None that I can think of. I've used my Alibi's all over the backcountry and been nothing but absolutely happy with them. Couple that with OR's no-questions-asked guarantee, and you've got a glove that is truly amazing.

Thanks, I bought them but they were too small so I returned them.

Warmth depends on the person. Tight fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Usual top quality that you get from OR. But I ran into problems with them when climbing mount hood. Two separate climbs when the temperature was only between + 20 and 30 degrees, my hands keep going numb. I wasn't putting my hand in the snow. I was working hard and my core body temperature was plenty warm. Since the tag says theses gloves are designed for -20, they should have kept my fingers functional. I think OR gloves and mitts run a little small, but since I'm already XL, I'm SOL. Might work for you if you're hands stay warm.

Responded on

I agree, very tight fit. Buy up a size and don't think the XL will fit you if you have big hands

Amazing gloves but Expensive

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great gloves, some of the best ever made for the warmth and dexterity. I took them to Alaska and climbed a bunch of mixed routes with them. They are the gold standard in a lot of peoples opinion for a really warm glove that still allows you to place gear effieciently. The only drawback is the massive price tag. They do have a lifetime warrenty though.

New favorite glove...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These gloves are the best I have owned. I have a pair of Cloudveil Troller gloves that were my favorite before trying and using these gloves. They are designed for climbing, but I use them for outdoor activities-skiing, snowshoeing, etc. They are the best. Super warm, dry, and the fit is great. Granted these are pricey, but if you watch for them on sale, you can get a good deal.

Mountaineer or Alpinist Quiver Glove

  • Gender: Male

Alpine Alibi II is a glove working in tandem with the Alibi Jacket and pants climates. This mid weight technical leather/Scholler work glove focuses on protection from snow and ice in moderately cold days (30F- -10F) or direct exposure to snow. A few features make this a great snow work glove for patrollers or guides for the day-to-day grind are:
~Full Length Cuff: for deep snow work or climbing
~Full Leather fingers and palms: lasts longer for the season(s) and has reinforced high use areas.
~Light insulation: not to compromise dexterity

I have found that this glove seasons. Meaning once you first put in on its a little tight and the fingers can get cold...but with repeated use the glove molds to your hand perfectly giving you some of the best dexterity a glove has ever offered before in its weight class.
