Outdoors Gear: Winter sports require Gripper Gloves

Posted Nov. 14, 2012, at 3:29 p.m.

Cold-weather protection can come at a price. You often have to sacrifice performance — such as the ability to grab things — for warmth. But Outdoor Research Men’s Gripper Gloves are a different breed.

These multipurpose gloves are made from an insulating fleece that resists wind to keep you warm with a specially designed palm for a slip-free grip. So with the Gripper Gloves, you can keep your hands both toasty and functional whether you’re hiking, biking or just trying to handle your keys.

The glove is made from 100 percent polyester laminated fleece, which is self-wicking, breathable and quick-drying in moderate moisture levels. In addition to its high-performance material, the Gripper Gloves also feature an anatomical design with a tapered wrist. This ensures the good fit that’s needed for both winter sports and everyday use.

These gloves also include Outdoor Research’s lifetime product guarantee, which allows customers to exchange or return the product at any time if they’re not satisfied with the purchase.

The Men’s Gripper Gloves are available in three colors: black, brown with black accent and gray/green with black accent. Its price is $50. You can purchase them at outdoorresearch.com.
