Great gloves. Warm and snug
Great fit, warmth and features.
Theses gloves are very warm!
They are well made and warm. It is difficult to keep my fingers warm except with mitts and an inner glove. Yesterday hiked in below freezing temperatures with strong wind, part of the time exposed on a ridge top. The Gordini's did not keep my fingers really warm but did better than any of my other gloves would have and I have quite a few, some much more expensive.
One of the problems with a lot of the higher end gloves, like Black Diamonds and Mountain Hardware, is that, unlike the da -goose, they are designed for mountaineering which requires extra finger dexterity and feel for ice axes and other hardware. They therefore tend to have less insulation on the finger fronts which is great for sensitivity but not for warmth.
Also, I have found that down gloves tend to be designed more for maintaining the loft of the down whereas the ones with synthetics generally aren't as concerned with loft which diminishes maintaining warmth.
Have hiked with them several times so far but not in rain or snow yet so can't comment on that.
