This review is from: Alki'i Suede Palm 3M Thinsulate Thermal Insulation Fingerless Texting Work Gloves with Mitten Cover - 2 colors (Apparel)
The gloves are warm and the sleeves are long enough to cover any gaps between sleeves and hands. The suede palm pad is great for gripping items and a vehicle's steering wheel. The convertibility from mittens to fingerless gloves is a benefit when I need to root around in my bag for something, put on glasses, and with some difficulty, text or phone.

Unfortunately, the disadvantages of these gloves outweigh the advantages. I've got rather large woman's hands, but still, these gloves feel too big. The mitten part of the glove pulls away from my fingers too easily, exposing them to the cold air. The velcro patch that keeps the mitten flap out of the way when you're using your fingers - it's in the precise spot to scrape your skin when you scratch your nose. Ouch. And the velcro attachment between the two parts (mitten flap and the back of the glove) isn't very strong, so the two come apart prettily easily. After fewer than a dozen wearings, there's already a hole in one glove's sleeve.

The thumb flap gets in the line of vision when I'm trying to push phone buttons. Super annoying.

The overall concept is good; I'd just go with a different brand.
