Spidi T-Winter H2OUT Gloves
Just received my pair of these gloves and I wanted to like them. They fit slightly tight for a large. I thought I would get over that and went to the garage to test them on the controls. Even though they are slightly bulky, I was able to hit the controls without issue; however, the thumbs were pushing to the end and I could feel the seams.
If these were leather, I could see keeping them and breaking them in but since they are mostly textile, they aren't going to break in enough to make a difference. Going back...
One thing I want to mention, you can feel slight movement of the lower layer of material if you really wiggle your fingers or when putting on/removing the glove. The liner stayed inside but again, you know it's there.

A good glove for the right temps
These Spidi's are pretty well built. The liner is sewn in which is nice, and the gauntlet is small which is good if you prefer to tuck your gloves into your sleeves. The knuckle protection is also a plus. I do not recommend these gloves for temps under 45 degrees, though. I rode 15 min across town in 38 degree weather at city speeds and by the time I got to my destination my fingers were already well on their way to numbness. For the price, though, the amount of cold protection down into the 40's is nothing to scoff at.

Make sure you measure your hand before purchasing. Comfortable, stylish, and warm in high 20s - mid 30s. Would definitely recommend.

Good, Temperature specific comfort zone
I bought this as a winter glove as well as for any rainy days. I find that sub 10 degrees Celsius and the airflow actually makes my fingers cold. I would range this for 10-25 degrees for optimum comfort. As for the waterproof, thankfully I haven't had to test that. maybe when summer rolls around i can put them to the test!

Runs small, good protection, warm down to 45-50
As I normally wear a large, I disregarded the recommendations that they do run a little small. It's just a little tight as is, with the cuff fitting nicely under my jacket sleeves. They're warm enough for California, and do have a decent set of safety features (with the knuckle protector and assorted slide areas) that they're worth the money.
Just size 'em right.

Good gloves for the money, but nothing exceptional
I wanted a pair of winter gloves that weren't big mittens. These do fairly well, but I wouldn't recommend them for temps under 35 F. That may be in part to the size though. I normally wear large, but these are pretty tight, so the lack of space for air to insulate especially around the finger tips, that I suspect they'd work better if I had purchased the XL.
The look is pretty basic. Nothing too gaudy. My only complaint is that the gauntlets are pretty narrow so I tend to wear them under the jacket. That itself isn't a problem for me, but the only reflective fabric is on the cuff, so the way I wear them there is no reflective surface. Minor gripe.

Love em, they work great in the rain.
A very nice glove. Solid construction, comfortable.
I have ridden them in the rain, heavy rain, 3 times in the first week. They work as advertised. It's been between 33F and 43F, and the gloves are keeping my hands warm and dry and comfy.
I guessed at size based on the video review on revzilla.com. Usually I wear XL in work gloves and MTB gloves. Bought the the XL for this glove and they were too tight. Used revzilla's easy return policy, bought the XXL, and they fit great.
Looks like a really solid construction glove for me. I'd buy em again.

Nice leather-free winter gloves
If you, like me, are searching for leather-free winter gloves, because you are a vegan or don't wear leather just like you no longer wear buffalo skin and deer-pelt shoes in 2014, this is your ticket. But, these gloves stand on their own in terms of other attributes, too.
I find the fit to be just very slightly snug for what I am used to, however I did buy my normal size. The next size up was too large.
In terms of warmth and quality of the guantlet protecting from wind getting into my sleeve, I think they are very good. I can feel my heated grips but the top of my hands are comfortable. In terms of air flow I rated them excellent because I cannot feel the air at all, and that's what I want.
I have not tested the waterproof abilities of these gloves yet.
I have ridden these in temps from 20-60F and they remained comfortable in these temps. At 60F things were getting a little warm however my hands were able to heat up without perspiration becoming a problem. (There was a surprise weather change). At 20F I was very happy with heated grips also in use.
Overall, highly recommended, I am really liking SPIDI glove products lately. I purchased SPIDI summer gloves earlier this year and love them, too.
****NOTE**** If you intend to try these gloves in person, these gloves are not normally in stock in the Revzilla showroom. I got lucky and they had them accidentally there. Talk to their customer service in advance to have pairs around for you to try if you wish to buy in person. They are happy to set this up for you, because Revzilla is awesome. (For real)
