Mammut Magic High GTX Boot - Men's
Forget about the treeline—the Mammut Men's Magic High GTX Boot will take you above the clouds. This crampon-compatible alpine boot offers the support and weather protection needed for ascents into the alpine, all in a lightweight and comfortable package.
Base Fit 2.0 technology provides greater heel support for a more precise feel, less fatigue, and reduced blistering. Gore-Tex keeps you foot dry without suffocating it, while the EVA and PU midsole cushions your step as you cross jagged terrain and provides rebound to propel you forward. Memory foam at the instep, shin, and ankles eases strain and fatigue at common pressure points, and returns to its original shape after being subjected to heavy loads.
La Sportiva Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's
The La Sportiva Men's Nepal Cube GTX Mountaineering Boot isn't just for the high-minded alpine adventurers amongst us. New this season, the Nepal Cube takes a lighter approach to versatile warmth in a mountaineering boot than its older sibling, the Nepal Evo GTX. While both boots use Gore-Tex to guarantee your foot's dry ride, the Cube loses a full four ounces without taking away any warmth or capability. Whether you're summiting the Grand (Teton, that is), performing telecom magic in the middle of winter, or trekking high and low over many miles, this leather boot gives you a dry and flexible ride.
Rugged Idro-Perwanger leather gets shot full of 3.2mm silicone to create a robustly water-resistant and flexible outer. An air-injected rubber rand creates a durable connection between the top and bottom of this technical boot. Laces tease your toes and weave their way up the boot through locking D rings to help the boot keep a firm grip on your foot. The Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort lining does more than guarantee waterproof and breathable kicking; it adds heat to your hoofers so hiking across snow-covered flats doesn't turn your toes into icicles. In addition, the 4mm Carbon Tech honeycomb footbed uses air to further insulate your foot without adding weight to keep you high-stepping for hours on end.
This tongue lets fresh air refresh your ankles while giving you the option to customize the boot fit with a removable piece. The 3D Flex tech improves your stability over contorted terrain. The graded polyurethane midsole starts at a whopping 2mm thick in the heel and tapers into a whisper of plastic by the time it reaches your toes. The Impact Brake System turns hard-wearing Vibram into directionally opposed lugs to give your footsteps traction on the way up and the way down.
Marmot Ultimate Ski Glove - Men's
Marmot designed the Ultimate Ski Glove for the most epic of ski days, from days where the falling snow blocks all visibility to freezing cold bluebird days. Your hands will stay comfortable all day with a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex insert keeping them dry, and Primaloft Gold insulation keeping them warm, even if you manage to get snow past the drawcord cuff. Constructed to stand up to professional-level use, the face fabric is reinforced with cowhide leather in the most vulnerable areas. Marmot included a DriClime lining to wick sweat away from your palms while you give yourself a pep talk at the top of that 50-degree couloir.
Well it's February the 3rd and the ground has been dry for over a month. Probably like six weeks and if you like. Outdoor activities like cell billing and. Stuff like that it really sucks it's. Been a pretty horrible winter for southern Ontario but i always like to look on the bright side of things and the one good thing about it is that there's been a lot of good sales on their clothing in toronto recently so i. Decided to pick up a couple pair of. Gloves that I've had my eye on the last couple years but i haven't been able to decide which one to choose well since. They both came on sale i thought why not get both and run a little comparison. Video so this is going to be my initial. Impressions or first impressions of the marmot ultimate ski glove versus the. Black diamond guide glove and maybe in a. Couple years after i use them for a while i have an update video to see which one actually works better maybe I'll even try wearing one on one hand and one on the other at the same time to. See which i like better but yeah so this. Is gonna be a initial comparison video just to kind of give you guys an idea so. In terms of what comes with the gloves they basically come with the same thing except the black diamond guide gloves. Come with nick wax weatherproofing for. Leather so that's a little bit of an bonus you know it's definitely important to add this nick's nick wax. Leather weather proofing just to make your leather that much extra waterproof. Now if it doesn't come with it like these marmot gloves did not you can of course buy it separately this was ten. Bucks from mountain equipment co-op or your local outdoor store otherwise these. Gloves are pretty identical as you can. See one big difference that you can see. Right off the bat is that the marmot. Gloves come with what's called gore-tex. Active and the black diamond guy gloves. Come with gore-tex warm. Just a quick google search these two. Types of technology are very similar but. It's quite apparent that the warm. Technology is just like the name implies you know better for very warm conditions. The gore-tex active is also good for. Cold weather conditions but again the. Warm designation implies and shows that. It's ideal for very cool temperatures. Let's check out how the gloves compare against each other in terms of weeks so. For the marmot ultimate ski glove both extra-large gloves are coming in at it. 257 grams that's pretty close if not. Exactly what their claimed weight is claims weight of 8.8 ounces 258 grams. Equals 9.1 ounces so that's pretty much. Spot-on again to account for the. Extra-large size compared to the large. Size that they have on the website so let's see what the black diamonds weigh now black diamonds are quite a bit more they weigh in at 365 grams so over 100. Grams more and for those who want to see. It an imperial. Twelve point eight ounces so if weight. Is a huge concern the black diamond. Patrol gloves are sorry the black diamond guide gloves are significantly heavier perhaps the biggest difference. And one that might not be obvious at. First glance is that the black diamond gloves come with a removable insert so. This insert here is removable whereas. The marmot you cannot remove that insert. So I'm not really sure how that's going. To affect things over time it might be nice to be able to remove the insert to wash it i guess but yeah that is the one. Major difference in terms of sizing. You're supposed to measure your hand. Like such here my hand size is 9 inches. So i ordered an extra large based on. That measurements for from both manufacturers and it's clear that the. Black diamond glove does fit tighter than the marmot so the extra large black. Diamond is nice and snug on me i. Wouldn't want it much snugger than that. So the extra large is pretty much the. Perfect size whereas the marmot the. Extra large gives me a bit more room. Inside the glove i could probably squeeze in a riding glove or another. Shell of a glove inside for very cold. Conditions. Now the marmot gloves have these ripples. In the knuckles that is supposed to add a little bit of dexterity you can as well. See that a few other small differences the black diamond guide glove has. Leather surrounding the entire thumb whereas the back of the thumb on the marmot glove is cloth. Similarly, in between the fingers and the. Black diamond glove is nylon cloth whereas on the marmot it's leather so. It'll be interesting to see which wears out first based on the type of. Conditions i use these gloves for i quite often find myself yanking on. Things pulling on rope helping people. Get out of stuck situations on their. Snow belt pulling on winch cable so you. No I've often seen my snow moves tear. Around the palms and in the finger between the fingers where i could grab onto things, so we'll see which one stand. The test of time both gloves have adjustable draw cord cuffs that are both. Easy to use with your gloved hand it's. Just a matter of pulling the one chord. To cinch them up and I'm pulling the. Other end of the cord to loosen them back up again same with the marmots. Slightly different style but just as. Good one cord cinch this them up the red. Cord releases it so my only hope now is. To actually get enough snow to put these gloves to use I'm not holding my breath. That's for sure and doesn't look like jasper's either but i guess as soon as. The snow goes away at least we know atving in dirt biking again and for those cold early spring rides your atv. In the dirt biking i expect these gloves will work well for that as well I'll keep you posted an update video will follow in a couple years.

So we've got a whole new fit system here. At the north face called five dimensional fit, and we've borrowed what we've learned from footwear which is you've got to measure the interior volume of the glove and go outward from there when you're adjusting for size, but we've got a whole new system for grading. Size on gloves it's called five dimensional fits and it ensures that if. You're a large in a technical mountaineering glove like this you'll be a large in a stretchy fleece glove for. An entirely different end use, so we've also employed some pretty sophisticated new construction solutions one of them. Which is called radiometric articulation. Basically that mouthful means that we've. Cut the glove in such a way that you end. Up with that a nice natural curve built. Into the glove so that your hand isn't fighting a flat glove to relax we've. Built our gloves with a warm warmer the warmest sensibility and you'll see actually on the hang tags at retail. You'll see snowflakes and now one snowflake is warm two snowflakes is warmer and three snowflakes is warmest as it needs to convey the message that out you know in the case of the kelvin here we've built it to be the warmest possible globe that we can build with 8 ounces of frame loft on the back of hand. And 4 ounces of primo loft on the front of hand this is as warm as we can build a mountaineering glove and still maintain the kind of dexterity that this users gonna need.
