Fleece gloves tend to sag when they get wet, Polartec Windbloc fabric is made of stiffer stuff, it feels much stiffer than a standard fleece which characterises it as windproof, but in my experience it also dries faster than a standard micro-fleece.
The leather sections of Lowe Alpine's Turbine gloves applied to the palm and fingers further stiffen the gloves and provides a superb surface for gripping your ice-axe or trekking poles. Very comfortable all round with quite good dexterity and quick drying performance.
