Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
fits a little loose at thumb, but understandable.
I gave a low rating on air flow because that's exactly what they are for! Great insulation, not too bulky. Straps for fitting are great. Good cold weather/rain glove.

Maybe I was expecting too much...
First of all let me say I love my Icon Pursuit. Sized perfectly, nice airflow, great tactile feel. But I was using it in 40 degree weather with a winter liner that was stretching it out and it wasn't doing much to protect me from 35 degree windchill. My fingers were freezing after about 5 miles.
So I bought the Icon Patrol. First of all, it seems much larger fit than my pursuit of the same size. Fingers were too long. It kind of sucks on how much tactile feeling I lose wearing these gloves. Like someone else said, sort of like an oven mitt, but I won't go that far. If this is par for the course on waterproof/cold weather gloves, I would rather just not ride in the cold.
Second, it comparatively didn't protect me from the cold against to my Pursuit + glove liner. I can ride in 40 degree weather for about 15 miles before my fingers started getting cold. I guess you get what you pay for and for basically the same price I paid for my summer Icon Pursuit, I didn't get that much of an upgrade for cold weather. I can't recommend this glove to anyone, I suggest to spend more money and do it properly.

This product is excellent for the price
Got these to keep my hands warm on my nightly commute home from work. The style and fit are excellent, they are warm and have some cool features like the built in lens squeegee.
I would say if your looking for a pair of warm gloves and not a huge price go for these.
Also the measuring guide provided by icon worked perfectly, go with that and you should get some great, excellent fitting gloves.

This is a great pair of gloves.
I haven't had much time wearing them yet because I'm still recovering from a woman hitting me on my bike. I did wear them today. Temps were in the low to mid 40s (F) and I have a short ride to work. When I arrived my hands were nice and toasty to starting to get really warm, so I have no worries of these being too cold when the temps really start to drop. I cannot say if their water-proofness because this is the first day wearing them and thankfully it hasn't rained.
Size-wise: by the measurement chart it said I should be in a medium to large size, I know this to not be true because almost every other glove that I have ordered, be they tourmaster, Icon, or work gloves, I always have to order a 2XL to fit.

Still breaking in these gloves, but they seem OK, definitely waterproof
Typically wear ski gloves for winter riding, but decided to try these when my ski gloves wore out. These are not as comfortable, though they aren't bad. The "large" size seemed a bit on the small side, except for finger length. The gloves are more water proof than ski gloves, but not as comfortable and they are not as warm as ski gloves. Some of my bikes have heated grips, and they seem to work very well with those. Can't really tell about durability, but they seem to be well constructed.

Awesome Winter Glove
For $75, you cannot get a better glove for the money. As I've been commuting to and from work in this blistery east coast weather we've been having, these gloves have protected my hands from the cold really well. They are slightly large to the fit, but i have small hands and I bought a small.

Good glove for the price
For the price this is a great glove. It has extended my riding temperature down to the low 40 degrees. The thumb is really long and that does make opening the visor a bit tricky. The gauntlet is large enough to cover my jacket and keep the wind out. Overall a great glove. It is kinda bulky though.

Waterproof...for less than 1 hr!
Ease of putting on: EASY
* Little hard to tighten the wrist closure
Fit: Good. Nice curvature built in
Quality/build: Seem very sturdy. No problems yet.
NOTE: Used these gloves during a ride from Redmond, WA to Chelan, WA. First 2 hours was in steady rain. 45 minutes into this 2 hour rain, I felt rain starting to weep through the "waterproof" liner.
Just can't recommend.
