This is the second pair I bought (the first pair was AWESOME! So, I wanted to buy a pair for my 17 year old son).
The first pair that I bought fit very nicely.
This pair however is super big/loose around the wrist.
Not completely satisfied with the fit, but happy enough to keep them considering the weather has been pretty cold this year.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought the gloves in a size small for my 13 year old son and they were REALLY small. I usually wear a size small womens glove and they were even too small for me. The gloves went to my 10 year old son who fits perfectly in them.
I would recommend this product.

The Deep Woods color scheme appeared to me on a computer to be grayish or gray-green, but in actuallity they are a very strong forest green. For this reason I sent them back and plan on getting a black pair. Great gloves though
I would recommend this product.

I love my new Columbia gloves. I got them in the outlet at nearly half off and I like fairly compact ski gloves with good finger dexterity. The Major Altitude softshells are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Columbia!
I would recommend this product.

We ordered these gloves because of the Columbia name. My husband has had frostbite on his hands and feet. The Columbia boots solved his foot problem and he has spent a lot of time outside this winter. The gloves are AMAZING! For the first time in 33 years, he came in from shoveling after a blizzard and his hands were warm to the touch! No bulky heating pads needed! Thank you Columbia!!!!
I would recommend this product.

These replaced a very similarly styled paired of nearly new Swany/Hotfingers gloves that I lost. Pros: Build construction seems solid; fit is good; good finger articulation; new easy tighten/loosen cuff pull works with one hand, everytime. Cons: Cuff has a small diameter opening and doesn't easily allow the cuff of my jacket to fit inside snuggly as the Hotfingers did; cold
The biggest issue is the last one. These are very cold gloves. Even just walking my dogs in 25 degree temps (which is quite warm for a Maine winter day), these things are frigid. Would not buy again.
I do not recommend this product.

These gloves are super warm, fit perfectly, durable, and dry. These are sewn in a way that makes them comfortable and easy to manipulate laces and gear.
The ONLY thing I would add to them is retaining wrist straps; I had to make my own.
I would recommend this product.

I have searched for years for the perfect glove and I think I may have found them. I have used them for snow blowing, four wheeling, ice fishing; and have never had a single complaint. Personally, I will be being a few more pairs, especially at this price.
I would recommend this product.

Gloves fit well and are very warm with the omni heat. Snowboarding on a -8 cel. day in Canada I was sweating in them and had to take them off every lift up. When riding in colder conditions I expect they will be perfect. I'm just not sure weather to tuck them under or over my jacket because it's a little bulky around the wrist area. Lately I've been tucking them under and that is working well. Excellent product with good quality construction!
I would recommend this product.

Gloves are warm without being bulky. Good length and good fitting gauntlet. Nicely finished. $90 regular price is a bit steep - great value though at 50% off.

There hasn't been any wet weather to try these gloves in yet, but they really are warm, and it feel like they are reflecting the heat back to my hand s and fingers. The gauntlet style does extend considerably further over my wrists than normal gloves. I have large hands that are usually hard to fit, but these are comfortably large and easy to slip on and off.
I would recommend this product.

I took these gloves out on a Snowmobile Patrol over the weekend. These gloves handled just perfect in -30 temps that you get on a snow machine. These gloves kept my hands warm when my machine broke down and the hand warmers were not avaliable to use on the handle bars. I had to be towed back 20 miles, but my hands stayed warmed. By far, a really good purchase.
I would recommend this product.

After frostbitten fingers last month while snowblowing, I searched for below zero gloves. Checked these out and ordered them. Today another snowstorm, but after snowblowing my fingers were warm and dry! Great pair of gloves!!

These gloves are easy to pull over any cuffs you may be wearing, even if you have multiple layers. I have also been able to pull cuffs over them. They are extremely warm, and so far have enjoyed them very much.

These gloves are awesome! I know there just gloves, but the look and feel of them are just great. It doesn't hurt that my favorite color is green too....
