I'm not the only one who gets a runny nose in the cold, right? ... right?I have taken these ice climbing once or twice, but mostly use them for biking in 30 degree weather (Fahrenheit). One feature I use frequently but I don't see mentioned anywhere because it's kind of gross is that they are really good to wipe your nose on. When it's cold and windy and you get a little runny, these things have a large, relatively comfy surface on which to wipe. ,,Bottom line: I'd bring hand warmers if your going to be out long below 30 (again, Fahrenheit), but beyond that these are toasty, dexterous, solid gloves that have put up with two years of rain, wind, and unbelievable amounts of mucus.

The best technical glove out there!I have been using this glove for 2 years now. I have used it for skiing, backpacking, and ice climbing. This glove has a great grip on anything. It is very easy to use your fingers and it feels like you're using your fingers. The gloves have kept my fingers warm in temperatures of -25 degrees with no problem. I have used them in backcountry skiing with no problems of getting my hands wet. After 2 years of use, the gloves are still going strong with hardly any rips or shreds. If you are looking for a glove that can be used for basically anything, this is your pair.

Maybe they had a chanceI got these as a send choice for my husband after I had ordered a different pair from moosejaw and was informed they weren't able to get them at all. These were way too lightweight for skiing so he returned them immediately.

Excellent gloves!Bought these for my son to weather the storms of west Michigan - they fit well, lining is very warm and the leather on the palm-side is a great feature.

Great for the PriceThis is a good glove for the price. The palm is gray with some sort of lines/design. I wish the palm was black. I wish this was an etip/touch-screen glove. I wish these gloves fit like an Arc'teryx Beta AR and looked like an Arc'teryx Rush. Here's what you have to keep in mind, and what I had to keep in mind while spending tons of time researching gloves. This glove is 40 gram thinsulate, will keep your hands from getting wet, but they are not Gore-Tex. Gore-Tex is way more money. It appears some gloves that were water resistant last season, have been updated to Windstopper and not water resistant, making one buy an additional shell glove to keep dry. With this glove, no additional shell required. I wear a Large. They are a big tight when putting them on, but once on, they fit, well, like a glove. Not good, not bad. I dislike the palm when I make a fist, as the material bunches up / comes up from my palm. However, a better fitting / performing glove is a ton more money. For the price, it's a decent enough glove that I will wear them, and the cops won't get any fingerprints when I have these on and I steal your Arc'teryx Rush gloves. For an upgrade, try the Black Diamond Rambla. More money, but Gore-Tex. Or, just buy these B.D Arc gloves. Decent gloves that won't empty your wallet, unlike when I reach into your pocket and take your wallet.
