Tour Master Cold-Tex 2.0 Gloves
40 is warm again.
Good gloves overall, They fit well and are quite warm. Ive been using them for a few weeks and got caught in a downpour they did just fine not even a hint of wetness, wish I could say the same for my rain pants.
My only complaint is that they are on the bulky side but riding in 40 degree weather and being warm is much more important than a little bulk.
I took a notch off of Protection and durability because It does not seem like they would hold up well in a fairly high speed crash id imagine anything around 60mph would be fine.
Air flow is low, but they are waterproof winter gloves... kinda expected.
Features are average. They are a gauntlet type which works well I wish they had a closer for just around the wrist to make sure they stay on during a crash but they do feel snug with the Velcro around the gauntlet and there is no wiper. I rain-x my wind screen so i don't deem that a necessity.
I've spent more and gotten less id 100% buy these again every year even if they only hold up for a year. I have a feeling due to the quality though they will last a lot longer than that.

Nice gloves. They are very warm when I drive in mid 40's to high 50's. My hands always got cold. No more.

I received the gloves in 2 days. I rode in the winter in Phoenix. After breaking in they get better. With the insulation, you lose a small amount of dexterity. With the ride home in the mid 70's, I notice nearly no sweat.

These gloves are great and warm for the price.
I bought these because I needed gloves for when it gets child up here in South Dakota. The keep my hands warm down to about 35-40 degrees, then after about 30 minutes my fingers start getting cold. I dunked them in my sink up to the wrist and no water got in at all, so that's very good.

Does the job.
A fine cold weather glove. Of course, the added material for warmth makes the glove thicker than the warm weather Tour Master gloves, which I also use. But after a ride or two there's no problem with the handle bar controls. The feel is acceptable.
I rode comfortably when the air temp was 31 degrees. I don't
think the cold protection offered by the gloves will help as much
at lower temps--at least not for my comfort needs.

Bulky but warm
If you're looking to keep your hands warm and not worried about much else, these gloves are a good choice.
Here's the worst conditions I've used these gloves in so far: 2 hours below freezing in stop and go traffic with occasional stretches of open interstate up to 70mph. My fingertips were a bit chilled, but nothing serious. I have no fairings and no heated gear, so its all glove when it comes to keeping my hands warm. Windproofing is better than I expected. Bottom line is if your hands are warm when you put on the gloves, they'll stay reasonably warm until you take them off again. I like to stick my hands down by the engine as it warms up to sort of pre-heat them right before I slip the gloves on and ride off : )
Dexterity is OK if you don't mind working through a little bit of bulk- the leather palm helps with grip. You pretty much have to take these things off for the fine dexterity required to put on a helmet and other gear, but once you're on the bike unless you have ridiculously small buttons or things to operate they do just fine. Haven't had them in the rain yet, but they kept the water out under the faucet, so I'm hopeful.
Generally, I am happy with how warm these gloves are, and that's what I bought them for. Not a lot of protection and they're a bit on the bulky side- but hey, they're winter gloves.

I use these when it's too cold for my leather gloves but not cold enough for my electric gloves. That's usually in the 40's. I have electric grips and hand guards that help with the cold too. The sizing is ok. A size Large is too small and an XL is a little big. I went with the XL anyways since it's more comfortable. They're great for the price though.

These gloves are only good down to about 50 degrees. At highway speeds with temps in the 40's my fingers were cold almost instantly, They do seem to be made well and at lower speeds keep me warm.They are quite bulky as most winter gloves are. The low price buys low performance in the cold.
