Rated 1 out of 5 by donho from Don't Waste Your Money I thought these would be a good glove for backcountry skiing. I was a bit skeptical when I received them yesterday, since they seemed pretty light weight. It was 15 degrees F this morning, so I wore them while shoveling the deck. What a joke. My hands were cold. I thought these might be a good replacement for the black diamond gloves I bought probably close to 25 years ago, which are probably the warmest gloves I've ever owned, but I'm completely disappointed. No way these are worth $199.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kootenay Avalanche Course from Fantastic Glove - 1 little thing Fantastic Glove with a great liner. One cool adaptation I made was to clip the liner to the glove, so that when doing fine motor maneuvers, the glove hangs out of the way, but accessible for when the maneuver is finished.
