Joe Rocket Windchill Gloves
Not as effective as advertised
I've ridden with these gloves in 45+ degrees and if I didn't have heated grips, my hands would have been really cold. In addition, the fit of the glove causes circulation to be constricted in my right thumb and I have to shake my hand every ten minutes or so to get the blood flowing again.

Very nice, well made simple gloves. JR quality
I bought these to go with my Classic 92 jacket. They run a size small as Anthony states in the video. They are very warm and appear to be well made. Miles over the winter will tell, but are very comfortable right out of the box. Not SERIOUS riding gloves but for everyday use are perfect and typical Joe Rocket Quality.

Great gloves to keep your hands warm!
Bought these gloves for fall riding in Minnesota and I couldn't be happier!
They kept my hands nice and toasty in 40 degree weather with a mix of highway and back roads. They run a little small so order a size up, for me I ordered an XL when my usual size is a L. The lining is bounded to the leather which is really nice so you don't pull out the liner when you take them off. The strap at the wrist is great for securing them to your hands and really easy to use when you have the gloves on. There is no airflow into these gloves (but why would you need that if you're riding in cold conditions).
Overall great glove if you want something that isn't crazy expensive and want to keep your hands warm!

I did as others suggested and went up a size.
The hand is slightly curved, and the pinky is a little long on me. These are excellent for the weather in west texas, Will be way to hot on warm days. I can even fit some tin liners inside if needed, although this would make the gloves fairly buly.
Only issue is the cuff is too small to fit over the sleeve on any jacket, they are for sure for under the cuff wear. This is fine as the cuff is long enough to not pull out.
I really like the single strap for adjusting, quick and easy.

Good but not great
Good I got a large but still slightly tight overall and for some reason extra tight at the left little finger, like it was just stitched for a smaller length. Decided to keep it and hope they stretch out some. So far my rides have been in the 40s considering the wind chill factor and within 5 miles or so I start feeling fingertip chill. More so as the ride progresses but not so uncomfortable that I would abandon them. Overall, just good but not outstanding.

Decent glove - not much gel
Decent glove, ordered these last min for a late season ride. Temps as low as 27 °F and they kept me reasonably warm (with guards and warmers).
Cuff is weird, not big enough to be considered a gauntlet but too bulky to fit inside the sleeve of a jacket. Pain putting on and taking off.
Calling these gel gloves is a bit of a stretch. As far as I can tell there's a 3/4" triangle of gel on the outside heel of the hand 1/8" thick (maybe).

Good, inexpensive gloves
I bought these gloves because I was looking for something waterproof and warm. They have proven to be both and for a decent price. I will warn you that the gloves run small, so order up at least one size. The only issue I initially had with the gloves is that the glove doesn't open up all the way, making it difficult to stretch them to reach the brake and clutch until the gloves are a little broken in; this just took some time. Now, I like them a lot.

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.
