These are some top notch and very well made gloves. Materials are really good and construction is premium. Very warm and the knuckle guard is a nice touch. Have not tried them out for water resistance. The only gripe I have is that the sizing is way off. I usually wear an XL (I have long, thin hands) I got a 2XL in order to get some length and these are a bit tight in the thumb crotch. Width is really good for me, but that means its not an XL glove. If you have big man hands, there is no way you would get in these as they are very slim.
