CG Habitats CG Glove 2020 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride
The CG Habitats CG Glove is built well and has every feature I would want except for snot wipes. I thought I would miss them but I didn’t and at least the glove is soft if you wipe your nose on accident. I’ve ridden these for 4 years and none of the gloves ever had the liner pull out and they held up really well. They have become my go to gloves for medium weather I see on the mountain.

Size Tried: Medium
Width Across The Knuckles: 3.5”
Middle Finger to Wrist 7.5”
Widest Part of the Hand 4.5”
Construction– This is a very well built glove. For this kind of warmth, the CG Habitats Glove is supposed to fit well around a hand and it does that. There was some minor fringing of the leather cuts in the reinforcement areas. After trimming it off with some scissors it never happened again. Might have been a demo model issue. You can tell this glove is for people that ride a lot but also grab their board a lot. I like how my GG glove held up in the past and how the new one I have held up so far.
Warmth- There is enough room for thinner liners to go in but it’s not the kind of glove you want for really cold conditions. I would say that I run a little on the warm side. This can get a little hot on warmer days but I’ve never frozen when a normal Sierra day turned a bit colder.
Fit- The CG Habitats glove fits really well around my fingers and there is a good bit of dexterity for a glove with insulation. I can do most things with my gloves on.
Waterproofing– One of the problems with outerwear and gloves is it’s hard to real-world test waterproofing/breathability. All I can say is the glove doesn’t take in water and it’s been good for me so far. It is close to the Gore-Tex gloves I have tested it against.
Overall Design– the leash, asymmetrical entry point, and velcro strap work well. It’s a great park glove and a pretty strong all-mountain glove.
So yeah this doesn’t have Gore-Tex and isn’t a super well-known product but it’s a great glove. If they added snot wipes It would be perfect to me but even as it stands the GG Habitats Glove is a great choice for those that ride in warm to somewhat cold conditions that people like me often see.
