I've taken a couple spills with these gloves and kept the snow out fairly well. I got the correct size but in temps below 15 or so, my fingers get numb after a bit. There is enough room in the palm to sneak a hand warmer for the cold days so thats not a big deal. The snot pad on the thumb is decent. My only real/semi complaint is the finger insulation properties. This is my main glove for what that is worth.
