glove - something I've never had until now.

Great water proof gloves
I needed waterproof gloves for wet, cool/cold, damp weather so I didn't want real thick "hot" gloves. These were perfect. Lightweight yet durable and pretty flexible. Size was accurate - I always wear a Large and these fit perfectly. For real cold weather you would need something warmer but if you need something for cool and wet, these are perfect - they kept my hands perfectly dry in a driving rain. I've always had good luck with Mountain Hard Wear. I'll keep buying their products.

Excellent LW Waterproof Gloves
The MH Epic gloves are the best lightweight (LW) waterproof breathable gloves I could find. They are not cheap, but they are excellent. I am surprised at how thin the gloves are, and I suspect I'll need a liner glove in colder conditions, but for my purposes (cold and wet weather biking and backpacking) that is better. I don't like a thick, insulated ski type glove for these purposes because I find it too difficult to hold poles, adjust layers, avoid overheating, grab rocks, etc. I compared these to the Rab Latok gloves, which I returned upon getting these. The Latok is a closer fitting glove more well suited to tool use and mountaineering. This glove seems like it will be more durable, though the fit is a bit looser and the palm is probably going to be less grippy. For a general outdoor use glove, I think these can't be beat if you require water and windproof. Big demerit though for no soft material on the thumb for a nosewipe.
