Warm!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used on a short motorcycle ride to keep my hands warm and my hands were hot. I got these and intend on using them around camp and while i sleep to keep my hands toasty and warm. So far they seam like a good lightweight glove. They are a little tight but maybe i should of got the size bigger but i imagine that they will stretch out a bit after some wear.

Great lightweight pair of gloves!

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

I love these gloves! I wish they had a bit more grip to them,but its enough to get the job done. i have been using these as my everyday glove. its been about 20-35 for the past 2 weeks and surprisingly these kept my hands warm for the most part. wind doesn't seem to bother my hands in these. they seem to repel water decently. perfect showshowing gloves. but obviously they will only keep your hands warm depending on the temp, these are not something you want to just have while you are out in freezing weather for an extended period of time.

but def worth the money, and are a great everyday lightweight insulated glove!

o they come feeling really small out of the package, but stretch in about a day or two and the sizing is perfect, just a little long in the finger tips.

Good all-around winter glove

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

This is my second pair of these gloves. The first pair I bought about 2 years ago but left in Europe, so I needed to buy these to get me through a Chicago winter. The fit is good, although, I had to up-size to a medium, as the small was just too tight. I'm 5'7" and have small hands, but the men's small seemed sized for a women's hand. The medium is a good, comfortable fit, so it may be that OR's sizing runs small. The rubberized padding is great for extra grip while driving or shoveling, but I noticed that a layer of the rubberized grip is already coming off after only a month. It still works, but it seems like this shouldn't be happening. The warmth factor is good for an all around winter glove. For long exposures on a really cold or windy day, you'll want a shelled glove or mitten, but these are my standard go-to gloves for getting around in the winter.

Does the silicone finger pad allow for touch screen ability?

Responded on

No, the silicone doesn't do anything for that. Gloves that have "e-tip" or "touch" in the model name are usually the touch-screen compatible ones.

Responded on

OR uses a special leather on their "sensor" gloves which is touch screen compatible, and TNF uses a silvery fabric (not sure what it is exactly) that is touch screen compatible.

Very happy

Just what I was wanting. Whether I'm walking on the trail, watching a game or driving my cold car...I don't think about my hands because they're warm.

what is the coldest weather it would be...

Posted on

what is the coldest weather it would be good to wear just these gloves? my job requires me to be out in the cold at around 6 in the morning during the winter. i live in Pittsburgh so it could be around 10 degrees fahrenheit or lower at that time. think these will do the job?

Responded on

What do you do for work--is it aerobic or just sitting around? Does it involve wetness? Are you concerned with wind?

The PL400 is a pretty weighty "liner" so as far as insulation, so you don't have to sacrifice too much dexterity for warmth--great for "sitting" work so a super aerobic job might need some "ventilating" on the mornings above 20deg.

However the other two things I asked about--wetness and wind--kill the warmth factor. If you think you'll be dealing with that either a.) check out the OR Extravert Glove (better for inclement weather but a little less insulated--perfect for an aerobic job though); or b.) check out a basic shell glove that you can slip on for the odd wet/windy morning.

usually for work im outside walking around a good bit from 6 - 8. i will have to deal with brushing a bit of snow off cars

Outdoor Research PL 400 Gloves and Mitts

Posted on

Outdoor Research® Glove Product Manager Meghan Martens talks about the PL 400 Gloves and Mitts™. Toasty warm in the bitter cold, these double-layer fleece glove and mitt liners are an ideal companion for long days in the backcountry. MotionWrap™ and MirrorSeam™ construction provide a technical yet comfortable fit, and the silicone grip palm prevents slippage when being used within outer shell gloves or mitts.

Boom

I have a number of gloves in my arsenal and have worn more. Out of all the gloves I have worn, however, this is my go to. They are remarkably warm while still giving tremendous dexterity. Lightweight and anything but bulky, these gloves won't disappoint. The only "downside" to these gloves is that they are not wind or water proof, but they were not designed to be. However I have noticed that even when they do get a little wet, often it is only the outer layer while the inner, 100 weight fleece stays nice and dry.

Perfect Fleece Gloves

Love these bad boys... They replaced my old Backcountry Goat fleece gloves. The insulating layer is nice and they are great for cold Iowa winters. They even held up in snow shoveling weather. As another reviewer noted, the plastic on the finger tips did start to peel but in my mind, doesn't affect the gloves much.

Best Gloves!

My husband got his first pair last year and won't stop raving about them. He manly wears them snowboarding, they are super warm and they don't hold the snow. Which is rare to find in liners. They are extremely durable, the finger tips are layered with material so if you wear them down there is a fresh layer of material to help make them last longer. They are not bulky at all! He has had his pair over a year now and they are still in great condition!

At last! A really warm glove!

Fantastic!
After searching for years, these are the best gloves for extreme cold conditions.
During river steelhead fishing in sub-zero temps, these gloves are perfect.
Your hands can freeze while holding the rod and reel, and you still need warm hand dexterity.
They provide toasty warm comfort, but are not too bulky.
Finally, a product that exceeds all of my winter fishing glove expectations!
Well done OR!!!!!!!!
