Hiking uphill is hard work, and so we often find ourselves stripping off layers during the ascent, even in cold conditions. The trouble is that wind can steal all that heat that we generate in a hurry, so you've got to the find the right balance - not being so insulated that you overheat, and not being so unprotected from wind that you get chilled immediately after de-layering. This is especially true for your hands, so the Outdoor Research Backstop Gloves are here to help you strike that balance.
