I just came in for the outside where current temp is 25 degrees F with a wind chill that makes it feel around 5 degrees F! However, these gloves kept my hands toasty warm. They are velvet smooth and not bulky so you don't lose a lot of sensativity in your hands. Great for cold weather driving or walking outside. Two thumbs (and eight fingers!) way up on thses gloves.
These gloves are warm & comfortable to wear, great price & seem durable. I live in NY & it can get pretty cold here, they have held up to the snowstorms we have had. I am 6' at 200 lbs, average hands & got a medium size, fits snug but not too tight.
Pros: Excellent fit (x-lg for me). Deerskin extremely pliant and soft right out of the box; I could actually work my iPod classic while wearing these. Though light and thin, these gloves are incredibly resistant to below zero temperatures even in the wind. Cons: Much more a dress or casual glove than a work glove. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars across the board is that the leather doesn't seem to do well under hard use, including its tendency to absorb the road salt compounds used here in Wisconsin. Also, the lining seems to me to be unduly fragile. I get the feeling that after repeated use, the lining will probably separate from the deerskin. If that happens, the gloves will be useless in our winters. Overall, these gloves are definitely some of the warmest I've ever worn, and the price is hard to beat.
I purchased these gloves as a gift. The recipient was not pleased with the gloves, as they did not have a lining in them and the dye on the inside of the skin of the gloves discolored their fingernails. The quality of the leather was good, but they should have been lined to prevent the nails from being discolored.
The zipper pulls and zipper are made of cheap plastic. The pulls broke as I was taking them out of the packaging. They are what you expect from being made in China. They are not even worth paying half off the discount price. I would recommend finding product American or European manufactured over substandard china crap any day of the week.
I purchased an XL for my husband but these were way too big. Each finger had at least an extra inch on them. He's always used an XL with any other gloves. I'm returning them for a size large. I like the look and feel of the gloves. Just be aware that they are too roomy.
The gloves are nice I only give them 4 stars because I found a slightly different cut in one of the gloves and that is considered a defect in my mind. However, I am happy with the gloves and they are a nice soft leather. I would recommend them to a friend.
