Well Designed. Not for very cold.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by morey000 from Tucson, AZ on Thursday, February 23, 2012
It's clearly a well designed, well made glove. good stitching and reinforcements in the right places. Excellent freedom of movement and feel for a winter glove. Only used them a few days on the ski slopes so far. I like the soft dry-feeling lining, rugged feel, soft leather palm. Fine for days between the teens and into the 30's. Colder than that requires glove liners.

As mentioned in a previous review-it's a 'small gauntlet' glove. So, the gauntlet needs a little help to get over your jacket sleeve. But- it does come with that nice bungee slider tightening system to easily secure or release the gauntlet. It's functional.

The gloves have zippered pockets on the back - but these are NOT designed for hand warmers as they are outside of the insulation. Bummer on that one. Good for keeping your chapstick or locker key tho'. The zippers are of the sealed, waterproof variety.

I wouldn't pay full retail for these- but a good purchase if at STP discount prices.
