- very nice (Review by Eldo Ed)
I would say that the materials are top, if not outstanding. These have quickly become my go-to gloves for Rando (Ski Mountaineering) and general winter use. I have warm hands and the shells alone keep me comfortable from 40-15 (lower if I'm skiing up hill) The WindStopper allows enough moisture out that they haven't ever been wet from the inside out.
I do think that OR should curve the fingers MORE, especially since they are technical gloves. If I was designing these, I would make the fingers so that they naturally curved around a 1.5 inch, or smaller tube. The distal joints would be the most curved, as those muscles are far weaker than the proximal joints/ muscles. I see no reason that these gloves explicitly designed to grip a ice tool or ski pole.
I would say that the size is about 1/2 size small, which is perfect for the technical application and grip. In a month of decent use I have seen absolutely zero wear.
Excellent gloves, I may have to buy Version 2 because they should be PERFECT.
