I was looking for some nice warm winter gloves that still left me with the dexterity to say, put my cell phone in my pocket without taking the gloves off. These gloves fit the bill. They are very warm but still flexible enough to be able to use my fingers pretty well. They also seem to be extremely durable as I imagine they would have to be to use them horseback riding.
I think the stretchy warm cuff of the glove that snugly fits your wrist has a lot to do with the warmth of these gloves as it seems to be pretty effective at trapping the heat in there.
They seem to be pretty water resistant. As a test I put them under my kitchen faucet and the water mostly just beaded off the glove.
-Good dexterity for the size of glove
-Kind of nice and a little high tech looking
-Pretty water resistant
-A little pricey
-Don't have that nifty feature where you can use a cell phone touch screen with them on (not that I would fault them for not having that being that as far as I know horses aren't generally equipped with touch screen displays). I'm thinking of ordering some of that conductive thread and sewing it in to the fingers to make these touch screen compatible.
Side note: There is an older version of this glove out there with the same name and description. You can tell it's the older version based on the photos of the glove (they look somewhat different). The reviews that I read for the older one were fairly bad and they don't look as nice aesthetically so if you order the gloves somewhere just make sure the photo shows the new ones. You can see the new ones for reference on the manufacturers website.
These gloves are extremely durable - probably the best I've ever had. I'm wearing them daily during our winter and worn them during November when my wife and I moved. No tears or fraying, or even signs of wear.
The fit is very snug but not uncomfortable. I used their sizing chart and they fit well. They are a bit tough to get on but aren't uncomfortable once you're wearing them.
Now we get to the only con, warmth. In November when it was hovering around the 30's, give or take 10 degrees, my hands would sometimes sweat inside the gloves. They were still warm but if this type of thing makes you uncomfortable, you should be aware. Colder temperatures, like below 0 F and times when there is an extreme wind chill, prolonged use outside is not advisable. These gloves are just not meant for those extremely low temperatures. For those temperatures I would advise getting a good pair of mittens.
I imagine the name, Extreme Winter Glove, is probably for the extreme temperatures you would ride your horse, which is what these gloves were made for, not the extreme temperatures, you, a human being, will endure outside.
Bottom line, I love these gloves. Very durable and warm in cold weather above 15-20 F. For colder weather, buy a pair of mittens.
Heritage! Please make a pair of mittens with the same durability as these gloves! :)
I get more protection from my unlined leather work gloves than these and the work gloves were a third the price. These are also more stiff and unbendable than my leather work gloves and I had to take them off more than once to do simple tasks.
