The North Face Vortex

This is an excellent winter glove for general walking as the narrow short gauntlet can be easily worn inside the cuff of your waterproof jacket. Further more it has a quality liner glove that is ideal for taking the chill off your digits during chilly weather. The shell glove is a great fit with or without the liner, and provides superb waterproof protection. The palm is reinforced and the fit allows good dexterity. The wrist is elasticated with a webbing buckle for a closer fit, and the cuff gets a Velcro tab adjuster. You get a nose wipe and a goggle wipe on the forefinger. A wrist leash means you won’t lose the gloves in the wind when you take them off to check your compass. This is an excellent glove with a great price and features. But some may prefer more of a gauntlet style for use in extreme weather, powder snow and climbing. Some may not want a removable liner design either. However these are the only real drawbacks here, making this otherwise ideal for general walkers.
