Full disclosure, I grew up in Alaska and have lived here for all my life (42 years). I would say I'm acclimated to Alaska winters and in general I find that I can tolerate fairly cold temps. That being said, these gloves are outstanding. I like that they are thick and insulated without being too bulky, I can wear them to pump gas, split wood, etc and have the dexterity to do most outside winter tasks. The wrist portion is nice as the glove doesn't just end at the palm of your hand, but gives some coverage so that your coat can tuck over the glove. The touch screen sensor is a great feature as well. The leather palm is very durable and has stood up to some wood splitting sessions. I recently took my dog for a walk at -15F for 30 minutes and my hands did not get cold. I have another review that said the wrist opening was tight to slide your hand into, but the gloves have nice loops to help assist with putting them on and I don't find this to be an issue at all. I recommend reading the sizing chart and measure your hand in order to correctly get the right size for your hands.
