I think the problem with these gloves is quality control. I have some Sealskinz socks and they are totally waterproof - same material. My gloves, on the other hand, are not. They appear to leak at the base of the fingers, suggesting the manufacturer finds it difficult to make a more complicated shape than socks. I have heard wildly opposing views on these and the reviews here certainly back this up - I think some gloves must be waterproof while some are not! They say every product is water pressure tested before leaving the factory, but clearly someone is not doing their job or else the waterproof-ness deteriorates somehow between the factory and purchase!
If they were waterproof they would be very good. The only other real problem, as someone else mentioned, is that snow sticks to them far too well, so you have to continually knock it off or your hands freeze.
Edit: I've tried four different pairs and none were waterproof. Bought two pairs, tested them and took them back. On the other hand, the Sealskinz Versatility Gloves ARE waterproof and warmer than these for about the same price.

I sent mine back after getting soaked - Sealskinz said there was NO manufacturing fault they had tested them and if I wanted a refund to get back to the supplier.
So how do they test them? They are NOT waterproof
