The Mountain Equipment Randonee Glove is a super durable and protective gloves for use in really harsh conditions whether you're climbing or skiing. The Exolite 210 stretch softshell fabric will shed snow and light rain, while the Pittards Amortan leather palm provides an excellent grip and a very durable surface for holding axes or poles.
Inside, the luxurious fibre pile lining is warm and quick drying ensuring all day comfort and reducing slippage on ice tools. They also feature Mountain Equipment's climbing fit which has been specifically designed for dexterity when winter climbing. They also feature an adjustable wrist closure for an under jacket fit as well as carabiner carry loops.

These gloves have been a revelation, they're highly breathable and very dexterous. I normally suffer from damp leading to cold hands and have not suffered any such issues with these gloves. If they do get soaked they still offer reasonable warmth and are easy to take on and off.
I've used them for resort skiing and found the comfortable temperature range to be -10°C - 0°C. I've been able to manipulate zips, clips, toggles and even eat a packed lunch with the gloves on thanks to the excellent dexterity offered. This more than compensates for the lack of wrist leash which is normally a must for my ski gloves.
A note to would-be buyers, the gloves may feel tight at first but the lining will pack down slightly and conform to your hand giving a very good fit.
After years of buying expensive gloves and being eternally disappointed the holy grail has been discovered !!!! Warm, breathable,dexterous and weather resistant . Mountaineering, skiing or whatever your bag these gloves will do the business.
I bought these gloves primarily for a skiing trip but I can see them being my 'go to' winter glove from now on. Very warm and, most importantly, breathable, they kept my hands dry and comfortable when everyone else with me who had Goretex lined gloves were complaining about them being sweat soaked at the end of every day. It really would need to be raining very heavily before I'd prefer to be wearing 'waterproof' gloves.
I've only used them for 6 consecutive days so it's too early to comment on longevity but they certainly feel well made and the leather feels supple and high quality.
This is my second pair of randonee gloves. They are basically the best all round glove i have used, my last pair lasted 4 years with almost 200 days of skiing and a little ice climbing thrown in. The fibre pile liner makes them easy to get on when your hands are wet, they dry out rapidly and in the real world keep your hands dryer than any Goretex lined glove due to the breathability of them. I just hope that ME never stop making this workhorse.
