by fromDexterity For Mild PNW climates Having owned a variety of gloves, including 3 for snow sports, I find that the SouthBack is a great choice for PNW resort skiing for the moderate to agressive person down to mid-20 degrees F. I wore this glove in various conditions from cold days to warm rainy days, and the glove has kept me warm and dry. My other gloves do this as well, but what makes these gloves different? The dexterity with these gloves allows me to navigate my zippers and grab gear without having to take off my gloves. With most of my other gloves, that are bulkier due to insulation, and build, I need to take off my gloves to perform some tasks. Leaving the hands to the elements makes them cold quickly. Now this is my main go to glove, and I only wear the other gloves when I'm expecting colder temps.

by fromGreat gloves Purchased for 10 degree plus weather and was not disappointed. Size runs true and left room in XL for a liner glove if I wanted. Active in adaptive ski instruction so wrist loop is a very handy feature for easy off and on.
