I am a mid-twenties female and purchased these gloves for hunting. The large just about fit and are cheaper than the adult gloves. I always have extremely cold hands, and sitting in a deer stand all day in Wisconsin in November makes for some painful fingers. Hand warmers and thick wool gloves don't usually cut it for me so wanted gloves that would let me have my fingers free for shooting or whatnot. Not expecting much, I purchased these on a whim and I kid you not, they work! My hands never got cold all day below freezing. The magnetic closure was very convenient and easy. I would 100% recommend these gloves!
