Most comfortable?
Best feel for controls?
best for gauntlet in and out of jacket? (Cayenne)
best with grip warmers?
best protection?

Thanks for your input. You guys run a solid outfit
Thought I'd chime in. I tried on every winter glove in the Philly store a few months back (thanks Bobby) and bought the Alaska. I brought my heated glove liners in with me to ensure a good fit. This glove is supple and very warm - good from the mid 50s down to - well I don't know yet. With the liners in, there is no lower temp limit with the Alaska. The full gauntlet is not too bulky and cinches up enough to be worn inside the cuffs of my Defender jacket. Best gloves I have owned.
