I want to love this company but I’m just left disappointed. These gloves are terrible at keeping your hands warm. Out today walking in the snow and sleet my hands were freezing. I made a fist and water started dripping from the gloves. I got my Goretex North face gloves and my hands were dry and warm. Don’t waste your hard earned money.

If you want to spend 130 bucks on gloves that will keep your hands COLD in the 40's and drizzle then look no further...these are the gloves for you! If you want your hands warm when it's below 50 then keep looking!

Durable, incredibly warm, high level of dexterity for a heavier glove and my travers gloves fit perfectly inside when I needed extra protection. Only things warmer are the GTX mitts.

Absolutely the worst, most disappointing gloves that I have used in 30 years of hunting. The Pittard's Oiltac leather extracts every iota of warmth out of my hands and makes my hands colder, not warmer. They might be okay to wear when the weather is warm, but they are terrible when temperatures are low. Even using them with a Sitka glove liner didn't help.

On the same hunting trip that I discovered how bad my Mountain gloves are, I met a guide who was outfitted all in Sitka gear who had tried his Mountain gloves for the first time on a 3 day backpacking hunt and like to froze his hands off. He couldn't stop talking about how bad his Mountain gloves were.

BTW, I am not a Sitka basher. I have other Sitka products, like the Jetstream jacket, that I love.

Really, these Mountain gloves are just a terrible, horrible product. Don't waste your money.

I love these so much I purchased a second pair.
More waterproof than actually rated, and fit is amazing.
Not one complaint.
They aren’t made to be super warm and they aren’t.
Get a thicker pair for that.
Love my Sitka gear!

The reviews on these gloves seem be either very very good or really poor. These gloves perform exceptionally during high exertion activity. I’ve used them to climb multiple 14000 ft peaks in Colorado and on a moose hunt in Alaska. I do not have one complaint. If you are at rest (sitting or standing) and the temperatures are in the 20’s or below, your hands will likely start to get cold, but these are not glassing gloves. I’ve used them in 10-50 mph wind conditions, even when temperatures were in the 20’s. My hands were perfectly warm and I did not feel a hint of the wind in these gloves, but I was also hiking and very active in these conditions. As is the case for all gear, these gloves are fit for purpose (purpose being high wind, high wind chill conditions while being physically active). I would consider these “mountain” gloves a must if you use them while traversing mountains. They live up to their name, and also, their dexterity and grip is outstanding.

I have owned these for two years and just sold them. They are the most disappointing piece of Sitka I owned. These gloves fit good and are made very well but they do NOT keep your hands warm or dry and that's why I bought them.

I had the predecessor to this glove and it was my go-to. I loved them. After several seasons the stitching on the glove pull just unraveled completely and started to separate. Sitka warrantied the old set and sent a new pair. This customer service and backing of their gear is enough to make me a lifelong consumer. Their gear is solid and they listen to input to further improve the line.

I have two years experience with this glove and it is good at stopping wind like is says in the description but when it comes to snow or rain my hands get wet. It’s not the warmest glove as well. I usually find myself wearing a thin liner-glove under the Sitka glove when the temps drop.

Not the best for an all around winter glove.

Reviewed On 01/08/2022

I have owned these gloves for about 2 years now, so I think this will be a good enough evaluation. I bought these gloves because of Sitka's reputation. I thought these would be the gloves I needed to keep my hands warm. The description says that it has a Gore-Tex lining and the gloves have a Gore-Tex tag on it, but in two years I'm failing to see what part is Gore-Tex insulated. I've worn these gloves in temperatures ranging from mid teens to upper 40's, in the rain and in the dry, and in windy conditions. There is one constant: they will not keep your hands warm. Plain and simple. The only thing between your hands and the outer lining is a thin piece of grid fleece. These gloves have zero wind blocking ability. My 5 year old UA early season gloves perform better than these. There is one positive though, the grip on these is fantastic, which represents the two star rating.

This is my personal experience and opinion. I would not recommend this product. I'm sure that Sitka jackets and bibs are phenomenal, but these gloves aren't it.

I want to like these gloves. They are very comfortable, well made and fit very well. I've had these gloves for more than 5 years.

The main issue I have with these gloves that I've never had with any other glove is that in cool to cold temperatures my hand feel very clammy and then get cold. As a result, I really only use them in warm temps or not at all. I am so disappointed by this because I really want them to work. Due to the clammy hands issue I hardly use them.

Over the years I have compared them to other similar gloves such and K*** glove and others that are waterproof and I don' t have this same clammy issue.

I'm not sure if it's the Windstopper fabric that is causing the issue, but my suggestion is to ditch the Windstopper fabric and make them waterproof instead. Perhaps this will cure the clammy hands issue.

Tough gloves for riding horses in the mountains but not waterproof. Not warm at all if below 40 and will get wet in the snow.

I was very satisfied with these gloves this past season. They kept my hands warm, love the grip that they have and the fact the clip together so I'm not sitting there digging around for a rouge glove when they are needed. I have no complaints and they will most definitely have this place in my bag this season as well.

These are my go to gloves when hiking in rocky terrain that is cold and rough. I like to walk with gloves in case I slip so that I don’t rip my hands up on the shale rock. These are great for just that. Keep you warm and tough enough to handle a beating.

These are great gloves and very warm despite what some of the other reviews mention. They are thin enough and dextrous enough to shoot with and yet warm and water resistant. I live and hunt in BC, Canada and recently used them in the rockies down to to about 10F. My hands were warm as long as the rest of me was warm. If you allow your core to get cold, then your hands and feet will follow no matter what you're wearing. I found them to be warmer than a pair of Arcteryx Gore Tex ice climbing gloves that I'd been using for hunting previously. Another bonus is that they are much easier than other gloves I've used to get on and off...something which you're doing constantly when you hunt.

I own two pairs of the mountain gloves. I have one pair for hunting and one pair for the rest of the year. I love these groves and the grip they provide is amazing. They are 5-stars because they do everything as advertised. I do however wish they had a set that were waterproof with regular gortex. Living in the Pacific Northwest it tends to rain a bit. The gloves as they are now do work fine in a little bit of rain and I have used them in snow as well. Overall I will always keep a set of these around.

I bought these gloves for elk hunting and I wear them when I ride my ATV to get to my hunting spots. The wind stopper liner really does the job while riding and helps hold in heat. I also wear them during my hunts and find they grip my rifles really well. Use the sizing chart to get the right size because proper fit matters and enhances performance. I have not had a chance to wear/use these gloves when wet but, they are holding up well to abrasions and normal wear & tear.

I am reading what some of the customers that bought these gloves and wear them in the conditions then say they aren’t warm. This is an AUTUMN glove.... not 20 degrees not 30 degrees and 40 degrees is good with now real wind or moisture. I really believe what ppl forgot about the season autumn..... it’s usually a warmer temp in the 40’s or 50’s. And lighter winds not from the north so much. I’m guessing it’s the new normal to think fall would be as cold as winter months nowadays

Hunted in dry/30 degree weather with the new 2019 Mountain Gloves, but found out quickly they did not keep my hands warm so went to my 20 year old backup, less bulky Cabelas Thinsulate/gortex gloves during my mule deer hunt in Eastern Washington. The Mountain Gloves leather palm material definitely grips while seemed to create rapid heat loss even when actively hiking. Apparently, the gloves are for warmer temperatures and offer wind protection while Sitka Customer Service recommends hand liners for cooler temperatures. All my other Sitka gear am completely satisfied with which is why I purchased the Mountain Gloves. Guess it's back to Cabelas to find some new gloves since the Sitka GTX Coldfront's are just too bulky as well.

My new favorite winter glove. Used them looking for wolves on snow machine today and the couldn’t be happier. Good wind resistance and pre flexed tigers for gripping handlebars or Binos all day long plus that leather palm is awesome and the perfect amount of grip. They are crazy comfortable and even those little pull tabs make life easier. I wouldn’t recommend them for cold weather but from 20d and above they are great out in the open wind.

I wear these when I ride my quad and they are incredible on my hands. No wind shear. Great dexterity and feel and the leather palm is the best I've ever experienced. Really love these gloves.
