Rab Vapour Rise Gloves are a light and breathable softshell gloves that use Vapour-rise technology, making them ideal for use in all but really cold conditions. Constructed from Pertex Equilibrium with a DWR coating, making the gloves durable, light, weather resistant and also very breathable. Inside a micro-fleece lining provides a degree of insulation along with very fast wicking properties. This combination makes the Vapour Rise Glove perfect for the active user, ideal as a ski-touring glove in milder conditions or as a good mountain walking glove.
The palm features Pittards Armortan leather, this enables you to maintain a really firm grip of your poles or axes. Pre-curved boxwall finger construction improves the gloves dexterity. The adjustable hook and loop cuff ensures a secure fit preventing unwanted snow and ice from getting in. The loop on the middle finger allows them to be hung from a pack or harness, keeping the insides dry and preventing you from dropping or losing them.

Fantastic glove for ski touring. Not 'very' warm so have a OR shell mitten that I put over them in cold weather or if carrying axe in cold weather. Recent 8 days touring in good weather meant they were sufficient for 90% of time, particularly when working uphill.
Very dextrous - no problems making transitions with skins on/off or doing boots up. Appear to have moulded to my hands very quickly.
This is an excellent softshell glove for intense activity in the cold, like ski touring which is what I bought them for. The palms are covered in leather, making it much more resistant - I had several softshell gloves that pretty much disintegrated after afew trips - ski touring is hard on gloves, there is a lot of friction from poles, then you have to manage equipment like crampons, maybe climb, etc. A simple softshell glove will not last. I liked them so much that I bought one more pair for my wife.
Make sure you don't rely on these in non-active cold weather, this is NOT a warm glove - I wore them in +2C just sitting around and I could feel the cold, they're not for that.
This appears to be a lightweight, warm and hard-wearing glove that will be ideal for a variety of activities in anything but sub-zero temperatures. Recommended.
