AGV Sport Voyager Gloves
great gloves, especially for the price
really surprised just how warm they are considering how light they are. they don't look or feel like winter gloves - i have about the same dexterity that I do with my summer gloves! they probably won't be enough if you're riding in freezing weather, but I went out for about an hour ride on my Ninja (so there's nothing protecting my hands from the wind other than the gloves) at about 45-50 degrees F and they were just about perfect, maybe just a little warm if anything. I got the mediums first, but exchanged them for smalls (very easy process with revzilla!) - when i did that they were a little tight on my right hand between my thumb and pointer finger but after riding for a while they stretched out enough that i didn't notice it anymore. (i don't think it's the glove's fault, I have weird hands that are right between small and medium.)

nice gloves, cold fingers
I bought this gloves for short travels (2-3 hours riding).
The gloves are nice and feel warm, but after riding 1 hour at 5° celsius (like 45° fahrenheit) without rain, I start feel cold in my fingers until i arrived my destiny one hour later.

Nice gloves for the money
I was looking for a waterproof, winter glove, that weren't ridiculously huge or hampered my use of the controls, and that didn't break the bank. These gloves fit that bill pretty good. I have only worn them down into the 40s but they kept my hands warm. My fingers still got a little cold, but it is in the 40s, and I'm on a motorcycle riding 40 mins+ to get to work. Not everything can be rainbows and moonbeams...
The knuckle protection on the back of the hand seems solid. But I would agree that there is no real protection on the fingers at all. The palms are also padded which is nice. And they are advertised as having reflection on the back of the hand, which I haven't really seen. For instance, I can use my mirrors and see the reflective piping on my riding jacket, but I have not seen any reflection on the gloves.
Similar to the other review, my only real complaint on the gloves is the wrist strap. The length of the strap is short, and if you have it attached to the velcro it is kind of tough to get your hand in the glove. On the flip side if you don't have the strap on the velcro but it is through the buckle, when you put the glove on it pulls the strap through the buckle. If this happens when you already have the other glove on it is a PITA to try and get that strap back through the buckle and over to the velcro. I think my solution is going to be to just cut the wrist stap and buckle off and not have to deal with it anymore.

Good for the price
Decent glove for an inexpensive price. Keeps my hands warm and dry, though I've only tested it down to the mid 40's. Airflow is low, but that's the goal isn't it? I've ridden several times in the rain, and while some moisture got in, it was from water running down my arm in to the glove. The glove was not the problem. The insulation does add a bit of heft, but it is tolerable.
Protection seems more decorate than substantial. It must be better than nothing, but my expectations are not high. For example, there is foam padding bits on the fingers but it doesn't feel strong enough to help with a hard impact.
The biggest issue I'm having with them is the wrist strap. I have trouble getting my hand in the glove without the strap coming out of it's clasp. And it is fairly difficult to get back in once the glove is on. Because this is my inclement weather glove, it's not the end of the world. But if it was my every-day glove, I'd be in a hurry to fix or replace. For a secondary glove on a budget, they'll get the job done.
