Reviewed by Tom from Cambridge on Thursday, November 24, 2016I may follow this up to add a fifth star, however, I've not yet taken these on the slopes in N.E. and have been limited to a few blustery days as the temps just begin to drop. So, mid 30s to mid 40s with wind. In these conditions, these have been FIVE starts. My hands have even gotten a bit warm. The wrist cinch really does lock in heat. The lining is luxuriously comfortable and the leather breaks in after a short number of uses and is commendably comfortable. I will agree that they run a TAD small. I can typically wear either L or XL in gloves. I believe my hands measure about 8, or 8.5 long and around 9 in girth. I got the XL and they fit fine, especially after stretching a little, from wearing in. But all in all: They look cool; are well made with great materials; come from a high quality manufacturer of excellent outdoor gear. Soon enough, I'll see if there as waterproof as I've read and if they are and continue to keep my digits warm down to about 20 degrees, well then...what's not to like?
Reviewed by Active Senior from Wisconsin Northwoods on Friday, October 28, 2016Two full sizes too small! I couldn't even get my hands in them! I have several pair of MHW large gloves that fit perfect. Now I get charged $6.95 for return shipping!!!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Riley from Colorado on Friday, October 28, 2016I usually wear a medium glove so got a pair of mediums and larges to make sure I got the right size after reading they run small. It turned out both were still way too small. There must be no regulation in the manufacturing. I was very disappointed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Old Flyboy from New Mexico on Sunday, October 23, 2016These gloves look like just what I wanted for the upcoming ski season. A pair of gloves for colder days. I find them quite handsome. They are so small that I couldn't come close to getting them on and one seemed smaller than the other. I do have large hands and have trouble buying gloves but these, unfortunately, didn't work.
The tag on the gloves said they were unisex size XL. I am not sure if I missed that information online or not but I would never order gloves that are unisex sized. The return was painless. Thank you.
Reviewed by George from NY on Friday, March 18, 2016These are durable, nicely constructed, good looking gloves but they could be more breathable especially if your hands tend to sweat. The lining in the fingers is pretty thin and quickly compresses so expect cold fingers when temps dip into the 20s. They also run a bit tight around the palm but the finger length is adequate. I was expecting more given the retail price but I accept their weaknesses given the purchase price. What's a person gotta soend to get a top performing ski glove? The answer is apparently: much more.
Reviewed by biscuitwheels from ohio on Wednesday, February 18, 2015Purchased a pair for my husband in an xl which he always wears. One glove fit fine and the other one was almost a size smaller. This was visible when looking at the gloves flat and comparing. Ordered a second pair and they were both the same size but very tight. He wore them out in the snow which is what they are for and said his hands were very cold in about five minutes and changed into his older and less expensive gloves.
They look great but are definitely sized smaller and the warmth is questionable.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JohnS from Massachusetts on Wednesday, February 18, 2015First off - the quality of the gloves is superb! But I wear a medium large cadet (short fingers) golf glove and it was all I could do to squeeze my hands into them. Once on they were much too tight - I gave them to my 120 lb. wife who said they were tight going on and a little large, but she's going to take them. Will have to add that she had them on the other day when it was in the mid twenties and her hands got cold - maybe just poor circulation?? Overall I was very disappointed.
