Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves
Should remove "arctic" from the title
I bought these gloves for cooler mornings in Florida and was immediately disappointed on the first ride in 60 degree weather. These gloves are not designed for cooler weather, and anything below 50 degrees and you're in trouble. I think the biggest flaw in the design is the perforations, which make the gloves really breathable. If you're looking for a cold weather glove look elsewhere, and choose a gauntlet style.
Additionally the metal plate on the back of each glove can be felt when putting the gloves on, to the point of actually scratching your hands.

Comfy and moderately warm
I wanted some gloves to wear in colder weather and these looked good. I ride pretty much everywhere and commute every day. These gloves are keeping me warm to a point. When the Temps get down into the low 40's and below, my fingers start getting cold at the end of my commute. My commute is about 45 minutes of 75+ mph on the highway. About when I turn off the high wat is when I start to notice my fingers getting cold. So I wish they were a bit warmer in that regard but they are a 3 season glove so I can't complain too much.
My other issue is that mine are really small. My hands were barely a medium, edging on small according to the sizing guide. But I really should have gotten a large. I was hoping they would break in a little bit more, but no such luck.my fingers solidly hit the end of the gloves and the wrist of the glove protrudes a little onto the back of my hand.
Other than these slight issues, the gloves are stylish and comfortable and I don't regret getting them. I would just buy a size bugger next time.

Great for cool weather.
Best gloves so far for the cool, damp mornings (around 50 degrees Fahrenheit). Good value for the price.

I bought these gloves, and the left glove fit fine. I had no problem putting it on, and it fit nice. I went to put on the right glove, and it seemed like a size too small. I could barely get my hand into it, and it reduced my dexterity. I looked to see if it was labeled improperly, but it was a large. At a quick glance they looked the same, but after closer inspection they were made just a little differently. Possibly poor quality control from the factory. I'm planning on buying another pair just to see if I can get the right fit.

Don't Buy em!
They are Impossible to get on your hand, they are too tight around the Cuff. Also, when you take the glove off, the entire lining wants to come out with your hand! I recommend the Klim glove for a little more money.

Great glove that's a little tough to put on.
I always wear Alpinestars Large gloves, they're always snug but comfortable. These gloves are no exception.The usual extraordinary Alpinestars quality. My only gripe is getting the cuff over my hand when putting it on is pretty challenging but once I get it on I can feel the controls and my hands stay warm and dry. I have worn these in rain before and as long as you keep the knitted cuff dry the glove stays dry. Once you get that knitted cuff wet, the water migrates to the rest of the inside of the glove. I find it hard to fault it for that though since it's really not a wet weather glove. If you are looking for something for wet weather, this is not your glove. Go with something that has a gauntlet style cuff.

PROS: short cuff nice because when temp gets warmer i could open zipper on sleeve to cool down not the same with gauntlet winter glove ive had before. covers sleeve zipper. .
CONS: dont like the strap across wrist on gloves. no need for them. slip on and go. when not strapped, strap flap around if not secured.guess in accident situation helpful to keep gloves from slipping off
OVERALL: no big issues. sportbike rider. good fall/winter glove. mid 30s to low 50s. anyhting higher in temp glove to warm. not bulky, feels like a summer glove..
