These gloves are great for everyday use, especially in cold weather. They are windproof and water-resistant and have a touchscreen-compatible palm. The gloves have a snug fit and pre-curved fingers to prevent fatigue.
Outdoor Research says:
Incredible fit, warmth and weather protection built for commuter comfort.
As the name indicates, these are primarily focused on life “in the real world” and not so much for outdoor adventures; that being said, these are perfectly functional gloves for low lever routes and some winter hill walking, especially if you pair them with a thin liner glove.
The gloves are made from a stretchy weave that incorporates Gore-tex’s infinium lining, which makes them incredibly good at blocking out wind. They will also repel light rain, sleet and snow but are not fully waterproof.
The palms of the glove have an anti-slip silicon print, which provides some grip. The glove also has some touchscreen capabilities, which works for basic navigation.
The gloves have an excellent fit, with pre-curved fingers that help prevent fatigue if you wear them for extended periods.
