I purchased this glove becuase I dont likr wearing bulky gloves when I'm on the mounitain and this delivered what I was looking for. These gloves are light, obviously! They have no insulation on them however still kept my hands relatively warm. I wore then during peak and spring season here in AUS and my hands only got cold when they became wet and the wind blew across them. other than that they were warm! There are made out of a neoprene material which helps repel water (think a wetsuit) but between the fingers is a selt like material which laps up water! This was the only thing letting water in but not such a big deal. The palms are rediculously grippy but I found the dots on started to come off after 2 days but the gip was still as good as it was! I found the Thumb was rediculously long as well but not a big deal, I'll have to size down next time. All in al it's a great, cheap glove that handles in most conditions. If you dont liek wearing bulk gloves, like me, I would recommend this product!
