Outdoor Research Afterburners work!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I did my first field test of these gloves in 8F with a wind chill of -20F. The conditions were dry so I could not test the waterproofness. I used these for XC skiing and had a couple of cold fingers on my left hand about the first half an hour out. After an hour all my fingers stayed toasty. The wicking was good too. It was too cold to take pictures out in the field but i did test the connectivity by using my Smartphone outside just before getting into the car. It worked beautifully! The fit is great. I am a woman with fairly long fingers and I bought men's medium. They seem well made
