Not good in wet weather
The gloves (like all hestra gloves) are very well constructed. However, even after using the included leather treatment and some spray on wate proofing the gloves would quickly get wet. I used them for skiing only and the portion of the glove that grabbed the pole was aways wet and soon the rest of the glove would follow. So if you ski in questionable conditions (33 degrees and snowingish) in the northwest I would not recommend them. However, for drier conditions they were very warm and comfortable.
