I picked up a pair of these basically because they looked cool and I had some extra cash. They ended up being quite warm, as I have tested them down to -5F, and they did well.

They resist water well also. The liners were a bit cumbersome when removing the glove and it becomes turned inside out 99% of the time when you remove a glove. This causes a big problem when you take it off while climbing and have to put it back on efficiently.

I would also suggest removing the wrist lanyards from them as well. They are super long and have a tendancy to become snagged on anything they get near.

They do offer great knuckle protection and finger protection on the back of the hand due to the molded plastic protectors (they look like motorcross gloves). Leashes from ice tools lay perfectly on the wrist with no glove material becoming bunched up underneath.

The palms are goatskin, and allow for a technical feel when you are handling ice screws or other gear.

Overall, it's a pretty good glove, and they look like something out of Mad Max.
