I have used these gloves in settings ranging from arctic ice sheets to winter climbing to general hiking and backpacking in the snow or in cold conditions. While the gloves have performed very well, there is a VERY important issue having to do with the fact that they ARE NOT WATERPROOF:
The inner lining of the glove comes loose from the outer part when wet. This causes the glue to coat your hands which is fine because it easily washes off and this stops after a wash or two.
Besides that, the gloves are properly durable and adaptable to many uses. The material dries off fairly quickly. Mine are coming apart a bit on the cuffs where the seams are breaking but that is due more to the wear and tear that they have lived through than anything else.

Nonetheless, BEWARE of getting them wet.

I bought two of these. One, I cut in half and knotted in order to set up a hammock. This turned out to be a great idea as the cor is super strong and easily packed. The other is for extended backpacking and emergency purposes. Truly a multi-use and highly versatile material that is worth having in a backpack.
