Pros: Cheap (compared to BD), relatively warm and very rugged, they are barely scratched despite regular jams in alpine cracks. Really good grip when climbing more technical ice/alpine terrain.
Cons: Don't breathe well (as would be expected) and take long time to dry.
I have been using the torque gloves before, which are extremely good for steep and technical ice/mix, I would say the the Kingpin is just like a slightly warmer Torque with fleece.
