I recently bought these for my wife for a skiing trip in Vermont. I was looking for some high quality, mid-level gloves for her, since I wasn't sure how much she was going to wear these. Her hands get super cold normally and these seem to keep her hands and fingers really cold with minimal activity. She especially likes the little patch on the glove for wiping a runny nose. You could always add liners to the gloves if you want, but they seem to be plenty warm on their own.
