Rated 1 out of 5 by Luc514 from Not what I was hopping for After a few uses I've found that this glove just doesn't fit. I grabbed this glove for winter approaches when I generally get really warm. The fingers are too long for a medium and especially the pinky is a 3/4in too long. The pinky is a regular irritant for BD gloves but this is over the top. The tactile pads are stiff, don't wrap on the fingers and don't work with my Samsung phone's screen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Zach the Outdoor Addict from Love the right glove, left's silicon grip fell off Right glove gets 5 stars, the left gets 2. So I'd give 2.5 stars if there was that option. I've had these for about a month and I have used them only for trail running/hiking with my BD Distance Carbon Z poles. They don't see daily use and after about the 5th sub 6 mile outing the left grip started detach from the thumb and index finger. These are warm enough for me down to 25 degrees and are a perfect match for the Carbon Z poles. I really really like these gloves when at 100%. I'd give a 5 star review if the grip lasted at least 6 months, but three weeks is too fast to unravel. I want to continue using them but the difference in feel now between the two gloves with the poles is too different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacob from Great active glove These gloves are great for ski touring, winter running, light snow removal days, and most things outside when it’s cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coondog from Great gloves for 3 seasons This is my third pair of these gloves. They are great for scrambling, bushwhacking, and general mountain wear when you need to protect your hands, but don’t need a thicker glove for warmth. One downside to the new pair: the fingertip fabric on index finger and thumb were changed to a slippery nylon, the tips would be better in thin leather/synthetic that had better grip - since the gloves may often be used for scrambling where using your fingers on easy climbin

Rated 5 out of 5 by juice from Surprisingly Warm I use these gloves on windy and cool days when I am backpacking with trekking poles. They do a good job at keeping my hands warm and blocking wind. I wouldn't wear them in snow or winter, they are just a little extra protection from cool days and nights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RitchieP from Great value for money Bought a couple of months ago; fit is nice. Wind and rain proof, I’ve worn the gloves this winter between -6 Celsius and +4 Celsius and they just did what they need to do: keep my hands warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Luke Nomad from Grippy! I would not recommend these gloves for much below 30 degrees. The grip is exceptional, the touch screen tips works as well as can be expected. I thought the area in the palms was bulky for my long, skinny hands. As another reviewer pointed out, they are great for driving, I like them for wind protection when i need to have good grip in moderately cold temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WRMF from Great light glove I have fairly poor circulation in my hands and still find these gloves to be very serviceable when active. For me, 25 degrees is pushing it a bit without a liner glove (I use a possum fur/merino mix liner), but, if its not too windy and I am at least mildly active, I can get away with these to around freezing temps. A liner gives me a few more degrees of use. I think this glove really gives a lot of value for the price. They have good grip due to the textured palm, which is super helpful. Personally, I could do without the touchscreen material to increase fingertip dexterity. But, I realize the masses probably would prefer the touchscreen compatibility, so I'm not going to ding them due to that. To me, these are just about a perfect light glove and they hit a good price point--excellent if you can catch them on sale. If I like something, that is usually its death knell. Hopefully, BD won't stop making these anytime soon. I do plan to stock up the next time I catch them on sale though.
