mehh-designed to fight against a tank.
I have used these on cold days here in alaska-not a fan thus far. The leather is way to stiff-these gloves are way overbuilt. They are very stiff, I have tried to break them in driving my car, cross country skiing etc-they just dont break in. I wanted them for ice climbing-but they are just to stiff
the leather is not pliable, feels "dead" for lack of a better word.
If you want a similar, almost all leather glove with exceptionally better dexterity-try the arc'teryx tactician. Way better-
