The Outdoor Research Olympus Sensor offers among the highest overall level of warmth among any glove in our review, with a touchscreen-enabled thumb and index finger. We tested this function by using smartphones in a wide variety of conditions, ranging from cold to extremely wet. The Olympus Sensor touchscreen functions extremely well and often functioned better than our bare hand when used in colder conditions. These gloves also performed very well in our water resistance tests, making them an excellent choice for stormy or close-to-freezing conditions. The only category that the Olympus Sensor didn't excel in was dexterity. While our testers were able to complete simple tasks, such as buckling boots or opening a locked car door, tasks that required more precision, such as zipping a jacket, picking up a pencil or signing our name, were more difficult. The Olympus Sensor didn't offer poor dexterity, but their performance was not on par with most of the models we tested.
These gloves have been discontinued, though they can still be found at some online retailers. Make sure to snag a pair before they're gone!
