Joe Rocket Women's Sub Zero Gloves
Exactly what I was looking for, and great price
Looking for a cooler weather glove, had a hard time finding a woman's glove that wasn't pink or purple, and wasn't a summer vented glove. Initially I thought the fit in the thumbs was too small but after taking them off and putting them back on several times, I realized the thinsulate just wasn't completely turned outward yet, I could see and feel the extra finger room but couldn't get my finger to push out all the way. Once I got the inside stretched correctly, they fit perfectly. I wear a small in other brands and these were true to size. Not a whole lot of protection but better than any winter glove I could find, especially for the price. LOVE the extra length up over the wrist, which is adjustable, and up the forearm where u may get wind if your jacket isn't cuffed which mine is not. Would buy them again in a second!

Short fingers and thumb
The thumb, in particular, is so short that the gloves are unusable. Price was super cheap but the fit was horrible.

Good but could be better
Pros: style, well-made
Cons: 100g thinsulate isn't very warm, odd sizing
I bought these because of the style - I hate anything that can't pass for regular street wear. I live in Wisconsin and so these won't be seeing their intended use for quite a while, but I *have* been wearing them as my daily winter gloves. The 100g Thinsulate isn't amazing for our subzero winter temperatures, but for the price, they're better constructed than anything I've found in any mall store. The gauntlet style is great. I was hesitant about the floral design (what's wrong with plain black? Just because I'm female doesn't mean I want flowers on everything) but the print is subtle enough that I've forgotten it's there. The style is skinny enough that I can easily tuck the gauntlets into the sleeves of my coat and look completely normal, but I haven't really needed to since the fabric blends well enough with my winter coat that I forget they're there.
My only big complaint is with the sizing. The thumbs are oddly short. It's not bad enough for me to return them, and I think going up a size would leave my hands swimming. But they feel a little awkward, and because the thumb is too short, my hand can't quite get all the way in and the fingers are then slightly too long... I have tiny hands and I've never had a glove fit like this before - usually the fingers and the thumb are all too long even in a size small. Maybe I got an odd pair.

Very good glove for the money.
I've never been overly fond of Joe Rocket products but I ordered these gloves for a riding partner making a winter ride with me. They're good. Leather gloves would be nicer and may perform better but these textile covered gloves are light-weight, warm and economically priced.

Ideal for rain
These gloves are ideal for cold weather, its thermal insulation works so great as to be completely waterproof makes them ideal for those rainy days, would not recommend for long trips because it does not have a very good protection but hey this is not an end but keep the temperature of your hands, I recommend it to someone looking from the cold sacrificing protection
