These gloves work very well for spring boarding. My local hill is Mt. High in Wrightwood, Cali. On the few rare occasions that the temp. has dropped into the 30's my hands have been kept warm. However, once these gloves get wet, it is game over in lower temps. Warm fleshy digits turn to icicles. The white design of the gloves also started to wear fairly quickly on the palms even before I started boning out grabs. I have put in 23 days and counting and these gloves have held up very well other than the white rubber coming off the palms. I have yet to put any holes in them. Overall they are pretty decent and fairly affordable.
