Here's what others have to say...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I decided to go for these, and after a couple days in some serious conditions (~12-13k in the CO Summit County, -40 temps, 65mph winds) I can definitely back the capabilities of this glove.

The liners are indeed five fingered with a healthy amount of rubber grip spots on the palm and fingertips. They also come with Velcro on the top and bottom of the wrist which matches up with opposing Velcro on the main trigger mitten, making it easier to take them off together. Since the liners are not smartphone compatible and I use my phone for music, this came in very handy more than once.

If I were to ever venture into colder conditions, the spacious nature of the gloves would definitely allow for a possible third (it would have to be thin) liner on the inside.

About the removable liner, the demonstration...

About the removable liner, the demonstration video shows that the "mitten" version of this glove has a mitten liner(all four fingers together). Does this glove have a three-fingered liner or is it a five fingered liner?

Responded on

The liner will be a five fingered liner

Outdoor Research Highcamp 3-Finger Glove

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Needed some time to break in and fit to my hand, but the lobster takes the best features of gloves and mitts. I was skeptical about the design, but it was worth it.

Good Gloves

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These were my first "lobster claw" gloves. On my first used, I noticed they fit much bigger then what I am used to. I had way too much extra length then what was expected. I would definitely pay close attention to the sizing chart before buying these. I was going to buy a smaller size and exchange, but they were out of stock by the time I decided to do that. Although they worked, the size issue didn't really give me a chance to test these out completely.

Essential for Winter Sports

The best 3-finger gloves I've ever used. I've been skiing/snowboarding for 8years

Good glove for certain activities. . .

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Glove is evertything they say it is and I'm very happy with it's overall fuctionality. Bought them initially for snowboarding but for myself I found them a touch tough when it came to certain "fine" operations. I now use them simply for dog walking and the occasional late year round of golf. They also run just a touch on the large side, I usually wear an XL glove but this XL is much larger than most.

Love them!

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

These things are awesome! I love that these are the best of both worlds. They are super warm. Just tested them out in -10 weather with a lot of wind and my fingers (with the liner) were never cold. The leather is wearing unusually fast so I am going to exchange for another pair. May be a fluke.
*UPDATE* Got a new pair from Backcountry and they are brilliant! Super warm and ridiculously comfortable! Must buy.

Sweet Gloves

These are great gloves. Warmth, with the ability to actually use your hands without taking them off. You don't even need the liners that come with them. Great quality, great price.

Has a break in period

Which is kind of weird. After a day or so of use (and working out a better way to make the liners work, pulling my long-underwear sleeves over the velcro on the gloves and go), these fit great and work great. Good for everything from cold ski-tours to days at the resort. Haven't tried them climbing yet, but I will later this month, at which point I will update. Definitely prefer this design over a traditional mitt. I just wish they had a snot patch, as the cold, abrasive nylon is not great for chronically runny noses.

Upon further review, these things climb like a champ. One of the most dextrous shell gloves I've ever owned.

take them a little larger

Size chart recommended "M" but it was a bit tight, especially with removable liner.
Size "L" was perfect for me. I used these gloves with and without the liner and they are great.

This is a great hybrib between a glove and a mitten. They are warm like a mitten, but are much more dexterous.
They seem well made and durable with functional hardware and a trim fit.
Where they really shine for me is winter mountain biking. My hands get horribly cold on the downhills, and this seems to be the only hand-wear to prevent this and still allow one finger break modulation.
I think they will also be great for backcountry skiing when dinking with skins and zippers, and are even nimble enough to put in a screw or clip a beaner. The liner glove has a warmer pocket, which seems like a good idea, but I haven't needed it so far.

Anyone tried out this mitt's. I am thinking...

Anyone tried out this mitt's. I am thinking about getting the Marmot Lobster Mitten ( or this mitten. How does this mitten compare to the Marmot Lobster Mitten and which is warmer and stays drier? Also, anyone know if the liner on this is 3 finger or if the middle, ring and pinky fingers are seperated in the liner? I intend to use it for snowboarding.

I don't know how much insuation is in the Marmot, but this one from OR is really sweet for warmth. It's not your "sub-zero" Alti Mitt that they do, but it is warm on any given day. The liner is a glove line, separated out. Waterproof, breathable and great dexterity!
