Cons Poor dexterity, liner packs out a little quicker than other optionsNot very dexterous, take time to break in, if in between sizes you should consider sizing upNot super dexterous, inner glove not as durableAverage dexterity and weather resistance, below average durability particularly on the palmPoor dexterity, slightly tight fit around the knuckles
