I ordered one size up because of other reviews on this site, and it made all the difference. They're awesome gloves, they can keep you're hands warm and perfectly dry in virtually any contions, but for whatever reason they are definitely made one size too small. Seriously, order one size up and you'll be glad you did. Unless you just really love making returns & exchanges or something. Okay, enough of the sizing. The outer glove is fully taped gore-tex, so your hands literally cannot get wet through these things, and the leather palms and fingers give you some nice dexterity and grip provided the style of the gloves. The interchangeable liners are a nice feature for riding in varied temperatures. They come with a polatec fleece liner with primaloft on the back of the hand, for colder condtions, and a pair of smaller, plain glove liners for not-so-cold days. The smaller ones have nice rubber grip on the palms so they're perfect for when you need to make a call or something on the lift but don't want your fingers to turn to icicles.
