Outdoor Research Stormtracker Heated Gloves

“These are light and flexible enough to climb in, and then as soon as I untie, I tap on the heat and have maximum comfort and coziness for chilly belays,” one tester said of these Gore Windstopper gloves with ALTIHeat technology. A 94% nylon and 6% spandex shell gives maximum range of motion and dexterity, while a goat-leather palm gripped ice tool handles and the rope when belaying. Low, medium, and high heat settings fit a range of tastes and winter temps. The extra-large loop made these easy to pull on over multiple layers on the wrist. They won’t replace expedition-level mitts, but they’re excellent for days at the crag. Each glove has a slim lithium-ion battery in the cuff and lasts a full day with intermittent use.
