Some initial impressions
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Upon receiving these gloves, my initial impressions were that they looked awesome, and I liked the leather reinforcement in the palm. They are definitely thicker than I expected and don't have great dexterity, but they seem to be plenty warm. The leather feels great out of the box.
After using these on a few cold days, I like this glove. They're definitely nice and warm, and the waterproofing does an ok job. The re-enforced areas tend to soak up water and transfer it to the rest of the glove pretty quick, but this isn't a big deal unless you are digging/falling a lot. Looks like some sno-seal will do the trick. Like some other reviewers have said, it's not the best glove for a huge storm day or a super cold day, but as an average day glove in the Wasatch it does the trick. Overall a four-star glove.
