Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just got my second pair. The loft in the pair I bought in 2009 had compressed and they weren't holding up to the coldest days. Granted, they probably had 40 ski days. My new pair is great in below freezing (-5F) up to 20F. If I'm wearing these on a 30F day, my hands are boiling. I'll switch to my old pair on those days, so this pair will last longer and my hands aren't sweating. I like the free index finger for dexterity and find the glove to be warm enough for almost* everything we experience in Northern UT.

I bought these last year based on the reviews. I have always suffered from cold hands when skiing until these gloves. Most days I don't even bother with a glove liner now. My hands frequently sweat on days when it's below freezing. They're way too warm for spring skiing, though I have just taken the inside liner out and worn the shell.

I usually buy womens' size large in gloves because I have long fingers. I have the mediums in these and there's plenty of room. I can't even wear them with a thicker glove liner.

At the start of their 3rd season, the loft in the liner is getting packed down and I'm noticing a difference in the warmth. I think they should be fine for the rest of the season by adding an additional glove liner. Another liner wouldn't fit when I first got them. I don't notice any wear on the outside of the glove and they are still water proof.

When I replace them, I'll be getting another pair of the same.
