I bought these for a winter vacation trip to Japan. I also had a nice pair of leather gloves with cashmere lining and they didn't keep me as warm as these gloves cause they weren't as snug and cold air would get in. These gloves were very snug which also allowed me to do many things while still wearing the gloves. However, there were still many times when I had to take them off to get things done, like opening up a map or dealing with paper, etc. These gloves are pretty comfortable but they COULD be a little more comfortable as the stitching on the palm is noticeable. All in all these gloves performed great for being so thin, lightweight and cheap.
