This glove is pretty warm for its weight until you start playing around in snow with it. As I built a snow cave yesterday, the gloves overtime became soaked with water from the snow and then froze. This isn't a wet snow pack this time of year either. I couldn't move my fingers at all and my hands were becoming very cold. On the ski out it became so unbearably cold that I ended up not using the gloves but just keeping my hands inside my fleece. The gloves were rock solid with ice by the end of the day. The waterproofing definitely is not enough. This glove is alright if you don't plan on touching excessive snow with your hands.
