Reviewed by mane from Georgia on Friday, February 6, 2015These gloves look great !! That's about it though... I would not want these on my hands when the temp falls below freezing !! They will be fine for Atlanta ga.. Not Utah .....
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jeff from NYC, New York on Tuesday, February 3, 2015Have worn nearly daily in the NY winter and have been pleased to date. BD rates them for 0-32F and that seems accurate--they have been quite warm in 10-20F temps. They are roomy inside--I think a pair of thin liners would fit well--but not so roomy that they become thermally inefficient. Cinch system works well and cinches/de-cinches easily. I have not yet used them for serious snow play, so cannot comment on waterproofness or durability.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by maggiekayaks from Cameron,NC on Friday, January 30, 2015These gloves are lightweight and allowed for dexterity when needed. I purchased these for my boyfriend for a trip to New England with single digit temperatures and they kept his fingers warm and toasty. Fit was good when used sizing chart.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tater from PA on Tuesday, January 27, 2015Time will tell, but these may be the best ski gloves I have ever had
Reviewed by David from MIchigan on Sunday, January 11, 2015Seriously disappointed in these gloves and will be returning. Made for only moderate conditions. On inspection, after receiving these I looked at the attached Thinsalate label and it showed that the 70g of insulation is only good for their 2 out of 4 conditions. Severe conditions has between 150 to 200g.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DC from Chicago on Friday, December 19, 2014Low profile, low bulk, more dexterity than I expected. The cuffs would be my only reason to not give it 5 stars.
I ordered these along with the MH Compulsion gloves. I wanted to really like the MH better, but these are the ones I'm going to end up keeping.
The liner is nice and soft on these and the fit is pretty good. I have yet to find a ski glove that is a "perfect fit" and although these aren't it, they fit better than most gloves. I ordered a M because I like a tighter fit, but these still give me a bit of room both in length of the fingers and in overall feel. The outside material is much more pliable/flexible/softer than I expected. This equates to a bit more dexterity without having the different material at the joints that other, more expensive gloves have.
The gloves are light and warm. The packaging is nice because they have a cold rating on them. From memory, I think these gloves were rated down to 0 degrees F. It's clearly labeled on the packaging, but Sierra doesn't show a picture of this. I really like the low profile of these gloves--my hands don't look like Wreck-It Ralph.
My only issue is the cuff. I believe they are meant to go either above or below the jacket. What ends up happening with this dual sizing is that it's a bit small to go over the cuff and a bit large to tuck under once your jacket is on. My jacket cuff bunches up when I try to put these over my jacket which annoys me. The only solution is to put the gloves on first, then your jacket in order to get them under.
Reviewed by Jay from Colorado on Thursday, December 26, 2013These might be the best gloves that BD makes, the fit is awesome, where I have a lot of dexterity. I chose a medium. My hand is about 8.5" around and 7" from wrist to middle finger tip.
