This glove is extremely thin. For the price I paid, I was expecting something more substantial, something that would keep me warm while snowshoeing or on the ski slopes. However, this glove couldn't even perform on a quick walk through my neighborhood in 40 degree weather. My hands were cold. This seemed like it was going to be the nicest glove that Columbia had to offer, so I'll be looking elsewhere to keep my hands warm.
On the upside, the construction of the glove was good, and it would be better than nothing. Just not what I was expecting.
I do not recommend this product.

These gloves look nice, but are certainly not worth the price. They fit a bit large, and there is way too much additional material past the fingers, which gives you less feel/control. We were in conditions just slightly below freezing and they didn't keep hands warm at all. When doubled with a thin glove inside the glove they were a bit better at retaining heat. These are way overpriced at $145 and not a wise purchase at half that price. They are really good looking and well constructed, however.
I do not recommend this product.
