Was just using these while clearing the snow, felt like my fingers were going to fall off after 20 mins outside.

Could not handle it, had to run in and grab the wife's cheetah print mittens lol

I went riding on these on 2° weather and weren't that bad. Hands weren't toasty warm but sufficient. Without leather, I do not expect protection from windchill. But I'm realistic since I will not get goretex, pertex, or primaloft performance on a $15-20 pair.

The same happened to me on Saturday. I had to run in to warm up my hands and then resume shoveling.

Maybe I am very hot blooded but I bought a pair of these and use them weekly when I go to Blue snowboarding for 4-5 hours straight and hands are not cold at all. I even used these on a Tremblant trip at -45 and no issues. I might pick up another pair if my local costco is clearing them out.

Just purchased these today (didn't even see this thread until now). Nice fit and comfortable. Was out shovelling for half an hour and hands were fine (-15°?). Just a thought... perhaps the degree (pun intended Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Winking Eye) of comfort varies with the proper fit of the gloves? I had to drop down a size from my usual as it felt a bit loose.
I can't afford to save that much!

Have owned for years.Do not recommend for extreme cold.
After 20 min clearing driveway fingertips start freezing.
Look good though.
Maybe you have an old/different model? Misleading...

Have their products changed radically in the past few years? I have a pair of their gloves from a few years ago, and I just spent about 20 minutes outside shovelling snow. The temperature was -11 C, and my hands weren't cold at all.
according to all the different report in this thread, i believe it depend on the person. me, my feets and fingers gets cold very very fast. so, i need extreme cold weather boots and gloves.

I have a pair of these but have not had the chance to try them out this winter yet... I can however vouch for the awesomeness of the roots mitts that are sold at Costco! Never had cold hands in those babies! I am one for having very cold hands and feet in the winter as well!

What is the time limit or policy on price adjustments?
Not sure what it is. I asked before and was told two weeks. Looks like it may be store to store or YMMV. Maybe OP or another member might have more info too.

IMO. These are fine as long as you are doing some light activity in coldish but not VERY cold weather.

If you are shovelling snow or snowboarding and you arent working up too much of a sweat you are OK.

Once they get wet they dont have a ton of insulating warmth an you are gonna get cold.

If you are prone to cold extremities, you are going to want something better.

for $15 great to have in the trunk or just kicking around as a spare

Wore these today -17°C feels like -28°C and they kept my hands warm for about 30 min before I started to feel my hands begin getting cold. I think they’re pretty warm gloves. I kept the gloves on while riding the TTC and my hands actually started to sweat so had to take them off.

Hehe. Good one. :-). But the point is that even if it can’t hold the warmth in and enclosed environment then it’s not the right thing for me. Sometimes I feel like getting a pair of thin and thick gloves from dollarama and wear them together. I think they might actually give me the same feel as this one from costco. They cost about 8 bucks I think they are worth it for something that works for 0 to -10 C.
