Pretty decent gloves/mittens actually. Not the longest lasting, but pretty decent quality overall. Enough insulation for the milder days and when it gets colder you can wear the liners inside them. Gauntlet is nice and long enough to keep the pow out. Good thing about GoreTex is that even if the liners (which are normally not water or wind proof) get wet, the moisture will evaporate through the breathable GoreTex layer.

From my experience the GoreTex stuff isn't very breathable, there are other materials that are just as waterproof but more breathable.
