I thought I'd remind folks of this very good deal that is still going on. I bought a pair and got to try them out a couple of weeks ago on a very brutal day at Wolf Laurel, NC. When I got the glove I thought it felt a little bulky but I did not find that extra insulation cumbersome while skiing. Temperatures were in the single digits with winds in excess of 20 MPH. The wind chill was in the negative teens and my exposed face felt the painful sting at the top of the mountain. I skied for three hours and was outside the entire time. Overall, the glove performed very well and was noticeably very warm in the palm and mid section. Surprisingly... well maybe not, my finger tips did get a little cold a couple of times on the lift ride up but they were quicky warmed when I drew them up into my palm. I thought the full finger deer skin wrap would have helped prevent this. Conditions this day, however, were probably some of the harshest I have ever experienced.
I can see this glove being very good on deep powder or snow days. The extra long gauntlet, draw strings, wrist straps, and idiot leashes are great deep snow features. Also, because of the excellent leather construction, it would be tough enough for in-bound hikes while carrying skis by hand. For me, I will use this glove on powder days and those days when the high temperatures stay below freezing. Sunny, high-20 to mid-40 degree days, a lighter glove will probably work better. Spring gloves for anything higher than mid 40's.
Cabela's also has good prices on Gore Tex XCR gloves, and some with removeable liners. Be sure to check out the fancy cammo ones.
