River Road Norther Gloves
Good value, was what I expected
I purchased these gloves because my experience with Thinsulate linings has been very favorable. I also didn't want big bulky gloves, so these fit the bill. They are good down to 40 degrees. Delivery was on time.

I bought these gloves for winter and they were warm even in single digit degree days except if I went over 40mph. When riding over 40mph, my front fingers did feel cold where all the wind was hitting. I did lay my bike down once while where these gloves and they slid well along with giving good cushion.

Don't waste your money
I bought the large size at first. I used the size chart to make my decision. The gloves arrived and were too tight, I paid to send them back and reordered the XL size. They arrived and were just as tight , the only difference was the fingers were a lot longer. I wasn't going to pay to return them again so I wore them one morning on the ride to work and they gave no protection in the cold. To sum up I wore them once, they're sitting in a drawer and I'm out $$$$. A waste of money.

I ended up returning these because the sizing was weird for me. I usually wear an xl, but with these the middle finger was too short, so when I flexed my hand it put too much pressure on the glove. They were already bulky, so I was afraid up sizing for the correct finger length would make the glove way too wide and bulky, so I'll keep searching for an ideal fit. Also, I wasn't impressed with the build quality, the leather had a couple markings in it and some of the seams seemed poorly stitched up. I guess for the price you can't complain much. They did seem like they would be warm though, so I'll give them a good bang for the buck rating if you can find the right fit.

Good for Cold Weather
I recently used these gloves to go from NJ to Boston in temperatures that dipped as low as about 38F. I wouldn't say that my hands were particularly warm by the time it was all said and done, but the performance for a non-heated glove was fantastic and I never felt like I was losing feeling to my hands which is about as much as I was asking of this glove.
My only complaint and the reason for only a four-star review is that the fingers are very oddly-shaped. The thumb is too long and narrow and a bit uncomfortable while the rest of the fingers seem to fit just fine. I guess the designer had weird thumbs?

Snug fit not a lot of finger length for those with long fingers. I have been cougth in near freezing rain twice now and the gloves stayed dry and toasty.
