These gloves are very high quality and are becoming more and more popular on the mountain. On the upside, I found them to be warm, dry and durable. On the downside, I found them to be quite stiff (I assume until broken in) and they appear to run a bit large. I bought size, Large, because I wanted to add a thin removable liner. Medium might have been a better choice but then if they're tight, your hands end up cold. They come with a waterproofing (Bees Wax?) that you have to rub on before the first use.
