Very Nice Functional Light GlovesI rate these gloves as "Runs A Little Small" only because the wrist area is a little snug when getting them on. I have large hands - that said once the gloves are on they a nice, comfortable and snug fit which contribute to dexterity. These gloves are not for winter sports, snow or cold weather - they are great for temps 35 deg F >, windy conditions and rain like what you get in the Pacific NW through much of the winter.

Great style, good quality, but odd proportionsI love Columbia's softshell line of products, and have been enjoying my Ascender II jacket for a few years now. These gloves sport the same great style, and are comfortable to wear . . . but as other reviews have noted (here and on Amazon) the opening for the hand is more restrictive than it should be for each size. I purchased size large specifically for this reason, and the gloves go on/off comfortably for me . . . but I would have normally purchased a size medium, and I imagine someone with typically "large" size hands having difficulty with these. In addition, the material in the palm of the hand seems to bunch easily, and the fingers don't seem to be consistent (some are just the right size, others too long). I do really like the gloves, and my overall feeling about them is still positive . . . but with a bit of tweaking on the proportions, these could really be a 5-star ultimate glove!

Unfortunately can not recommendI own many Columbia product and I love most of them. Unfortunately, this NOT one of those products.
- Fairly true to size. The elastic around the cuff is a little smaller but not drastically small.
- Not warm at all. Hands were cold almost immediately while walking dog in 28 degree weather. Doesn't seem to keep wind out
- Palm material is not grippy at all. It actually seems to be slippery. I dropped my phone a few times, and slips on steering wheel way too easily.
- Inside of glove is rough. Can feel the seems easily. Seems like this is more of a shell for an actually soft pair of gloves.
- I can't seem to get the touchscreen fingertips to work. Can't slid phone open.
- Material is same, very good Columbia standards, and stitching is tight so seems to protect against wet weather.
Price is decent on these but would recommend buying another style. These just don't cut it in my opinion.

I ordered all three sizes and none of them fit right!I am mind boggled by the sizing of Columbia products. Some things fit perfect, some you have to get a size smaller, some a size bigger. I ordered all three sizes of this and other gloves to match my Men’s Ascender™ Hooded Softshell Jacket and my MEN’S WHIRLIBIRD™ INTERCHANGE JACKET. Well none of them fit good. All the gloves are being returned except for the running gloves.
Here is the problem with the sizing of Columbia gloves. The ONLY difference in the sizing is how wide the glove is at the wrist. The length of the fingers are ALL the SAME = WAY TOO SHORT! I can't bend my fingers properly in ANY of them! If I can't grab something or close my hand in a glove I might as well put a cast on my hand. I want to be warm BUT I want to be able to FUNCTION. So please redesign your gloves so that the length of the fingers changes with the glove size.
