I had an older version of OR Windstopper gloves for over 18 years that finally gave up (well, honestly, one of the gloves melted when I was tending a campfire). They were great gloves that went everywhere with me including vacations, climbing, skiing, etc. The only complaint I ever had about those gloves was the decrease in dexterity. These gloves have much more "feel" to them and I really like the touchscreen finger tips. They work great. The gloves are definitely warm and comfortable. I bought XL gloves and they are slightly tight on me as I usually wear XXL gloves. That said, they are still very comfortable and I have worn them for over 5 hours in comfort. Thanks OR.
