These gloves fit a little snug around ends of fingers, particularly between thumb and index finger. At or about near freezing temperature, the gloves did not keep fingers warm. My friend, who also purchased the exact pair, experienced the same snugness and cold fingers. I expected better results from these gloves.
I do not recommend this product.

I was glad I got a size up, they seemed a little small. Other than that, great gloves. They're a very dark blue, just like the picture shows!
I would recommend this product.

I was actually surprised that I needed the liners when it was only 28 Farenheit. Then with the liners, my fingers were okay but the very tips still got cold a little. Wouldn't use these in 'teens' temperatures. Very comfortable fit though and nice to use.
I do not recommend this product.

Nicely made and a good fit, but maybe it's my poor circulation but even with the Liner, my fingers still froze. I'd recommend a Mitten for the very cold.
I do not recommend this product.

First time I ordered a large, but the gloves were small because of the inner lining. So I ended up ordering a x-large, which fit perfectly. The return was easy and quick.
Overall the gloves are very well made and comfortable. I used the gloves for a week long ski trip and it kept my hands warm. The little things such as the webbing straps made using the gloves very pleasant and comfortable to use. I would definitely recommend these gloves.
I would recommend this product.

I believe the sizing chart indicated medium, but I'm 6'1"" and thought large would be a better choice. The gloves fit perfect, except that I find the pinky finger to be very tight. I don't know if this is on purpose, but it takes some effort sometimes to work my pinky into the glove.
They have kept me very warm this winter and stayed toasty and dry out in the blizzard this weekend.
The double cinch is a nice feature, it kept out the snow and made it easier to slide them up inside my jacket sleeves.
I would recommend this product.

Fingers fit great but thumb was a little restricted by the design of the glove. Used these gloves skiing in Colorado and tested their limitations. Gloves performed well down to 5 degree F. When I reached the high elevations at 13,000 ft at +/- -10 degree F my fingers and hands were very cold.
I would recommend this product.

These gloves are very well made. I love the tightening straps that cinch the glove on your wrist and over your coat sleeves. Excellent product.

I bought these gloves for my husband to wear for light activity. He is really happy with them. He tried them out for cross country skiing because they are light and comfortable, and discovered they breathe well so his hands stayed dry inside. He loves them for snowblowing in colorado since they are warm and waterproof. They only situation that they didn't perform as well in was when we took the dogs for a long walk in below zero weather in Minnesota. His fingers got a little cold, but that's a tough test for any glove. He's still really happy with them because they are a lot more versatile and warm than he expected.
I would recommend this product.
