The Mountain Equipment Guide Glove is a waterproof glove that is warm and comfortable. A superb glove for all round use in the mountains whether you are climbing, ski touring or walking the fells. This glove is the workhorse of Mountain Equipments glove range providing superb performance.
Drilite Extreme is ME's own 3 layer membrane fabric similar to more well known branded membranes, but much better value. The Guide glove has leather palms for grip and durability with a pre curved shape and stretch fabric panels for superior comfort. The Mountain Equipment Guide Glove is a great all rounder.

Gloves from Mountain Equipment. This should basically say enough - these guys know how to make gloves you'll love and happily rely upon
These go in my 3 pair glove setup for winter hikes (others being ME touch grip and super alpines) and act as my if-everything-else-fails gloves. Last december I had the pleasure of -30 Celsius on Hardangervidda (Norway), followed by heavy winds, snow storms and rain at +2 Celsius. These are challenging conditions for any piece of gear and they kept me comfy and toasty, while still enabling me to tie/loosen knots and perform other tasks with the gloves still on. (please beware that I have warm hands, if you are not as lucky then you might need a warmer pair at -30C)
When you need to take them off, you'll be glad with the long elastic loops. Long elastics allow you to hold them under your armpits while still attached when you need to go for a pee. The cuff is easily closed and nicely long as well and the loop on the fingers allows you to hang them on a biner when you don't need them. Has a nice nose wipe and leather palm.
Finally, the price is a bargain for such a glove.
Outstanding product, 100% satisfied.
Superb - warm, dry & a flexible grip. Unbeatable value.
Great warm gloves that are true to size and with a decent size cuff. The cuff is easy to adjust but not quite big enough to fit over my Suunto core. Tested on top of Blencathra in howling freezing westerlies and had toasty warm hands; warmer than my Rab Latok gloves. (I suffer from bad circulation and cold hands too). Dextrous enough to undo zippers etc but as always, there will be a trade off between dexterity and warmth. A perfect balance for me at a great price and with a very hand wrist leash. Recommended!!
These gloves are great in all but extremely cold situations (I use a merino glove liner in those situations and it's still barely enough). The dexterity is preserved with them, they do not feel bulky at all. They provide loops so you can hang them from your hands when taking them out. These are my main gloves while being active as they are warm enough and very comfortable without sacrificing my dexterity.
I bought these gloves for skiing and all mountaineering use. The gloves work very well! After used in the snow with ski poles and ice axe at -4/-6 for all day, my hands were dry and hot. The palm and finger are reinforced with cowhide leather that make dexterous feel and abrasion resistance. Thank to the stretch insert the gloves have also a perfect fitting. They are very light, waterproof and warm thank to the internal fleece. I like too the soft nose wipe on thumb (not all gloves have it!). With a glove liner is excellent for winter too (ice climbing and north face). For me a perfect all round gloves! Excellent value for money! Only one thing: I would prefer a strap to customize the closure of the gloves at the wrist instead of stretch insert.. but it's only my idea.
I bought these from Facewest recently and they're excellent! What I like most is the reinforced palm and finger tips, as this is the area that typically wears out really quickly on previous gloves over the years. They have a fleecy lining inside which is very warm, for this country I really can't see anyone feeling the cold through these. My only bugbear is that they don't clip together when stored. Otherwise, an excellent glove, built like tanks and warm enough for even the coldest spells the UK has to offer!
