I have searched for a long time for gloves that would be somewhat waterproof, would be big enough to fit my thick felted wool mittens and most importantly to go over my Fjällräven Barents Parka. Usually I would need to buy a 2 sizes larger gloves to get cuff that is large enough. These mittens are go over my jacket very well and I can tighten the gloves around the jacket with the draw string to get snug fit. I use normally Hestra 8 or 9 size gloves and I bought these gloves in size 8. Here's my observations about the size: The gloves fit over my Hestra RSL Comp alpine racing gloves that are size 9. When used without any inner gloves, they are still useable. I would not buy size 7. They fit my thick felt wool mittens perfectly, making a good winter glove. The seams are not taped into these gloves, so even though the fabric is waterproof, the seams will eventually leak when you are handling wet snow. I will rate these gloves 4/5, 1 points off for untapped seams and I would like synthetic waterproof leather in palm size for better grip and for better durability.
