The most versatile gloves from the Fall/Winter 2018 Gear Guide.
A partially knit glove may not seem ideal for mountain weather, but the Camber stood up to everything we threw at it. What pushes the Camber over the top is Gordini’s Ergoknit, a polyester knit that covers the back of the wrist and fingers (the palm is goat leather). Combined with synthetic insulation, it was thick enough to keep us comfortable down to 15°F, but it also boosts breathability in warm temps. It helped our tester dump extra heat while spinning backcountry laps in Colorado’s Front Range, where the Camber also easily shrugged off slush (the knit has a DWR finish, and the glove has a waterproof liner). “This was my go-to glove for touring,” says our tester. “When I was working hard but still wanted a secure grip on my poles, that breathability was critical.”
“These gloves have one of the softest fleece linings I’ve ever felt,” one tester says. “Even over long days, I never wanted to take them off.”
