Great Gloves!

OR doesn't fail. Great glove for working with your hands and keeping them warm in the process. Got a pair in the early part of this year. It's been great having them around. I'm notorious for having cold hands. They can hold their own into the upper 20s low 30s or so without fail.

Windstopper material is bomber. Cuts through wind like a knife. As the temp dips below the freezing point, the gloves loose a bit of insulation, at least for my iced fingers. In the low single digits and windchills in the negative teens (like it has been for the last couple of days) my fingers get fairly cold. Weak points in the insulation are the little fingers that don't have the "sure grip" material on them.

Sheds snow ... a little. Obviously not waterproof because it's a fleece glove. Don't get too much snow on it when brushing off cars or working around camp because it will soak through.

Dexterity is awesome. Can pull out my wallet and credit card, use the card and put it back without having to take the gloves off.

Great buy for those cooler temps.

I just got a pair of OR Arete gloves. The medium grippers fit inside the large Aretes as a liner. Now talk about bombproof! No water, no cold, just warm, dry hands in this bitter WI weather.
