Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves
Good gloves for the price
The gloves are great for winter period, they keep warm and protect pretty good from rain (Not perfect but OK).
The main down side is that it's a bit hard to do common tasks such as release brake locks, enter key to motorcycle, etc with the gloves on.

As a serious Southern Cali commuter, these gloves are a must have. These gloves offer the most warmth and comfort of any other glove in it's class while maintaining the highest of quality. They are perfect for temps 35-75 degrees F. (I'm sure they could be useful at colder temps if you have hand guards and/or the gauntlet version) They are nice and warm while maintaining a sleek fit, which is helpful when your trying to control your bike in the cold.
By the way, the sizing chart was right on the money.

Really solid feeling waterproof gloves - tricky sizing!
Despite following the sizing guide exactly it took two tries to get the right size. According to the size chart I'm a M but they were wayyy too small. Exchanged them for a L and although they fit it was a little touch and go that they were too small again. But they started to stretch now and I think the L will work out.
Otherwise they are comfortable and seem to be good quality. I like the soft but snug fit of the cuffs and the velcro straps keep the gloves secured.
I've work them in some pretty heavy rain and they seem to be completely waterproof which was why I bought them. All in all they do what I need them to do and I think they look pretty cool too.

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.
