I'm guessing off hand that the MLD Event mitts might be a bit more durable long term? The only reason why i would consider the Zpacks one is because of weight, and more so because you probably don't need to DWR treat it like you would the MLD ones *(meaning more specifically, that the Cuben Fiber fabric probably doesn't require a DWR coating to begin with, and while the MLD event mitts come with a DWR coating, it will eventually wash off. I have contacted Joe to ask him about this assumption though and will update accordingly). Ultimately though, i'm more interested in long term durability.
Looking for feedback especially from folks with experience with one or the other, or especially both.
*Edited for clarity, i wasn't trying to say that the MLD Event mitts didn't come with a DWR--i assumed they did, but i was thinking that the Cuben WBP stuff might not need it like many other WPB fabrics. When Joe get's back to me, i will edit it again.
