Avoiding the burn !

I have always been outdoors. Especially hunting and fishing. Recently I was prescribed a medication making me very sensitive to the sun. I was able to cover up but left my hands exposed and in spite of liberal use of sunscreen was burned on the back of my hands. I discovered your chroma sun gloves and used them on my next fishing trip. No Burn !! despite being out all day. Thank you Outdoor Research !

Great Gloves

I have almost two years on a pair of these and they've held up remarkably well. One palm is finally showing wear but they've seen quite a bit of abuse in a variety of terrain, especially the Sonoran Desert. As advertised, they're comfortable to wear, breathe well, and have done a great job mitigating sun damage on my old, beat up hands. Extremely pleased with my purchase.

Great purchase! ActiveIce Chroma Sun Gloves

These ActiveIce Chroma Sun Gloves are wonderful. The fit is spot on. They not only protect from the sun but provide grip and protection with trekking poles and even scrambling in the rocks.

Nice fit

These gloves are comfortable with the right amount of stretch. I appreciate that they can be attached together when not worn.

light for summer and nice for fall

I decided it was about time I started protecting my hands from the sun - and purchased the chrome sun gloves. I tested them out on training hikes and then took them out for a week in early September in the Cascades of WA. The days were comfortable, but cool enough that wearing the gloves was nice both for sun protection and a little warmth. They fit well and I look forward to using them more next year.

Great protection, great fit!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When hiking/climbing at high altitude, it's key to have something protecting the back of your hands from the sun. These fit great, are super light, and give you full dexterity for scrambling/climbing. I also find them pretty amazing for clearing sweat from my brow and perfect for a quick "wipe" after a "farmer's blow". Just choose different locations. ;)

Best. Backpacking. Gloves. Ever.

These are great for backpacking, hiking, etc. I've bought several pairs. The palms wear out a little fast, and I had to replace a pair, but I love the touch/feel of the palm also so... catch 22. Other than that it would have been a 5 (maybe it still is..?)
