Mountain Equipment's Super Alpine Gloves are a versatile glove built around dexterity and grip. A micro fleece lining adds some warmth. The Pontetorto softshell fabric makes the gloves wind proof and highly water resistant. The gloves aren't in the gauntlet category but extend further along the wrist than other gloves in the Mountain Equipment range such as the very similar Terra glove
The fingers and palm are covered in super grippy Oiltac leather to help you keep hold of your trekking poles, ice axes or rock in wet and cold conditions. If you need to be fiddling about with straps, carabiners and the like when out and about the Super Alpine gloves are a great option. There are not the warmest gloves so you need other options for when the its really cold.
