Reviews - Outdoor Research Men's Arete Gloves
Good gloves for the price
I have skied with these gloves now ~3 days. Today was ~0F and fairly deep powder. All three days, my hands initially got cold, then as my blood starts pumping, they warm up nicely & stay warm and dry. I like the long gauntlet on the cuff and the mechanism employed for cinching down & releasing the cuff (one-handed operation). The removable liner is held in place by two opposed velcro strips that allows easy & sure hand insertion (the older models I had didn't have these & lead to slipping the hand into the glove outside the liner). The glove sizing is close to accurate as I have a size large hand, but ordered extra large for allowing useage of other, heavier fleece inserts if neccessary. The current liners leave a roomy feel to the glove fit - maybe that's why my hand is cold initially. Bottom line - good, warm glove for a decent price.
Great for Skiers!
I have been searching for a good pair of gloves for a while now, and the last gloves I bought at the same price didn't have liners and soaked through after a few uses. These gloves come with liners, a long cuff to keep out the snow, and velcro to make sure you don't lose the liners. I also like the method for keeping your gloves attached to the wrist.
OR. Arete glove
When I hike in deep mountain in winter season, the most important piece of gear is glove. No question about it. When it is cold, hands get cold first. It is warm and gortex fabric made. It is 100% watrerproof, no moisture comes in. Absolutely perfect, but it is a little big for my hand.
