I am a pretty big guy with smaller than average hands. The Xl were way too big; exchanged for the L which fit perfect. Used them every day for a week in Northern Utah. Temp was consistently high teens/low 20's and I didn't have to use the inserts, which are money. Gloves were always dry the next morning. The soft thumb is great for a runny nose, and the vents/pockets are great. Loved these gloves...
