I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Theses gloves cannot handle temperatures less than 5 degrees Celsius. On a -10 day, it feels like you are barely wearing gloves and on a -25 day, due to the leather keeping the cold, they feel colder to wear than bare hands. I purchased these to be my "Premium" and final pair of warm gloves, and after a year of owning them, I can say I am very disappointed with them. Never once while wearing them I considered that the "microfleece lining was delivering exceptional warmth."
