Hubby says his paws are toasty warm even at the end of a long day on the mountain in a blizzard. The liner is also a mitten so your fingers are all cozy together, but you can open the flap in the liner if you need to use them. The little magnets that hold the flaps down are slightly awkward, but he says they didn't bother him after a while. They go pretty far down your wrists too so you don't have to worry about snow getting up inside. Our only complaint is that the liner was stitched incorrectly and had a hole...Moosejaw promptly replaced them with a new pair, but they also had the flaw. No biggie, just sewed it shut. Otherwise, these rock.
