Great gloves
February 10, 2013

Gloves worked out well on Mountaineering route of a Whitney in Feb 2013. They were comfortable at temps in the low 20s. They performed well when wet allowing good grip.

Pros: Ease of use, Great value

Stylish and warm

Great Gloves for Ski Touring
January 23, 2012

I purchased these gloves primarily for skinning after the leather in my Marmot Spring Gloves wore out. I found that the Stormtracker gloves are far more breathable than the Spring Gloves which meant they don't get as wet inside after sweating up the skin track. I treated the leather fingers and palms with Nixwax in hopes that they will hold up better than the Marmots. The WINDSTOPPER works as advertised and the zipper closure is a better idea than velcro since it won't pile like velcro closures tend to to. I've used these gloves in temperatures down to zero degrees Fahrenheit and they kept me warm once I started moving. OR gloves and hats tend to run small and these gloves are no exception. I usually wear a medium to large glove and these gloves are a little on snug side in a size large.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: sizes run small, no nose wipe

Light weights
December 19, 2010

I bought these after losing a pair of MH Torsion gloves. They are very good for dexterity but I'd argue with the product description and say they are not warm - at all. I'm in Minnesota, so it's cold, real cold. Maybe sunny Colorado is different. Below about 15F, I switch to something else. Ice climbing with these (with super thin wool liners under) at 15F my hands all but went numb with cold. I think the old Torsion's were warmer. Also, the tricot liner is a drop liner, it's somewhat lose inside the glove. If you put a wet hand in the glove, this can make it tougher to get on, It's not a laminated softshell fabric. The zip cuff and pull-on loop are awesome. Good for working in the garage, or driving - I'm getting something warmer for playing outside.

Cold weather, yes; freezing, not so much.
January 15, 2011

I own a similar glove from Mountain Hardwear which professes to be waterproof and windproof. True, no water has ever penetrated those MH gloves but wind definitely does. With the OR Stormtracker gloves, wind is no issue; the Windstopper membrane is like armor. That being said they'll only keep your fingers warm in temperatures down to 20F; the tricot lining isn't sufficient in lesser temps, and, although they're windproof, freezing cold can't be thwarted by anything but insulation. Back to pros: the leather palm is resilient but supple enough to allow the wearer fine movement, e.g. removing small items from pockets; the zippered gauntlet cinches nicely without adding diffulty of use - even while zipping one glove while wearing the other - plus by opting for a zipper instead of velcro OR avoids the inevitable "fuzz" that plagues velcro; and finally, better than the picture, these gloves have a charcoal colored "OR" logo embroidered in the middle of the back of the hand. I would have given them five stars if they kept me warmer below 20F, albeit they're warmer than the aforementioned MH gloves, and they do allow for use of a liner glove...hmmm.


Awesome gloves
March 22, 2010

These gloves are great for aerobic activities in cool or cold conditions. I replaced an old pair of north face windstopper gloves with these and they are fantastic. Shed water well and completely block wind. I've used them both biking and hiking in the rain and they keep my hands dry and warm, while still allowing me alot of dexterity. They are also very light making them easy to pack for any activity. Probably not warm enough for super cold weather, but great for everything else.

Highly dexterous gloves
April 05, 2011

These gloves do exactly what i purchased them for ... keep the wind out on cold days and are very very dexterous. I wanted them to use while walking the dog and around town stuff and they work great. Easy to put on and remove and very comfortable. They aren't for frigid cold weather, i would say between 25-50f they are just right & they keep cold breezes out.


Warmth VS Utility
February 03, 2011

This is a nice-looking, nicely made glove. The details are well thought out. The pull on loop is just where you need it and does the job. The thinness gives you the ability to use your fingers for practical things, but the price you pay is warmth. Wore them out in 15 degrees and very quickly I could feel the cold through them. If your moving or working with your hands I think they'd be fine, or on a milder day, when you want to cut the wind chill. They look bulkier in the image, but they are really quite sleek. A nice glove if you understand its limitations and need the accessibility to using your hands that it provides.
