Spidi Alu-Tech Glove (Size 3XL Only)
decent cold weather glove - runs very small
With heated grips I'm comfortable in these gloves down to just about freezing. Decent protection with hard TPU knuckles and mostly waterproof. Reflective Spidi logo is a nice touch as well. Have been durable over a few thousand miles so far and showing no visible wear.
I normally wear an XL glove, however I purchased these at closeout so there were very few sizes to choose from. So I took a risk and ordered an XXXL since many reviews mentioned they ran small, and they fit near perfectly.

Good Fall gloves
I moved to a slightly colder climate (from SoCal to NorCal), so I needed a bit warmer gloves. These work well. I have used them in the rain a few times and they were good (other than the lack of rubber bar on the thumb to wipe the visor). Very comfortable, and the sizing guide was accurate. Probably not great for really cold winters, but good for bay area winter.

Good quality and very warm
I have had these gloves for almost three month and they are holding up very well. I live in New England and have used them on the highway at tempetures down to 33 degrees with no problems. They do run on the small side I ordered one size larger than usual and they are a little snug but ok. I might even go two sizes bigger next time.

These gloves are a fantastic middle ground between protection and flexibility. I absolutely love these gloves :)

Good for the price
I'll preface my review by saying that I ride a naked bike, so this is based on experience without any sort of wind protection.
For the most part this is a great glove. It's warm, waterproof, and (for the most part) windproof. I also need to say that they are sized VERY small - smaller than the site suggests. My summer gloves are Lg and fit comfortably, so I purchased a set in XL, knowing they ran on the small side. I had to return them in exchange for XXL. I've ridden in the rain and even with the gauntlet tucked under the sleeve there were no leaks. Going back to the wind protection (or lack thereof), my hands started getting uncomfortably cold in the 50s. My only real complaint is that they don't have a squeegee on the finger like a lot of other gloves do.

good cold weather glove.
I've been riding all winter with these gloves and they have worked exceptionally well. The only time they couldn't handle the cold was when the wind chill got well below freezing.

the glove works as advertised in keeping your hand warm down to the 40s, as i've experienced so far.
fingers are slightly short so reaching with your thumb for controls are might create some fatigue as your have to reach pretty hard to use them. maybe it'll improve as i break them in more.
however, one big caveat. if your hand gets slightly damp, the liner pulls out of the fingers making it hard to get on the next time you use them. really annoying.

Very good gloves!
These are nice gloves. Warm enough for rides at around 40 degrees Farenheit. Not toasty, but no frozen fingers either.
I am 5' 8" and with normal size hands and ordered the XL size which fits well. Finger length is perfect, with only the pinkie having a touch of empty space at the tip. The inner liner seems well stitched into the rest of the glove. (With my last pair of winter gloves, after a while the inner liner detached from the shell of the glove a bit.) I like the no frills cuff, that it only has one wide velcro strap. The palms may be a touch too padded and thus compromise road feel, but it seems that this padding is compressing or else I am getting used to it. There could be more protection on the outside edge of the glove, along the outside of the pinkie and lower, but these aren't full-spec race gloves so it's not really an oversight. Still ...
I ride a 2010 Honda CBR-600rr, and I find the glove's dexterity good for the controls. (The Honda could actually have larger turn signal buttons and such if you ask me.) Pre-curve is fine, but could arguably be a bit more curved. The knuckle protector sits nicely over the knuckle and does not pinch or bind at all.
Construction looks great (though time will tell) with no stray threads hanging anywhere and most stitching is double-stitching with heavier thread where it counts.
Tip: if your hands ever get cold for any reason, when at a stoplight, reach down and slide your hands near a fairing port and catch some engine heat for a quick warm up. Don't reach into the port too far, and certainly don't ever do this bare-handed!
