I purchased these gloves to use primarily for cold weather range days and for outdoor recreation. The balance between warmth/dexterity is very good. The gloves do not feel bulky and the short gauntlet fits easily under the cuffs of a duty jacket or parka. I am on the cusp of med/large in typical gloves, but the medium fits me best for this glove. My one negative comment is in regards to the "smart phone" material sewn over the end of the thumb and index finger. This material and the way it is sewn on adds almost 1/4" to the interior length of the thumb and index finger and reduces dexterity and tactile feel by a great deal. There is no way I would wear these gloves when manipulating a pistol or rifle. Honestly, I don't know why a cold weather "tactical" glove needs to have smart phone capability anyway. I think if the smart phone material was removed and all the fingers on the glove were constructed the same way, this glove would be just about perfect.
