Speed and Strength Urge Overkill Gloves
Not bad for the price
I got these to use on cold mornings, or in the rain. The gauntlets reach my jacket and stay put, so wind and rain don't blow up my arms. Initially, these bound painfully at my thumbs. As they broke in, they're still snug, but no longer hurt. Temp wise, these are good down to the high 40s. I'd want a liner or a different glove to go below.

These gloves make me feel, eh.
For me, I'm not happy with the temperture range for these gloves. Anything over 70 degrees outside and my hands are sweating, anything under 50 degrees and my fingers get cold. They did keep my hands dry for that one time I got to use them in the rain and they do go nicely with my matching Urge Overkill Jacket and Overpants.

NOT WATERPROOF, just like all of the Urge Overkill line from S&S
Ok so I got the entire urge overkill outfit. When you buy into a second-tier brand you know what you are getting into and that's exactly what these gloves are, just OK. Average.
PROS: they are comfortable and have very good feel to the handlebars. Also they are good looking. Lastly they are good for mild weather.
CONS: Not waterproof. Don't get them believing they are.. I didn't but was forced to know the truth under 3 days of rain at the Blue Ridge parkway. Waterproofing was simply a joke. But I knew this when I got them.
So, my rating is ok because they are what you pay for, and for that I recommend them. If you want waterproofing, don't be fooled by anything else that is not Goretex, that's the only thing that is going to do it.

Great medium weather glove.
These fit good, provide plenty of protection and are warm enough for riding into the low 40's, yet not too bulky. No problems using the bike controls. They cover my jacket sleeves nicely to keep the air from going up them. Worth the price.

Max of 40 degrees cold weather
Ok, so glove does a decent job of maintaining a relatively frost bite free hand. My only real gripe are the Pinky and the inner liner. The liner wants to come out if your hand gets the slightest bit of moisture. The pinky on my left glove is about 4/16 of an inch off every time I wear it. S/S so close but it misses the mark.

Good all weather glove, but not for below 30. Water proofing works well, and comfortable.

I was looking for some gloves that could hold up in the South Florida rain. So far so good. It definitely keeps your hands dry and warm up to about 40 degree weather (anything under 40 and you start to feel a chill.)
I should say that the gloves feel very bulky, especially at the wrists. They take some getting used to so I would wear them frequently until they're well broken in.

Fairly comfy cold weather gloves
Been wearing these for a few weeks now, morning rides to work in the 40s are comfy. When it was in the 30s my fingers got cold by the end of my 20 min ride, but not unbearably so.
Haven't had a chance to experience the waterproof aspect, but hoping it will work well.
Bottom line, great glove for the money - will keep you warm in cold weather if your hands are normally warm. Might be a little thin for people that are sensitive to cold.
