Rated 2 out of 5 by JimR55 Just ok
I bought these gloves late last winter to wear to work, where I shovel snow on a college campus. They are an upgrade from the discount store gloves that they replaced. However they are definitely not waterproof, they get soaked through. Also they are not warm enough in the colder weather. If it is below about 20 degrees, I have to wear liners to stay warm. Also, the insides have gotten crackly, perhaps from the repeated wetting and drying. I let them dry on the radiator overnight. I am going to try to make it to the end of this season with these gloves, but I don't think I would buy them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deets Gloves are ok.
I read the reviews and thought these would be great for my husband. I figured if people shovel with them and raved about how good they were then, they would be good for my husband when he walks. Although these gloves kept him warmer than most, they didn't keep his hands as warm as he would like them to be.
To answer the question if I would recommend these gloves I'd say, "It depends on how you are going to use them. I guess for shoveling there're ok but for walking - NO!"

These gloves are the best I've ever owned! I think everyone should own a pair.

I have only had these gloves a short while but I have found that they are extremely warm and water resistant. They were a life saver in the latest snow storm to hit the northeast as they kept my hands warm and dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by fmd826 warm/not completely waterproof
I used the glove a few times going out to shovel and skii. its good if youre going to going into just snow like shoveling/ snow blowing. Maybe kids playing in the snow; or work outside maybe in cold and slightly damp conditions. I went skiing on a rainy day and it held up for about 2 hours (not continuous) however the glove was completely soaked through after a while.
So yes, for this price its an alright glove but not completely waterproof like the label claimed when I bought it at the store. Ill give the glove one thing though, it is comfortable, light and warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by polarvortex Stays dry but not warm below freezing
I purchased this so I stay dry while shoveling snow. It's definitely not made for below freezing temps like 7F during the past few days. The inner sleeve may seem cumbersome to get into the glove for some but I rather have it to keep the snow and ice out. So the con is that my fingers still felt frozen after 30 minutes outside shovelling snow when it was 20F.

Bought these for shoveling snow. Temperature in New England has been unusually cold. Gloves kept my hands warm. I know Mittens work the best, but these gloves worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JesseNJ Great winter gloves
Bought these gloves for my husband for Christmas. Just had our first real snowstorm yesterday and had the chance to use them. He loved them. Warm and comfortable with a nice snug fit. His first praise, "No snow on my wrists." The design of the cuffs doesn't allow for snow to creep in while shoveling, a huge plus. And they're completely waterproof. We have a corner property, so he was outside for quite a while. Recommend these gloves to anyone who has to deal with a lot of snow during winter, even those with snowblowers. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by snowboarderguy Best Gloves Ever!
I purchased these gloves for my son who is a big snowboarder. He just used them for the first time a few days ago and again today. He said they are hands down the best gloves he has ever had. His hands stay warm and dry on the slopes.
