I like these gloves, and use them around home for taking the dog out, shoveling snow, etc. That said, the "gauntlet" aspect on them is pretty terrible. Trying to tuck in a winter jacket sleeve into them can be done, but isn't easy/quick like it is with my winter mitts. Because of the bad gauntlet design, I limit their use to cool weather where I might not mind my wrist being exposed to outside air. I would not bring them winter camping unless it was above 20F when I was using them. Knowing what I know now, I probably wouldn't have spent $50 on them, but maybe they'll prove more useful in the Pacific Northwest versus Minnesota.
