Joe Rocket Windchill Gloves
Good budget-minded winter gloves
These are good gloves for cold weather. Compared to standard winter gloves they are a little pricey, but compared to other moto gloves, they are economical. They offer a fair amount of protection, certainly not as much as the summer racing gloves I use when it's warm. Being a winter glove, they are thicker, and it takes more effort to be precise with clutch and throttle, but that's just something I have to practice. I wore them on a 50 mile / 1hr 15min trip yesterday in 40 (F) degree weather. My fingers were cold at the end of the ride, but that's typical for me anytime I'm out in the cold, even if I'm just walking. These gloves are definitely warmer than my summer racing gloves, and that's what I needed.
The are soft, made of good quality leather, good workmanship & style. I'm satisfied, and I would recommend them. I consider my hand size an L, but I these gloves are XL and they fit correctly.

Good cool weather leather gloves
The fit is exactly what is stated in the video review. They fit tighter, more Euro. Use this not the Joe Rocket size guide. Quality appears excellent. The fit is a bit tight, even with doing a +1 size. My only gripe is that they are difficult to "open up" to easily reach the levers until they are broken in. Caused my hands to cramp a bit on the first few weeks. Otherwise the pre-curve is very nice for the grip position and doesn't bunch up.

These gloves run small. I knew they ran small from other comments so I got extra large. Had to send them back to get 2X. Other than the strange sizing they are very nice. Plenty of soft insulated lining inside with a very nice leather or leather like outer material. Wind will not get through. Great fit and style.

Has all the features
Good looking glove with everything I needed for cool or wet riding. I haven't had the chance to ride in either condition yet so I can't comment on performance. That said, the look and comfort are outstanding, but they do run small. I'm a L and went with XL... fit was perfect for me.

They do the job.
I was looking for a pair of gloves to get me through the winter. These Joe Rockets should do that. The reviews warned be to size up and I did. I'm normally a L but bought these in XXL. They fit very well and seem well made and highly protective. I've tested them already in cold rain. I was not disappointed. I would like the gauntlet to be a little longer and a little more curvature in the fingers. I'm afraid they will be tiresome on a long ride trying to maintain control of the throttle. But let me say that for the price I got what I expected.

The name fits the product.
I ride my bike till the ice and snow hit the ground. I have worn these gloves in temps under 30s. For almost and hour without heated grips. My hands were cold but not unbearable. Passing my test. I like the Velcro wrist closing, and wiper blade.

Very warm, but only if you have the right size.
These gloves are definitely warm, and the definitely run small. I wear a 2XL in Roland Sands gloves and mistakenly tried out the 2XL in these. While they seemed to fit upon first try, I found that when I was out riding in 30 degree weather, my fingertips were freezing because there simply wasn't enough air left to insulate in the tips of the gloves.
After upgrading to the 3XL, I rode out again, this time in 20 degree weather, and found that my hands were perfectly comfortable through and through.
I cannot recommend these enough, but be sure you get a size larger than you think you need.
