I work at a ski resort in maintenance. So I was looking for a pair of gloves that fulfill the impossible task of having warmth, dexterity and durability. These are the closest I've come so far. The dexterity is the best feature. I followed OR's sizing chart and having the snug fit works well. The draw back of having great dexterity is you sacrifice warmth. I would uses these gloves regularly in 15f/-10c weather, and while it wasn't always comfortable it was MUCH better than bare hands. They do dry very quickly though which makes a big difference in how warm they feel. Even my own body heat was enough to dry them out quickly. As for the durability, They did last longer than I thought they would. However they were destroyed by the end of their first season. That is in no way is a true representation of the product though, because I gave them a very hard life way beyond their intended use.
