I bought these for my wife for Christmas. She originally asked for mittens, but I was afraid that they would not offer the versatility that she would need. I chose these gloves because they have a lot of features, and removable liners being one of the best. She has worn them twice skiing and loves them. The large pull loops and wrist tethers are a very nice feature. One day when she was afraid that they wouldn't be warm enough, she inserted some hand-warmers in them and said they were more than warm enough! They are very nice gloves.
