I bought these as a gift for my wife as her hands are always cold. Living in Idaho, she gets to use these quite often. She wears them in suburban applications (waiting at school bus stops or around town) as well as for ice fishing, hiking, and hunting. they're awesome to say the least.
Great gloves for glassing during the late season, super light. I would give 5 stars but I feel they are little small for large hands, my are average and they work great with a liner glove but if you have large hands these may not be big enough, I got the extra large pair. For me these are perfect.
Great gloves, perfect for glassing in the late season.
Great piece of gear to keep glassing longer in colder weather, and so light it's easy to always carry them up the mountain. The comfort of knowing I would have warm hands when I sat down after hiking helped me stay mentally strong every day on a week long hunt with temps around and below freezing (which feels cold to those of us that drive a desk for a living). These also work great after glassing when we hiked back to camp in the evenings to keep my hands warm until my body warmed up. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Both my husband and I ordered a size larger than our hands measured in the sizing fit since we wanted these to be warm, not technical. I was still able to fit them in my trekking pole straps and easily use zippers with them on. I measure a Small and ordered a Medium, he measured a Medium and ordered a Large.
If you're looking for something to glass with mid September - October, they will fit the bill. If you're looking for something to stuff in your pack as a just in case, they will fit the bill. If you're looking for something when the temperature really dips then look for something a little heartier.
