Alpinestars Tech Road Gore-Tex Gloves Closeout
Great Fall / Winter Glove
I purchased these gloves on closeout, so my review will be biased toward being a better price-point than they are normally.
Overall, I am happy with the gloves. They fit similar to my Dainese summer gloves (size Small). Gloves are very comfortable, albeit quite stiff, but I assume this will change after many uses. The only issue I found is that my pinky binds on the interior of the right glove while putting them on. I hope this doesn't lead an interior rip and pre-mature failure of the interior lining.
Exterior is great with good design. A* hook+loop is excellent and the zipper performs well, although I would have preferred something a little easier to reach for an under-the-cuff application.
I have worn these gloves down to low 40s (F) with little to no issues on my 25 mile morning commute @ average of 65mph.

Good overall, but cold in single digit tepmerature
Overall good gloves, comfy and waterproof. Although, I was expecting them to be a bit warmer. Took them on the ride and the temperature dropped to 6C. Had to use the heated grips and outer part of the hands was still freezing. Otherwise nice gloves.

the inner lining comes away when you draw of the clubs
so you cannot take them off easily you must sees them off and grip the whole so the lining stays in the finger
however in a hurry you cannot always do this and then they are impossible to get back on
I would have sent them back but there was no way as I was on the road
even the x x l would not fit my hand

Great Gloves for the Price
Haven't had these gloves for long but they are working well so far. Warm, comfortable and with tons of protection. I especially enjoy the lining. Feels quite nice. A bit stiff/bulky but they are winter gloves so that's to be expected.

Great winter gloves
These gloves have a smart design and are very good quality. They work great in the rain keeping you dry, are good for lower temperatures and offer good protection. Can't find something better for winter sport riding in this price range.

Nice spring/fall gloves
These are great cool weather touring gloves. They are comfortable and warm and the build quality is very good. They do need some breaking in, particularly in the pinky area where I think the extra material makes it a bit stiffer.
I would not recommend them in temperatures above 20C. I've worn them down to 5C and they were very comfortable.

Looking forward to them...
Bought these for this winter. I'm really looking forward to riding in the rain with them. I've only tried them on and worn them around the house so far... they seem like they'll be very warm with the faux fur liner.
They're a little thicker than I was hoping, particularly in the palms and fingers. Still, I think they're a lot less bulky than cheaper gloves.
Also, the zippers on the gauntlets aren't the easiest to open when taking the gloves back off. I had to use my teeth to hold the fabric in place while I pulled the zipper with my free hand. Hopefully the zippers will break in.

great price for that set of features
with current discount you can't get a better winter gloves. very warm, haven't tested in heavy rain yet, so not quite sure how they will withstand it.
