I got a pair of these gloves a few years ago and my husband politely said "thank you". He told me later they looked too fancy and not useful to him. Last year he started to wear them, when we had that bitter, long, cold spell. He loved how they felt, warm and not bulky at all. This past November around Thanksgiving he needed them again and couldn't find him. His disappointment was palpable. I bought him these new gloves for Christmas, though I wanted to give them to him sooner. He loves these gloves and was really happy to get them.
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.
These are very warm and nice. My husband loves them. They are lined and wear well. There is nothing to dislike. He loans them me, now that the temperatures are in the teens.
