Got these for christmas, had been asked by the in-laws what I would want.
A pair of waterproof gloves for hillwalking and climbing that would be warm in the winter, wind resistant and I wouldnt have to take them off to put on my crampons, take pictures with a small compact camera.
Result, they done all the research and got me these. They are 100% waterproof, warm upto minus 10 with a further windchill factor of -10, and I dont have to take them off to iperate the small buttons on my camera, just a bit of practice.
The grip is great, can do my zips and straps even when they are covered in snow and ice.
Only downside is that when you stop moving the slight moisture build up at such low temp and high altitude does sap the heat. When you start moving again hands heat up in minutes, but if you were maybe climbing these wouldnt be the best.
Think they are so good Im getting a second pair to swap with when I stop at the top of a Munro.

Clearly there is a difference of opinion on the efficacy of these gloves as people review them both ways. I'm certainly in the dry but cold camp as I don't find them either comfortable or warm to wear and have gone back to ordinary fleecy gloves unless I really need the waterproof element.

I'd also say that for me the fit isn't great. I bought a large as suggested by their size guide and the fingers are a little tight but I've rather too much room on the palm of the hand. This causes the material on the palm to ruck up when the hand is closed. I could go for an XL size to help the fingers but then I'd have even more material on the palm. So if you have, like me, large hands but with short stubby fingers then check the size - you may not be able to get a comfortable fit as the material isn't very accommodating.

Brilliant for cold weather cycling. They are comfortable and seem pretty weatherproof. You probably wouldn't want to wear them on days which are anything other than downright cold, though. Good for winter, then.

I purchased these as cycling gloves for my daily commute. The good news is that they have a very good, close fit and good grip whilst still offering good tactility; excellent for fishing keys out of a bag without fumbling for instance. They're also totally windproof, which was my main reason for purchasing them; thermal insulation is rather modest to put things mildly but then again, they're not marketed as thermal gloves so no gripes there. Unfortunately, they utterly fail as far as being waterproof is concerned. Anything more than drizzle will soak through in a matter of 10 minutes max and leave your hands cold and clammy. Worse, it takes a very long time for them to dry out again. Very strange given that their waterproof membrane technology is their main selling point. Conclusion: good though expensive for general use but if you intend to wear them in wet weather, don't hit that purchase button but look elsewhere.

Due to the winter conditions suddenly hit my local area, I thought I should really invest in a decent pair of gloves. I was introduced to SealSkinz from one of my friends so decided to have a look on Amazon and came across these. I read the reviews and was really positive these were the gloves I need. Now that I have purchased it, I've been thinking to myself I could of used that money and bought about 10 pairs of cheaper gloves that will keep my hands warmer. I am very disappointed in these, as my hands are freezing with them on (not much of a difference using them or not!). I haven't tried whether they are waterproof yet, but if they don't do what gloves are suppose to do, I guess waterproof or not, doesn't matter.

If your in the military and plan on using these gloves don't buy into the 'squady rumours' that these gloves are the best thing since sliced bread. They are not particularly warm, at least not any warmer than other thin gloves. Despite what I have been told they are not 'warmer when wet'. They are, in fairness, better than most gloves are wet, but a dry glove is always preferable to a wet one, no matter what the brand.

I think the comments about using these in the workplace in another review would be spot on - they might be difficult to use for some tasks. However, for commuting on a bike in low temperatures these are wonderful: warm and dry, indeed I'd avoid using them in anything but the coldest weather as they are so toasty that your hands might sweat. They are very expensive, but a good purchase if you're a regular foul weather cyclist (they are available in fluorescent yellow).

We use these in winter for looking after our horses. After trying many gloves we find these the best. They keep your hands warm and dry, but can breath when you are working hard so your hands don't start smelling sweaty. Also have a good grip and feel. My wife wears them as a riding glove.

They are exposed to constant wet mud, tying nylon ropes from haynets, pulling ice from water troughs and generally have a very hard life.

The fingers do tend to wear through and I now need my second pair to get me through the winter.

So if you want to keep your hands dry, and still have some feel they are great. However, as mentioned in a couple of other reviews, if your are going to use them for abrasive work, expect them to wear through.

Bought a pair of these a few months ago from an outdoors shop. Have used them regularly in Snowdonia as my standard glove but I always take a pair of tuff bags to pull over them if it rains. These gloves are not "100% waterproof" as claimed they are water RESISTANT. If they get to the point at which they 'wet out' and start to soak up water they become worse than useless and very cold.

These gloves aren't great for lower temperatures, especially if there is significant wind chill. However, for more normal use such as walking the dog etc. when you are not going to be going too far or too high they should be great.

I measured up for these and got a size small. The fingers are too short, and what is worse is they are so so tight! I though maybe I got the wrong size but I went and tried some other sizes on in a local bike shop and even size XL were really tight around the fingers. I can imagine the tightness would not do well to keep hands warm. Also very uncomfortable and restrictive. But... I've only tried them on. Other people have given great reviews so I just say make sure you try them on before you buy to see if its comfortable. I'll just be using a pair of plastic gloves over my regular gloves when it rains!
