      Great question! Can’t believe I left that out. They come in a two-pair pack for a little under $30.

    Ray,

    Your blog and book have been indispensable resources for my foray into backpacking, as well as my planning of my JMT hike this summer. So first, thank you! I’m trying to figure out a glove system for my hike, as my hands get cold very easily. Ideally, I’m looking for a light, sun-protectant liner type glove for the warm days, and something warmer for night. Are these gloves comfortable in the heat? Are they heavy? Also, would you say a pair of waterproof over mitts would be worth bringing on the JMT? I’m really trying to save weight, so I don’t want to take a lot extraneous stuff…but I also don’t want to get too cold. Thanks for any advice!

    Considering getting these for a RMNP day hikes in October (I always use trekking poles of course) and just for general all around day hikes in my area – Hill Country in Texas. The “breathability” is my concern. Although I really don’t sweat much.

    Love reading through the prior posts to get ideas for my hike next summer. And making my shopping list. Thanks Ray for the wonderful information.

    Aloha, Diane
