by ParadingLunaticfromUpdateI attempted to update my old review but I could not find a way to do so. So instead I'm writing another review. I have recently returned this product to REI as they have already worn out. I purchased them in late November and in early January the etip portion of the gloves (especially on my right hand since I'm right handed) started to fray and shred. This was due to me handling the velcro cuff adjustments on my winter jacket. I'm a bit surprised that velcro caused it to shred. The left hand glove was starting to do the same so I figured it was time to return them and get something different. I wanted to get The North Face apex etip gloves but they were all out of mens sizes so instead I opted for the Marmot. One of the biggest differences I noticed with the Marmot unlike these is that there doesn't seem to be any special spot at the tip of the fingers where different thread or material is used to provide functionality with touch screens. I'm hoping these last a bit longer.

by ParadingLunaticfromComfortable and fairly warmSo far I've pretty much used these gloves for every day use/driving/fitness/etc. I've also used them as liners for a pair of skiing gloves I have. The gloves fit my hands great which is rare for me as usually gloves are too large or small for my hands. They're not all that great as liners because they're a little on the bulky side for that, but it does the job. One thing that would make the gloves a little better is if the palm side of the glove had some non slip material on them as the faux suede doesn't do the trick. The steering wheel is a little slick while wearing the gloves. They're slightly windproof but lose all insulating ability in anything more then a light breeze. Even when there isn't any wind my hands still get cold, but then again my hands are almost always cold anyways. Once I get warmed up running or working out they do a decent job providing enough insulation to keep my hands warm.
