Customer Reviews

Comments: Just got these and my only regret is not buying another pair at the same time - sold out in my size now. I ran in 40 degree, very windy weather, and it felt like a late summer run. I'll be taking them to the limit by going XC skiing in them, but I have no worries at all as long as I don't fall into the snow repeatedly. Definitely worth a purchase if you live in very cold weather.
