These are great gloves. I wanted a glove that A. Could be worn under my shell glove in 20-30 degree weather (Current liners were too warm for skiing/snowshoeing).
B. Would at least resist snow and wind if worn alone.
These gloves fit that description. The powerstretch wicks like magic, keeping hands dry on the way down the mountain and therefore warm on the lift ride back up. They offer great feel, and you can do almost anything with them on (type, change cd in car, etc). Wind and dry snow stay outside, but prolonged snowball fights, snowman building, etc will make them soak through. The great "sticky" surface of the leather palm loses it's stick the first time they get wet. Overall the gloves are warm and well made.
