For yard or trail time, this traditional all leather glove, lined with moisture-wicking DriClime is comfortable and sturdy. Precurved Falcon Grip provides improved dexterity.
This traditional all-leather work glove, from technical outerwear maker Marmot, offers more than meets the eye -- and more than you'll find in most basic gloves at your local home improvement warehouse. Its comfortable, sturdy leather outer is lined with moisture-wicking DriClime material, and a pre-curved Falcon Grip allows for improved dexterity. The lightweight gloves weigh just 5.2 ounces (for a size large), as well.
Moisture Management Technology is a family of uniquely plaited bi-component knit fabrics engineered to mechanically draw moisture away from your skin to keep you dry, warm, and comfortable. The key to DriClime is three-dimensional wicking. As moisture moves from the inner fabric touching your skin to the outer fabric, it spreads out across the outer fabric to speed the drying process. DriClime continually passes moisture through to the outer surface for fast evaporation, and is not a finish that washes or wears out -- it works forever.
Marmot products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau ice fields for a Glaciology school project. This was where the idea of Marmot, originally a collegiate climbing club, began. Reynolds and Huntley soon began making prototypes of down products such as vests and sleeping bags in their dorm room in Santa Cruz. By the spring of 1973, Reynolds and Huntley partnered with fellow climber Tom Boyce to open a modest rental and retail location, named Marmot Mountain Works, in a 100-year-old building in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Their first large order was for 108, as the producer called them, ""very puffy jackets"" for the movie The Eiger Sanction, with Clint Eastwood, which helped make down outerwear fashionable. In 1976, Marmot was one of the first companies to recognize the value of a new technology being developed by W.L. Gore & Associates. Marmot was soon producing waterproof Gore-Tex sleeping bags, with Reynolds and Huntley testing early prototypes by sleeping in meat lockers and under fire sprinklers, and later introduced the waterproof/breathable fabric into nearly all Marmot products.
From humble beginnings, Marmot and its product line have grown over the years, and today the company is headquartered in Rohnert Park, California, with offices all over the world and distribution in more than 60 countries.

I bought these because of the review by lkd02445 saying how puncture resistant they are and also because they came up when I searched for pigskin gloves. Read morePublished 1 month ago by bookworm
