Fly Racing Aurora Gloves
Great value at a price point that can't be touched.
I bought these gloves for those chilly Wisconsin mornings. I wanted affordable, stylish, comfort and waterproof. These fit the bill perfectly. They look good and feel great when riding. I have ridden in weather in the high 30s and these gloves performed adequately. I will say that for some people they might not feel the same way. Although they worked for me, I wouldn't depend on them in much lower temperatures. Even at about 40 degrees the chill began to creep in. The only thing I would have liked to see out of these was a little protection. These offer very little in a "going down" situation and the pavement gets no softer as the weather gets colder.
Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase. I think Fly does a great job with their gear offering nice style at an everyman price point.

I have purchased other cold weather gloves from other sites, but was always disappointed.
These are the best cold weather gloves I have purchased, the fit is excellent and the double cuff keeps the air out of my jacket. They are insulated enough to keep my hands warm but do not let them sweat.

They're nice gloves for the amount of money I spent on them. They keep my hands warm in freezing temps. Fitment is great. Not much to complain about.

Exactly what was described. Good on chilly 30 degree rides around town. Still need to get electric glove liners for highway riding though.

Very good for 40-60 deg days
Rides into the 30's to low 40's at highway speeds you'll want heated gloves, as I have tried $50 to $250 non-heated glove and none have worked well at those temps. But these do a good job of keeping my hands warm for short 15-20min rides in those temperature ranges. My commute is 40 minutes at highway speed and these did fine on a 45 degree and 48 degree day but as expected not so good when it was 37.
Construction is very good and fit was spot on. Neoprene on wrists provide great seal and windproof gauntlets pull cord construction is heavier duty then other gloves I have owned. I really like Fly products and recommend this glove highly. If you need better cold weather protection for longer rides when the temps are 40 and below I recommend Fly Ignitor Heated Glove.

This product is to bulky
I bought these gloves base on what the reviews had to say. Bad idea, I work 30 miles from home and used the gloves one morning when the weather was 59 degrees before I got to work that morning my fingers was cold.. This may be a good glove for skiing, But it's not good for motorcycle riding the glove is to bulky.and they do not keep your hands as warm as the reviews claim.

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.
