they look and feel really good, but like you and others have suggested they do run a bit small.
when I measured my hands I was 21.5cm right between Medium and Large according to the POW sizing guide. I ordered Large... I'm glad I did, because they fit perfectly... Medium would definitely have been too small for me.
i haven't tried them on with liners yet... hopefully they still fit alright

|Triple8Sol||Have you tried on POW gloves before? I've noticed they seem to run a little small so I've had to bump up a size on my POW gloves/mittens over what I'd usually get with a Dakine/Burton/Drop glove.|

Decided to go with the POW Tanto Trigger mitts from here
Partly because the Snipers are very hard to find in Large, and partly because the Tantos have Primaloft insulation, which is apparently better than the Thinsulate in the Snipers

Two new questions:
Anyone know where online I can find POW Sniper Trigger GTX mitts in Black and Large?
I've Googled and Binged with no success.
Between the Snipers and the Tantos, which is the warmer/better glove?
Sniper vs Tanto
Gore-Tex vs Hipora = Sniper wins
Thinsulate vs Primaloft = Tanto wins
PU vs Leather = Tanto wins
$75 vs $70 = Sniper wins (more expensive = better)
Basically, how do these compare?!

I've owned Heli Hestras. Although I'm not a big fan of gauntlets, I really loved those. I actually lost them and of course no one took them to the lost and found as they were really nice gloves. It was a sad, sad day for me.
Anyway, I found they fit under most of my jackets anyway. The had a problem fitting under my Oakley jacket with elastic cuffs.
The Hestras were durable and warm enough. On colder days, I wore an additional liner under them. The thing is though, you have to take care of them because they are leather. It comes with enough leather treatment to last you a couple seasons.
I can't stress enough how much I loved these gloves.
To the person above asking for the purpose of a trigger mitt...
It gives you the warmth of a mitt with the dexterity of a glove. The free index finger is helpful. I would buy another Hestra in a heartbeat if it weren't so expensive lol.
