I searched all over the web for gloves I can use in outdoor photography in the winder and still have my fingers free to operate the controls of my camera. After trying several other pair of gloves that were either too clumsy, too small on my huge hands, or too flimsy to last, I bought these Glacier Glove Alaska River Series gloves while they were on sale. I have finally found gloves that will keep my hands warm enough, yet leave my fingers free and give me the dexterity I need. I also appreciate the quality of materials and construction - much better than the cheap gloves I found on a major retail website that sells a lot of gloves that don't have the quality or size choices of Glacier Glove products. The neoprene all over the palms and fingers provides excellent "grip." I am lucky I was able to buy two pairs at the sale price. In the future, I will know where to go for my outdoor photography gloves.
