What happened to the Outdry gloves they did last year? Best winter climbing gloves I've ever worn!

I guess now they've started using Gore they can't use Outdry. That's the way the outdoor business works.

I've heard Outdry is particularly good for gloves.

Such a shame. They are frankly awesome! The lack of taped seams around fingers gives a really decent dexterity and they breathe well.

Odd that this kind of brand monopoly pervades.. Scarpa avoided it when they lined boots with goretex and Outdry in others (I have Outdry boots and they are awesome too)

I might be wrong on this, but I think Columbia have actually withdrawn licensing of Outdry from other brands in general so that they can keep it as their own proprietary technology. At least that was their intention at one stage though I can't see anything about it online following a quick Google.
