One of my favorite layers in the new Subalpine Ascent series is the Ascent Glove. I’ve been using a mix of Merino wool gloves and Mechanix gloves over the years for the dexterity I need to manipulate archery equipment, smart devices, camera equipment, etc. The Mechanix gloves provided the durability I wanted but the Merino gloves allowed me to use my onXmaps app on my smartphone for navigation somewhat. The new Ascent gloves have bridged the gap and then some. The fit of these gloves is amazing and they offer extreme durability that fits the bill.
