A friend said tonight is like Christmas Eve. A big storm is brewing, and town is anxiously awaiting the snow (unlike the last “sleeper” storm). But something seemed not quite holiday worthy about this alone. My sister used to always insist we got to open one gift on Christmas Eve growing up. Little jump on the excitement of the next day. Well, to keep with tradition my new OR Omni Gloves showed up today. Merry Christmas indeed.
I’ve been a huge fan of these gloves for the last couple seasons. They are my go to skinning gloves. Spring backcountry skiing gloves. Biking in the rain gloves. Waxing skis in the garage gloves. Working on the car in the fall gloves. Driving through winter storm gloves. You get the idea.
These wind-resistant, stretchy, fleece gloves (made with Polartec Wind Pro) have a few upgrades this season that I’m excited about. There’s a more streamlined fit to keep the previously loose fitting fingers from snagging small metal edges (ski bindings, chainrings, bolts ends). They also added a large loop of cord on the cuff for easy clipping to your pack or pants when you don’t need the gloves on, but want them quickly accessible.
Here’s to Santa delivering the goods tomorrow as well! (Oh, and speaking of holidays, the glow-in-the-dark palm is perhaps a perfect Halloween accessory.)
