I ordered the mediums to begin with and they were to big. Then I returned them for the small one's. They are to big too. I like the gloves but they are too big. I think you might want to rethink how they are sized.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these for my fiance since he was in desparate need of gloves since last winter! They fit him well and he loves them, his only complaint is that the tag is a bit annoying on the inside. I would definitely recommend this item.

I use these to ski in at 28 degrees F & up. I have worn them to hunt birds at 4 degrees F. They are warm, fit well and durable. The weight allows for good dexterity. I keep mine available for every time I leave the house in cold weather.
I would recommend this product.

Decent mid-weight glove for temps in the 25-40 degree range; moderate winds. Black grippy material feels stiff in the palm of your hands; wish for a softer solution; feels somehow intrusive. But after a bit, you get use to it though. Overall, good for keeping the cold off your skin.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered 1 pair of these gloves to use while cleaning the snow off my driveway. When they arrived, I found that Columbia had sent me not one but three pair. I sent them an e-mail stating that I would be happy to pay the additional $60.00 for the other two pair. No response from Columbia means I got a big bonus! Anyway, the gloves keep my hands very warm and I would recommend them. My brother's gonna get a nice pair of free gloves.
Thanks, Columbia!
I would recommend this product.

I purchased a pair of these same gloves about 15 years ago, needless to say I got my moneys worth and loved them. The new style is simaler, they are nice, however, I am still trying to decide if I like the silver stuff that lines the inside. The old style had the same material inside as was outside. It almost feels like the silver stuff is going to start sluffing off like glitter or something, however, it has not done that yet. I need more time to really decide if I am sold on the new silver lining or not. Perhaps it's purpose and function will outweigh its strangeness.
I would recommend this product.

I'm a fan of your clothing line, but unfortunately the men's thermonater gloves which I purchased hoping for warmth, are simply not warm. Disappointed.

I have always gotten much cheaper gloves and they all work ok. I wanted something that was going to be better and worth the spent money.
I have the Omni Heat jacket and it is amazing, so I thought that I would invest in the gloves. They are bad.
1) they do not block any wind at all. The slightest bit will freeze your hands when it is below zero.
2) The gloves only work when your hand are already warm. If you start with cold hands, forget about it. The material will actually draw whatever heat you have out of them.
3) For some reason, the thumb is really long. At first i thought maybe it was just me, but my sister and co-worker got the same gloves and they have issues with the thumb being really long as well. If you measure it, it is the same length as the rest of the fingers which is just odd.
I do not recommend this product.

Gloves are very good for the price. However I am disappointed that I was unable to replace my old gloves with the same thing. When I searched for the replacement it was no longer available

I purchased the Thermarator gloves, along with the Thermarator headring, to coordinate with the Steens Mountain Full Zip fleece jacket that I gave to my husband for Christmas, and he is pleased with all three items! He said that he can feel the warmth on his hands as soon as he places them inside the gloves, and his ears stay toasty warm under the headring, as well. After reading some of the other reviews for the gloves, I decided to purchase size XL, since some reviewers were stating that the gloves seemed to run a bit small, and the XL fit my husband perfectly! All items are made of high-quality materials, and are a good value for the price!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered the Thermarator gloves in the abyss color.
I love the color and workmanship of this glove, the problem for me is that the gloves were a little too big. I ordered the men's small, but the gloves were somewhat loose and the thumb is way too long by about an inch. The rest of the fingers are ok. I might have to return these for a women's medium size.
The black rubber palm allows for a good grip on the steering wheel when driving, but it feels a bit awkward.
As for warmth, I expected a little more warmth since the coats and a beanie that I have are very warm.
Overall it's a nice glove, but not spectacular.
I would recommend this product.

Nice comfortable gloves but they are pretty light and wont keep you too warm. Good for very active work. They are fleece so best for dry conditions.

The fit and workmanship is good. However, the material in the palm of each glove is a bit stiff, and annoying. Also, when used during a half hour period of snow shoveling I found that my hands got very cold. Seem best for driving use only.
I do not recommend this product.

I have used these gloves on cold weather backpacking trips in North Carolina for several years (sometimes into the 20's). I am always impressed with how warm these gloves are - the omni-heat is great! My hands have been warm on trips where all of my buddies complained about cold hands - even when they had "heavier" gloves than me.
I would recommend this product.

For the most part the gloves work, they are not wind or waterproof, so if they get wet or it is windy the gloves are not as effective.
