Nice gloves but they lack the dexterity required for many cold weather activities. Any heavy glove will always trade dexterity for warmth but these have a lot of stitching near the end of the thumb that makes them unnecessarily cumbersome. I think this particular feature could be redesigned and improved. The thumb and trigger finger are the most important for tasks that require fine motor skills and extra effort should be put into ensuring that stitching and excess material doesn't interfere with their use. These gloves are fine for skiing or snowshoeing but arent suitable for shooting or climbing as the excess material in the thumb constantly gets in the way and removes any tactile qualities the rest of the glove may possess. The size also seems a little toward the small side. They fit ok but are very snug. If you plan to using liners definitely order the next size up.
