I really wanted these gloves to be the "ones". And after I received a pair, I found that they fit perfectly and were ideal for my needs. That was until I pulled them on by the cuffs a couple of times and noticed a rip in a cuff seam. But I really liked the style and fit, so I ordered a replacement pair that fit just like the first pair, but I was more cautious to pull these gloves on by the leather overlay on the underside of the cuff. Unfortunately, the second pair also developed a rip on a cuff seam. So anyway, I was very bummed that I had to send both pairs back and I won't reconsider the Tantos until the design flaws are fixed. A very simple design change would fix the problem and these gloves would be awesome. But for now, look elsewhere for a mid-insulated, short-cuffed & full leather-palmed glove. Until a redesign is implemented, the Tantos get the minimum one star rating for giving me a "ripping bad experience"!
