roy kwrote a review of Arc'teryx Alpha SL Glove on December 4, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Took a pair of these out on multi-week trip during Oct - Nov.
My hands run warm and I found them to be just right for the 15-25 degree temps encountered, all while providing great dexterity for manipulating ropes and handling tools. The leather feels almost tacky on rocks and ice and I really liked how there's nearly no slip between the gloves and my palms.
The leather does wet out though and my biggest gripe is that they'll bleed dye all over your hands when they do. I spent at least 5 days with blue/black palms, eating blue/black sandwiches and left blue/black prints all over my otherwise brightly colored gear.
I'd recommend hand washing these once or twice before taking them out.
