Note the extended cuff length giving them a gauntlet sort of feel. Outdoor Research has put a lot of thought into the redesign of their Lodestar Sensor gloves… Full review
Dorfman Pacific G809 Ski Glove
While probably not the glove for the hardcore skier, the Dorfman Pacific G809 Ski Glove is a surprisingly good deal. It is a solid glove for those who only occasionally venture out into winter activities and do not want to spend a fortune on occasional-use gloves. The Dorfman Pacific Company is known for hats, not gloves. I would not have even known about these gloves, except that when my wife and I went to Rocky Mountain National Park last October, I forgot to pack gloves. A local gear shop in… Full review
Chaos CTR Stealth Heater Glove
Glove liner that can add warmth to any outdoor glove. Packs up very small. Another Chaos CTR (Chaos Thermal Regulation) product that is always in my ski jacket pocket is a pair of the CTR Stealth Heater gloves liners. The glove is comprised of a warm stretchy fabric blend of 61% Polyester 33% Rayon (Viloft) 6% Elastane. A stretch knit cuff with a pull-on tab keeps the cold out and the warmth in. I find these gloves work well alone in temperatures into the 40s and add about 10 degrees of comfort… Full review

Fox River PrimaHike Socks
Warm, medium weight hiking socks with an anatomical fit. Primaloft and Merino wool for a great feel. Available in two heights.
