Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
Good for the winter and rain!
As long as you are only planning on using this glove during the winter, it is perfect.
I rode all winter in temps around 35F and even after riding at 60mph on the highway, my fingers never got uncomfortably cold. They would start to ache after about 20 mins, but by no means was it unbearable. So overall, they kept really warm.
They also do well in the rain with the little wiper on the finger. My hands were perfectly dry after being down-poured on.
Protection is a little limited compared to a more expensive glove, but I have the feeling that they would do just fine in an accident.

Really Warm But Palm Side is Too Thick
Owned this pair of gloves for a few years now. They are very well built and VERY warm considering I live up here in Toronto, ON, Canada. Using them mostly in spring and fall, or while riding in rain in the summer.
What I don't like is they could keep the back side thick but make the palm side thinner. It felt like you are gripping the throttle with an extra layer of thick bath towel. Thought that it would wear down after some use but it didn't really wear down.
Also, the waterproof linear is built-in and it doesn't have additional liner that you can wash so it takes forever to dry. Since the palm side is thick, unless you are the passenger, I really don't recommend to add your own liner as it would be too thick to feel the bike controls.
I still recommend them if you have to ride in really cold times. If you have heated grip, I upgraded my bike later, I would look for thinner waterproof gloves.

Great for my morning commute in the Midwest, probably would not be my choice for long distance in cold weather but good for 20-40 minute commutes. Dexterity is decent for such big thick gloves. The visor swipe is a great feature. Styling is great and fit is right on. Good gloves for under $100

Should have listened to Anthony
Great pair of gloves. I love the reflecting cammo, the hard knuckle protection and its wrap-around cuff.
I ordered these since we don't get too much rain nor too cold back at home and I liked the price.
HOWEVER: they FIT SMALL!!! I ordered these in a LARGE, I'm size 9-9 1/2 usually. They not only fit small, BUT when using they creased and are bloody uncomfortable across the palm.

Super warm and comfortable
Have ridden with these gloves in 10° weather (before wind chill) and they managed to keep me pretty warm. The ends of the thumbs are a little bulky so it made operating my controls a little annoying at times and for extended riding, the recurve is pretty minimal so expect some wrist-fatigue. Overall not a bad glove for the price. Would definitely recommend for early spring, late fall and possibly even early winter riding.

Only for short commutes on a college budget
I ride year-round in the South. I'm a working student so these gloves were chosen because they fit into my budget.
Pros: Will keep warm over short distances. Will keep water out FOR THE MOST PART. Are affordable and I've definitely put the lens wiper to use a ton at slower speeds. Probably a good choice for someone who doesn't ride far into the fall or too early in the spring.
Cons: Temperature was regularly in the low 40s while I was commuting and even with hand guards on my bike my fingers would freeze to the point of going numb 30 min. into my hour long 70mph commute. I know now a removable liner would be invaluable because these gloves with a permanent liner take forever to dry all the way through. Not at all good at wicking moisture away from the skin. Lastly, the gloves are so thick I had to adjust how I use the thumb controls on my bike.
Final thought: I will be investing in another pair next winter, no ifs, ands, or buts about it

Good Winter Gloves
I got these for those every now and then cold mornings in Texas and they do a good job at keeping my hands warm into the lower 30's...beyond that and I'm most likely still in bed. Like most of these types of gloves, the dexterity isn't there. I'm hoping this improves with time.

not bad at all
These gloves will keep your hands warm as long as its not any lower than 50ish °F. Given wearing gloves decreases dexterity, these felt very weird. Love the cuff clip that holds the the wrist adjustment down. As mentioned, not bad product at all
