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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These mittens are not work mittens. I say that as they are not mittens you should rock when climbing, skinning, running, etc. They are just too warm. They are perfect for static activity, on a bike, dirt bike, quad, snowmobile, around camp, and defiantly amazing to sleep in on cold nights. The down is amazing at keeping your heat in.

Recommendations: a passive hand warmer to "start that fire place" is super helpful with cold hands. The mittens are super light and compressible, if you have the hat; I recommend putting the mittens in the hat and compress all 3 together. Last recommendation; pack these as your back up to your work gloves/mittens. they are so light and small you will only notice them when your hands are warm!

Only down side: the space inside the mittens is minimal. This is good as you will warm up the 4 finger pocket quickly. It's a little tight if you have really big hands. In no way is this a show stopper. I have large hands (size 11) and rock the L/XL. They fit... just with minimal space.

I have used this glove for the past 3 years. I have been so impressed I just ordered a pair for my wife. The newer versions work with smart phones/touch screen. The glove is like the best soft shell you have ever tried on but for your hands. The block the wind, work well in damp conditions, and keep you fingers warm...all with outstanding dexterity.

I have used them from everything from Skydiving in the winter to shoveling my driveway. They are the one glove I cannot live without. Durability far exceeds what you would expect. OR crushing it again!
