Good Xcountry skiing gloveI used this glove to back country x-country ski in and around Rocky Mountain National Park in December/January. The glove did good with keeping my fingers warms when I was moving but I did have a little trouble when the temps got down in the single digits (negatives wind chill). I do have to say that I have cold fingers though.
I do like how the gloves separate out so that that you can take the lining out from the shell after a day when your hands sweat so that they dry faster at night.
The gloves do run a little small - do not trust the BD sizing chart, it is VERY WRONG. I measured my hands they they recommended I get a medium, and I am glad that I purchased the large. Though they are still a little tight on me I am curious to see how the x-large feels and it might be a little warmer because my hands would have a touch more room.

Nice Glove but runs small and are stiff.Bought these for my Girlfriend who suffers from Reynards syndrome (Cold hands and feet). These glove are stiff and run small which after the initial warmth they provide, cause the blood flow to constrict because of the lack of mobility. This also prevents the ability to grip ski poles. We will be exchanging them for a medium which will hopefully alleviate the problem.
