Passed the test!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Outdoor Enthusiast from Adirondacks - NY on Tuesday, February 12, 2013
I bought these gloves to reluctantly replace a pair of EMS gloves that served me very well for the past 12 years. But I was planning a ski trip to VT and needed something warmer. I was very nervous taking these gloves out for a full day of downhill skiing without having tested them in more controlled conditions. I was even more nervous when I learned it was only going to be 18 degrees the day we planned to ski. I'm happy to say these gloves passed the test! Together with a pair of thin glove liners, they kept my hands warm and dry in very cold and VERY windy conditions for a full 6 hours with no break. Even up the chairlift... I can't comment on the waterproofing issues some others have mentioned, but I can say the 2XL size fit my hands well and I normally wear a L or XL depending on the brand. I would not hesitate to recommend these gloves. They appear well made, the palm and thumb have good grip, and they are not overly bulky. Don't hesitate to buy these gloves...
