We are taking a look at the Outdoor Research
Alibi II Gloves. These are an extremely technical glove. You have got a lot of different materials
in play to deliver a lot of dexter-ity and a lot of grip for those alpine pursuits. They
are perfect for ice climbing or for any-one who is looking for a technical glove to use
in the outdoors in cold temperatures. So first things first, the materials here
are just the standout feature. They are really smart. They are using different materials
in different parts of the glove that just deliver a lot of performance. So you have
got, starting up here at the wrist, you have got neoprene. It is really stretchy in there.
It is a really great material. You are able to cinch it down with a little bit of Velcro
there. So you have some adjustability there in the wrist. There is a real-ly nice pull
tab so when you put these gloves on you can really get a nice fit. They are supposed to
fit pretty tight to the hand, so they have got lots of stretch all throughout. You have
got corded nylon on the top of the hand here and that just gives you a lot of durability.
So against hardware, against ropes, against rock, that is really going to give you a lot
of durability up there and it does have a little bit of stretch as well. You have got soft shell at the fingers so
it is a stretchy soft shell material. It gives you a lot of dexterity. And, as you can see
from the glove that I don’t have on my hands, it is already hand shaped. So it has already
go the shape of a finger. These are just really stretchy and really form fitting to your hand.
So it makes them really comfortable there for really good dexterity. You have got leather
on the palm. It is really high quality leath-er. It is going to last a long time and you have
got some extra durability there in some cer-tain spots that are going to wear out a little
bit quicker, so really durable, a lot of grip on that palm as well. So when you are grabbing
for ropes, when you are grabbing for gear, you are going to have a really secure hold. And you have got polyester spandex soft shell.
In between the fingers you have got really stretchy material as well. So these are just
a really well rounded glove. They are going to provide the protection that you need when
you are in those cold temperatures, when you are against snow and ice and you need something
that is not bulky, but that is going to give you all the protection you need and something
that is just… has a lot of grip and a lot of dexterity. They are the Outdoor Research
Alibi II Gloves.
