Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I own several bits of Simond gear so when the Cascade gloves were released I was keen to give them a go. I've used them whilst walking on an Iclandic glacier and caving in the Peak District - completely waterproof with enough wrist protection. The elastic wrist straps are great and the pull on loops and very useful and sturdier than they feel. Obviously not as warm and a more expensive glove so would suggest a liner for very cold conditions, but will be keeping these as my back up gloves for winter climbing and a great glove for the price.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I brought these gloves on the basis that they where cheap and intended them as a backup pair to my usual "expensive" gloves. Having spent a week Ice climbing using them I found them warm, dry and an excellent glove. Both for rope work, handling ice axes as well a placing Ice screws. I will continue to use them back home as a general mountaineering glove. For the Price and functionality I don't think you will find better.
Designed for winter climbing elves...?

Used for 1 week or less
These aren't available in my local store, so had to be bought online. I tried other gloves in store, and decided a M or L might fit, so I ordered both.

Sadly, neither size fit my hands; the body and the fingers were too tight in both M and L, and the fingers were too long. Gloves that are too tight restrict circulation and mean cold fingers, and if your fingers don't reach the tips of the glove fingers, your hands aren't dextrous when placing climbing protection, or simply doing up zips. I don't have big hands or thick fingers.

It's a shame, because the design concept and materials seem good, but gloves have to fit, how shall we say, like a glove, and these don't.

If you have slender, elf-like hands and long fingers, then these gloves might fit you and be perfect, and be great value for money.

I have returned both pairs without using them, so this review is based on the design, materials, build and fit only, not on how they behave in use. I will still recommend them, with the caveat about fit; buy them, try the fit, and return if they don't fit. If they were stocked in store, this would be so much easier...
Nice materials, well-made, and good design concept
Simply did not fit my hands.
Not mountain gloves . Used them on Kili last year
Used for 3 to 6 months

Ok for low altitudes
My hands were cold . Even with silk inner gloves
