I have very skinny fingers with medium-sized hands. My hands are comparable to those of ET (Ring size 3.5, Girth ~7 inches). I purchased size small, which have worked out very well for my long, skinny fingers. I have full mobility with all of my digits and can grasp onto bike handlebars or ski poles without a loss of dexterity. I've used them to bike in 20F and ski in 5F; the gloves kept my fingers reasonably warm in both instances. I was caught in a freezing rain/sleet/snow mix while biking and these gloves never soaked through or lost their function. I considered using them for ice climbing, but I couldn't part with my Black Diamond Punisher gloves. If I ever lost my Punishers, then these would be my go-to pair.
FWIW I previously had a pair of Black Diamond Women's Prodigy gloves in size small which were a terrible fit for my ET fingers (I could barely move my thumbs and would estimate a loss of 50% usage due to the stubby glove fingers).

If you have very small hands, order the small size; if you have small hands, you might want to try the medium! The liner is short but graspable. These are tight around the wrist, so consider ordering up a size.

I bought these for my wife, for skiing mainly but also camping in cold weather. She hasn't had a chance to use them yet, but I can see they are very well made and a great fit. The liners also fit well and can be used as separate light gloves. I think the shells will also work with a pair of heavier light gloves she has for extra warmth when needed, without sacrificing dexterity.
