by csrricfromNot good at/below 32°FI am a female and bought a small men's size. I bought them because they fit well, weren't bulky, and had a 10 °F rating. I wore them to a windy evening football game where the temperature was 32 °F. They were windproof, but my fingers were cold.

by donkeysmilefromSo-soPretty warm. I ride my bike, and the gloves have done well in 25 degrees. However, when I undid the velcro on the left glove, the stitching came undone instead, detaching half of the velcro patch on the left glove. This occurred on the second day of owning the gloves, and I wouldn't characterize myself as particularly aggressive when it comes to unvelcroing.

by Rob94551fromGood hiking and walking gloveI go walking and hiking in near freezing temps, 28 - 38 degree range. I started out with light Northface, Head, and Manzella gloves. (All of those were great for temps above 40, and not windy.
The Swix lived up to their advertising. I have been out in cold (upper 20's), and windy. They kept my hands warm throughout the hikes of 5 plus miles. I really found them comfortable and flexible. I didn't have to remove them to get into my pack or opening jacket zipper pockets. The velcro wrist adjustments were useful when it got really windy.
I did find when the temp raised closer to 40, they became to warm so the ligher gloves (mentioned above) worked better. On all day hikes of mixed temps I bring both with me, in winter.
One thing I would of wished they did was to have the glove glasped so when not on you can keep the pair together.
This glove was what I was looking for on the cold walks or hikes.
