Great range of motion & light weight
When I purchase motorcycle gloves, the most important thing to me is that they feel natural and that they don't get in the way of me controlling my bike.
I've gone from a cheap pair of insulated leather gloves from Cycle World to the Spidi HTOut to these.
The cheap pair was very uncomfortable, especially in the fingertips. Totally not even worth the 15 bucks or so that I spent on them.
The H2Outs were far bulkier than these and didn't even do that great of a job keeping my hands warm. They were also not good at keeping my hands dry. My biggest complaint was that I never felt comfortable covering the brakes or reaching from the clutch. My second biggest complaint was that they were too bulky for me to be able to feel the controls.
That brings me to these Alpinestars. They allow full movement of my hand. Win. They are well constructed. I wouldn't call them overly bulky, because I can still feel what's under my hand and fingers. For example, hitting the blinker, horn, or kill switch is not a problem at all. Even when my hands are fully on the grips, they feel fine and I can grab for a control almost as quickly as with my summer gloves.
That leaves warmth. This is a 50-degree + glove. For shorter rides, non-freeway — perhaps even colder. I haven't tested them in the dead of winter, yet. If they are too cold for my 20-minute commute and weekend rides, I plan on picking up a pair of thin, thermal glove liners to help, which would add about 20 bucks.
This is a good glove. Oh, and you probably need a size larger than you think you need, they run small.

Not useable below 50 degrees. This gloves provide little warmth for a bike without wind protection. They are also too bulky for their lack of warmth.
