      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Patagonia "Stretch Element Gloves" - any Opinions?

Recommended Posts

I have had a pair of Patty Stretch Triolet gloves for a few years now. Very happy. laugh.gif

 

Now I need new gloves, and I am thinking that the Stretch Elements would be a nice upgrade since they don't make the Triolets anymore. They are reinforced in all the areas that my gloves are wearing out.

 

Any one tried them?

Have em, love em. Warm, dry*, burly, and comfortable. Perhaps a bit bulky but when dexterity is crucial I bring a thinner set of gloves as well.

* any dampness from condensation build up or exterior superficial wetness dries quickly when seperated and heated.

They have fixed all the problems with the stretch triolets (eg: adding leather to high abrasion areas). Loss of a little dexterity but they are still my all around favorite!
