Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I adore these gloves. My sport is skiing, both in and out of bounds, and we've had a really strange and wet January in Alaska this year. I took these out for six hours in the driving rain and skied hard and my hands stayed dry! They are also quite comfortable temperature-wise for the activity level I generally pursue. There's a lot of intelligent design features, they're extremely dextrous, and seriously the waterproofing is the best I've ever seen in a pair of gloves. My hands are dry in these long after my companions' are soaked. I don't use them for normal daily activities or super-cold/sedentary outdoor tasks - belaying for ice climbing or cold nights outdoors, I prefer well insulated mittens.
