This is my second pair of these gloves. The only reason I am purchased a second is because I lost the pair that I had for 4 years. No holes after 4 years of driving, pumping gas, stacking wood, sledding, skiing and winter hiking. A perfect all around glove. These work as a great under shell glove if your hands are prone to getting cold. The fit is snug so they stay on your hands when you pull your waterproof glove shell off. Totally worth every penny!
