Good cold weather glove
There are probably gloves out there that do better in sub freezing temps, but not for the price. I've ridden a few times now in 30-40F temps. The gloves in conjunction with grip warmers do a great job. People buying these expecting warm finger tips while ride all day in near freezing temps are delusional. Pay more and get heated gloves if that's your use case.

Great winter glove
If you are on a tight budget and need a good winter glove, this is the glove to get. Very good "bang for the buck" for as much as this glove offers. Extremely comfortable and the glove does a great job down to 40 degrees, below that I would suggest you throw some glove liners on underneath and you should be good to go. It might however get a little tight, but it should be good after they are broken in a bit. It would be pretty dope if they would come in other colors or something with a higher visibility. As far as protection goes, it will get the job done. Can't really complain for the price

Probably my favorite gloves
These are probably my favorite gloves. They fit very well after the break-in and the Revzilla fit guide was spot-on comparing the fit to Alpinestars gloves. They are extremely comfortable. There is a decent amount of insulation but not so much that you lose your feel for the controls. Honestly, they are a great compromise between cold protection and ergonomics. They feel almost as if I'm not wearing them. I feel very connected to my machine.
There isn't enough airflow to make them suitable for warmer weather, which bums me out because they're terrific gloves. In the 50s my hands sweat in these gloves after a while. But when the mercury dips below 40F I'm glad I have them. On the other hand, when the temperature goes below 30F my fingertips go numb on any ride lasting longer than 20 minutes. I've ridden with these down to 27F and that's the absolute limit before I start really cursing my decision not to wear my heated gloves.
The features are great. There is decent finger and knuckle protection without it being gaudy and looking like something out of a sci-fi movie. I haven't used the visor wiper yet but I'll be glad I have it when I eventually need it. The gauntlet style fits over my jacket arms very well and easily cinches tight with a tug of the bungee closure.
The durability seems average. I've not tested these in a crash. I am noticing some stitching coming loose around one of the knuckle protectors. It's something I will fix rather than replacing the gloves if that's any indication of how much I like them.

Warmer glove for cold and rain
It doesn't rain much where I live, but I ride every day. The gloves provide nice protection from wind and rain. I ordered a size bigger and can just put my hand it with my freeze out gloves on, albeit a bit tight. They are by far warmer than my summer gauntlets.

Had to absorb the cost of returning the product. These were reviewed as small so I ordered a larger size, but needed 2 sizes larger. The biggest defect is that the stitching/construction on one of the thumbs limits your ability to extend your thumb. They are warm and well made otherwise.

These gloves provide an incredible amount of warmth in the environment suited for their rating. Of course, as with any product of this type there are going to be some short comings but the list for this one is short. I ride in western Pa and usually up to or around December. I would wear a regular glove for most of the riding season but found a need for a better quality glove as the season would progress. These gloves offer durability coupled with ample insulating characteristics. In addition to the excellent protection from the cold these gloves also have additional features that make them stand out. They do run a little small and need stretched for maximum hand extension especially between the thumb and forefinger, so consider ordering one size up. As always, read over all reviews to be best informed.

First pair of winter riding gloves and they are very nice. I got an XL and they are snug. They seem to run a bit smaller than I expected. They fit well enough though. Happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend.
