Firstgear Kilimanjaro Gloves
Good cold weather glove
These gloves are warm and dry. I've used them down to 35 degrees and my hands were warm, though I do have hand guards and grip heaters. They are comfortable and don't interfere with the controls.

Works for me
Been riding in 38 - 50 deg (F) weather with these, but no rain yet. Measure chart showed my hand as large. i bought X-large and they fit just right. My motorcycle has heated grips and [smallish] grip farings so while these are comfortable and warm for me @ 38 deg at highway speeds 'mileage may vary' when used on a motorcycle with standard grips w/ no grip farings. I like 'em. They seem to be very well made.

Good, three season glove.
I'll be the first to admit that I was hoping I could get four-seasons out of this glove. I know that's not really what it was designed for, but with winters getting milder - a guy can dream.
At any rate, decent glove, fits seems true and the quality of finish is great. I'd stay they're a good glove down to about 40 for longer rides, maybe 30 for a few miles around town. Anything lower than that - you'll want more wind protection and heated grips.
Still - I recommend them as they're a good middle level glove at a reasonable price.

Good winter glove
Bought these for year round commuting in Ohio. With heated grips they work really nice due to a thinner palm. Nice velcro wrist closure and pull string. Used them in the mid 20's for 25 minutes and hands were only slightly chilly. Waterproof feature held up well for about 20 minutes of rain on the interstate.

Warm comfortable gloves
These gloves are great. They are not too bulky and perform well in cold weather riding. I've only been in light rain with them so far, so I haven't put them to the test. I could see water beading up on them so I'm sure they would pass. Gauntlet style is a must in rain, the pull string with a storm flap does the trick to keep cold rain/wind out. I'm really considering buying another pair because I like them so much.

Stylish and Comfortable
Got these gloves to use year-round. For the winter, I am combining them with heated grips and hippo hands for warmth. By themselves, they aren't the most practical winter gloves, but work well in temperatures over 45 IMO. Still, I'd rather use them in combination with the hippo hands and grip heaters than buy a separate pair of winter gloves that are too bulky to maintain good control over my vehicle.
I got the mediums, and they are slightly small but fitting better as I wear them in.

I have only worn these a few times on 17 mile ride to work in the morning and so far so far they seem to be just fine. Yesterday it was 32 degrees when I left in the morning and there were no issues with warmth. They really run small. I originally purchased an xl and that was not an option so I sent them back and and got an xxl. I even wonder if I could have used a xxxl.
