Wind Hood Softshell Gloves is rated out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by handyman from Very good features These are an excellent glove for working or trekking in temps into the single digits. Especially if paired with an overmitt in wet conditions. The stowable wind hood provides a surprising level of extra warmth when dexterity isn't needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Juice from Quite Possibly my Favorite Gloves of all time I've worn these gloves everywhere from Alaska to walking my dog around the block. Hands heating up? pull back the hood and let them breath. Getting cold again, mitten-ize them in seconds. Love the leather palms as well from a durability standpoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lars from Multitasking Gloves/Mitten like effect During cold weather climbing, biathlon, skiing cross country or downhill or working outdoors these gloves are great because sometimes the wind chill freezes the fingers. The wind block of the hood reduces the heat loss just enough to keep the fingers warm without changing back and forth between gloves and mittens all the time. Remember each time you change gloves for mittens your fingers have to warm up the mittens you just put on and come to equilibrium with the cold. So your fingers get colder for awhile anyway. The Wind Hood Softshell Gloves eliminate the effect and your hands get warmer faster because you are covering fingers that just need the heat loss reduced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Forever_student from My Favorite Gloves I've had these gloves for a couple years now, and I LOVE them. They're my go to gloves for almost any moderate temperature adventure. I use them for ski touring when temps are >/= 30F. I use them for bike commuting when the temps are 40-60F. I use them for running at 20-40F. I even use them for driving when it's below freezing outside and the car is cold. The extra wind shield also helps a tiny bit when the air itself isn't that cold, but the windchill is. The only improvement I could offer, and this is a tiny thing, is making the wrist entry a tiny bit larger. I've never had a glove that fit as perfectly as these once I get my hand inside, but getting my hand through the wrist entry is a tight squeeze every time, even after 2 years of rockin' these. After two years, and hundreds of hours of use, tons of snow and moisture, they're finally starting to wear out, and I'm looking to replace them. The best recommendation I could offer is to buy the same things a second time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by StevovonE from Performed better than I could have expected Bought these for some snowshoeing and winter camping. Was tired of hauling around my bi alone ski gloves, but was concerned these would be warm enough. They performed exceptionally well, keeping my hands warm when needed and cool enough when exercising. The over mitts were not something I was looking for, but made a huge difference when the sun went down and the wind picked up. These are now my first choice for my winter hands protection, and will only bring other gloves for digging in the snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bear from Just what I was looking for These are great. Before I purchased (online), my concern was that they might be heavier weight than I wanted. But it turned out that these are great for my run. It's highly variable depending on people but I've been going for several mile run in -20F every day with no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda from Gift for my husband These were a Christmas present for my husband from my parents. They are exactly what he was looking for! He has only had to wear them once but he said they kept his hands nice and warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McSteve from Best glove for backcountry skiing ..in my opinion Some gloves are too Whimsy and cold or too bulky and hot. This BD Wind Hood gloves are now my ‘go to’ gloves now. Here’s why? 90% of the time I use these gloves for backcountry skiing, XC skate skiing, and climb approaches. When it gets wikid cold I slip over the hood for down skiing or it gets windier. These gloves are phenomenal! I believe that your other competitor used these first about 3 years ago but they fell apart in a DAY. The BD gloves make better quality products. Thanks BD
