Great Gear: Winter sports require Gripper Gloves

By Shelby Sheehan-Bernard, McClatchy-TribuneNovember 8, 2012 

Cold-weather protection can come at a price.

You often have to sacrifice performance -- like 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.

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 fit needed for 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. A pair is $50; online at
