First Impressions - As I unpacked...
The gloves came on a "hook card" (used to place on the hangers in stores). Under general inspection, the stitching was done well. There were no loose ends or broken threads. The shell seems flawless. No noticeable tears or defects. Similarly, the palm patch is sewn down well. There were no loose edges. As I don on the gloves, everything was smooth inside. No hard/painful seams, especially at the finger tips. I did notice, however, that if I am wearing a thick watch, the cuff of the glove just barely covers my watch.
"The Coin Test" - The thing that gloves always annoyed me.
I was always annoyed when I had to take off my gloves to pick up a something small, like a coin. I donned on the gloves and tried to pick a quarter off a vinyl, tiled floor. There was a bit of struggle, but surprisingly, I was able to pick up a quarter with the Wintertrainer II gloves. No need to take off the gloves.
Other Impressions - Things to put on the backburner.
- Functionality: Casual gloves.
These gloves are great at keeping your hands warm in an urban/suburban setting (and possibly camping). With the fleece shell, these gloves are NOT water resistant or waterproof. Therefore, do not expect these gloves to keep your hands warm once it is wet. These gloves are not designed for and are not ideal for skiing, playing in the snow, or camping in snowy areas. However, these gloves are great for walking across college campuses in the winter, walking to work (or subway, train, bus station, etc.), or sitting in a football stadium in late fall. Also, it came with a small "s-biner" and loops so you can attach your gloves together for storage.
Recommendation - What I think ...
If you are looking for a casual pair of gloves that you will use while jogging or walking, then this is it. It is priced reasonably, and the quality of the gloves is above acceptable for this price range. (I bought it for $14.89.)

Best EverDec 16, 2010
I am looking to replace a pair I have been wearing for the past 8 years. These are the best gloves I have ever owned. No, you don't want them if you plan on having a snowball fight, because they will get wet quickly. I sometimes jog, shovel the drive or work in the yard, but I spend a lot of time hanging Christmas Lights in the Fall & Winter and these gloves have been fantastic. Never to hot or to cool, good grip, and you are able to actually use your hands while wearing them. Maybe they are just perfect for me or for what I do, but I LOVE these.

Phantsstic!Oct 09, 2010
I only have one word for it: PERFECT (for me)
This was exactly what I was looking for nothing to extreme but keeps my hands warm. I don't think it would ideal for someone liking in extreme cold climate but for some place like Chicago it should work well.
Superb qualityJan 03, 2013

I've been using the same pair for hunting trips above the arctic circle for 3 years now. They have been soaked in blood and mud, burned, and otherwise abused relentlessly. Yet they are still holding tough. Fantastic warm gloves that fit and don't quit.
Good for FloridaDec 13, 2012
By Raul E. Fernandez
As of the writing of this review, I've not been in snow. So for those few and far between cold days we receive in Florida (it got down to the high teens winter 2010), I've ridden my bicycle with these on and have been comfortable. They're great for humid places (Florida). I recommend them to anyone using them for this. I can't vouch for them in snow or even colder climates, but for my own uses, they have fared fine.
