Solid touring gloves
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I've been using these gloves ski touring for a few years now and am a big fan. I really like the big pull tab, that makes pulling them on and off easy, which is great while transitioning. I am a split-boarder and have some hardware I need to fiddle with at the top and bottom. I also appreciate the extra layer on the palm, that keep them dry if I pick up my poles after dropping them in the snow. My only gripe is that I wish they fit under the ski gloves I use for downhill, these are just a bit too thick to slide under them.
Overall they are comfortable and warm, even for weekend long yurt trips.
Wrist stitching busted after a few uses
- Size Bought: XL
I like OR products, and maybe this was just a fluke, but the stitching on the wrist of one glove busted, creating a 1" hole in the glove. I've only used them half a dozen times, too, so I feel like this was fairly extreme...
