Rated4out of5byJohn the MultisporterfromQuite Possibly THE Gloves I WantedI was looking for an all-around glove that I could use for cold morning drives to the office and winter trail runs, as well as shoveling snow and throwing a few snowballs at my kids. I wanted something versatile and lightweight, but with good drip and durability. I don't like the look of all-leather or all-fleece gloves, so that automatically narrowed my search. The main contenders were base layer gloves by Outdoor Research, and a few pairs from Columbia and Adidas. However, the REI One gloves were the only pair to combine the sporty black stretch-material shell with the grip and durability of the leather palm (nicely concealed completely inside the hand). I've only had them for a brief period of time, but I think these just might be THE gloves I was looking for. My only concern is that the quality of the materials look to leave something to be desired. I haven't had any issues yet, but I'm a bit nervous to see how they hold up after a hard winter's use. I would say, "keep them coming REI, just take the materials quality up a notch," and I'll be back for more!
