"Warm, Snug-fitting, Good for Casual Use"
I'm currently residing in Kabul, Afghanistan and it gets into the 30's at night and will only continue to get colder as we head into January. It also rains and snows here so i wanted a pair of warm, waterproof/resistant, utilitarian gloves. I read that the wool composition of these gloves will continue to keep your hands warm even if wet. That combined with the fitted style of the glove and the grip tape on the palms and forefinger made me decide to go with these Mountain Hardwear Wool Stretch gloves. My hands are small (5.5 in. from base of palm to tip of finger) but I went with the medium. I'm glad I did because the opening of the gloves don't stretch much if at all and I have to squeeze my hand in. Other than that, the gloves fit great if not just a little loose. They do keep my hands warm in this 30 degree weather but they don't have much grip at all in the fingers so if you need to perform functions requiring grip in fingers and dexterity I would choose another glove.
Got these for SWMBO to use on her bike commutes in the morning. Thus far her hands/fingers are still intact so I's say they're a success! She also has the MH EPIC glove to go over top when it starts to get REALLY cold. She's happy so I'm happy :)
