A glove with a lot of dexterity and considerable warmth sans the extra bulk of true cold-weather mitts. An extended cuff keeps these tucked nicely up your wrists so you are eliminating the chance of errant wind seeping in. These gloves are warm! And therefore your hands will sweat. Make sure they are given the chance to thoroughly dry out between uses. And as someone else said, I nice swatch of soft terry cloth would be nice along the thumb line to deal with wintery runny noses.
