A ray of light for technical alpine climbers.
After extensive testing and feedback from Outdoor Research athletes, the softshell Men's Luminary Glove came to light. Made from WindStopper Soft Shell material, the Luminary protects in tough winter conditions and provides the high level of dexterity bold alpine climbers require. Purposely designed without a waterproof membrane for ultra-quick drying and maximum breathability, this glove can literally dry while you're wearing it.
- WindStopper Soft Shell material on the glove's exterior protects in tough weather conditions, is exceptionally quick drying, and provides excellent dexterity
- Removable fleece liner provides warmth and expedites drying times
- Leather wraparound palm provides durability and a secure grip on ice tools
- Supercinch gauntlet seals around the upper wrist to keep snow and ice out
- Soft nose wipe on thumb is kind on sensitive skin
- Carabiner loop on the back of the hand allows you to clip these gloves to a harness or hang them up to dry

warm glove, besides ice climbing.

Been using the gloves for a full season now, and they are super warm. There are a few tabs and loops but all super convenient. The only downside, and it could be just me is that they are not very good for ice climbing if thats what your thinking of getting them for. A bit too bulky and I am forever getting the screaming barfies. And the other bummer is that the tabs and one of the straps fell off on me. Or i could just be tough on them. Other than that the glove is awesome!
Nice features, not very warm

The features on this glove are great: large gauntlet with easy tighten/loosen cinches, windproof, removable liners, not too bulky. The main issue is the gloves do not keep my fingers warm. I do not tend to get cold skiing (one running shirt under a mid-weight jacket is what I wear down to 5 degrees), but my fingers consistently get cold when wearing these gloves below 30 degrees. My cheapo Columbia gloves were way warmer than these. They might be better in the backcountry where you are working more, but for lift service, don't expect them to be super warm.
Great backcountry ski glove!
Great gloves. I've used them for backcountry skiing all winter. They keep you dry and warm but if it's too hot you can take the liner out and either use that as gloves or just wear the outer. Problem is I keep losing the left glove. After losing the first left I bought another pair and promptly lost the new left. Damn. Now I'm stuck with 2 rights.
