Didn't really want to spend quite this much on gloves for my 17 yr old daughter, since she loses them all! But the steering wheel in her car is like ice in the winter mornings.
I was also scared to get the "one sized" as she has thin, but LONG fingers. They fit perfectly. Let me add that I have fat sausage like fingers and they fit me fine.
And the 'leather' along the fingers keeps the steering wheel from sliding out of her hands like other 'fuzzy' gloves do. She also thinks she's a bit more 'mature' now since she has these gloves.
It was worth the extra money to get these "lined" gloves. The lining is super soft, not overly bulky so the gloves stay slim looking, and keep her hands toasty warm. I really thought they'd need to be stuffed to the gills with lining to keep her hands warm, but these work. Do we live where there are freezing snow drifts? No. It only gets to about 32 degrees every now and then. And we don't have any 'snow' for her to go play in. So waterproofing is not a problem.
They are just really nice, warm, well fitting, classy looking gloves.
The color I bought, Navy, is a nice deep rich looking color. Not cheap, washed out Navy.
I think I may also buy her some Red ones, for a change.
Shipping was super fast to us, and was ordered right before Christmas!
Would HIGHLY recommend.
UPDATE 10/29/12 - Was going over some old reviews to see if anything needed updating and saw the review from "Long Skinny Fingers". Read her review because I was curious as to why the low rating. (AND I'm thinking of getting some red ones). I am perplexed how she can say the fingers are too tight. My daughters gloves just happen to be here and I re-tried them on.
I wear an 8-9 ring size, and they fit me perfectly. Are they a bit snug? Yes. But nothing to cut off your circulation. And I find that the snugness actually feels good. Like a mini massage. I have complete flexibility with the fingers, and no 'pulling' problem when I make a fist. I measured my middle finger, the longest, and it measures exactly 3 1/4" from the base of the finger to the tip. 3 1/2" if I include my fingernail. I have to say, even pulling them on hard, as far down as they'll go, my fingernail doesn't poke the end of the glove. My daughter has even longer fingers. They fit her great. And my largest finger measures almost exactly 2 1/2" in circumference.
Maybe "Skinny" got a defective pair. If so, sorry Skinny. Just that I've never had a problem in all the years with Isotoner. Gonna buy some red ones. Yep.
UPDATE 11/24/12 - Bought the BLACK gloves for my daughter as she got a black winter coat. India ink black color, black as squid ink black. Not washed out or that 'light black' color. There's black and then there's black.... FAST ship. Same great fit. Same great everything. Yep LOVE 'EM!. Still have to get those red ones!...lol
