Good glove. It is easy to close the hand and the pad on the pinky helps prevent sores from the hand rest on the tool. Sticks on the tool like crazy. Glove not really warm but it is not what I was looking for this kind of climbing. I took a large and fits me well except for the thumb that is too long for me. Used these gloves for two days of climbing and the red lines on the palm are already coming off with its thin shiny film.
Good glove but not sure about durability.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
When you're hanging onto a frozen waterfall by a couple of pieces of metal, you want all the grip and comfortable dexterity you can get. The Outdoor Research Alpine Alibi II Glove is purpose-built for ice climbing and doesn't compromise anything in the pursuit. For weather protection it has a waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex insert with X-trafit technology and a nylon stretch soft shell exterior. Pittards Oiltac goat leather palm and fingers provide supple, durable grip. Inside this bomber glove is efficient, toasty-warm PrimaLoft One fleece insulation and a wool palm lining. An internal gusset increases mobility, and SuperCinch gauntlet seals out the elements. There's a removable Idiot Cord for added security when you're feeling less sharp. A climbing glove isn't a climbing glove unless it has more than comfy weather protection. This glove has a carabiner loop, nose wipe, gel padding on outside edge, foam panels on back, and precurved construction for added mobility. Protection, comfort, fit, and dexterity--this glove makes no compromise.
