Product Reviews
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Odd Fit Unlike other comments, I knew and wanted gloves that were bulky for the extra warmth that that provides. Unfortunately these gloves fit HORRIBLY. I got the correct size, XL, but I still could not straighten out my fingers and thumb beyond a "C" shape. The fingers are stitched way too short and the thumb area is stitched so high up in the palm area you can't move your thumb back. The liner fit okay, it was just the shell. My 11 year old son could not get his hand to straighten out either, so it's not because of the size of the gloves, it's the way they were put together. I am really bummed because I think that they would actually be a great/warm pair of gloves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm! All of OR's well-insulated gloves feel tight across the palm due to the partial flexion position they are built to (in orthopedics we call this anatomically neutral, not sure the term for clothing). I was worried about how these gloves would work for the alpine scrambles in the Cascades but so far I don't notice any problems. These are thick enough that it requires a little more effort to grip my axe while walking but I can grip 9.2mm rope no problem. The biggest benefit is warmth and after freezing my fingers off up Rainier last spring I am quite happy with these on Adams and a few others this year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Has potential but needs a redesign I first ordered these in an XL since that's the size for all my other OR gIoves. The XL's were very sloppy with extra material on the back of the hand. I also ordered a size LG hoping these things would improve but it was the same problem with just shorter fingers. Also, the gloves do not have the same level of dexterity as other higher end gloves from OR - the square cut fingers and poor fit don't help either. These gloves do have a grippy palm and feel like they would be plenty warm in extreme weather. If OR decides to redesign this glove, it could be a great seller for the brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased but haven't tested yet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First these seem exceptionally well made. Back of the glove sheds water like a well waxed car. I'll update in few months after I've tested these up in the Whites. But for now just a sizing comment. I don't have gigantic hands but I ordered the XL and the palms fit fine but the fingers of these gloves seem a bit short, especially the pinky. Maybe it's a break-in thing or maybe I have oddly long fingers and never realized it until now. Those long digits tend to get cold fast in the winter so we'll see how well these gloves do. I have high hopes based on how well made these seem. 4 stars on these now just for the short fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gloves, but round up for sizing Great gloves. I've used them several times and the liners and the shell work great independently, but together they restrict movement in the thumb (webbing seems too short from thumb to index finger). Leaves holding tools feeling a bit insecure (tools are held between fingers and glove stretched taught, not necessarily pressed up against the palm). This is not the case when liner or shell are used separately. Would recommend sizing up if close. Quality construction and materials. I can tell these will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair of gloves I've ever worn Amazing gloves. I found them good to -30 with windchill even though they don't 'feel' very insulated. They are actually 2 pairs of gloves, a waterproof, insulated liner with touchscreen fingertips, and a heavy weight outer that is likewise insulated and fleece lined. You can wear the outers on their own, or the inners by themselves, so really you're getting 3 gloves for the price of 1. The wrist keepers are super handy when having to take the outers off, but I would ask that OR puts wrist keepers on the inners somehow - I found myself taking them off as well to fix camera equipment etc and having to hold the inner between my legs. Also a fleece bit on the backs of the outers (snot rag in the parlance) would be beneficial. But all in all, best pair of ski gloves I've ever had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing I have Alti gloves from 2010 in size XL and I loved their fit and they have held up great through skiing, ice climbing, mountaineering, snow blowing, shoveling and everything winter brings. As my fingers started to wear through on the old gloves I decided it was time for new ones. I loved the Alti gloves so much and I wanted to get another pair. I came here to read some reviews and saw a lot of sizing issues. Looking at the pictures, I had some concerns regarding the guantlet sizing since it looked a lot smaller. I then decided to call OR customer service and asked about the glove sizing and guantlet. I was assured the gauntlet was still large, just like my alti gloves from 2010. I asked about the reviews regarding finger length....I was told they are "pre curved" and it give the impression that the fingers are shorter, but not everyone feels that way. So....I bought the current version of the Alti Gloves in size XL from one of OR's dealers. They arrived and what a disappointment. The fingers do indeed feel very short and the new glove does not even come close to the sizing of the older model. The fingers do indeed feel short. The guantlet sizing is a huge disappointment too. I almost always wear my gauntlets over my jacket. Unfortunately, it barely fits over my down sweater jacket. I regularly use a belay parka like an Absolute Zero parka and I have to work to tuck the jacket into the gauntlets, then it compresses that part of the jacket. It's just not acceptable for a pair of gloves of this caliper and what I think their intended use is. I'm attaching some images showing the difference in overall glove length and guantlet width. The guantlet is about 1.5" narrower in the new glove and the overall length is about 1.25" shorter, even with the "curved" fingers flattened out. Do yourself a favor and try these on somewhere before you just decide to buy them and assume they will fit well. OR, please reconsider the design of these gloves!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would buy a different glove. Has all the right technical materials but the fit i for me was awful, unless you have hands built of legos. Very boxy gloves. The web material between the thumb and index finger is quite short and prevents you from spreading your thumb out. Kind of like having an elastic holding your thumb to you hand. I was really looking forward to using this technical glove. I also bought the 3 finger gloves and they are amazing.
