Firstgear Kilimanjaro Gloves
I was looking for an inexpensive glove, so my ratings are about where I expected. Not a bad glove by any means, but the protection on the knuckles is off a bit. But my biggest gripe is that there is a split in the underside of the gauntlets, so there is a gap when used over the jacket sleeve where water could get in. Its a waterproof glove....... Haven't used them in the rain yet, so i could be wrong. For the money though so far they work.

Warm, comfy, sharp!
I have only worn these a couple of times and switching from all leather gloves to these was a bit of a gamble but boy am I glad I did. I haven't felt the 34 degree mornings on my fingers at all. They do seem to fit a bit snug and I am hoping they get broken in after a summer of riding but right now they are tight. The knuckle guards seem to ride not quite on the knuckles and that can be a bit irritating for now but we shall see how they work out at the end of a season. All in all.... as far as weather protection... I give it 5 stars for sure!

Fantastic glove at a great price
Have had these for a short time now and have been on a couple of 2-3 hour rides so far.
Hands are snug but comfortable and fit well over the cuffs of the Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket. Hands and wrists feel great in 40°F weather, not too warm yet not cold even after a couple hours on back country roads. Gloves feel durable yet lightweight with no problem gripping the throttle.
Looking forward to my ride to Denver with these in a couple of months.

Great All Season Gloves
They are big!!!! I normally wear a XL, but had to return them to get one size down. Very comfortable and warm!!!

Good for medium weather
Bought a pair of these for my wife and myself. We were out recently in about 45-50 degrees and rain. I was warm and dry. My wife didn't fair so well but she gets cold anyway and we might need to get electric for her. Long and short of it is they seem to be decent for the money and they did keep my hands dry in the rain. As I ride into the winter I might invest in some that are a little heavier.

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.
