Closeouts. For cold backcountry rides where dexterity is a necessity, Auclair's snowmobile gloves free up your digits, while still offering the warmth of toasty Sherpa fleece lining and a padded knuckle for added wind protection.

The gloves are good and warm. I only used them downhill skiing when the temperatures were below zero. The leather shows no sines of wear but the inside of the thumb is ripped down the center an across the seam. This is unacceptable for a pair of gloves that were not used a dozen times.

I wore these during a five minute round-trip to the mailbox this morning in 4 degrees with little to no wind. Within about a minute, I could feel the cold cutting through the gloves while my body was toasty in my goose-down coat. I can't imagine that these gloves would suffice on a snowmobile. My WalMart Thinsulate mittens are much warmer than these gloves. Also, the seam is starting to seperate where the strap connects to the glove. The price ($14) was reasonable for leather gloves, but I am not impressed.

Purchased these for my husband and son for snowmobiling. Although they are good for keeping out the wind and wet, they did not keep their hands warm for long. After an hour ride (it was about 20 deg out) both complained that their fingers were chilly. I'm going to order some base inserts for them to wear but was hoping for more :/ Overall good basic glove, though, to have.

They are really warm, but after one day of use one glove had developed tears between the fingers, where they attach to the palm. We were on a multi-day trip and had to use the gloves. By lunch on the second day the leather had torn across the first three fingers, where they come out of the palm. If you took the glove off and bent the fingers back the leather would tear. Like moist cardboard. Lame. Fortunately, building an exterior glove out of duct tape allowed us to finish the trip. The leather on the other glove had bits separating off the palm, but did not shred like the first glove. And this was a downhill ski trip, only holding ski poles, not a trip in the woods where you would handle rough things.

Warm gloves, I have used then to 19 degrees F so far this winter without my hands feeling cold. I wear large gloves and they are a Goldilocks fit, just right. If you are an XL size glove, you will have to pass. The Velcro wrist cinch works nicely, snugs the gloves down at the wrist blocking out wind and the gauntlet fits well over my winter motorcycle riding jacket. Worth way more than the price I paid.

Bought these for snowmobiling and they did not disappoint. Good qaulity for a good price, comfortable on first wear. They are long, as expected for snowmobiling, so may be cumbersome for some activities. Not sure how warm, good with handwarmers. I did buy the extra large and they fit good. I normally would buy large mens.
