Outdoor Research – New Berry Compliant Gloves

Outdoor Research is set on releasing two new Berry compliant tactical gloves later this year.



The Stormfighter glove is designed for inclement weather protection yet allows for tactility and dexterity for weapon and tool handling. The shell is constructed from Tweave DURASTRETCH backed with Polartec Windbloc fleece, while the palm is made from durable, water-resistant goatskin leather. The Stormfighter’s pre-curved construction provides ease of articulation with no break-in period.


The Firemark glove is a US-manufactured version of the popular offshore-produced glove. The glove features PORON XRD foam padding that protects the back of the hand and a water-resistant goatskin leather palm with an ergonomically-cut reinforcement layer that provides tactility and dexterity. To insure FR performance, the Firemark features DuPont Nomex interlock knit on the back of the hand.

Both gloves will be available for purchase November 1st, 2013.

    I am excited to see more and more of their products made in the U S of A! I wish they would start producing some of their clothing in camo and make it in the US. It would be nice to see a little healthy competition with Arc’teryx’s LEAF program. A little competition would probably make things better for us consumers out there.

    Most of the LEAF line isn’t made in the US.

    The Firemark is a sweet glove. I used a pair for the last 2 years. Finally ripped uppermost seam along the left index finger. I’ll probably buy another pair when the release these Berry Compliant ones.
