Great solution for rain and snow in those shoulder season backpacking trips. I used mine in Alaska in June on rain-soaked days and they generally kept the hands dry and warm(er). The DWR is pretty effective if you're just walking, but it you use your hands much (I.e. camp chores, tent setup, etc.) It seems to very quickly override the repellency. Still kept hands pretty dry, but the fabric gets heavier and freezing nights meant crispy gloves. Overall a solid product for niche uses, but I spend 30-90 days a year in the Backcountry, so they've been amazing for me in AK and the PNW.
