- Warm but bulky in fit (Review by bill)
These gloves work for warmth. I have used them twice with temps. between 5 and 15 degrees fahrenheit. They are bulky. With a little work you can get them on and off. They are the warmest gloves I have owed. Just a bulky while on.

- Alti Gloves™ (Review by By Lou the Skiier)
After dealing with several sub-par ski gloves in the past several years, I decided that it was time to spend a little more money on a pair of gloves and hopefully not have cold hands anymore. At the recommendation of a friend who climed Mt. Kilimanjaro using the OR Alti Gloves, I decided that if they were good enough for him at the top of one of the 7 summits, it would be good enough for my single digit ski days in New England.The construction of the glove is fantasic - they aren't heavy, but they certianly aren't lightweight. The gloves consist of 2 parts, the exterior shell, and then an interior liner (not pictured here...but the interior liner is a vibrant red color). The interior liner is just a softshell insulated glove that fits right into the shell glove and also has an interior pocket for a handwarmer for added warmth. The shell glove also has a light amount of insulation on it. There is a draw cord to cinch the gloves closed, and the gaultlet is adequatly long enough to cover over any jacket. The tightening band is easy enough to pull and release while wearing the gloves as well.The gloves are a little stiff at first, but do break in a little bit after wearing. They are thick gloves, but you still have good dexterity in using them (no issues with gripping my poles at all). The leather based palms offer good grip on anything you go to handle.Overall, I can't say enough good things about these gloves. I used them in single digit temperatures last weekend skiing in New England and I didn't even need a hand warmer to keep my hands warm - my hands actually started sweating at one point! Only thing that I could see adding to the glove would be the inclusion of a nose wipe on the thumb or forefinger, but it's not worth docking a star for that.
