These gloves are great for hiking. They fit well, and the backstop gives me a great grip when I'm out on the trails. I plan to use these for skiing as well. I would definitely recommend this product.

These gloves are very warm, especially on a windy day hiking up a trail. I like the grip. I bought these specifically with the grip in mind for skiing. Plenty of room.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value

Not a bad product
October 11, 2011

Like all Outdoor Research products, these are well made and seem to have a durable construction. They are a little heavy with a windstopper material on the back of the hand which I think is meant to allow the palms to breath and reduce overheating. I don't know what I would use them for though. They are too heavy to run or doing anything too athletic in unless you are talking about really low temperatures. The palm material also doesn't seem durable enough to be able to withstand skiing with them for too long. So overall a good product, well thought out, just not sure what to use them for.

Pros: Build quality, Great value, Cons: Bad design
