Did you know it does not sell a product to call a wombat, a rodent?
It implies that you have no idea what you are talking about since a wombat is not a rodent. It implies that if you don't know about the animal you named the product for, that you don't understand your product either. And here I was thinking that to convert a glove into a mitten was a pretty neat idea. EJLMotiveForce@bikerider.com.
By the way, a wombat and many other animals from Australia is a marsupial.

... what? I think they used the wombat name because it is a marsupial and these gloves have a hidden pouch.

I've had them for about a year, and wear them often. I have BIG hands, and the XL fits well, and looks good. The hidden rubbery mittens are easy to pull out for extra warmth, and quick to stow. They also clean well. I've run them through the washer maybe a dozen times (dryer five or six), and they still look new.
It's just not 4 season, unless you live in Southern California or Florida. In the regular configuration, it's great for temps in the 45-55 F range. The rubber mitten thing gives me an extra 5-10 degrees of warmth, down to about 35, at best. Any colder? I reach for my PI Lobster Gloves.
