It appears that most reviewers are male and perhaps due to larger hand sizes, that could be the cause for their glove seams being compromised.
Love mine and will buy these again. Have used this type for 16 years.
For winter cold, I use NRS Mitts.
I like them because they provide some warmth, but primarily because they provide grip (even after slathering yourself with sunscreen) and they prevent me from getting blisters while paddling my kayak. However, I find that I still need to put some athletic tape on my hands under the glove.
I'm giving it a 7 because until the seams give out, this glove is great. An obvious way that they could improve is by having more durable seams.
