I'm very happy with these gloves. I haven't yet determined their usefulness in more extreme weather or their durability in the long run, but I have high hopes thus far.
I would recommend this product.

The gloves are pretty good. I just received them and only worn them a couple of times. A little bulky but not too tight or overly too big. I do wish the outside material was not fleece as everything sticks to them.
I would recommend this product.

It was 40 degrees with a sporadic light breeze, so I tried out these expensive new gloves. They are too thin for any real warmth in these relatively mild conditions. As far as I could tell the tiny silver dots do nothing to increase or preserve heat in cold hands. I was bothered by the large size, thickness and stiffness of the palm grip area, which also gets cold and serves to just make the hands colder. I'd recommend a much thicker fleece, a more supple grip material, and an adequate layer of insulation. Then those tiny silver dots may actually do what's promised. I'm outside dog walking 1095 times a year about 20 minutes each time. In these windy cold winters I need warm gloves. Too bad these aren't warmer at this price point.
I do not recommend this product.

I love the color and they do seem to be made very well, but they don't keep my hands warm. My hands are very cold and I have yet to find gloves that work. I had high hopes for these, but they don't do the job.
I do not recommend this product.

I ordered the size med and I think I could have gotten the small. The palm pad is way to big and is not comfortable. As far as warm they are ok. If you get a size that fits your hand maybe the palm pad would fit better. I do like the gloves and they are a great color to go with my jacket. I would recommend this product if some changes are made. The palm pad needs to be smaller and the size med. should fit a med hand. I don't have a huge hand but I would say normal for a women. The fingers are too long and they want to slide off the hand. It is not that I would not recommend these but everyone would have to try them on to see how they fit.
I do not recommend this product.

The fit and color were fine.
The material is thinner than it looks in the photo.
And, my hands were so cold inside these gloves, I took them off. Maybe they'd be okay in places that weren't as cold as minnesota in december.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought these gloves because my hands always are cold. These are great gloves if you're not outside for a long time. My palms stayed warm but my fingers got cold while shoveling.

I was well pleased with my omni-heat jacket and boots and had the same expectations for the gloves. Problem was that perhaps my hands are always cold that I wasn't giving off enough heat to make them warm. They function just like any other pair of gloves.
I do not recommend this product.

Despite reading some negative reviews, I decided to give these a try and am so glad I did! I bought a large and they fit great and keep my hands really warm - in Chicago this week we were in negative wind chills, so yeah... After showing them to two friends at work, they both immediately ordered a pair, which prompted my review. We're not big girls, but the large fit us all (we all have the Kaleidaslope II jacket in medium). Honestly, I just initially wanted them to match my coat (ha!), but if you want a warm, lightweight everyday casual glove, you'll be happy with this pair!
I would recommend this product.

This is the first pair of gloves I have ever purchased that not only fit my short fingers perfectly but also kept them warm as toast. I am so pleased with the fit, quality of workmanship and the warmth in -0 degrees that I will look to Columbia for my future winter needs. Thank you.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased these as a gift as well. Again, I expected more from Columbia. While they are lined with the Omni-heat, these gloves are very thin..just not what I had hoped for, as the rest of my Columbia gloves are all nice and thick and warm..
I do not recommend this product.

I have small hands and short fingers. It is almost impossible to find gloves that aren't too long. These are a perfect fit for me. I am not crazy about the lining and don't think they are quite as warm and they could be, that is why I am not giving them 5 stars, but over all they are a great deal.
I would recommend this product.

My mom has Rayneads disease so her fingers are very susceptible to pain when it is cold out. Her fingers often go numb and she has trouble using her hands in the cold. These are the only gloves that have helped significantly prevent her hands hurting in the cold. I would definitely recommend these to everyone! I even want to get myself a pair!

These gloves are very warm, they look bulky in the picture but they are slim fitted. A bit stiff but with time they should be more flexible.

Like the glove a lot. Still seems not to get finger tips warm. I have small hands and they fit perfect. The color happen to match the jacket I purchased. Would like to see if thin finger pads would help? Overall a nice glove we have been in the 20s most of the winter.

THE PRODUCT ITSELF IS EXCELLENT. THE COLOR (MERCURY) MATCHED THE ACCENT COLOR ON MY COLUMBIA BLAZING STAR JACKET PERFECTLY.
HOWEVER, I WAS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT IT TOOK TO PROCESS MY ORDER AND THE SHIPPING TRANSIT TIME. FOR THE $6.00 FLAT SHIPPING RATE, I EXPECTED QUICKER PROCESSING AND DELIVERY TIME.
I would recommend this product.
