The North Face Montana stood out as our warmest ski glove, boasting 200 g/m3 of Heatseeker insulation across the back of the hand (keep in mind, though that mittens are still warmer). It is a single construction glove with an integrated (nonremovable) Hyvent liner and a synthetic palm. The long gauntlet length keeps snow out when you're crushing deep powder. Even though this was the warmest glove when dry, we found that it was not very water resistant, and that it quickly became cold after saturation. Due to its bulky materials, it was also the fattest glove tested and it runs really big in size, both of which left us with diminished dexterity. If you buy this model, size down and expect it to perform better in drier snow conditions.
There have been several new updates and added features to the women's Montana glove! These include new styling, new index-finger fabric compatible with handheld electronic devices, increased insulation and a removable handwarmer leash. We are waiting to hear back from The North Face about the details of these new updates and will be adding those details here as soon as we can.
