These are my favourite winter gloves. They are great for sports and are very durable. I use them for x-country skiing, cold weather mountain biking, shovelling the driveway etc. I have had one pair for 6 years and they are starting to show some wear but are still going. I ordered a back-up pair and some for x-mas gifts. They are a little pricey but given how long they last they are worth it. I just wish they were available in Canada. The shipping from the US adds a lot to the cost for individual orders.
