These are comfortable gloves!
Cons: I thought they came up slightly smaller on me than I expected. (when they stretch, they will be perfect).
Pros: The externally stitched seams were not a problem (I had been slightly concerned they would get caught in carabiner gates - not the case at all). The palms are very pliable and grippy (Some sort of modified pig skin). Cuffs are long enough to completely cover wrists. Not bulky at all, but are quite warm & breathable. Nose wipe is soft & in the right place. Wrist closures are good. They don't get pulled inside out, when you take them off. (Don't know if they would be shower-proof - it never rained)
I used the gloves for ski touring and mountaineering. They were good for when it was cold, given I was working hard skinning etc. I think these gloves would be fine for ice climbing but you'd probably want some over-mitts when at a belay. I think they would be good for alpine climbing.
I purchased this product for use in cold wet typical British conditions working with ropes and metal work. They have already provided hours of warm and dry hands still providing great dexterity and feel in your hands to tie knots and perform other such tasks. The thin glove can sometimes be a little cold but only when been worn for hours on end.
I purchased a pair of these gloves 3 years ago. Since then I used them for almost everything ranging from summer alpine mountaineering, rock climbing and simple hiking. I have to say these gloves are fantastic, perfect jack of all trades. They are very dexterous: I can handle not only the climbing hardware and tie knots in them, but also operate my DSLR camera.
Being softshell, they are not waterproof, but remain warm when wet, and that is a very important property! A minor negative comment: the palm-side seams are outwards, and they can be caught by fences, via ferrata cables or biner clips. Nowadays there is at least one competitor brand with absolutely similar gloves that have these seams inwards.
I bought these for winter climbing and I've used them both leashed and leashless in mostly dry, cold conditions. Fit, dexterity and grip are brilliant. I've not had problems with cold hands, although I tend to stick my gloves inside my jacket on belays. I've knocked a star off for the lack of a waterproof version for wet conditions (I've just bought some ME Cascade Xtrafits to try but if there was an Xtrafit version of the Marmot XT it would have been a no brainer!). I've also used them for spring skiing - comfy, breathable, great grip.
