AGV Sport Telluride Touring Gloves
Very warm & protective, but enough movement for a cyclist
I bought these gloves for my husband for his birthday... he's a cyclist rather than a biker, but I wanted something that would keep him warm, but allow for enough movement that he could safely and comfortably ride his bike to work in the winter. They also offer a lot of protection if he gets thrown off his bike (he's a bit of a kamikaze rider, and Baltimore City streets are no joke). Overall, we are very pleased with this purchase. And they look pretty bad@$$ too!

Good bang for the buck. Needs more attention to details.
Like another reviewers said, the sewing inside the gloves is a little rough. The bumpy seams will occasionally hit your finger tips and distract some people if they are OCD enough.
However, at this price, I would say the gloves fully serve their purposes, i.e. keeping me warm in the early morning and late night, while providing adequate protection.
Meanwhile, I've noticed that my hands still feels a little cold at sub 0C degree (<32F), but that is to be expected at that kind of temperature with wind chill when riding at 40+MPH. This also suggests that I can wear it through late fall and early spring, when it gets warmer.
Overall, I would say don't hesitate to get this product if you are on a budget, and just need a pair of gloves to keep you warm and provide reasonable protection.

Good winter gloves!
This glove is pretty good for winter riding with temperature below 35 degrees. If wearing this in warmer condition than that. Your hands might get sweat very easily. Another thing I don't really like about it is it is very bulky. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable to turn the signal lights. But overall. It is great for this price range.

Does the job.
Rode with these gloves yesterday. The bulk takes some getting used to, as the bike controls are a little harder to manipulate, but my hands did not get cold in the slightest. They do fit a little large for me, so be cognizant of that. Another great product from AVG Sport.

Great cold weather gloves
I bought these because it's getting cold again. When I leave in the morning it's around 35 Fahrenheit. These have kept me supremely warm and dry. These are definitely dedicated cold weather gloves. In my opinion anything above 65 degrees would be uncomfortable in these. Speaking of comfort, the interior is magnificent. The interior is so soft, and super comfortable! So the good is that they are dry, warm, and comfortable. To find some bad I really need to nitpick... Maybe it could use some higher quality hard armor, The feedback from the clutch and the brakes is also reduced greatly. But that is expected though because these are basically armored ski gloves. Overall, I give a flat A.

Great for the price!
Was looking for a cold weather glove. This one has great protection from the wind and is very warm on colder rides. I haven't used them yet on warmer days, but I would assume using them in 65F and warmer weather would be a little brutal. Have yet to test how they stand up in the rain, but I am sure they will be great.
They were quite stiff when I first used them, but they are breaking in nicely. I think a couple more long rides with them and they will be very comfortable.
Overall highly recommended for a cold weather glove. Very good glove considering the price!

Warm and Waterproof
I wear an American cut size large in gloves and these fit well. The first time I put the gloves on it took a while, I think the layers were twisted, or something. It was like putting your hand in your jeans pocket when its twisted up. Once I got my hand in they were very comfortable. The liner inside is nice and soft like a pair of winter gloves.
To try out the waterproofing I wasn't going to wait for rain. I stuck my hand in the glove under the sink and got the outside layer completely wet. The inside stayed dry. The HiPora membrane did its job. The glove is constructed with leather/textile on the outside, HiPora membrane in the middle, then a nice fluffy inside liner.
As far as finish, some of the stitching is crooked, one of the knuckle protector hard parts has a crease in it. So the finish is lacking. (See pictures)
Overall its an inexpensive waterproof pair of gloves for when it gets cold. The protection is less than my armored street summer gloves. The hard parts on the gloves aren't as thick or as hard as my street gloves.
The description says "all weather multi purpose glove" I would say its not for hot weather. I would only wear this glove above 70 degrees if it was raining and I would wear it below 60 degrees if its not raining.
