Spidi T-Winter H2OUT Gloves
These gloves give sufficient protection against the elements without adding much heft. Everyone's tolerance is different, I've been able to do 10 - 20 miles of highway riding at 0-5 C. While my hands weren't exactly cozy at the end, I survived just fine. Picking up this glove was in part a tradeoff I had to make. I choose the relative thin-less of this glove as an advantage. You'll lose some temperature tolerance compared to a thicker glove, but what you get for it is a much better feedback from the controls.
These gloves don't have much use right now since it's the summer, but otherwise have been great over the last fall, winter and early spring. Never leaked even a drop in strong downpours. They truly hold up to their claim.

Slightly chillier than I had hoped, especially considering how thick they are. The thickness does impede control usage somewhat, unfortunately, however they are warm enough to make winter in Georgia bearable so far.
I really love the look of them. The knuckles are very hard and I feel they are very protective and add style to the glove. One thing I find odd is that the only reflector on it is on the bottom of your wrist where it can't be seen.
These gloves promise waterproof, and they certainly deliver. I filled a sink with water and dunked the glove underneath with my hand in it. My hands were completely dry when I pulled them out.
All in all, I would swear by these gloves. They are perfect for me.

Not good enough for cold weather...
It's only Fall/Autumn here in Oregon and these gloves are not warm enough for wearing in the mornings. I'll be seeking some liners - though the gloves are quite snug on my hands, so liners may make them TOO snug.
If you need a winter glove (less than 60 degrees) these are probably not for you...sadly.

Stylish & Effective
I love these gloves. I have worn these in a variety of conditions with no issues. Worn both outside and inside my jacket cuff.
-60 degrees and sunny: worked well, not too hot.
-45 degrees at 80MPH: Did fine at speed in the mid40s for 1.5-2 hours of straight riding
-50-55 degrees and rain. 3 hours in light rain, exterior of the glove was wet but hands stayed warm and dry.
-30 degrees. Fingers started getting cold when temperature dipped below 40. At 30 they were pretty cold but I could still function for the 45 minutes it took to get up and over the pass. Wouldn't want to ride for extended periods under 40 degrees.
Caveat: I have a ST1300 with good faring and hand protection.

Exactly as described by RevZilla video
Requested as Christmas gift after watching RevZilla Video(Nice job RevZilla). Gloves work well in 35 degree weather. Comfortable, warm and good price from RevZilla. I got the large and have average size hands and fit is perfect. The Gauntlet feature wraps my coat well to eliminate air. Bottom line, good fit, great quality and keeps my hands warm on local and highway roads. Have not use the waterproof feature yet..which is fine with me anyway! Thx RevZilla.

The gloves are warm in a strange way, its like they feel warm when you're wearing them, but when you take your hands out of them, they are cold.. but still a huge improvement over my a-stars sp-2's. They keep my hands from going otherwise numb. The lowest temps I've used these were high 40s low 50s, it makes the ride bearable (freeway, 65mph).
Air flow is rated poor, but thats what you want, keep the wind out.
Haven't tested the water-proofness yet. The gauntlets are slim, as shown in the video. The velcro strap on the wrist does't feel as secure as it ought to. Tightened down I can still pull the glove off my hand. I had to return a pair because the stitching came undone where the velcro wrist strap met the gauntlet.
The knuckles feel substantial enough to help in a fall in terms of abrasion and impact, but there is little to no feeling of reinforcement when it comes to bending the fingers (breaks, sprains).

Awesome vegan winter glove
Very comfortable and warm for my San Francisco commutes. I wear all my gloves with a kevlar liner but even without them these dont leave my hands super sweaty. Tough to find a durable quality glove without leather but this one is pretty much what I was looking for. So far no rain, but certainly warm and comfortable. Sizing seems to be pretty close to the alpinestars gloves i've had.

Really nice gloves, but...
These gloves are well made, very comfortable and stylish. These are listed as winter gear. Maybe I was expecting more warmth that is reasonable, but they are not quite warm enough to be labeled that way, IMHO.
Still love 'em tho.
