They're light: my size XL's weigh only 58 grams.
They're windproof, because of the Windstopper fabric on the back.
They're durable, because of the Pittards leather palm.
They're dextrous, because of the thin fabric and the way the gloves are sewn, an example are the roll-top fingers. They look clean, because of the neoprene wrist cuffs.
They're a tight, '2nd-skin-like', fit, but are true to size.

Although this is not exactly a long-term report, and as such I can't comment yet on long term durability (they probably won't last for lots of seasons, because the leather is a bit thin-ish), I'm very enthousiastic about these gloves. They'll definately be coming on my next alpine trips. They'll be used to replace liner gloves, which I don't need if I bring these, and will be used as replacement for my 'light climbing gloves' - the other pair of gloves I would wear when scrambling and crossing glaciers.
