Fleece gloves come in all sorts of sizes, shapes, and costs. They are a very simple and effective solution to keep your hands warm in dry, cold conditions for very little weight. We don’t recommend spending a lot of money on run-of-the-mill fleece gloves. That’s why we like the Columbia Fast Trek Fleece Glove. It’s very inexpensive, fits well, is lightweight, and dries very fast (see the dry time tests in this article). Pair it with a rain mitt and you have a very light, very warm system for all-season backpacking.
