These gloves fit great. They still have a bit of a bulky fingertip when compared to more shape conforming gloves, but for the thickness of the glove, it stays warm and I can still use my fingertips and grip things. I can wear mine with the zipper closed but it looks like a good innovation for someone who may have a thicker base of their palm or larger wrist... You can kind of adjust the tightness of the glove opening.
I got these for my boyfriend who always loses his gloves. I got him some nice dress gloves but these are for cold winters. These are super thick windproof and will help him and the Chicago winters. His hands are very sensitive to the cold and get very dry and cracked and these helped keep them protected. They are water resistant and windproof. Not sure about -40 proof though but warm enough for chicago!
Excellent cold weather gloves. I live in Minnesota that the temperature yesterday was -15 with a -40 wind chill. These gloves kept me warm during shoveling, cleaning snow off the car, going to get get gas an grocery shopping. I am ordering another pair for back up's.
-8 degrees this morning and -21 below with wind chill and my hands were cozy warm in these gloves. Very hard to find warm fleece gloves with nonslip palms. I have to hold my dog's retractable leash and keep a good grip and these are the best gloves I've found so far. Very happy with this purchase.
UPDATE: the hubby never comments on products. Said threse are the best gloves ever. Like these so much I bought three pairs! Warm and comfortable. Not too heavy. Perfect for cold winter days and nights. Bought a pair for my hubby.
Overall, very good gloves. Have used them operating equipment outdoors in temperatures around -10F and they kept my hands quite warm. It's important, however, the the wearer does his part by keeping his body core warm, thus allowing the body to provide optimal blood circulation to the extremities.
