Outdoor Research Arete Glove - Men's


Arete Glove

The Outdoor Research Arete Glove uses a versatile layering concept to provide the appropriate level of hand protection in varying conditions. When conditions are frigid or foul, the nylon shell with a waterproof, windproof, and breathable Gore-Tex membrane protects against moisture and windchill, and the polyester fleece liner provides insulating warmth and moisture-wicking comfort.

If conditions are less extreme or you're working up a sweat, wear the removable fleece liner by itself with the silicone palm providing a sure grip on poles and tools. The shell features a pre-curved construction which facilitates a more ergonomic fit and freer movement, and the gauntlet closure system makes it quick and easy to cinch down or pull open the cuff. It's no fun to have overly clammy hands or frozen fingers, and this versatile glove makes it easy to customize your level of protection for optimal comfort.

Terrible, they don't hold up. Don't buy

I've used it several times
True to size

I was given a gift of the Arete gloves. They seemed like great gloves, good comfort, warm, liner you can take out or leave in if it is a cold day. However, the seems ripped after only a few uses. I returned them and bought a second pair thinking maybe it was a random manufacture problem on the day they were made. The second pair lasted a few more days on the mountain, I probably skied 6-7 times with them before they tore again. Poor workmanship, they do not stand up to the lifetime guarantee of OR's reputation. Not worth the hassle of having to go through returns and find new gloves.
