SS21wrote a review of Outdoor Research Overdrive Convertible Glove on January 28, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got these gloves to replace a light pair of running gloves (from a different company) I had for years. These have excited my expectations and left me wondering how OR keeps crushing it with every glove I get from them. These gloves were bought for running but I keep packing them on everything from back country trips and ice climbing to Snowmobiling and walking the dog!
Pros: The under glove is super light weight and provides outstanding dexterity while keeping your hands from overheating. The over mitten is warmer and allows you to layer down when warm or moving and layer up when stopped or temps start to drop. I got the Gray and Yellow version for some added visibility for running in the winter with shorter days. This is the perfect weight glove for activities in cold weather.
Cons: I like the high vis options but wish the bright under glove was matched with a black mitten. Also I wish there were grips on the underglove to help keep a hold of things.
Recommendations: Just one small tip; the top of the wrist acts as a pouch for the mitten when not in use. With the mitten extended or with mitten in the pouch I use that space for gels (and trash from the gels). It actually works really well and cleans up fast.
