/ Outdoor Research Vert gloves new vs. old version
I tried on but foolishly didn't buy a pair of the old Vert gloves, just before they became unobtainable. I ended up with, and have been very happy with, Mountain Equipment Super Alpine Gloves for UK winter climbing.
Just from looking at pics of the new Verts, I'd worry about that reinforcement too and maybe the ME Super Alpines are closer to the old Verts.
It would be interesting from somebody who has actually used all three.
The super alpines fit almost the same as the outdoor research gloves, a little bit wider if anything but nothing major, and the sizing seems consistent as opposed to most other brands.
P.s. Talking about size M. Not a clue if the same is true with other sizes
P.p.s. And there's a new version out of them, so can't say for those either.
This isn't being very helpful in hindsight...
