The Marmot Basic Work Glove is a classic all leather glove from Marmot.The simple all leather design is highly durable and very dexterous, while the driclime lining gives excellent next to skin comfort.
The DriClime lining wicks moisture quickly away from your skin and also gives a reasonable level of insulation. The Leather keeps the elements out. This is a great glove for mild winter climbing and skiing at a great price.
I bought a pair since everyone seems to love theirs. I don't get the hype. They are ok, sizes run small though, and not optimal for my hands. The size that fits my hands best is M, but the gloves are so short that the elastic hem ends too low on my wrist. To be able to pull them high enough I would need L, but then the gloves are too lose.
I have had mine for 2 years now, and although they work just fine, the inner lining is worn out, and full of holes. It takes some fiddling around when putting the gloves on, since some fingers get stuck in the lining. And I have not even used them for any rope work, just civilian use while walking the dog, shoveling snow outside my house etc.So overall, I like my pair but I'm not very impressed by the quality.
They look really nice, though, and the price is right. Will probably just buy another pair!
