The popular Lithic Gloves are discontinued. But don't worry, we have other great ski glove recommendations from arc'Teryx and others.
Arc'teryx constructed the Lithic Glove using an innovative design that utilizes some of the most technical fabrics available; it certainly incorporates the most unique construction methods for a ski glove. The Lithic truly maximizes the potential dexterity of a ski glove while remaining one of the warmest and most water resistant contenders in our review. While these gloves offer above average warmth, it is worth remembering that they are not the warmest gloves out there nor are they even the warmest in our review. The reasons to buy these gloves are not because they're the absolute warmest, but because they offer a very high level of warmth while maintaining exceptional feel, dexterity, and water resistance, all things other gloves lose as they get warmer and their bulk increases.
The Lithic's only real downside is their price; at $250, they are easily the most expensive glove in our review, costing you around $60 more than any of the the other models we tested, or $180 in the case of The North Face Montana Mitt. Besides offering top notch dexterity and weather resistance, another advantage that we didn't expect (but discovered once we started field testing) is that the Lithic is easily the most packable glove for the warmth it provides, something worth noting for climbing, backcountry skiing, or any other winter activity where a solid balance of warmth, weather protection, and packability are appreciated.
