Familiarity: I've used it several times

A "guide glove" gave me the impression that these things would be top of the line, mountain guide certified, back country, Alaska cold ready.

Not so. These are my "spring skiing" gloves. I wear them for temps 30 and above. Just don't keep my fingers warm at lower temps and I end up balling my fists inside the glove on lifts and when not skiing.

Maybe I am just soft, but I'll stick with my Klincos for any truly cold weather.

Also some stitches came undone on the fingers within the first 3-4 uses.

Just purchased this for the 2018 ski season and have gotten a bunch of days in with it so far.

Preliminary thoughts - the shell itself is great. Excellent quality as can be expected from Patagonia. Seems durable, and is bomb proof from a moisture standpoint.

One bone to pick, @patagonia - Please make larger zippers and larger zipper pulls for your top of the line jackets/shells. The pulls on this jacket feel smaller than those on my nano-puff. The small pulls and small teeth zippers make this jacket tough to zip and unzip, especially with one hand. This is particularly relevant in zipping/unzipping the pit-vents without having to maneuver around ski poles/backpack usage, etc. Maybe zips just need to be broken in?

No other complains so far. Like the length as compared to the other Patagonia climbing/hybrid shells.
