Named after the famous Wyoming-based mountain guiding company, Marmot's Exum gloves look understated and perform very well – just like a good mountain guide.
The classic brown leather outers come with a Marmot ‘Membrain’ waterproof/breathable insert and a lovely soft DriClime wicking lining which, combined with durable Thermo R Eco insulation which has a high warmth-to-weight ratio ensure you’re hands stay warm on the coldest of days.
Heavy wear areas are reinforced and the gloves come with an articulated design to improve dexterity.
You can keep the snow and rain out still further with an easy-pull drawcord cinch around the gauntlet-style cuffs, and you shouldn’t lose them as they come with a safety leash, although our only minor gripe was that this is just a tad fiddly to adjust – but not so much so that it put us off recommending the Exum, which we do most highly.
Indeed, the Exum is amongst our favourite bits of ski kit so far this winter.
