These are solid insulation gloves. They feel tough and durable, and are decently warm for the cold, bitter Chicago temperature. I wish the dexterity was a bit better/they weren't as bulky, although they're not bad in this department. I also wish they were a little warmer, but I guess a sweet spot had to be chosen to balance the insulation/bulkiness. Around 20 degree F, I kind of still need to use my hand warmer pockets to keep my fingers warm. To be fair, my hands just tend to run cold though.
