We haven't had a chance to use them yet, but when my daughter tried them on, she said they were reallywarm. They seem to be good quality, and I like the fact that they come up higher over the wrist. Only down side that I could see, is that the finger tips are squared off, so you feel more of the seam of the material, which if you have long fingers, might be annoying. For her purposes though, she still had some room so it was no problem. We also liked the grips on the fingers and palm. So, far, it's a hit!
