Nice pair of waterproof gloves. These have a special coating to repel water. I use these for snowboarding as well during March and April (when it gets a little warm).
I have genuinely loved every Simond product I have bought (with this single exception). I really wish that I had bought the Cascade gloves rather than these gloves.
On a cold autumn day with temperatures ranging from around 5oC at the foot of the hill to temperatures hovering around 1oC at the summits, I really struggled in these gloves - numb fingers and that horrid pain as the fingers regain some circulation.
Waterproof - YES! Good dexterity on a long scramble - YES! But add in the windchill at the summit and these gloves were next to useless.
Really wish I had paid the extra and bought the Cascade gloves as I now need to buy new winter gloves anyway.
Waterproof and good deterity
Oh so cold, even on an autumn climb in the UK!
Thanks for your feedback on the Simond Sprint gloves, I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the insulation. I shall pass on your comments to the product manager. If you are still looking to purchase the Cascade gloves, please visit one of our stores where a team member can find a suitable solution for you.Chris Allen UK Market Manager DECATHLON
