Named after the Mountaneer Vitaly Abalakov, Outdoor Research's Vitaly Glove is geared for any style of ice climbing whether single pitch or alpine. Waterproof, windproof, breathable Gore-Tex Xtrafit fends off biting winds and frigid ice melt as you swing your ice tools hoping they bite into the ice securely. Top-of-the-line Primaloft Gold insulation works to trap heat and keep your digits warm, while still providing a lightweight and slim feel for optimal performance. Meanwhile, a pre-curved construction streamlines performance with efficiency so your hands work with the glove to hold onto your ice tools as you work your way up the ice climb.

Excellent Skiing Glove
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
When I first received these, I was a little put off about the lack of a wrist cinch or strap, but after using these for two seasons, I have had no issues with snow getting in or the gloves moving around on my hands. If anything, having the glove loose around my wrist seemed to keep everything warmer. I think the size M was a touch small for my hands, so I've never worn liners with them. Even on the coldest ski days, the gloves themselves were enough to keep my fingers warm. On the other hand, I never had an issue with these gloves being TOO warm on warmer days. They seem to vent well. Dexterity is good, the palms have proven to be grippy and durable, and the waterproofing and huge cuff are very nice features. I can't say anything about how these gloves work for their intended purpose of ice climbing, but as a skiing glove I have loved them.

Might be OK
- I returned this product before using it
I purchased a pair of OR ExtraVert gloves and used them Ice climbing only to figure out there is too much glove finger beyond my fingers making it difficult to tie knots, work ice screws and carabiners. I ordered the Vitaly glove hoping they would be better. Turns out the glove fingers are too long for my fingers so am sending them back. I don't have stubby or short fingers so not sure about the design. They would make good general mountaineering gloves as they seem to be well made and look like they would be as warm as most gloves in that weight

- I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought these as a gift and they're great, the fingers feel great and there's a natural articulation which helps. They are advertised for ice, but in my opinion they're aren't going to excel at that, more of a ski resort glove o, maybe if you're the second and cleaning the screws but I wouldn't want to be pumped trying to place a screw in theses gloves.

About using the glove for ice climbing, are they too bulky and you cannot feel what you are doing or are they too thin and your fingers freeze up and you still cannot feel what you are doing. I am looking at these gloves for ice but if they are not going to work well???
