In reply to Jerry67: Sorry Jerry I've only just seen the thread. I think these are a truly underrated glove and would be great for summer alpine use. I bought them as a spare inner (which was cheaper and warmer) for my Hestra Falt (Guide) Gloves which I use for most winter climbing. I've since worn them for loads of activities and find them warm (but not windproof). For the price they're great - like a Dachstien but with fingers.
