- I love them as backpacking gloves and mitt liners (Review by Tgrabs)
I originally bought these as backpacking gloves. I'll get back to that in a moment. This winter I found an unexpected use that changed my winter: mitt liners for my Meteor Mitts. They are tactile and dextrous enough to allow for some fine work and yet warm and compact enough that they work better for mitt liners than the mitten shaped mitt liners that come with overmitts like Meteor Mitts. Here's why: you never need to expose your fingers to the cold like you do with the finger-exposing Meteor Mitt liners. I buy most insulating gloves and mitts in large but on a hunch got these in mediums and the hunch was perfect; I sized down and they are tighter and fit a little better and allow for better tactility because of it.
Next, I just got back from 7 days on Isle Royale and the island and Lake Superior threw all kinds of weather at us: rain, thunderstorms, 45 F and rainy, warm and lovely. I used them when it was cold b/c I use trekking poles and need to keep my hands warm and used them around camp to handle hot pots (the leather fingers and palms are perfect for that) and to keep me fingees warm. They performed all tasks wonderfully. These are my new favorite gloves!

- Great! (Review by Ageorge)
These are awesome gloves for many uses, but particularly great ice climbing. They are light weight gloves and can get beat up doing lots of climbing and rappelling, but I have found a great solution to add life and warmth to these awesome gloves. Buy a pair of Luminary gloves, take the liners out and then wear those over the stomtracker when belaying and rappelling. This will keep your hands warmer at the belays and you will get some extra mileage out of the stormtrackers!
