The glove look great and feel pretty good when you try them on in the store but when you step outside on a cold day, they just dont do the job. My best guess is that these would work fine in the fall but dont try them in the winter. They're pretty good and repeling wind and water but I would not soak them. On a plus side if ninjas come, you will be able to fight them off because the mobility in these are great.
"Great for low-key activities, not the best for ultimate weather protection"
These gloves are great if you need a lot of flexibility for low-key activities. They have a good grip and allow a lot of independent finger motion. They are perfect for wearing around town on a cold/snowy day or cross country skiing. They are fairly weather resistant and do a good job at insulating. They aren't designed for activities where you will be encountering a lot of snow with your hands and need to insulate and protect them from the elements. Overall, a good casual glove.
"Good glove, takes a bit of time to heat up."
I got these gloves two years ago. The material is great against water and wind, but it takes a bit to warm up. The inside is covered with a soft material, which is great and warm if indoors, but step outside and the outer shell gets cold fast and soon your hands too. It's kind of thick, which limits use of small things, such as cell phones and other things. Overall it's good.
"Good to look at but not to keep you warm"
I've had these gloves for the past year and haven't ever really loved them. The big draw to the gloves is the amount of dexterity they provide with the apex fabric, and the silicone palm pattern is great for gripping things like a shovel or your car steering wheel. The major drawback is the actual warmth of the gloves. I thought the apex material was a great choice for gloves because of its weatherproof abilities but theres just simply not enough insulation to keep my hands warm for any long outdoor exposer. On the bright side though, they do look great.
