I bought these gloves last year & have been using them on/off since the fall. I love them, so much I am now ordering a second pair & a gift for my sister as well for her march birthday. I felt to write this review in light of the negative reviews. The fit for me, a size 7 usually, worked fine in a small/medium. Yes, the glove is short, that is what is suppose to be, but more importantly they are warm! The snap on one of the gloves unsnaps when I initially put them on, but then stay put once I resnap. They wash & dry in dryer well with NO FADE, NO SHRINKAGE. Overall I am back for more & on sale!! I say don't hesitate, I am personally a picky person about clothes, etc., with that being said it's a home run!!

Perfect for my small hands!
I'm a small'er' girl (4'10") and I continuously run into the same problem with gloves: there's usually an extra inch of fabric on the end of every finger. These gloves are a perfect fit! I ordered a small/medium. I can definitely see why they wouldn't fit somebody with larger hands, though.
As for the other reviews saying that they're 'duller' in color: it's because they're not the same 'normal' quilted material. They're a waterproof plastic-y material. I ordered them in Dogwood along with the Newsgirl hat and I love them!
Overall, I recommend the small/medium gloves for people who have really small hands. Can't speak for the medium/large gloves. I'm happy with my pair. :)

Color nice, but fit is dissappointing
I received these in Dogwood. The pattern was true to color (awesome), but the fit and size of these gloves were small and the wrists barely come to the end of your hand and the fingers are short. Women need longer fingers in gloves to allow for jewelry taking up space in the material--and nails. In addition, the wrist part needs to be longer to get the gloves covering above the wrist to coat sleeve line.....I wish you didn't have to unsnap them, a pull on with a little gathering would have been better. They are stiff, but that would get better with wear, I just think the needed to be longer and not so snug. I got the med/large (largest size) and they were still small. Will miss my pattern (dogwood) and wished I could have gotten perhaps a new updated style of the gloves before the pattern was retired. :-(
