Good gloves but poor stitching

Wore these for six consecutive days in the mountains on glaciers and mixed climbing. Three finger tips on one glove came unstitched on the fourth day. Overall great gloves for alpine mixed climbing, but quality of construction needs attention. Returning for replacement.

Advantages
Lightweight
Excellent handling
Disadvantages
Poor finger stitching

Size fit is much smaller than the sizing chart

The sizing chart had me at the top end of an extra small but I purchased a small just incase. Even a size up they do not fit. I wore them for days on end to stretch them out, even used a hair dryer to loosen the leather and no good. I can't even grip a rope in the palm of my hand due to the tightness of the glove restricting the closure of my fist.
