Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.
Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.
Waist: Measure the natural waistline.
Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.
Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. Then length measurement will vary depending on the style.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
Didn't stop the cold/wind from turning my fingers white...
I suffer from cold/white fingers in the winter and I wanted a good quality pair of gloves.
However I wore them for the 1st time last week in the subzero temperatures and my fingers were numb in 10min.

Tried on all the gloves in the store, some cheaper and some more expensive. These were the only pair that were thick and warm but fitted and still allowed flexibility in the fingers to grasp things and didnt have bit clunky unused finger tips. Used these to go skiing and they were brilliant.

I used these gloves on Mt Kenya at -15C. My hands were extremely toasty and I have also used them in extremely wet conditions where you would not expect most waterproofing less than 5000mm to withstand it. These were beyond my expectation and I would certainly buy again.

Nice gloves but REALLY small
I bought the extra-large size of these gloves and while I don't have massively big hands, they are a really tight fit. I could easily put them on while in the shop but out on the moors and with my hands a tad damp then it is very difficult to put them on.
If it's raining and my hands are very wet then I can't put them on at all.
But when I can wear them, they are very warm and very comfortable.

Looks good but was quite stiff. Air proof indeed but worst when it comes to keeping out the cold. I bought it especially for the windy cold days when my knits didn't do much good. Turned out my knits kept my hands warmer than these gloves did. I don't recommend it.

I have tried many different brands of gloves previous for hillwalking and have always ended up with cold wet hands. These gloves however have broken the trend. Excellent value for money, toasty and warm (tested at a minus 10 windchill for a week) and reliably dry. Can't fault them at all.

Highly recommended +++++
I tried tons of top brand/ expensive gloves and found the OEX to be the best fit and most comfortable. They are warm and keep your hands dry even in the heaviest downpour. A real bargain at the price.

Good value gloves bought for a ski trip. Warm and cosy and well made; feel like a more expensive brand - very pleased.

Perfect for skiing and walking
I chose these gloves for a recent skiing holiday and originally bought them as a back up to my goretex pair. I was very surprised to find that these gloves worked just as well as my much more expensive pair. Warm, waterproof and didn't get overly sweaty which happens when skiing. Great gloves.

Good quality but...
Really good quality materials and build but very difficult to put on when your hands are cold and wet. Way to many straps. Take ages to dry if the get wet on the inside but are very warm and comfy once you got them on.
