The Outdoor Research Meteor Gloves offer burly waterproof protection with removable fleece liners for long days on the snow and cold evenings at camp.
Outdoor Research says
We don’t discriminate. When we nailed the design of our versatile, warm, convertible Meteor Mitts (according to our customers), we saw no reason that glove people shouldn’t be able to share in the fun. So here they are: a removable 300-weight fleece liner with a flip-top thumb and index finger that plugs into a breathable waterproof Ventia shell with removable leash and a SuperCinch gauntlet. Same heart and soul as the mittens, just a few more digits.
Outdoor Research's Meteor Gloves feel like tough winter gloves that could stand up to any conditions from the moment you put them on. They are waterproof, breathable and have a great amount of insulation.
The Ventia waterproof shell is reliable and hard wearing and the gloves have added grip to the palm and fingers to make them more usable. The gloves have a toggle to tighten it around the forearm and a strap across the wrist. The thumb loop on the finger and removable leash makes them much easier to pull on and off.
The fleece liners are actually considerably thick gloves with index finger and thumb convertible ends to allow smart phone use and increase dexterity. They are held in place with elasticated strips while the liners are secured within the gloves with two Velcro strips. The thickness of these gloves makes them feel chunky and cumbersome if you are trying to do anything fiddly in them so bear that in mind.
