These gloves are wonderful, they keep my hands dry and warm all day on the mountain. I've had them a for a full season now and they show absolutely no signs of wear and tear. The leather palm is nice, it has great grip. My only complaints would be that for some reason the middle finger on my right hand always gets cold and starts to numb for some reason. I just stick it into the palm of my hand and wait for it to heat up, and then it's fine for the rest of the day. I think it's just my pair, not a manufacturing defect. Also, functionality (e.g. working electronics, tying laces, etc.) is limited, and though not impossible to do, I find it easier to take off the glove to do these things. This could potentially be pretty annoying. Other than that, these gloves are fantastic, and I love the price. For some reason though, Dogfunk doesn't have the awesome black and white color scheme I do (see picture), and the Charcoal Herringbone is, by my opinion, not the most stylish glove on the mountain.
