I was looking for a pair of these for my teenage son who loves his fingerless gloves, but does suffer from Raynaud's and is affected by the cold. In addition he gets ezcema on his hands and so wool products can be irritating. I was particularly looking for ones where the thumb was covered (since this is not covered by the flap). These gloves look and feel brilliant. The fleece is thick enough to be warm but not so thick that you can't move your fingers. The elasticated wrist cover is quite long and very comfortable. They have some additional covering on the palm and inside of the thumb - presumably to help with grip. In addition to all this, they are supposed to be waterproof - so will be great for our British summers! :-)
Will update on durability after they have been used for a while.
