I bought these after reading some reviews and thought I'd give them a shot. I wasn't impressed with a couple of things. First off, what I did like was the leather and construction...they'd probably hold up good enough for a season or two and seemed pretty warm. What I didn't like was the cuff enclosure (not tight enough for my taste), overall fit and, mainly, the lack of curvature of the fingers, etc. allowing for dexterity.
