This enhances durability and comfort. It also gives the boot a new modern look.

Good protection, lightweight, not to stiff but still fit the needs.
Better water resistance than expected.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Pros: good protection, fair price, good durability, good weather resistance.
Cons, could be more adjustable on waist, it cruelly lacks air flow. Fit is more of a ski pants (but who cares...)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I measured my hands correctly but when I received the gloves, I had difficulty to put my hand in it. Furthermore, the 3 or 4 first hours, I had very bad hands fatigue.
It is now broken in, and they fit very snug, but are comfy.
One downside: for a guntlet, It should be wider, as it's too big to fit inside my jacket's arm (Firstgear Kathmandu), but it's too narrow to go over it... so it tends to bulk, thus reducing the comfort.
They really are 100% waterproof, tested under 2 hours of cold & slutchy Yukon rain.
The palm is very thin, and well vented.
Yes, I recommend this product.

There's a lot of good features on this jacket, but one major irritant that drags it down...
The cuffs velcro keeps sticking on every other velcro (pockets, beside central zipper, etc.). Since the velcro is good quality, it catches well ! It's, to me, a deal breaker. For as long as I know, it could have been easy to correct (by inverting the female/male). I cannot figure out how designers could not have seing this and not correct it...guessing that nobody would care... ?
Beside it, I only have good words for it !!
Yes, I recommend this product.
