Rukka Lobster Gore-Tex Gloves
I'd recommend these gloves
Very comfortable pair of gloves. I've worn them in misty, 24 degree weather recently, and they kept my hands warm and dry. However, it was only a short 15 mile ride. I'll be testing them on a longer trip this wknd, and the temps will be 24 degrees for the low and about 53 for the high, that day. The only thing that I'm a bit disappointed in is the fact that even though the gloves appear to have two fingers and a thumb, in actuality, (inside) the fingers are still seperated by some type of membrane. Although this doesn't seem to be a problem, so far, I was expecting the 2/2 split "lobster" fingers to have each pair of fingers be "together" in order to assist in keeping them warm. Overall, so far so good, and I'm glad I purchased them.

Love this glove!
By far the warmest glove I've owned. My daily commute is 90 miles round trip averaging 65 MPH. I have a triumph scrambler with hand guards and on 40 degree days I don't even have to turn on my heated grips. When it comes to riding in the rain these gloves keep my hands dry. Overall I am extremely happy and I totally recommend.

Looking forward to colder weather
This is my second pair of Rukka Gloves, the first pair I bought were the Apollo gloves which are the best pair of 3-season gloves I've had. But of course needed something for the colder weather, so after much research, picked the Rukka Lobster gloves.
Fit is good, I went up a size from the size 10 Apollo's that I have so that I could use gloves liners if needed, but the size 11 Lobster fits pretty well without the liners in and great with the liners on. The lining of the gloves is nice and soft and with the Gore-Tex construction, I have no reservations about riding in any kind of weather.
Only thing that I wish it had was some sort of knuckle protection, but the scaphoid slider is nice, big and beefy, so that was a plus.
And for $129 for a Gore-Tex glove...that seems like a pretty good price to me.

I like em
My hands are always cold, but I love riding. So I bought these in conjunction with some Gerbings heated glove liners.
I can now ride at highway speeds in 20 degree F weather, and the temp controller is set to about 3/4 or lower once I'm up to temp.
Nice leather on the inside of the hand, TPU palm slider with memory foam is a great touch. Comfortable and waterproof. Used for about 6 hours during a steady rain / mist and no leaks. No wet spots riding for about an hour the other day during the latest snow storm here in NY.
One important thing to note, is that while there are dual finger compartments on the outside, on the inside there is a liner that still separates you into single fingers.
As far as sizing goes, I bought one size up from their chart's recommendation. The liners fit tightly but have broken in nicely.

These keep me warm down to 35 degrees at 50 mph on my 30 minute commute. I like the wiper on the finger. Wish the gauntlets were a little longer.

Pricey, but you get what you pay for!
These are on the expensive side but they are as advertised, very warm and comfortable. I've worn them at 20 degrees with a 20 minute commute thru the city (about 30 mph max) with warm fingers.
