Familiarity: I've used it several times

I received these gloves as a gift to replace/update a previous pair of Marmot gloves that were looking a little rough after several Buffalo, NY winters. At first I was a bit worried that the Exum "small" was enough smaller than the previous "small" gloves that it would be a problem, but in fact it is not. Even though the gloves are very close fitting it does not impact the warmth and it definitely allows for greater dexterity. I was working outside today trying to address frozen downspout that couldn't handle the melt water from snow on a sunny south facing roof. After about 20 minutes hacking away at ice while water cascaded down around the pipe the outer shell of the gloves was soaked (to the point that when I stopped for a little while they began to freeze up) but the insides were still warm and dry. Quite a feat and certainly what you'd want if you were out in the wild even more than working on the side of your house.
