You don't have to live and die by sheer chutes and drop-off-the-face-of-the-earth summit runs to enjoy The North Face's Steep Purist Glove, it'll just feel all the more right if you do. Its durable, low-profile, and dexterity-enhancing design will be perfect for all those runs where you're pole-planting hard or scraping the mountain as you send it down steep terrain. The water-resistant goat leather and waterproof insert team up to keep out any snow you might kick up, while PrimaLoft insulation delivers toasty warmth as you search for untouched runs in frigid temps. And as an added bonus, the waterproof insert technology actually works to improve upon dexterity, so your protection won't come at the cost of much-needed mobility. Foam protection on the knuckles and back of hand ensures that you can brush away tree branches without worry, and the undercuff design with a neoprene cuff and adjustable closure keeps your warmth securely sealed in.
