what a fit

I have never had a glove that is so comfortable, warm, and well fitted for my hands. One thing i absolutely love about them is how much dexterity you feel, at the ends of the fingers there is not an overkill amount of material that bunches up and they still manage to keep you super warm. I have been doing mostly night skiing this season and those chairlifts can get mighty cold during night. with these my hands have never been cold or wet, and they give me enough movement to easily control my ipod.
the closure system is pretty nice as well, one easy grab synch on one side can be pulled to tighten, while the traditional squeeze can loosen (as well as a pull on the opposite side of the glove) the pulls and bracelet (so you dont drop em' ding dong!) are not cumbersome either.

In response to the comments about durability mine have been doing well so far, the only place I could guess that would break down would be on the outside of pinky or thumb, where the nose/goggle wipes are super soft leather. be careful if your a low turner who drags his hands.

I love their comfort, warmth, and fit. but i could see how people would be turned off by durability... just buy them through backcountry... a little review of their return policy should give you the piece of mind you need
