I work on board tug boats in the harbor of NY/NJ and wanted a waterproof cold weather glove to handle wet lines during the winter, or to wear in a cold rain where every other garment of mine is warm and waterproof.

This is a decent glove if you dont plan on actually getting it wet. (putting it under a faucet isn't really a good test). In actual use, I've found that the gloves are more water "resistant", not waterproof. They start out fine, but after 10 minutes of handling wet lines, the inside starts to get wet and cold real fast. I still wear them, but shelf them for PVC lobsterman gloves when I know they're really going to get wet.

On the flip side, if you're only going to get them wet occasionally, or accidentally, these will be fine. (chances are though, such people won't be shopping for a glove labeled "waterPROOF"). There could also be more insulation... in the future, I dont think I'll consider a glove with a thin fleece lining to be a "winter" glove.

On the good side, the dexterity is good, enough to operate a handheld VHF radio, (dont expect to send text messages with them) and after 3 months of constant abuse, they've held up great.

3 stars though for not living up to a major selling point.

I bought these gloves because the winter gloves I've had are big and puffy and make doing pretty much any sort of small work impossible.

These gloves, while a little more cumbersome than I had hoped are very warm and very waterproof while still being very breathable and easy to work with.

I've also used them whenever I need to do some work outside whether that be turning valves or picking up tree branches and while I'm not sure they'd stand up to all day work for more than a winter so far they've done everything I've asked.

One problem that I have had with them is that the liner has a tendency to get bunched up in the fingers and sometimes that can be a little bit of a pain in the butt to get unbunched. It only happens in one of my gloves though so maybe it is a rare thing.

EDIT: 12/22/2010 I bought another pair when I saw them pop up on the deal of the day page. They are still in the package though because the original set I bought are still going strong. After almost 3 winters none of the seems are busting, the gloves are still waterproof and as warm as the day I bought them. I'm very happy with them.

i bought these gloves because the reviews and the ad said they were warm, waterproof, and rugged. they are actually pretty tough and dont seem to wear out quickly. and they are close fitting enough you can grab things with them, and they even look pretty cool! but my complaint is that they are not warm enough! in 40f degree weather, riding my bicycle, my hands freeze! my hands would be better off in fists stuffed in my pockets without gloves! and they are not really waterproof, but more like water resistant. i expected more from these gloves and i was let down. if you are not in really cold weather and not in an area that it rains often, then these gloves will do you fine. but if you actually need WARM and WATERPROOF gloves, i recommend something else.

I love these gloves. They are very well made and fit great and are comfortable to wear. I work on the flightline at the 177th Fighter Wing in NJ and on the coldest days my hands stay warm and dry. I also have a pair of their non winter weight gloves which are also fantastic.

I have looked long and hard for a warm, waterproof, and tough winter glove. I could not be more pleased with these!!!! I'm a crew chief in the Air Force in Pittsburgh which means I work outside all the time. These gloves give me enough dexterity to do a lot of tasks that others cannot do with normal winter gloves.

Also, I work in Pyrotechnics and I do several winter shows a year. These gloves are tough enough that they have survived 3 shows. A normal pair of work gloves you'd buy at sears would normally last that long before they are worn through. I still use these gloves every day at my full time job at the base. 6 other people i work with have purchased them already.

Highly recommended.

...I'd also like to add that during a fireworks show i ran a nail through the outside shell of one of the fingers and they are STILL waterproof.

Ordered these to work in freezing and wet conditions, scrubbing out water and feed bowl for wild animals at a wildlife refuge this winter. The lining of the right glove broke free from the glove on the second use. The "thermal" lining failed on the third use. My hands were frozen and felt a bit damp so the waterproofiness may have failed too.

Very disappointed. This is a decent bit of money to spend on gloves that fail so quickly.

I'm sure the gloves would perform better in milder conditions. Maybe instead of calling them "Winter" gloves, "Fall" or "Spring" would be more appropriate.

I bought these to use while riding my motorcycle because the description said 100% windproof. Well this morning I had to ride my bike for about 40 miles in 32 degree (Fahrenheit) weather and my fingers absolutely froze! I even tried putting a leather shell glove over top of them and that cut down on the wind but my fingers were still very cold. I had to stop 4 times to take off the gloves and warm up my fingers. I will agree they feel very good and are quite comfortable but I definitely cannot recommend these for motorcycle riding in cold weather.

I bought these gloves for my husband as a Christmas present as he works outside on our farm in all kinds of weather. He loves them! He tells me they are so warm and keep his hands dry. No complaints at all.

I am pleased with these gloves. I was looking for something to snowblow with. Something that would keep my hands warm and dry. While they are warm, I was hoping for alittle bit warmer. Work well as long as it's not freezing out. They definetly are waterphoof.
My hands never felt wet. The fit is nice. They are not bulkie which help in moving your fingers during the running of the machine.
I would recomend.

I purchased these gloves for use in a sub freezer (-15 to -25 degrees). I work in there for an hour to three hours at a time and these gloves are great for that. I was a little worried about the size of the gloves, since they fit so tightly, but to my surprise, they kept my fingers warm. They are just as warm as the downhill skiing gloves I purchased for almost 4 times the cost of these.

As far as durability, I have not had an issue using these gloves. There has been no wearing or tearing anywhere and I have been using them for 4 months now. Other gloves that I have used for the same purpose have started wearing by this time.

For the waterproofing, I cannot say since I do not use them snowy or wet conditions.

For the purpose of drying out from sweaty hands, they dry out pretty quickly. Usually about 4 hours in open air and they are completely dried out from the inside.

All in all, I would highly recommend these gloves for working in cold conditions.
