Decent Gloves at this Price
For the money these gloves are just as good as any other. The best part about this glove is the thumb squeegee, that's what kind of set it apart for me. But your hands are going to get numb in sub 35 degree Fahrenheit weather on a prolonged ride. I wore a generic pair of Wilsons Leather... leather gloves under these and although a drop in dexterity, I was able to ride 45 minutes in sub 30 degree with out feeling tingle. But if your gonna ride in bone cold weather like that, spend money on some gloves with warmers.. or buy extra warmers or what not. With out warmers any glove especially at this price point wont cut it.

V good glove for the price
Very comfy glove as long as the liner doesn't pull out bc sometimes u can't get a finger or 2 back in w out a lot of fidgeting around. I have several pairs of riding gloves and these in my opinion not far off of some gloves twice their price. They r very comfy , look good and r good to temps as low as 40 degrees but under that my fingers get cold but what can u expect when u ride a st bike in 30 degree weather. A good all around glove and not to bulky so u can feel the hand controls and grips comfortably. I wear an xL in most gloves but I wear a 2xl in alpine stars if that helps anybody. They fit great w nothing poking my hand and I am very picky about that and is why I have so many riding gloves that I don't wear. The only issue I have w them is that the liner can test ur patience sometimes but not always. I would def still by them.

Does the job
Got this to replace some older Firstgear gloves. I primarily used them in temps from 15-30 degrees and they were fine. The visor squeegee on the left thumb is a nice touch, and feel for the controls is good for a winter glove. Overall, I'm happy with these and they do exactly what I wanted.

So Comfy and Warm
Great gloves for the SF Bay Area where it gets cool but usually not cold. 30 degrees is like a Polar Vortex for us. Easy to put on, reasonably good control feel. I would not use them for spirited riding (too loose). They make it a joy to ride around in our crisp cool winters and are also 100% waterproof. Love the brand, been wearing it for 25 years, love this particular product. Five Stars.

Brian D:I've worn these in cold and rain. They protect well in the rain, but you need to make sure you secure your jacket over top of them. If not, the rain flows off your jacket into the cuff.Oct 1, 2014
