I bought these looking for something a little more form fitting than a standard winter glove. I love how tight they fit! I can lace up my boots with them on. I thought I would have problem with getting too cold but these bad boys keep the heat in. The waterproofing on them is sweet but if you happen to stumble a few times and get some snow in them they can get pretty soggy by the end of the day, however they still stay warm and comfortable!
