Just got these and put them to the test on the job (snowmaking at Snowbird) today. It was a chilly one, temps in the teens, and even when ripping around on a snowmobile my hands only got a tiny bit chilly. But, when just skiing or hiking around my hands were toasty warm. Definitely not all that waterproof, but i'm sure with a little Nikwax or something similar they'll be great. Don't think i'd make them my everyday ski glove (for that i use the greatest glove of all time, the Hestra Vertical Cut Freeride)but as a work/backup/touring pair they are great. 4 stars because i don't really like the wrist closure, but that's pretty standard for any work style glove. Overall, highly recommended, especially for the price!!
UPDATE: Staying at 4 stars, but for different reasons. 4 stars and not 5, because they just aren't quite warm enough for the really cold days, but the 4 stars are well earned by the fit, feel, and quality. I love the dexterity, the build quality and the fact that they really are warm enough for MOST days, just not all. and with a little bit of Nikwax's Creme Waterproofing Wax for Leather, they are plenty waterproof. So, if this is your price range for gloves or you're looking for a backup/work pair you'll be more than satisfied.
