The thinnest gloves in Outdoor Research’s line of alpine climbing gloves, the Mixalot Glove is made for ice and mixed climbing in warmer temperatures. The glove’s Gore Windstopper softshell material and goat leather palm keep the cold wind and light water from freezing your digits, while the same thin material allows for an increased range of movement when you have to stop and place a cam or stopper while still keeping your hands warm enough to continue upward through mixed ice and rock. Specifically engineered three-finger articulation and a pre-curved construction means these gloves are made for handling ice tools on rock and ice so you can be confident your gloves are working with your hands when cranking out a stein pull or executing some other type of alpine trickery.

Awesome glove, lasted maybe 15 pitches.
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
These fit me perfectly and have wonderful dexterity. Great for mixed and warmer ice climbing. Yeah, I knew they were thin and that they probably wouldn't last super duper long interacting with rock and ropes, but even trying to be nice to them I got maybe 15 pitches out of them before both gloves had a hole in the middle finger. Sad face.

Would not buy this again. I was in some wet snow/ rain conditions and the palm side soaked it all up. It's been three days in my apartment and they are still damp .The palm seems to be made of some type of leather and I don't expect a lot of durability out of it, it's very thin. On the plus side the gloves are extremely dexterous and I was able to tie knots with some small cordage.

Great uphill ski glove
- I've used it several times
I wanted something super light for touring because my hands always sweat but I don't want to go without some kind of glove. Perfect.
