Very disapointting durability

I used these for cross country skiing tour. After few hours the gloves "rubber-like" material on the palm side started to fall to pieces. After two days there were almost none left. The next layer did manage to keep the water out for a bit longer. The "durable PU palm" material is a joke. I definitely do not recommend these.

Great - but not very durable

These are great addition to three season kit. Take one or two pairs of light weight gloves with some insulation and a pair of these for when the rain comes on. Obviously dexterity is very limited but that's not the point. You slip these on and off when you need to do something. A more serious point is that the palms are shredded fairly quickly if you are a walking pole user. They still work, but they look a mess with lots of the outer layer hanging off the palms. A 'Trail' magazine review refers to this as well I think.
