Customize your level of protection for varied conditions.

It's no fun to have overly clammy hands or frozen fingers, and this versatile glove makes it easy to customize your level of protection for optimal comfort. The Outdoor Research Women's Arete Glove uses a versatile layering concept to provide the appropriate level of hand protection in varying conditions. When conditions are frigid or foul, the nylon shell with a waterproof and windproof Gore-Tex membrane protects against moisture and windchill, and the polyester fleece liner provides insulating warmth and moisture-wicking comfort. If conditions are less extreme and/or you're working up a sweat while engaging in higher-intensity activities, you can wear the removable fleece liner by itself—its silicone palm provides plenty of grip to use effectively with poles and tools. You can also wear the shell glove by itself if you don't need the added fleece insulation, but could benefit from waterproof, windproof protection. The shell features a pre-curved construction which facilitates a more ergonomic fit and freer movement, and the gauntlet closure system makes it quick and easy to cinch down or pull open the cuff.

good quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are a great all-around pair of gloves. They keep my hands warm in most conditions (usually below 15 degrees F is where I start to get chilly), and they're true to size. Very happy with the quality as well.

Great review - thank you so much Monika!

    I gave these to my girlfriend for her first season of skiing. She really likes the flexibility afforded by the separate liners but her hands do sometimes get cold. And it would be cool if the liner was touch screen compatible.

    Thank you Aaron!

    My hands are always the first things to get cold, but these gloves keep my hands toasty ! I love the insert that comes with these gloves. On warmer days I can wear the inserts cross country skiing or snow shoeing.
    I feel I have small hands, but I bought the medium which fit perfect as I like a little room. Nice looking gloves and warm too !

    Thank you so much for the review!

    Happy Trails,

    I agree with the review by UMICHENG. I have worn these gloves only a couple times and there is already fraying around the fingers on the inside of the hand. The gloves are warm and water-proof, but when it comes to wearing them while using your hands to do things they wear very easily. I bought these for alpine climbing and they definitely don't stand up very well to handling a rope.

    These gloves are exactly what I was looking for. It can be hard to find gloves that keep my hands as warm as I want. I just can't wear mittens. These come with an awesome liner that Velcros inside. Which is ideal for using your phone or adjusting any of your gear on the lift! Reach out if you need help with sizing.

    Thank you Jennifer!

    Nice gloves but not durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like these gloves. I got them for the gauntlet and the gore-tex waterproof material. However, the outer material is not very durable. Carrying my board to boot pack, etc has made them fray quite easily within the first few times of wearing them.

    Hi there, I am surprised about the review, but want to assure you not to worry about the fray. Plus, are you aware that Outdoor Research backs their product 100%? Even if these gloves have a bigger issue down the road, OR will send you a NEW PAIR of gloves. No questions!

    Keep me posted about how these wear with more use.
