These are great gloves for the price. They keep the wind and cold off, and repel water pretty well. The only problem I found is the lack of dexterity, however they are pretty warm!
Disclaimer: I tested these gloves for gore.
Second pair of these and still do a great job. Have them in black as well and just as good. Size is a little tight upfront but the pack out a bit and the picture doesn't do the color justice; "wren" equals green
These gloves are really good as a start out glove, until things get really nasty. Takes bite out of wind, but doesnt get you too hot like a shell. They are good for inside mittens or as glove liners as well.
I love these gloves. I use them a lot for biking, but they are in pack for almost all the time for almost everything during the fall, winter and spring.
Very windproof - I use them for bike rides year round, sometimes even in -10F weather for just a mile or two. Combined with a windstopper jacket or a down, commuting or riding around town or riding to campus is easy.
These gloves are also quite durable. When I'm not using them for cold weather biking, I throw them in the pack for all kinds of hiking or mountaineering. So far everything has held up fine.
I would not use these as a substitute for a waterproof glove, but in a bind they will keep your hands dry for a while while performing various activities (snowball fights, maybe building a snow fort).
These gloves are also super versatile. A good amount of dexterity makes them useful for many situations.
After a few years the finger grips have worn down slightly due to normal, almost daily use.
I wore these gloves while elk hunting up in the Cascade Mountains for a week. Every day it rained, snowed, or hailed on me, but my hands stayed warm and dry through it all.
I love these gloves. I had the women's pair, but lost one of them while I was out hiking. I was so disappointed because they aren't cheap! so as winter rolled around again, I decided I couldn't live without them. so I bought another pair, a size smaller, in men's. I like the men version because the wrist is wider. that was my only gripe with the women's pair was the wrist size was small making them hard to get on and off. they are super warm, durable, wind stopper, and a perfect all around glove for snowshoeing, shoveling snow, and everyday use for battling the cold in colorado. I have not had any regrets spending a little more money for these gloves. they are perfect. and spend a significant amount of time on my hands in the winter!
If you end up with this glove you will likely not be disappointed, but if given a choice I don't see why you would purchase this model over the BD stormweight. This one is bulkier (worse dexterity) and lacks the palm reinforcement. Wind blockage between the two models is close enough to be even in my book.
I actually have the BD Jetstream which, as far as I can tell, is exactly the same. This will keep your hands surprisingly warm and block the wind well - way warmer than Mountain Hardwear Power Stretch. After 3 months durability seems excellent. Dexterity is medium. Will feel stiff at first but after a breaking in feel perfect. Not sure I would pay $40 - but its a high quality glove.
Just used these on three peaks in Bolivia. They worked well for all conditions they are designed for. It is easy to grab and hold things with them, and they are warm and wind proof. When it got really cold I had to put on the mitts-they were a tad thick to use inside the mittens.
When it gets in the negatives, it's nice to have a glove that still has some dexterity and grip, this glove does that nicely. When doing heavy aerobic activities, this glove gets too hot and doesn't wick sweat away that well. It works great for skiing, especially if you have a hardshell mitten for backup.
Conditions: Humidity 52%, Wind N 17 MPH w/gusts to 21 MPH or so, Wind chill 7 deg. F., Temp 21 deg. F., Fair to partly cloudy.
Activity: brisk 45 minute to 1 hour walk.
Geography: N. Texas plains, nothing to block the wind except for the occasional house.
My hands measures 8 inches. In the men's large there was very little extra room to spare, pretty much a perfect fit. The seams inside the fingers of the gloves are large but livable (thus the 4 stars instead of 5). During my walk my hands stayed quite warm and the mild wind never got through these gloves. I have also used them in conditions where the wind was gusting to 30+ MPH with the temperature in the upper 30's to low 40's and was pleased with their performance as well. If the seams inside the gloves were just a bit more flattened out I would rate them 5 stars. In spite of this I would purchase this product again.
