I live in Ohio, and it gets pretty cold here. The wind-chill today is -20°. When it is that cold you have to wear gloves. These gloves aren't cheaply made. They keep my hands very warm. It is nice to have warm hands, but still be able to use my phone. These gloves stay in my coat pocket. Right now they are only $9.97 on Amazon!! I received this product at no cost in return for an honest review.
