Re: Appropriate Gloves
- I would recommend these: http://www.palmflex.com/majestic-2152tw-bald-eagle-winter-mechanics-gloves-waterproof-dozen.html
There is also a non-waterproof version (without an inner membrane) that has a bit more flexibility. Pigskin is very rugged and dries soft. We only sell them by the dozen, but if you want a pair, let me know off board and I'll arrange it for you. The price is under $13 for a pair.

Would I be better off with something heavier for a late August-mid September JMT Southbound hike? I'm actually most concerned about the Whitney summit hike which I will probably start below sunrise from Guitar Lake. Also these gloves are not waterproof.
