just say no
I bought last year's version of these gloves and the palms split in literally 3 uses. Maybe they were the lemons of the batch, and perhaps celtek got their act together between last year and this winter, but I know they'll never get 80 bucks out of me again. I wouldn't be nearly as bitter if they had at least responded to my emails questioning theiry warranty policy. I'd go for another glove if you value your money at all.
