Myth: every time you cut off a finger of the Mountain Hardwear Hydra Glove, it grows two more. Fact: When you're in alpine environments, the OutDry waterproof membrane will keep your hands dry and comfortable, and the Thermal. Q Elite insulation and fleece lining will make sure your fingers stay warm. The Hydra's wrap around finger design moves seams away from your fingertips for extra dexterity and warmth, and the Hydra Span stretch nylon and goatskin leather palm provide an extra shot of dexterity, toughness, and water resistance. Add in a drawstring cuff closure and suede nose wipe patch, and the Hydra's ready to attack all your alpine and mountaineering adventures.
