DISAPPOINTED IN DAKINE

I'll get right to the point. I made my purchase based on the reviews I read. Boy was I misinformed! For the price, this glove is a joke! I read a review saying "These gloves kept my hands warm in -40C" THIS IS NOT TRUE AT ALL! Also the reviews are over a year old. May be Dakine changed something in there gloves since then. I live 5 minutes south of the Wisconsin state line and they didn't do what everyone said they did. I walked the dog yesterday, it was only 20 degrees, I was only outside 15 minutes and my finger tips started getting cold! Today 1/2/08 it was 18 degrees and my finger tips got cold again! I knew I should have stuck with a glove that has at least 100 grams of Thinsulate Brand insulation and not Thermoloft. I also noticed the Features area for this glove, they never mention how much Thermoloft insulation is in the glove. I ended up wearing my wifes gloves with 100 grams of Thinsulate Brand insulation in them. I was outside using the snow blower for 2 hours, snow blowing everywhere and my wifes gloves kept my hands warm. I'll be returning them tomorrow. BOTTOM LINE: COBRA GT GLOVES LOOK NICE BUT DON'T GET THE JOB DONE! AND THAT'S THE TRUTH!

Would just like to say that according to Dakine's website there are 2/4 oz of insulation in the glove which translates to 56.7/113.4 grams of insulation. For those of you wondering. I personally feel that thermoloft and thinsulate are equal I have owned gloves with both and have never been disappointed with either.
