Rated2out of5byJoshLfromComfortable but not warm enoughI took the gloves on a snow shoeing hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. It got down to around 0 degrees at night and these gloves were not nearly adequate. While they are very soft and comfortable, they do not keep your hands very warm. I got almost as much warmth from a much smaller pair of North Face Apex gloves. It is a big bulky glove that is difficult to do small tasks with (lighters, zippers, shoestrings, etc) while not providing adequate warmth.

Rated4out of5byTuifromGood warm glovesI got these gloves in 12/2011 and really like them with some caveats. They are crazy warm, almost to the point of excess when doing any strenuous activity. I find that I often end up taking them off because my hands get too warm when hiking or snow shoeing if it isn't really cold out, but for those really bitterly cold days, or if you're just standing around outside on a more mild day, these gloves are awesome.
The other issue I've had is if my hands get wet and I try to put the gloves on, the nice comfy liner gets bunched up and I can't get them on right, which when it happens is wicked annoying.
Considering the bulk and warmth, finger dexterity is very good; it's pretty easy working zippers and the like with the gloves on. I've never used them with handwarmers, so I can't comment on that functionality, but another nice bit that I appreciate is they have a clasp that clips the gloves to each other... nice for hanging them up when taking them off so they don't fall in the snow or water or something.
Overall I recommend.

Rated2out of5byPNWclimberfromAll style, no functionSo many things should be going right for this glove, but they simply didn't. It does have a good grip and dexterity in the fingers. However, the glove wasn't nearly warm enough for my attempts to ski in it when the temps were below 20 degrees. The heat pack pocket isn't breathable enough for the packs to actually activate, and there is too much fabric between the heat and your hand to really reap any benefit.
On top of that, I had an issue with the lining of several fingers bunching up as I removed the glove, making it impossible to put back on. I never did get the right pinky into the glove, so it sat there curled over against my palm all day, which despite the added risk of being injured in that position made it the warmest of my ten fingers (the only moderately warm one).
It does stay dry and feels comfortable (other than the lining issue), so if you're kicking around town this will look good, but if you're really trying to hit it hard outdoors this is not what you need.
