- very nice (Review by Eldo Ed)
I would say that the materials are top, if not outstanding. These have quickly become my go-to gloves for Rando (Ski Mountaineering) and general winter use. I have warm hands and the shells alone keep me comfortable from 40-15 (lower if I'm skiing up hill) The WindStopper allows enough moisture out that they haven't ever been wet from the inside out.
I do think that OR should curve the fingers MORE, especially since they are technical gloves. If I was designing these, I would make the fingers so that they naturally curved around a 1.5 inch, or smaller tube. The distal joints would be the most curved, as those muscles are far weaker than the proximal joints/ muscles. I see no reason that these gloves explicitly designed to grip a ice tool or ski pole.
I would say that the size is about 1/2 size small, which is perfect for the technical application and grip. In a month of decent use I have seen absolutely zero wear.
Excellent gloves, I may have to buy Version 2 because they should be PERFECT.

- Men's Luminary Gloves (Review by By BryGil)
I've been using this glove all winter and it's proven to be my most trust worthy cold weather warrior. When the hands are giving you the screaming barfies, slip them into a set of the Luminary and feel the PAIN as you warm up! I approach, belay, rappel, ski etc. in these and after the initial break in period they pretty much became one with my hands. Gore keeps you dry and at the end of the day rip out the liners and the inside moisture dries out quickly. I haven't tried this, but was thinking if you buy them a size small and take out the liner you'd have a rad, waterproof shell (still cozy due to fleece bonded inside) suitable for hard ice leads on warmer but wet days.

I got these glove after considering multiple pairs of other gloves. Being a backcountry guide, I like a 2 piece glove as it allows me to pull them apart and dry them more easily. It also allow an increased flexibility of use by being able to use them without the liners when temps are milder or use a different liner if I choose. I wear a medium in many gloves but was afraid the medium was too restrictive so went for the large which isn't unusual for me in a glove of this type. They will benefit from a good breaking in while carrying a ski pole or ice ax and can tell the dexterity will improve after they are. I am applying a high quality leather conditioner to them to expedite this process. I believe they will work well.
