Icebreaker Unisex Quantum Gloves Review

I have been using incarnations of these gloves for over five years now and while they are not meant as a snow glove (nor as a wet weather glove), they are ideal when seeking to keep your hands warm on days when you don’t need something waterproof. While I own a set of heavy duty mountaineering gloves I only ever use them when I know I need a waterproof layer or will be out and about in very cold snowy conditions which is not normally the case.

For the rest of the time when waterproofing is not a major concern the Icebreaker Quantum Gloves are ideal for providing warmth and for me these gloves keep me toasty down to about -7° Celsius – yes, I do have a high degree of cold tolerance! For most people you may need an extra layer and Icebreaker make a glove liner that fits under the Quantum gloves to provide that extra warmth. Alternatively, you can wear your Quantum gloves underneath a waterproof set of gloves.

These gloves allow for a good level of dexterity and you can undertake all activities except for those requiring very fine motor skills. And these gloves will fold up into almost nothing. I usually only use these gloves early in the morning or late in the afternoon-evening otherwise they come off and live inside my down jacket ready to be dragged out when next needed.

Icebreaker Unisex Quantum Gloves

We Like

  • Very light weight fabric which is great for use as a single layer glove or as a glove liner when its extra cold
  • 98% wool and 2% Lycra construction means this garment will remain relatively odour free. They are very durable and have just the right amount of stretch. They will last you for years
  • Breathable fabric that dries quickly when wet ensuring that you stay warm

We Don't Like

  • Icebreaker garments are not cheap however they are excellent value for money given they will last for years
  • Any colour you like as long as its black
