Rated 4 out of 5 by Unclebuck from Great warmth, great feel I ski patrol in the Alberta mountains, our gloves take a beating daily. These gloves have proven to be excellent they protect my hands from the harsh cold that we are exposed to for hours on end The value is amazing they are 50 bucks!! If they tear, if I get blood on them they are easy to replace. I have three pair I purchase a new pair each year and keep the rest as back ups just in case someone else needs a pair in a pinch

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheCapedCrusader from Old version good - New version unknown I bought the older version of this exact same glove a few years back. These gloves were great in the cold but to make sure that your fingers stay warm you have to really pull the strap super tight and make sure that no air is getting into the glove. I found that if you don't wear supporting winter gear like good boots and jacket then your hands could get colder easier. I remember going out in -25 or so down by Lake Ontario and my hands were warm while everyone else had cold hands. Pros: - Comfortable - Fingers usable (Not to chunky) - Draw strap helps to cut off cold air - Extra wrist fabric helps to tuck cloths into - Durable Cons: - Overall chunky design - Bit overpriced - Not very stylish for everyday use I might buy the new ones since I need a new pair after a couple seasons of use. I would suggest that if you are going to buy them that you make sure the straps can be pulled tight and feel like a good seal. Most cold comes through air that seeps in through your wrist area. Hope this helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walkaboutfar from Love the Gloves These gloves are great. Keep in mind that if you are dealing with EXTREME cold, you need mittens not gloves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Aluchi from Not warm for severe cold The way they look they look like skiing gloves, so I bought them for the Toronto weather that is becoming way too cold in the last couple of years espeically during storms when temperatures dip to 30 sub zero Celcius or lower. What I found is they are okay for up to 10 below zero with the wind chill factor. I put them on today for 20 minutes when temperature was close to 30 below zero and fingers from the middle knuckle to the nail area was painful and I could feel the cold to the bones, no kidding. When I went home one of my fingers had started to turn blue. Lastly, it is hard to tuck the cuffs of one's jacket or coat underneath the cloves. One can do one hand but the other hand needs someone's else help. The gloves cuffs need to be enlarged somewhat more. Also, there was difference at all between the L size and the XL size , so that is for the quality control department to work on. In brief, yes nice material and feel good too, but they won't provide warmth in severe weather conditions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillRea from Fantastic for extreme cold weather I've worked in the high arctic for many years, and found these to be the best all around glove. I've used them in -50 weather doing refuelling activities, and even getting wet on the outside with fuel, it did not seep through. Best ever!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lilou22 from Very Happy I wish I had bought 2 pairs. I work outside, spending a lot of time de-icing water. The gloves were warm, comfortable and waterproof. I could use a second pair, I can wash them by hand but they take a long time to dry. They lost a bit of thermal efficiency, but as I have worn them at work 10hrs a day for 3months - I can definitely recommend them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rc01 from Disappointing I was impressed with these gloves in store. They are very comfortable but offered very little thermal protection. I had to take them off and warm my hands. I found the dollar store gloves were just as warm for the rest of the day. The money I shelled out for them worsens the blow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BruceD from Disappointed I had high hopes for these gloves. They are perhaps warmer than some other gloves but I am still unable to work outside in the winter for an extended period of time (in fairness, I have poor circulation). The major problem is taking them off - the lining is not attached and tends to pull out of the fingers with your hand. If you are working and need to do something with your bare hands, you can't take your gloves off and put them back on quickly. I have given up on these gloves.
