I thought I'de look at the reviews for my favorite pair of gloves... 1 review? and a crappy one? I love these gloves and beat the ever loving hell out of them daily- plowing with a four wheeler, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowboarding in Colorado and Wyoming. I keep these right by the door: they go first. When it gets really cold I wear a pair of under cuff Black Diamond gloves- but I mean REALLY cold, wind chills -20/ -60 air temp negative whatever. I don't like wearing an under glove but when it's that cold you really should wear a thin glove under your regulars- I just don't otherwise I'm sure these gloves would be fine. This is a great glove for working outside- chopping wood, burning brush, chainsawing and all the other regular stuff we have to do in the winter. Please don't think that these gloves are as bad or cheaply made as the person above thought- they aren't I've had mine for two or three years and they were recommended to me by a lady who works in a mountaineering shop in Jackson, WY... she bought a pair for her son.
