I have worn these since October of 2010 as my cold weather running gloves and also as my hiking gloves. I get sweaty hands pretty easily so I needed something that was going to be warm enough to keep my hands from freezing on a long run, but also not over heat them. These do an excellent job of doing both. They conform to my hand great so there is no baggyness flopping around, they also fit well under a shell but will stay put on your hand if you go to take your outer glove off (which could be a good thing, I like it.) I have worn them hiking in the snow a few times and they kept my hands pretty warm even when I had an ice axe in my hand or was using trekking poles. When they got wet, all I did was wring them out and put them in my pocket to dry out or at least warm up a bit. When I pulled them out I was surprised that they were almost dry. The gloves wash well which is nice especially after wiping snot off of my face after running or hiking all day! I haven't dried them yet though, usually just set them on top of the dryer. I will be buying two more pairs as back ups!
I have been using these for a while now for running and just casual wear around the city. Im in Chicago and its pretty windy but these gloves seem to do the job and the best thing about them is that I can make snowballs with out the gloves getting wet, that was surprising. But you do have to remember they are liners not full blown gloves its good for casual things. They are not big and bulky either they definitely do the job of keeping my hands warm or not freezing.Only thing is I wish they had the thing for your touch screen phone for the fingers, only complaint.
These are awesome liners, they're comfortable, and warm for high output activities. I use these for winter hiking, the leather palm is awesome, and gives you a good grip on an ice axe. They dry very quickly! Be careful, I have had to fix the seam on the side of the leather palm, the stitching seems a bit thin, for such a high wear area.
I wear these during winter , using them with trekking poles in the lower Cascades. I use a shell mitt over them during the rain, but these gloves are unbelievably comfortable and warm. A little pricey but worth it. They absorb water and are not water resistant but these are real nice stuff! Temps in the low 30s are no problem.
This is a glove I use a lot. May be the glove I use the most 9 months of th year! Always want to have two pair on hand just in case. BC skiing, ski track, cold rock (not that durable). I use them every where.
The wear well. The cost is better here than I have found it anywhere. I use the glove liners for days when it's not too cold and they slip inside my outer gloves when it's really cold and snowy. I highly recommend these gloves.
These are average at best. They were definitely not as warm as I expected, and my hands underneath my ski gloves . Being made of Polartec fleece, I expected them to be pretty darn warm, as my Polartec fleece jacket is just that. Unfortunately, these did not live up to my expectations and my hands still felt cold. Really cold. Not uncomfortable biting pain cold, but nearly there I feel. Now my ski gloves could also very well be culprit to contributing to my cold hands, but I also tried them with some very thin Hestra merino wool liners my friend had, and those worked better. I only bought these thinking these would work even better and my hands would be really warm. But that was not the case. I would also prefer the fingers also be reinforced with a full leather palm as the Woolweight ones to add to the durability of it being able to be used as a solo glove. I will also say as a disclaimer that my digits seem to get cold easier than alot of other people's. Overall, I think I would go with something else and am quite disappointed in these.
I used these as a middleweight, with a liner underneath and an expedition mitten over on a trip to Alaska. They were doin their job until boom, I whip em out on a hot glacier day to probe out a campsite and they got shredded. As most know, probing is not a fun task, but I would expect a BD product to last more than one hard day of use. My thumbs punched holes through the glove the rest of the trip!! Bottom line; my digits were displeased with my brain for that decision.
I bought these because I wanted a tight fitting glove in the fall and winter. These did the job but wore out quickly. I did 3 winter backpacking trips and after the third I noticed the seams started to pull. I patched them up with some thread and now they're back to working condition.
These things are great for handling gear in the winter. Although the seam split on the wrist on one of them after about 3 uses.
