Fly Racing Aurora Gloves
Good but not great
I bought this glove in and xl since i always find gloves run small for me. its is basically a ski glove with a couple of features that make it moto worthy. no real protection to speak of but the build quality and materials seem up to par. my favorite feature is the dual cuff desing which does a great job of sealing out all the wind. i haven't road in the rain yet but it did stay dry under the sink faucet. i've tested these gloves out 4 times now, all times it was around 32 degrees 1hr or so and about 35 miles. everytime my hands got cold after about 45 minutes. i think if the temp was around 40-50 these would be great, or if they were used with a heated grip. overall im happy with them

Overall decent glove
Here are my riding stats:
- Avg riding speed: 65-70 mph.
- Bike Type: Sportsbike
- Winter riding temp: 30 - 45 F
- Avg commute time: 30 - 40 mins.
This glove performs well in most conditions. I observed that when temperatures are over 37F it will keep my hands reasonably warm without getting clammy. For temperatures below 37 my fingertips did get pretty chilly. However it did not hinder in my ability to get to the brake or the clutch.
The gloves are a little on the bulky side so they do keep me warm for a longer period when not riding. Even though they are bulky they provide quite a good grip on the controls (or any other surface for that matter). I did find that the webbing between the index finger and the thumb on the left hand got in the way when trying to reach the lighting controls on the left side of the handlebars. I wear a medium and it fits me quite well.
In summary - I feel they met my expectations quite well in the following way:
- Good protection in case of an impact.
- Good weather protection (only for winter)
- Secure and snug fit.
- Good price point.

Absolutely no dexterity can be found in your fingers when wearing these gloves. They're simply too thick. I found it difficult to even put the other glove on while wearing the first glove.
The inside-outside seal is a nice idea in theory, but for me turned out to be a huge hassle.
Little protection for the knuckles, unfortunately, but at least they're comfortable and warm once you finally get them on.
They're definitely waterproof too, I put my hand under the sink for a while to test it.

Nice cuff design
I purchased this inexpensive winter glove over the rest because of the unique cuff. It covers the skin on the wrist regardless of what kind of sleeve my jacket has.

3 season glove
My first pair of winter gloves. the fit is good, I usuall buy large gloves & these fit as expexted. The material tends to bunch up al ittle in the palm but not too bothersome. I really like the double gauntlet with the inside cuff going under the jacket . I ride early am 35 mis. mostly highway / 45 degrees & about half way fingers start to get really cold - I going to try them with an insert. If it doesn't help I will be buying battery operated heated gloves. It was about what I expected at this price point.

Good glove for the money, keeps my hands warm in the low 40's for around 45 mins. A little bulky but thats to be expected. Im happy with my purchase

Great Heat, Fit, & Feel
Sized using their chart and they fit perfectly right out of the box. Excellent flexibility since they don't feel or look too bulky for winter m/c gloves. Kept my hands comfortable in the 40 degree range on the first 2 hour ride I took using them. I love the double cuff design and the outer-shell was big enough to fit over my coat with layers underneath the sleeves. Also digging the wiping cloth material on the left thumb, used it to get bug juice off my helmet's face shield!
