Nice, but too small (for XL)
on November 21, 2013
I'll repeat what everyone else is saying because it's true. Fast delivery (came within a week), very nice packaging (perfect for a gift), they look nice and feel good*.
Now here's where I get critical. I wish they made these gloves in an XXL because the XL size isn't big at all. If you're wondering if it'll fit you, here are my measurements... measuring from the top of my middle finder down to my palm, 7 & 3/4 inches. My body height, 6 ft, 3 in.
They feel fine when I'm not clinching things, but when I make a fist the gloves become extremely tight. Also, when I spread my thumb and index finger far apart the glove begins to stretch away from my hand, leaving about a half inch space between the inside of the glove and my hand... I would imagine if I tried carrying something heavy that the gloves would probably rip there. I have somewhat skinny hands, so If you have fat fingers, these are definitely not for you.
Other than the size issue, the gloves are really nice... the touch screen capabilities rock! It worked perfect on my iPhone, and my laptop touch pad.
As for the warmth, I haven't worn them outside yet. I probably wouldn't use them to go camping, skiing or anything where you'll be out in the cold for 3 or 4 hours. I'd use them for walking my dog, going to a club, brushing snow off my car, and driving.
If they made these in a larger size I would return mine immediately. Would I recommend them? Yes. But not if you have long hands like me.
