The Montane Prism gloves are super compressible which gives them a great packsize. The primaloft insulation is very warm, this is coupled with a microfleece lining that adds to the insulation value and deals with any sweat from your hands. Finish that off with a Pertex Microlight outer fabric that is windproof and water resistant.
These are great, protective, insulating gloves in a super packable and lightweight package.
The revolutionary Prism Gloves have a micro pack size and a superb warmth to weight ratio that has made them a best-seller. Featuring PrimaLoft® GOLD ECO Insulation they also have a PERTEX® windproof outer and a brushed microfleece lining. Ideal as multi use gloves that will live unnoticed in your pack or pocket and can easily be pulled on when needed.

Primaloft is considered to have the best warmth to weight ratio of any synthetic fibre, so why not make a glove which uses it for insulation but then has the lightest possible shell fabric to keep the whole product very lightweight indeed?
That's exactly what Montane have done, and the result is every bit as good as you would expect. these gloves are fabulously warm considering they weigh just 76g a pair. Feature-wise they're also a quality product with pre-curved fingers and roll over tips.
There was one disappointment however, the cuff is a bound hem and I found it quite tight - I have big hands and normally wear XL gloves, I could just about get these on, but when I did they were a perfect fit. A bit more 'give' at the wrist would make them perfect.
