I went snowshoeing at Snoqualmie Pass, Washington, two weeks ago and used these gloves in around 25 degree weather, without a cloud in the sky. These gloves kept my hands very warm and they NEVER got cold. Usually mittens keep your hands warmer than gloves, but these did the trick, and at one point I had to remove them, because my hands were getting a little too warm. I realized, after I got home, there was moisture in the gloves, but I never felt it when snowshoeing or standing still. That's the great job these did in keeping my hands warm. They took about a day for the inside to dry out when I get home. Buy . . . these . . . gloves!
