I have to say that I'm not completely sold on this glove for a couple of reasons. First, as every who has reviewed this product can agree, they run very small. I first got an XL just to play it safe because I'm 6'4" and I tend to require larger equipment, but I was astonished when I struggled to pull these gloves on. I eventually had to get the XXL gloves and they fit as they should. Secondly, I'm not to pleased with the placement of the top stitch that holds the leather upper part of the glove to the Polartec Powershield softshell bottom. I'm not pleased because the stitching runs nearly over my knuckles, which puts pressure right on the joints as I flex my hand. Lastly, I'm beginning to question the overall craftmanship with which these gloves were constructed. Nothing has fallen apart on them, but for an Arcteryx glove I was expecting something that wouldn't have tail threads popping out and also something that could keep me warmer. Now, the warmth issue might be due to the fact that it's been below zero or zero nearly everyday for the past few weeks here in MN, but I just can't seem to keep my fingers warm.
However, I do have to say that for their size, weight, and material, the Arcteryx Stinger gloves have held up better than any other small glove I have ever owned. I haven't had any water bleed through the material or the stitches while wearing them. Also, the velcro tabs at the wrists, which I first thought weren't going to be hold up, have surpassed my expectations by stopping the gloves from bunching and by generally making the gloves more secure.
Unfortunately, given the cost of these gloves versus their overall performance thus far, I must suggest that those in search of a glove keep searching.
