I was surprised how very soft,?supple and stretchy is the leather on these. Nice quality. I got them as replacements and to go with my brown leather winter jacket. Considering unflattering reviews elsewhere, I don't get it. They are pretty much the nice brown depicted. They have 40 gram Thinsulate Flex, which is recommended for higher body heat activity. Not real thick or bulky. I haven't tested them out in below freezing yet, but I guess they should be adequate in let's say the 20 degrees F area. Sub zero, hmm... I kind of doubt it. We'll see. They are fine gloves; a little fabric on them, true, but not much. Way more leather. I intend to waterproof mine before extensive wearing in the elements. My hands are smallish, but the medium large fit nicely. In fact, I just don't stretch them as much as bigger hands would. The fingers are too long for me, but then with smaller hands, I have shorter fingers. No biggy; afterall, I'm not doing fine crafts or handling tiny objects while wearing them. All in all a good value. I'm very pleased with them. (I just wore them outside in 21 F for 15 minutes and my hands were getting cool, not frigid.) These are not an adequate substitute for heavier and bulkier Arctic type wear.
These might be okay gloves to go out to empty the trash or pick up some wood for the fire, but for me they are not ski / winter outdoors most of the day gloves. I can usually wear a medium glove but ordered these in Large and they were still too tight for my comfort... so they definitely seem to run small. They leather, though I did not have them analyzed, it did not appear to me that there was any leather on the glove, plus they didn't seem as if they would be warm / they were not well insulated in my opinion. For a teens skier or snow boarder, if they fit, being a youngster they might generate enough heat for the gloves to suffice. Overall, they seemed about worth what they cost and I prefer something worth more to wear to ski.
I assumed these gloves (which are super soft leather) would have some type of lining (even if not thinsulate). I like them but can only wear them for show - not in truly cold weather
These are very warm as well as pretty decent to look at. Very much wishing I had ordererd the XL. My hands are not really big, but these gloves fit so tight they cut off the circulation to my left hand after wearing them awhile.
