The Overdrive Convertible is a knit base layer glove with an added slip-on soft shell mitt, complete with a water-resistant stretchy, windproof fabric.
Outdoor Research says: We know from years of climbing in soft shell jackets that sometimes all it takes to stay warm is a layer of the right material. We applied that idea to the Overdrive Convertible Gloves, with a 3-layer 4-way water-resistant stretch soft shell mitt that slips over a knit glove. The windproof overmitt includes the thumb, and tucks away into the wrist when you’re not using it.
The Outdoor Research Overdrive Convertible Gloves are perfect for changeable conditions. The 'inner' gloves are light and super breathable making them perfect for running and other high intensity activities. They are luminous yellow in colour providing excellent a highly visible glove for those dark nights.
The 'outer' mitt part of the Overdrive can be tucked into the wrist of the gloves with ease and despite it looking a bit lumpy it's hardly noticeable when you wear them. When the weather changes the 'outer' mitt can be pulled out and cover the thumb and fingers. There material used for the mitt is windproof and waterproof but these gloves can't claim to be waterproof as the palms of the 'inner' glove are exposed allowing water in.
These convertible gloves are an awesome product, providing a high level of protection from the elements when you need it while also being highly breathable and quick drying for delivering top performances all at a surprisingly low weight.
