OR Omni Gloves
I recently picked up a pair of these gloves prior to a weeklong ski/snowshoe trip. I planned to use them both as a liner under warmer gloves and/or under waterproof shell mitts on cold or wet days and as a stand-alone glove on nicer days. The weather ended up not dictating a need for shells or layering, so I just used them by themselves for all of my snowshoeing and general hanging out outside. The gloves were plenty warm for me in temps ranging from the low 40s down into the low 20s (I didn't get a chance to take them lower for any extended period of time). They also turned out to be decently windproof. They don't seem to hold much moisture and they dry quickly, so that's a plus! The fit was just about perfect for me (I tend to be about a perfect medium). The gloves have a slight bit of stretch, but not much, so getting the right size is important. The glow in the dark grip treatment to the palms works... they definitely glow bright green in the dark but the grippy patterned treatment doesn't hold up real well. On multiple fingers, I find that pieces of the grippy stuff have pealed or are pealing off. I'm not sure how important the grip treatment is to me yet, so I'm going to keep using them and see what happens as (I assume) more of the grip delaminates. Overall, though, the gloves have exceeded my expectations.

Almost perfect but one major flaw
Exceptional dexterity, great materials, very wind resistant, somewhat water repellent and pretty warm. The only flaw with these gloves is the interal expossed seams in the fingers. For me, this pinches circulation and leads to cold fingers (but a warm palm). You might consider buying a larger size to compensate the finger size issue.
