I bought these about 5 years ago. They are great all around gloves. I wear them to work. great for driving and I can still get things out of my coat pockets. I have used them ice climbing, winter cycling, skate skiing, back country hiking/snowboarding. They offer great protection and dexterity while on the move. If you are sitting on a chairlift your fingers will get cold, but while you are moving and generating heat these gloves are excellent.
