Extremities Multisport 2009

The Extremities Multisport is an amazing glove that benefits from a very close fit and exceptional dexterity. The key is the stress material on the back coupled with a Gore-Tex XCR lining. There’s also a leather palm that is ideal for extra durability. The simple design means you can slip these on and just get on with the walk while being able to operate zips and compasses easily without having to take them off. The close fit of the wrist and cuff fits snugly inside waterproof jacket sleeves too, which is ideal for walkers. But you don’t get the extra insulation of higher priced gloves or the additional adjustment around the wrist and cuff, so the Extremities Multisport either fits or it doesn’t. The back of the glove is not as durable as some others either, so not ideal if you are going to run up against too much rock.
