Now keep in mind that my winters are usually milder than other folk, but I have these and love them. They are waterproof (I actually use them a lot for picking the chunks of ice out of the tanks after chopping it up) and warm. They are a little bulky but not nearly as bad as many other winter gloves. I don't have any problem doing relatively delicate movements with my hands. I finally got 2 new pair the other day because the one pair that I had been wearing for about 3 winters finally wore completely out LOL.
We do have the occasional cold snap where the wind chill is down a fair amount below zero and these still kept me toasty warm. Even just a few days ago it was rainy and wet and cold and windy, the rest of my body was completely frozen but my fingers were still moderately warm...and that was in my old broken down pair that had holes in the leather in half the fingers LOL.
Also, because my hands are long and thin with really long fingers, I've always had trouble finding gloves that fit. All of them are either too wide and floppy or the fingers were too short and the place where the pinky and ring fingers come together on the gloves were up by the middle joint of my pinky. These fit my hands perfectly.
