        Overall

        I rated the gloves a 9, but they are one of the best gloves I've ever owned. I would suggest them to almost anyone, especially if they needed a glove that keeps them warm and can hold up to years of abuse.

        Performance

        They perform VERY well, except for when they get wet. I never put the given pouch of leather balm on them, so I'm not sure how good it is but probably better than nothing. Next time I will try it out for sure.

        Design

        The gloves are really nice, they are all leather (two different types) on the outside with a removeable wool liner on the inside.

        Value

        They retail amazingly high,(like $130 high) but if you can catch them on sale they are well worth it.

        Fit

        I personally really like the way that these gloves fit. I got them in a 9. If you are between sizes I would suggest going to the lower one, because they do pack-out after some use. The gloves also have formed to the curve of my fingers, which is nice when holding poles.

        Durability

        These gloves held up way better then I expected. After a full seasons use, they are still in amazing shape. Since they are white, they do stain fairly easily, mostly just a color change from dirt.
