I used a pair of these last year, and in one sense, I loved them: they breathe well and as such kept my hands much warmer than expected despite their light weight. Unfortunately, the overmitt sticking came undone after 2 days (Dynafit replaced without question, which is cool) but as the season went on the overmitt tore a number of places very easily. By the end of the season, the insulation seems mostly worn out and the gloves suck up water like a sponge. In hindsight, I'd probably go with the race glove ...
Thanks Teddy, I'll look for something more substantial :)

Skied these about 50 days in the 2018-2019 season, mounted with Dynafit Ultralights and using a TLT6p boot. I've loved them -- I came from a Voile Vector, which is similar in specs (although the Hannibal is substantially lighter), and didn't realize how much different a ski with the same shape could ski. The Hannibal out-skis the Vector hands-down, and feels a lot nicer on the uphill. Absolutely love these things.
Used these for the 3rd time out on my Magicos today, up until now they've worked great, even when doing 6 short laps and taking them on and off a lot. Today I had some pretty bad glue failures on both skins, all on the first lap. Temperatures were near 0F, and I'm wondering if that might have been part of it. Do you guys have any thoughts on how well the glue holds in cold temperatures on these skins? Is this likely user error, or should I just get some gold label?
