Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
I have this for a couple weeks and everything is OK for now. It's warm and comfortable.

Not bad for the price
These are my first pair of motorcycle specific gloves. I was on a budget when buying them, and I really wanted a gauntlet style of glove that was waterproof and had a decent amount of protection. I've used these both on my F650GS in 28ºF weather, and on a borrowed 250 Ninja in 60º weather. I have wind deflectors and heated grips on my GS, so in the 28º weather I was doing just fine for less than an hour rides. Just my fingertips were cold. They are more on the heavy side for insulation, but in the New England area I would use these for probably every season except summer. They provide enough warmth but still allow you to feel the controls well enough. After trying on and looking at First Gear, Joe Rocket, Alpinestar, Cortech, BILT, and Dianese gloves, I chose these for the protection, price, and full gauntlet, and I'm happy I did.

Great gloves for the money
I love these gloves. They are a lot better than riding in super bulky ski gloves.

These gloves were good for the short time that I have them. I was only able to wear them three times before they were stolen off my bike with my helmet. They are a little bulky but the fit was good and seemed to keep the cold winds and rain out. I believe they will work great as fall riding, but when you start getting to the colder temperatures you might need more protection.

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.
