Rated 1 out of 5 by MichiganDockJumper Not warm, not comfortable
I received these as a gift for Christmas two years ago. I've only worn them a couple of times. I do not have large hands, yet these gloves are so tight and bulky that I can barely bend my fingers. The seams allow air infiltration and leave your fingers cold even when the weather is relatively warm, the teens and 20's. I wouldn't even consider wearing them in colder weather. I've gone back to wearing knit gloves and mittens, they're warmer and leave you some use of your hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TNMOM4127 Very Warm and water resistant
I LOVE THESE GLOVES!!! Best glove purchase I've ever made! Moved from FL to TN and have never had a need for gloves to REALLY keep my hands warm. Now I do! We've had 2 snow storms this winter. Wore these gloves to play in the snow with my son and they kept my hands Dry and Warm! They work so well, my son has stolen them from me to wear because they are so much better than the men's gloves I had gotten for him. Came back to the website to order him his own pair, but now they're sold out. Guess we'll have to share them until next winter. LOL. I am Very Satisfied with these gloves!

Needed warmer gloves to protect me against the unreasonableness of Minnesota winters, and these fit the bill. They are too warm for being active above about 10 degrees (you'll sweat), but for 20-30 minutes in subzero temps they do just fine (longer than that, if not engaged in vigorous activity, I recommend mittens, not gloves). Which makes the my new favorite gloves for going around town until I find a way to move to Oregon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rezendezm very warm but sized oddly
These are indeed very warm gloves! In fact I had to take them off periodically to let my hands cool off a bit. My hand measures a clear medium and that's what I ordered. However the fit is very odd.
The thumb fits well but the fingers look and feel very stubby. At first I thought the down just needed to get packed down a bit, but I have come to realize that the fingers are simply cut very short.
My fingers are normal sized and I keep my nails short. The length of each of the fingers on the gloves is about 1/2 inch shorter than the length of my fingers! The exception is the thumb, which fits perfectly! Now that I've measured the gloves and my fingers, I understand why they look so odd and fit so uncomfortably.
I'm very sad as they are a beautiful color and very cozy. I will be returning them as the fit is driving me so crazy that I've not been wearing them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by retired1950 not happy
I ordered these gloves hoping to get a warm and useful pair of gloves.
Much to my chagrin, these gloves were bulky and stiff. I suppose if you were going to ski they might be okay, but for my use of keeping my hands warm and driving, they did not meet my expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DevotedBeanShopper Very warm but............
The elastic at the wrist is too loose, cold air and snow gets to the
wrist. These need velcro or tighter elastic, wrists get cold!!
Gloves are very warm though!

They seem very durable, and have a good, snug fit.
I do not like the feel of the furry synthetic material next to my skin.
Especially in winter, when the hands are are a little dry, this kind of material feels like it's wicking all the moisture from the skin.
I also don't like synthetics intimate with the skin because the stuff is absorbed by the skin.
It is a shame they don't put flannel, or wool or another comfortable, natural material inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LondonHereICome Excellent fit and ever so warm and ready for snow
I bought these for the New England winter weather that I have been away from for several years. Snow and cold is in the forecast and I need waterproof and warm gloves and these are what the forecast asked for. London is on the forecast too and I heard its windy and colder there, hopefully no snow, so I need extra warmth and excellent fit for suitcase holding. These fit the trip to a T. Definitely would recommend them to a friend and I recommended them to my niece who I am traveling with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neveamante Warmest gloves I have ever purchased
I live in the Central Valley of California. Although we don't get nearly as cold as my relatives in New England...it still gets cold in the early morning. I walk my dog before sunrise and I love the cold. However, I have bought countless pairs of gloves and could not find any that would keep the tips of my fingers from freezing. A month ago I purchased your State Parka and there was a suggestion to purchase these gloves with the coat. I thought, oh well, I will try them, but I know my finger tips will still freeze. I wore them today and my finger tips didn't even feel the cold, although it was one of the coldest mornings to date! I just can't sing high enough praise for these wonderful gloves! I would recommend them to everyone!

I bought these for my wife to replace a pair of gloves she had and loved for many years. She now loves these new gloves and I gained some credibility. Thanks LL Bean!
