I found these gloves to be annoyingly long in the thumb, making for a clumsy glove for operating my blinkers and horn. They also bind in the thumb area which makes my thumbs fatigue on longer rides.
I feel like a size smaller and I wouldn't be able to get my hands in them at all.
Other than that they are adequate spring/fall gloves. I wouldn't use them for really cold weather though they aren't exceptionally warm. I like the wiper on the thumb, it has come in handy a couple of times. I am stuck with them for now but won't be buying a second pair.

Save your money
I bought these gloves a while back. I was on a long ride and ran into some stormy weather. Temps were cool but not cold. I primarily wanted something to keep my hands dry. Though these are advertised as waterproof, they aren't even close. I would say barely even water resistant. My hands were black from the dyes when I took the gloves off. What made it even worse for me is that I emailed Firstgear about the issue and they didn't even bother to respond. Some of their other gloves may be very good but their lack of customer support is reason enough for me to never buy or recommend their products again. No big deal to them I guess but it is important to the 12,000 members at my motorcycle touring site.

Good waterproof glove for moderately cold weather.
I seem to be collecting gloves the way some people collect shoes. Some of this is due to my search to find the perfect winter glove without going to heated ones. I bought these to compare to the FirstGear Fargo which are all leather whereas these are a mix of leather and textile. I probably should not have bought these as the have the same amount of insulation (40 grams) but it's always good to have spare gloves.
Like the Fargo, these fit true to size and are warm so long as the temperature stays above the upper 30s. Wearing in the day with sun will extend that range lower but at night, they get chilly as you dip below 40F. Liners help but a glove with more insulation would be better. They are not a bulky glove and have great feel on the grips, the gauntlet is large and wide and fits well over my sleeves. The wrist adjuster works fine as well.
I have worn these gloves in rain showers and my hands stayed dry. The hands and fingers also did not get sweaty or clammy so the breathable Hipora™ membrane works. I put "poor" on air flow because these are not mesh gloves and in this case, poor is good.
All in all, these are great gloves for moderate winter temperatures. If you don't want to pay the extra money for the Fargo gloves, these are a great alternative. The offer all the benefits of the Fargo but are just not all leather.

Performed as expected
I've used these gloves on several trips and they have kept my hands completely dry in light rain and mostly dry in heavy rain (some leakage down from sleeve, which may be impossible to avoid with any glove). You'll want to be sure to cinch up the elastic cords to minimize rain intrusion. In cool weather (50-60 degrees F) the 3M Thinsulate also provides needed warmth.
NOTE: I'm always a little suspect of GoreTex as I have found it to seldom be truly waterproof. So the first thing I did upon buying these gloves was to waterproof them with a spray that I bought at my local hardware store.

Seem to be Great gloves
These are great gloves. I bought them to use with heated grips on a DS bike. I think without heated grips they might not be insulated enough on really cold days.
The gauntlets are perfect, big enough to go over the jacket sleve or under in the rain.
Very supple leather, no break in needed, feel good and fit good.
I have not tried them in the rain yet.
