The Windstopper Convertible Glove is a great option for those of you who want the warmth and protection of Gore Windstopper fabric but also want the freedom to be able to complete jobs with fingerless mitts.
Perfect for the all-season mountaineer, a unique magnetic closure allows this warm mitten to convert to a lightweight fingerless glove in seconds. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® fleece keeps digits warm, and the mitten covering the fingers folds back to allow the tactility necessary for climbing.
Marmot's Windstopper Convertible Glove is definitely more mitt than it is glove. However, once you move past that, you will find that these are really comfortable and super practical mitts that are perfect for working outdoors, climbing, completing tasks around camp or just day-to-day use.
The fingers and thumb covers are quick and easy to put over or peel back giving you easy access. The covers are held in place using discreet magnets which lock them out of the way so you don't need to think about them. There is some additional grip provided in the material used on the palms but this does not extend to the fingers
