- Q & A
Huge size and uncomfortable flaw
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I am in the middle of a S and M and got the M because I hate having my fingertips pressing against the end of the glove. Holy huge! I had at least a half to three quarters of an inch extra. I could not get the liners fully inserted because they were so long so there was just this jumbled mess of fabric where the fingertips were.
Even if they were the correct size there was a serious flaw that would have necessitated a return. The thumb and index finger tip fold back and there is a small strip of fabric where you can tuck the tip so it doesn't flop around. Maybe it was just the pair I got but where the fabric strip was connected scratched my finger inside of the glove. For anyone who has ever sewn anything, when you cut the thread and knot it when you are done. Yeah, that knot was rubbing against my finger. The sides of my fingers would have been rubbed raw within 30 minutes. Overall pretty disappointed and that flaw is keeping me from exchanging for the small.
Dad loves 'em!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Got these as a gift for my dad for skiing as well as general cold weather use during the frigid MN winters. He told me these were the nicest gloves he's ever owned. They fit well and the precurved digits allow for better dexterity whether he's snowblowing the drive way, throwing snow balls at the neighborhood kids or gripping ski poles. The big gauntlets keep warmth in and snow out and an included leash keeps them connected to you if you need to remove them on the ski lift.
