Price Paid: 75$
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.

Ice climbers and winter mountaineers: despite the fact that you're wearing the Outdoor Research Alibi II Glove as you scale up a 100ft frozen waterfall, there's still no excuse for busting out that refrain when you reach the top. If you aren't familiar with what refrain we're talking about, all the better. Updated but not changed, the Alibi II features an articulating wrist harness secured with a leather cuff closure. Softshell finger sidewalls and pre-curved construction provide a custom-like fit for total dexterity and easy tool maneuvering. The Pittards Oiltac leather palm gives you a firm hold on your tools or the pitch, whether it's bone dry and cold or a bit wetter than preferred.
