These are great gloves. I have a shelf full of gloves. When skiing, my hands get cold in the afternoon and I have tried at least 10 pairs of really nice gloves to overcome the problem. Some did better than others, but none eliminated the problem until now. The MH Bazukas, finally did it - warm, ev...

These gloves are great when it's below freezing, not so good when it's warm - causes the hands to sweat and there's no escape for the moisture.
I found that a cold wind blowing by the fingers can cause the fingers to get cold - so these are not so good for running a snow-thrower strangely enough - or standing in line in a winter gale holding skis while waiting for the gondola. But otherwise, they're totally warm even when skiing fast in 3D powder. I can't figure it out, really, why they seem to leak heat in those two situations, but it's probably due to ineffective insulating material.
I'm 6' with regular hands - can't grip a normal sized basketball and hold it palm-down, but a grippy girl's basketball I can, kind of - and a Large in these gloves fit just right with a bit of room to spare - if I'd chosen X-Large I'd have regretted it greatly.
The Bazukas are easy to put on, and very comfortable to wear. Very durable, and will last me many years and that's what counts - just be sure to take lighter gloves for warmer (above freezing) days.

Overall I would say these are great gloves with one caveat - I have not had the opportunity to test their "waterproofness" and I'm not about to dunk them in water to do so.
My only real complaint is that they do not have enough of a pre-curve in the fingers which makes it a bit tiresome when using them for driving or gripping tools. Fit is spot on for me and they are plenty warm and windproof. Would have given them 5 stars if I could verify their waterproofness and they had a bigger pre-curve.

I haven't worn these a lot but when I have, I was very pleased. Usually, it takes a few minutes for my van heater to get going (I don't want to idle and waste gas) and my hands get cold pretty fast when it's around 0 degrees. Haven't had that problem at all with these gloves. My hands get cold easily so, I sprung for a more expensive, durable and warmer glove--glad I did!
