Great gloves. I ordered a medium. I have skinny man hands and the medium fit great. Does stay cool on the hands, especially for hikes here in the dry West. Couple areas that I would like to see improved on future gloves - the glove fits good in palm area when hand is flat (like flat on a table). In hand's natural position, slightly curved, the material in the palm area is a bit excessive - loose. I was wondering if this was by design to allow for more airflow, but it just seems slightly odd to me. The other issue for me is the stitched seam on the thumb is on the inside of the thumb where it hits the trekking poles. It becomes a bit of an irritation spot. I suspect that it will soften up once more miles are put on them. For people looking for more sun protection, perhaps go for the style that goes up onto the wrist more. I chose these as I have 1000's of miles of experience with bicycle gloves and these were an easy transition for me. I have some concerns over long term durability - the material is thin - but I imagine with care they will last awhile..

A cool high five
- I've put it through the wringer
After falling in love with the activeice fabric in some OR sun sleeves I wanted to get a pair of these for trail running and spring glacier travel. Replacing cycling I used for the last few summers. Pros: Very light breathable fabric feels good on hot days. They compress down to shove into a pocket. The palm fabric keeps my hands from sweating and grips ski poles very well. Con: Only worry about the long term durabilty but thats cause I'm using them for something they aren't intended for. The closer system makes them a little bulky so I can't fit them under my ski gloves when temps drop. Overall these are perfect for trail runners, hikers and spring skiers!
