- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
First off, I love these gloves! I have had the original Spark gloves for 3 seasons now, they have been awesome. Not the warmest gloves on the market, but for the price in this category, these gloves are awesome! I wanted them a little tighter fit so I went with a Medium, but a Large would have worked too. I usually wear a size 9 in other gloves.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I ordered these per the recommendation of my gearhead and WOW am I impressed. They fit great, are warm enough to be outside for hours at 0 degrees F and not so hot that you are hustling to get them off when you get inside. They have great articulation in the fingers when wearing them and have never felt like they hindered zipping up jackets or buckling helmets. They also seem to be very waterproof however I have not been outside when its been freezing rain or sleeting so I can only talk about how they work in the snow and they work great for that. I have scraped the gloves on rocks, hit many ski gates with them and also used them as knee pads on the slopes a few times and they still look brand new. The dark curry color is awesome and the cuff works great to keep snow and ice out of the gloves.
