warm AND dry
The moisture management on these gloves is the best I have used in any piece of winter clothing.
They have never soaked through (although they are a little to warm to wear in warm spring skiing).
Sometimes a little snow will get inside the glove when I am putting them on/off, or after a big crash...it takes only minutes for the water to evaporate, and the glove remains warm. I have never seen a glove transfer water so quickly.
