I purchased these gloves a couple years ago at rei for $10. At that price I wasn't expecting much.
These gloves have been totally abused and are still in great condition. I have scrambled up rocks in them, grabbed onto branches, pushed through brush, hauled around logs, and even partially burned them. They are seriously tough for being wool gloves.
The fingerless design makes them very useful, especially for sleeping in because you unzip your bag easily. When it gets colder I slide some thin poly liners under them.
These gloves stay pretty warm while wet. I've worn them in the rain many times and they keep my hands from going numb.
Highly recommended! My favorite gloves ever. And they are cheap.
