Description from OR's website: "Our Alibi Gloves™ were inspired by the experiences of an OR associate and dedicated ice climber and designed based on his requests and feedback. The sticky palms, gel padding, and digit-hugging fit of these gloves allows precise tool handling when tactility is an absolute necessity. The articulated wrist support provides ease of movement and comfort for extended days. It’s no surprise these are the top ranking gloves on the ice competition circuit. "
These gloves are basically brand new. I purchased them last season as an attempt to get a more dextrous glove for climbing. Everything I read about these gloves looked perfect. I bought extra large as I typically wear, and unfortunately they fit too snug. I tried them out twice and they actually made my hands cold due to their snug fit. I think for someone who typically wears a large, they would be great. They retail for almost $90 so this would be a steal. Check out ORs website for more information.
