Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good liners, good shells, in 1 package! I wear these everyday while biking to work. There are really two gloves here: the insulating liners and the water-resistant shells. The liners keep my hands warm down to about 28 degrees, but keep in mind I am biking so the wind is probably a factor there. I've worn the shells over the liners for extra protection, but not yet by themselves. Either way, they've kept my hands dry enough. Bonus: the rubber grips on the fingers of the liners make it possible to use these with my iPhone, but I'm guessing They'll wear away too much after only 1 season. Also, the back-of-hand pockets make perfect hand warmer compartments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Versatility I like the option to wear the liner alone and with the waterproof slip-over. I wear the liner in cool weather and for driving when also cool. Combined they are still lightweight and flexible, and the slip-over is fully waterproof. And together they are slim enough to slide under a raincoat sleeve cuff to provide a waterproof seal. My only issue with the gloves was what size to purchase. My hand measured close to the medium but I ordered both that and large. Large was the best fit so I recommend others consider that the gloves may be a bit undersized.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Outer Glove Best Part of Glove I had originally bought these gloves to use as a lightweight pair of backpacking gloves. I liked the idea of being able to house an outer shell in the zippered pouch and being able to convert the gloves to a pair of windproof and waterproof gloves using the outer shell. I typically backpack in colder weather with daytime highs in the 30's, 40's, 50's. These glove will not keep your hands warm. My hands were always cold wearing these gloves (inner glove only) but not to the point of being uncomfortable. My hand were slightly warmer wearing the inner glove and outer glove combinations. The outer shell is the true gem of this glove. I have since ditched the inner glove and now use a pair of regular fleece gloves which do keep my hands warms. I use the outer shell when backpacking in wet weather to keep my fleece gloves dry. Really wished someone would make a pair of fleece gloves with a zippered pocket and a windproof/waterproof outer shell or someone would manufacture a windproof/waterproof outer shell made to go over a fleece glove. I would only recommend buying these gloves for the outer shell only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but a few issues I really like these gloves, I got tired of the lousy pairs that soak up water and/or leave your hands freezing cold due to poor insultion that you get at local stores and was determined to find a pair at REI. I didn't need a set that had the long cuffs for winter sports, but I wanted some of the weather-resistant qualities they have. Not so easy to do. The good part is that these gloves do a good job with versatility. You have the cool-weather cloth liner that gives decent grip and good insulative qualities. I wish it had PED touch screen finger-tips, but hey, you can't have everything. The slip-on shell does a gvery good job of keeping out water and wind. I used this set of gloves outdoors with my kid in the foot of snow we just got, they were warm and comfortable. The one thing I like about the gloves is also something I don't like - the removable shell. It's great they're removable and you can stash them in back of the hand zipper pouch, but they fit too loosely over the glove. They have almost no grip. I found myself having to pull the shell back down over the glove on several occasions to keep snow out from between the shell and liner. Being slippery it was often hard to keep a sure grip on anything as the liner tried slipping off the glove or the object out of one's hand. These gloves really need some sort of "keeper" for the shell, either an elastic band, a snap, hook or velcro, to keep it in place. If they could do this and maybe add some grip material for the shell fingertips, the gloves would be perfect. Would I get these gloves again? Yes, unless I could find something better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best lightweight gloves i have owned It is about time someone made a waterproof glove that was comfortable yet allowed your hand motions to remain dexterous as well as having enough grip to twist objects when needed. the lightweight rainproof outer-shell fits, un-noticed into a zippered pouch set over the back of the hand. Brilliant. Weighs in at 3oz

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid winter gloves I've had these for about two weeks and they're very practical. This is my first winter cycling and I didn't want to deal with huge bulky gloves and liners. It might be pushing it to call them stylish, but they are sleeker than most others and not bulky, something that makes gripping my bike's handlebars much easier than I imagine larger gloves would do. For temperatures with windchill below the high 20s, I need handwarmers -- but another reason I chose these gloves is the convenient handwarmer pouch. The liners seem very thin but are a great addition on windy days and really do cut down the cold. I actually bought two pairs, in part because i lost the liners for mediums, but then discovered that I can fit them over my dressy leather gloves on really cold days (for me, that's when it gets in the low 20s or teens and below). The mediums are a little tight, but I like these enough to buy another pair in large, which should give a little more room for the leathers and replace the liners I lost. The men's medium alone on my hands (I'm female) are a tad large, but workable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Gloves These gloves are a perfect combination of warmth and durability. They are a bit tight around the wrist - but in a good way that keeps the cold/snow out. I wore them (with the shell) in 25 degree evening while camping and they kept me happy, I wouldn't push much below that temperature though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great OR product. One of my favorite OR products. Best used when temps are 25-45F, or you're working hard.

Are the shell gloves really waterproof?  They are not seam sealed...

Asked by: drpetzl
These gloves are waterproof. They are backed by a waterproof and breathable Pertex Shield DS stretch ripstop fabric shell.
