At first, it might come as a surprise that you can buy a credible high-altitude mountaineering glove system for a price like this. But that's exactly what the Outdoor Designs Ultraflex Inferno Glove is. In fact, it's two very capable gloves in one. The inner glove is made of a softshell textile and is insulated with high-quality Primaloft insulation, with a grippy silicone pattern on the palm. The outer shell is also insulated and includes a premium eVent waterproof membrane, so you can wear it without the liner and stay dry in warmer, wetter conditions. The palm is made of Pittards Amortan leather (some of the best leather that you can get for gloves) with extra reinforcement in the thumb crotch area for rope handling, and there is an additional patch of Pittards leather on the back of the hand as well. Carabiner loops on the fingers and idiot cords on the gauntlets keep your gloves accessible during the ascent, while ensuring that you won't drop them.
THE BOTTOM LINE: With a laundry list of premium ingredients at a not-so-premium price, the Ultraflex Inferno gloves are ready for the big mountains of the world.
