I returned these gloves after using them once. They could not keep my hands warm; they were also quite bad in terms of dexterity; and the fingers of the liners tended to bunch up.

These gloves are horrible. I took them on a six day snow camping trip. The shells lost their waterproofing after the second day. Also, the finger pads on the liner gloves absorb water like a sponge. I resorted to sucking water out of the pads each night with my mouth. All in all not a good glove at all.
