The Men's BackStop Gloves by Outdoor Research. The BackStop Glovesare the ultimate high-energy liners, strategically designed to provide maximum wind protection as well as high breathability. With a Windstopper lining across the back of the hand, you'll be protected from stormy gusts when gripping poles or on a winter trail run. But, with higly breathable Radiant Fleece construction on the palm, heat and moisture that builds from the exertion will quickly escape leaving your hands protected, dry, and comfortable.
Best for fast-paced activities on dry days, the Outdoor Research’s BackStop Gloves provide full wind protection with a WINDSTOPPER liner tucked into a soft 100-weight fleece. A soft, moisture-wicking interior pulls sweat away to prevent clammy hands and silicone prints on the glove exterior provide abrasion resistance and grip.

I noticed that there is a different version of this glove; without the Windstopper membrane...don't go for it. I have this version, with the Windstopper on the upper hand, and it is crucial.
I have used these gloves for quite cold mid-Fall hikes, climbs, and just hanging out at camp when it is too cold for no gloves. They handle a small cigar well. I would not trade in that Windstopper for anything... essential for winter.
Highly recommended to a friend, as well as anything OR makes pretty much
I have worn these daily for about a month and a half now, the gripper material is slowly coming off from very light use such as driving or using railing on stairs. I wish the gripper stuff was on all of the fingers. These gloves are fitting and windproof for Western Washington weather. Going to test them in colder weather, snowshoeing soon. They are perfect size for small tasks where dexterity is needed. Sizing seems standard.
