Gladedood reminded me of this in another thread. This are the most bomber, warmest, leather palmed glove I've ever dealt with and they are only $40 bones.

Did you handle a lot of rope during those days?

The permanent liner equiped gloves usually suck in terms of breathability and drying after getting wet.
I have a pair of Lowe Alpine gloves that have a thick removable fleece glove inside. But the glove was still equiped with a thin fleece that was permanently attached. With a knife I removed the fleece liner so that only thing remaining was the shellpart itself.
Off course it stings in the sould to demolish a pair of new gloves, but at least now they breathe reasonbly well, and on multi day trips, you have a remote chance to get them dry during the trip.
Would prolly work for those too, but you would have to be a ruthless bastard to be able to cut your new gloves...

I got a pair of these early last season. They are essentially the same thing as the Marmot Ultimate Ski Glove at 1/3 the cost. I had those gloves for 4 or 5 seasons and they did well. I think the Pinnacles might be a bit tougher. As long as I take them out of the gear bag they will be dry by morning. Iím a fairly sweaty guy and my hands donít sweat in these unless itís above about 35. And my hands donít get cold when itís 10 below and/or when the wind is blowing at 50 mph. At 40 bones you can still buy a $50 dollar pair of spring gloves and have all your bases covered.

Just received this pair of gloves in the mail today. Thanks for the recommendation guys. Of course, haven't used them yet, but they feel fucking awesome. Only $40 - can't believe it. Glad I didn't shell out the $100 for the Marmot Randonee Glove.

In general Cabela's stuff kicks serious arse, it's made for people who beat the crap out their gear and don't have 150 bucks laying around for a pair of warm gloves. Now if only they made more technical ski gear, I'd be set. Although they do have those wool bibs and jacket that are Gore tex lined, hmmm.....

nice I lost my gloves last season (think I drove away with them on top of the car- doh!), so it was straight up mittens until the spring when it was some light totally non-waterproof gloves that would get soaked when I picked up my slushy skis. My hands get cold really easily so good gloves are key- $40 is not too unreasonable

why is this here?
Just in case the gloves end up hurting someone.
