If you havent tried this fabric yet, you are in for a treat. Easily the pair of gloves I get the most compliments on, they are soft and warm. They are great for activities like cold weather trail running, biking, or Nordic skiing. I use mine a lot for around town stuff like grocery shopping and café hopping in addition to the above-mentioned activities. They have ribbed rubber fingertips that offer more grip than a fleece glove would normally give you. If you need something with more snow shedding ability you might want to consider the Gripper Glove.
