Very solid glove. Rugged leather in the palms and fingers where you need it. Precurved fingers really make holding ski poles effortless. I just returned from Winter Park where temp was down to -10. I had no problems with staying warm. Good dexterity. Great fit and feel. I have big hands (thick) and these fit great. Best glove I have bought.
Criticism: No idiot strap (tie a shoe string or some parachute cord to the inner loop: cheap alternative). The inner liner glove would come out when taking on and off (if your hands were damp).

Very warm. Solid consrtuction. The inner glove is great. The inner liner is a leather trimmed $50 windstopper type of glove. I like the liner by itself. When you put the goretex gauntlet shell the trouble begins.

Problems: Very big and bulky. The palm has way to much extra room. Stiff. Stiff. Stiff. I can baerly make a fist for a minute before my hand starts cramping. These are not very good for skiing. It is hard to flex your hand for any peiod of time. Dexterity is not very good.

I got them on sale and will use them for everything but skiing. I have a pair of Black Diamond Prodigys that are a better choice for skiing.

I used this for skiing and cold weather sporting events. It does not fit my face very well. The problem area is under my eyes and around my nose. There are gaps and it does not fit close. It causes my glasses to fog. The mask keeps slipping down my face. This may just be my facial anatomy (large head and face). On the plus side, it does keep your face and neck warm. I will buy another product in the future.
