Reviews - Outdoor Research Men's Omni Gloves
Fits like a glove!
Outdoor Research gloves are pretty much the only gloves I've tried that fit my hands perfectly. These are nice mid-weight liners, a little thicker than my old PL-150 liners. The seams on the inside aren't flat like the PL gloves, so it'll take some time to wear them in, but it's not a big deal. They have a nice rubberized camo print on the palms that also glows in the dark.
good for pocket gloves
The other reviews nare quite accurate. I'd just add that they are a good pair to keep in my pocket for when i need driving gloves or for short periods outside. Negatives are that I can feel the wind through them and I can the raised internal seams but the arent abrasive. I do like the glow in the dark rubberized grips and the pull-on loops.
OR Omni Gloves
I recently picked up a pair of these gloves prior to a weeklong ski/snowshoe trip. I planned to use them both as a liner under warmer gloves and/or under waterproof shell mitts on cold or wet days and as a stand-alone glove on nicer days. The weather ended up not dictating a need for shells or layering, so I just used them by themselves for all of my snowshoeing and general hanging out outside. The gloves were plenty warm for me in temps ranging from the low 40s down into the low 20s (I didn't get a chance to take them lower for any extended period of time). They also turned out to be decently windproof. They don't seem to hold much moisture and they dry quickly, so that's a plus! The fit was just about perfect for me (I tend to be about a perfect medium). The gloves have a slight bit of stretch, but not much, so getting the right size is important. The glow in the dark grip treatment to the palms works... they definitely glow bright green in the dark but the grippy patterned treatment doesn't hold up real well. On multiple fingers, I find that pieces of the grippy stuff have pealed or are pealing off. I'm not sure how important the grip treatment is to me yet, so I'm going to keep using them and see what happens as (I assume) more of the grip delaminates. Overall, though, the gloves have exceeded my expectations.
