REV'IT! Carver H20 Gloves
No wind, no problem.
Wanted a windproof glove for cold Wisconsin weather and I found it with the Carver H20. I have about a 20min commute, and at speeds up to 70mph and temps hovering around 20F, these gloves performed flawlessly. I felt no wind and my hands stayed nice and toasty. Definitely go a size larger, I typically wear a medium, I ordered a large, and it fits perfect. The touchscreen fingers work great on my GS3 phone. I was so impressed with Rev'It that I just ordered a different style from them to wear the rest of the year.

Great glove for cold weather commuting
I looked everywhere for a cold weather glove mostly for my 20 minute commute to work in downtown Chicago. It's cold, and on top of that, usually windy here, so I need a glove that could take me down to the 20's temperature wise (under 20, I don't typically ride). I looked everywhere and could not find any gloves with an actual temperature rating, so I'm going to include that here.
This glove is awesome, fits well, looks nice, very flexible, and bonus for the touch screen fingertips.
I've been riding in ~25 degree F temperatures for 20 minute spans and my hands have been just fine. Anything under 25 and it starts to get a little cold, so just depends on your comfort level.

Very comfortable 3 season glove
We bought these gloves as an alternative to our heated gloves to be used with our Hippo Hands in cold weather riding. There is no doubt these gloves will work well for all weather conditions except the summer. No vents but for a light weight three season glove without bulk, there is decent knuckle protection, some palm cushioning too.
I like how around the fingers they a flexible type material making this a very comfortable glove to ride in. Need to test this out in our "wet" coast rain and will report back. I also like not having a gator cuff. Simple good old fashion elastic like cuff that will not fit over your jacket but under the sleeve.
They say H20 proof and I will believe it when we get to use them in rain. Thin liner in the palm area which is for picking up the heat from your grips. Nice looking glove too. Recommend for the price. Just need time to see how they last and hold up to regular usage.

Excellent Street Rider but Well Enough for Sustained Highway Speeds
I am currently riding in the DC Metro area. As long as there is no threat of snow or ice, I ride. At tempatures above 40 degrees, I never feel a thing in these glove. Once tempatures drop below 35, I begin to feel the chill at sustained highway speeds. The chill seeps in along the side of my fingers. Tis a slightly different chill then when it starts at your fingertips.. I have taken to keeping a thin pair of Mechanics Gloves on hand for highway speeds below 40 degrees. No matter the tempature, once I drop below highway speeds to street riding, my fingers begin to warm again.
When wearing these gloves, it needs to be kept in mind that they are not of the gauntlet style. Unless your complimentary riding gear can form an airtight seal around the cuff of these gloves, you will feel a slight chill up the arm at times.
All in all, an excellent pair of gloves.. I maintain about 40 minutes of highway speed each way between work and home. At tempatures of 40 and above, these gloves work wonderfully. Once the tempature drops below 35, chill creeps in at highway speeds but not at stop and go street riding.
Additionally, I enjoy the comfort, flexibility and mobility of the gloves. They totally out perform any gloves I nickeled and dimed over for cold weather riding.

Good colder weather glove
I like this glove due to the under the cuff...with layers a gauntlet restricted my wrists and created tension and fatigue.
these do the trick and keep pretty warm...plus the knuckle protection too. they are comfortable as well and fit like revzilla recommended. one size larger than I usually take and i take a large in all sorts of gloves whether for riding or skiing which i do both a lot...
the coldest i really ride is about 40-50 degrees F and they did the trick but as I rode closer to the 40 degree mark I could sense they might not be enough for longer riding. I felt slight cold on around a 10 mile ride...
Revzilla is a quality shop, no doubt. the order was processed quickly and shipping was free and quick too on this order.
Hope this helps

Warm, comfortable, stylish
This glove does the job well for chilly riding. Fit ran a little large -- medium still leaves a little room at end of fingers, but I kept this rather than go another size down. Very comfortable glove with good safety features at a decent price.

Great gloves for cold weather
These gloves are great for cold weather riding. I haven't tried out any of the waterproofing really and hope I don't have to but I am pretty sure that they will work just fine. The only problem that I have with the gloves is that they seem rather thick at the fingers so you can't really press buttons or turn knobs on your bike while they are on. The gloves are great though if you don't need to turn knobs or push buttons and you can really feel a lot through the palm. Overall I would recommend these gloves if you are going to ride in temperatures above 3 degrees Celsius but probably not too much colder than that. The touch screen feature is also quite convenient.
