Hey Folks! We hope you’ve been getting out and enjoying some early season ice this weekend! Winter has finally hit here in the Mount Washington Valley and we are welcoming it with open arms!

This morning we wanted to give you a sneak peak on one of the items Outdoor Research is going to have for you to demo at this year’s Ice Fest. The Alpine Alibi II Glove has been completely re-designed and updated to make it the ideal glove for those long, cold climbing days. The gloves “combine dexterity and grip with serious warmth and protection.” They are the perfect marriage of weather resistant soft shell fabric, waterproof yet breathable GORE-TEX® fabric, PrimaLoft One® for warmth on the coldest days and Pittards® Armortan® leather on the palm for maximum dexterity and grip even when they’re wet.

Outdoor Research’s Alpine Alibi II Glove

The Alpine Alibi II is one of the best ice/alpine climbing gloves on the market right now. Make sure you stop by the Outdoor Research booth and try them out! You won’t regret it.
