The Aksel Work Glove can change a tire in a blizzard just as well as it can change your boots from walk mode to ski mode before you hop on the chairlift. It’s a classic work glove that’s warm enough for skiing: a 100% cow belly shell for durability, and a combination wool/acrylic/polyester lining for wicking and warmth.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Good glove. Tight in the wrist.

4

Great glove. Good articulated fit for doing stuff like ice climbing or skiing or pulling zippers. Really tight in the wrist though. Hard to get over my meaty palms, so not really easy on easy off, but very comfy, and the pull tabs work well even with the shimmy entrance. I pull hard on them.

Great gloves but run super small

My hands are medium at best. The gloves fit way to tight, even for my relatively small hands.

Warm and Mobile work glove

I have primarily used these gloves while doing structural inspections in the 20 degree weather. While I havent had them long enough to comment on durability, I am impressed with the build quality compared to other work gloves I have. Warm enough to keep my hands warm without significant physical activity, but enough dexterity for taking notes and working various inspection tools. Also come on and off easily with damp hands, which is important to me in a cold weather work glove.

So far so good.

I bike commute 25 minutes most of the year. I started using these gloves when morning temps were between 30-35 F, with wind on some of the days. Worked well, kept my hands warm (fingers slightly cold) and fingers were usable enough to use the brake levers. I noted bulky above as a con, they do feel a bit bulky and somewhat movement restrictive, but that is the trade off for warm hands. I live in a dry environment so have not tested them in wet conditions yet.

Great glove, snow seal for some better water resistance. Overall a warm durable glove.

Got mine last year. Came in handy working at my son's Boy Scout troop's Christmas tree lot. Nice and warm and tough ... although not waterproof, unfortunately.

Nice Gloves, If They Lasted

Me and my crew are very avid OR fans, hats, shirts, pants, rain gear, we have it all and are proud to wear it. So when OR finally came out with a cold weather work glove we were stoked. Between the group we ended up with at least 6 pair of gloves. Sadly, every one of them wore out in a matter of a few short months. The main issue is the stitching blew out of most of the fingers, leaving them useless for the cold, wet weather they were intended for. I've sent mine back for in-store credit and will be moving on to try something different, and hopefully OR will learn that their work gloves better get some major stitching improvements to hold up to real adventure and working men wear.

Well made gloves, nice material

Really like these gloves, although sizing is a little weird. Got a medium, really struggled to put them on at first. After squeezing into them a few times and leaving them on for a few minutes at a time, they became a little easier to pull on. Really snug through the palm and hand, yet still a little long in the fingers. I may have oddly sized hands, not sure. Usually a medium fits me well. I imagine being leather that they'll get more comfortable over time.

Nearly perfect, but sizing is weird.

I want to love these gloves and I have not given up. They are made of soft, supple leather that allow terrific dexterity. Great wool-ish insulation. My only problem is the fit. I own many OR gloves and I fit most medium sizes perfectly, sometimes a large. These gloves in a medium fit as expected in the hand and four fingers, but the thumb is remarkably stubby; painfully so. I've been wetting, wearing, and leather-conditioning the heck out of them. The thumbs feel better day-by-day. I anticipate a great fitting work glove with dexterity in all fingers, soon. I would still recommend these, especially if you already own leather conditioner.
