Although I haven't yet tried these out on the slopes, they do appear as if they will be more than suitable for what I need. They are very comfortable with no scratchy bits. The fastening is a *little* awkward with the poppers, but I do like the look they give and I expect they will ease a bit over time and use.
They are very stylish, and true to size - I have bought the medium and they are not at all bulky whilst still being very warm and padded. Also I think they are extrememly good value for money.
Can't wait to get out to the Alps and try them out!
