Perfect for the all-season mountaineer, a unique magnetic closure allows this warm mitten to convert to a lightweight fingerless glove in seconds. The GORE WINDSTOPPER fleece keeps digits warm, and the mitten covering the fingers folds back to allow the tactility necessary for climbing.
These lightweight performance fleece gloves have a thin, technical Windstopper membrane to protect your hands from the chill of breezy conditions while also letting perspiration escape. Remarkably warm for their weight, the gloves feature a unique magnetic closure that allows the warm mitten to convert to a lightweight fingerless glove in seconds, as well as leather reinforcement on the fingertips and palm, for improved grip and dexterity.
Gore Windstopper Material
Marmot's technical garments featuring Gore Windstopper material offer total windproof performance with excellent breathability, combining the comfort of a soft mid-layer and the water resistance of a shell in one garment. This line of apparel keeps you comfortable and provides the freedom of movement for enhanced performance in a wide range of activities and weather conditions.
Constructed of soft, quiet, stretchy fabrics, Windstopper protects your body’s warmth from the chilling effects of wind and weather, and prevents overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape. With this three-layer construction, Windstopper membrane is bonded between a high performance fabric on one side and quick-drying polyester fleece on the other. A durable water repellent finish offers additional weather protection.
Designed for an active fit, Windstopper garments perform well in outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, cycling, hunting, mountain sports, skiing, snowboarding, and trekking in the wind, snow, and rain.
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.

UPDATE..!! Picture shown by the seller is misleading. These gloves DO NOT HAVE a string or a hook to make the switch from fingerless to mittens. Thread is still coming off from the fingerless part after few tries and is not even winter.
These gloves are really wind stopping. They are super warm, the magnetic hold on the mitten top is super convenient because you can just flip the top back, and the magnet makes it stick and it stays out of your way. These are made out of high quality, long lasting materials, and I have been machine washing mine, and they remain as effective as ever. I plan to buy more of these when they are available on Amazon.
1. The material quality is great and is very well made
2. Having the option to remove the fingertip covers is A MUST in today's age with touchscreen devices
3. The magnet to hold the finger part back is so much better than the normal Velcro most have
4. The material is very durable and warm as well as the leather material on the palm side
5. They don't seem to attract fuzz or lint balls like a lot of my other gloves did
6. The threading is solid and doesn't fray at all
0. Don't really have any...honestly...I'll edit my review if anything comes up
I found a comprehensive size chart on the Marmot site to make sure the gloves fit snugly, to maintain as much dexterity as possible--but ordered from Amazon.
I suppose an electrostatic thumb (to allow for thumb use of a smart phone) would make these the best gloves I could imagine...but, still a 5 star purchase IMO.
