Best thing about it: Toasty warmth and total waterproofing without costing a fortune.
The design is simple, the gloves aren’t too bulky and they don’t compromise feel for the controls. I’ve had several pairs over the last decade.
Worst thing about it: My hands still get cold in very poor conditions, but that happens with all gloves I’ve tried.
Two finger design looks a bit odd – can cause unfortunate misunderstandings if you are waving thanks to passing motorists…
