Took them to Colorado for a week of boarding and have been using them as my biking gloves in Chicago. They work great for both applications. Only minor issues I've had: 1) Bit awkward to try to pull the gauntlet over your jacket sleeve with a glove on. 2) On my pair it can be a bit tricky to get the left hand pinky finger into the glove if I'm already wearing the liner; probably just a minor manufacturing issue. Overall though, quite warm and useful.
