We live in New York where winter is very cold.Thick gloves are absolutley necessary to be outside from november to march. The temperature has been beloew zero all week and these gloves have made going outside and snowblowing a breeze. they fit great and keep the fingers and hands totally warm. There is a clip that keeps them paired together so they dont get lost and an adjustable strap to keep snow from getting inside. Overall a great set of gloves with a cool design.
