Wow!! This gloves really exceeded my expectation. I bought it for up track for ski touring and cross country ski, but ended up using for everything else. I especially love it for ice climbing,. Great grip and generous but not in the way to hold the ice tool kind of insulation, which I have been having tough time to find (usually no insulation and cold, or too much insulation to comfortably handle screws on lead). Just started using it this winter, so I'm curious how long it may last, but I will buy it again when it's beaten.
