I love these gloves. The fact that they are lined helps to make them extra warm to wear. I don't care about being able to dial and answer cell phones with them on since I currently don't use a cell phone. However, I do have to go outside in the bitter cold at times and these gloves have been keeping my hands warm this winter. I am happy to have them, especially since I lost one of my old gloves in early winter and knew I needed to replace them.
