New Gloves from OR.

I've been using the OR Contact glove for a couple years now. I find it one of the best ice climbing gloves on the market. So I was pissed when they discontinued it but they did introduce a better version. The new Project glove has the same insulation, outer fabrics but now has more articulation and a Gore-tex liner.

Has anyone tried them out to see how they fit compared to the Contract gloves. Is the hand width to finger length size/ratio the same.

I have them. I usually have to squeeze into size M gloves so I bought a size L. It's much too big. I've skied with them a few times. They seem like great for climbing as you mention, great articulation and dexterity, but much to big for me to use.

I'll sell the size L if you're interested.

I have several pairs of Contact gloves. I'll keep this in mind when I need to replace them... thanks.
