Hydra Pro™ OutDry® Glove

Details

1552141

Summary

Until now, high-alpine climbing gloves forced you to choose: Do you want warmth or do you want dexterity? Now you can have both in the Hydra Pro Glove. Innovative features like wraparound construction eliminates cold spots by moving the seam away from the fingertips – which is where you need the most tactile sensation. Four-way stretch nylon construction with beefy Velcro®-closure offers a snug, sure fit while the improved pre-curved finger design is even more ergonomically attuned to the shape of your hand. Each finger’s curve – including the thumb -- has been individually engineered to conform to the way your hand articulates for a remarkably comfortable fit. On the inside, Thermal.Q™ Elite insulation keeps you hands warm and dry, shielded by two waterproofing technologies. Reinforced leather palm, thumb and forefinger. Re-engineered pull-loops sewn higher on the cuff for greater precision when pulling your gloves up snug

Rated 3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too Much Glove Getting the size right on a glove is hard thing, and no manufacturer will have a glove that will fit everyone. That being said, there's a lot of material to this glove, which is supposed to emphasize dexterity. The first thing I noticed when I stuck my hand in it is bulk and stiffness. I purchased a medium, which is typically my size, and found about 3/4 to 1/2 an inch of extra space at the end of my index finger. The well-intentioned seam-placement on the fingertips seems only to open up the fingertips and make them feel loose and boxy. At times, the excess material in the tip of the index finger puckers up on the inside. I had hoped this would replace my old Pistolero gloves, but I'm going to have to keep looking. The upshot is the OutDry laminate and construction process is very breathable, and the quality of manufacturing and materials on this glove is top-notch. My best advice to potential buyers is try the glove on before committing to it. February 28, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too cold I am writing this as my fingers are still stiff with cold (about 21 F outside). The fit in wrist cuff is very good, but my issue is with the fingers. The leather that covers the palm and the inside of the fingers lets the cold just pass right through. It was my understanding that the leather and insulation, or lack there of, was intentional to increase finger movement, but the leather is stiff and even more so when cold. On top of this, finger movement doesn't mean anything when the fingers are stiff from cold. I may even go back to my old gloves, not as wind resistant, but still warmer. February 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Ice Climbing Glove Wore these gloves for a third outing. First outing was temps in the low teens and today's outing was single digits with negative wind chills. Gloves kept my hands warm for the entire day. The second outing was a sunny day in the high twenties and with water running off the ice my hands stayed dry. The fingers are a little thick so the dexterity is compromised a little. Easy to clip into carabiners but setting anchors was difficult so I had to switch out to liners. Overall and excellent glove that did the job at keeping my hands protected. February 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good summer alpine glove... but nothing too cold. I got these gloves as a mid-weight pair for summer, relatively low elevation mountaineering/alpine climbs. It has nice grippy palms for gripping ice tools, but it lacks warmth. Even with thick liners underneath, my fingers were numb while on Mt. Hood on a 12 degree (F) day. I didn't expect them to be as warm as heavy insulated gloves, but they feel more like lightweights than mid-weights. They're advertised as offering warmth and dexterity, but I think they only offer good dexterity. I recommend them for days in the mid 20s to mid 30s and not for anything much colder, unless you tend to run warm. For those conditions, they're very good. Just not what I hoped for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not very impressed I wanted to like this glove. It has a nice fit, the palm leather is nice and seems durable after all sorts of abuse. However, my problem is with the lining and breathability. The glove seems to be in no mans land in terms of warmth versus keeping your hands dry. It's not a warm glove by any means, so if you e.g. ice climb in cold conditions (0 F or so) your hands will get cold. If warmer I find that the gloves don't breath well and my hands get sweaty quickly, and once damp/wet these gloves take forever to dry out. This is mostly due to the liner fabric, and obviously not having a separate liner you can dry out. In ideal conditions they are really nice for technical climbing as you can keep the gloves on while messing with ice screws or other climbing hardware. December 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by A frustrating glove to love. I have owned the first generation models of this glove, and it was without a doubt the best alpine/ice glove I've worn. Perfect fit, incredible resistance to even the snottiest wettest ice, bitter Canadian Rockies cold, and disgusting Pacific Northwest weather; sometimes your hands get cold but that's by virtue of the activity, not so much their construction. It seems that the current model's pattern was changed, specifically the palm. What was once a tight fit now feels clumsy with extra material (on the palm) resulting in bunching and not nearly as svelte a fit as before. I'm sure they are still incredible in terms of their performance and warmth, but the dexterity is compromised. The glove was perfect, and with a simple adjustment to the pattern it should be again. I would have rated my previous set 5 stars, or 6 if possible. December 3, 2014
