- Bomber Gloves (Review by R.B. Harris)
Bomber, no joking around, all business pair of waterproof, warm gloves... notice I say warm, if your looking for Hot gloves try something else. These have a great fit that gives you the ability to still use the dexterity of your fingers to grab small technical things. As a camera man I could still fully operate my camera without having to take them off. The large loops on the cuff make it fast and easy to put them on. The best design I've seen for a glove of this kind.

- Perfect (Review by Alex O)
I recently received these gloves with other items from OR and I am very pleased with the fit. I ordered a medium hoping the medium sizing was universal to all brands and sure enough it was. They fit great.
The video above in my opinion really tarnishes this product. In the video the gloves look ratty and baggy, but when you get them they tell a different story. Thanks again OR. Where are my stickers? ;)

- Lodestar Gloves™ (Review by By Phillip)
I tested these gloves on an early season winter alpine rock and snow climb. It was on the trail end of the season's first winter storm, so there was plenty of cold wet snow to deal with. Impressively, I managed the entire day with just one pair of Lodestar gloves. Usually, for this climb, I would have separate gloves for approach, lead, and belay/rappel. The climbing performance is very good for an insulated glove. It's definitely not a dedicated mixed glove, but I had no problem handling tools, crimping edges, or jamming. In terms of absolute warmth, the Lodestar isn't too special; I definitely have warmer gloves in my arsenal, but none that are nearly as dexterous. What is special, is the way they react after being soaked and frozen. My hands would get pretty chilled when digging through the snowed up cruxes; the fingers even started to glaze with ice. Usually, I'd have to switch gloves and thaw the frozen ones inside my layers. The Lodestar would get to nearly full warmth after a quick shakeout. They weren't dry, but they FELT dry. This is what allowed me to get away with using one pair the entire day. I bet that by cycling two pair, you could accomplish even bigger winter climbs with much more comfort or dexterity than usual. I look forward to putting these through the paces the rest of the winter.
