Firstgear Fargo Gloves
First thing, I am very much in need for what is called a American fit. At 5.8 200lb the euro fit with the narrow hand and long skinny fingers is not for me. That said, these gloves fit spot on. The gauntlet of these glove are just the right size to go over most any jacket without being to big. The material is light and very comfortable. No air gets through and warm down to temps in the mid 40's.

Best gloves I have owned, dry and warm.
Bought these gloves when the Velcro on the Bilt gloves I had gave out after only a few months. Decided that a Velcro closure was not the best option. These First Gear gloves have kept my hands dry and warm. The cinching strap works better than Velcro and the gauntlet draw string works well though I can't seem to do it with one hand. No matter, once it is set I rarely change it. I recommend these gloves. Sizing chart works well too and I bought a large, there is even enough room for a glove liner if needed.

This one was just right.
I ride a 10 mile commute at 7am in the rockies, when the needle hit 28°f I knew it was time for new gloves. These fit the bill perfectly. Good generous fit without being too big, the sizing chart was on point. Nice pre-curve in the fingers. Best of all no draft at 65 and no numb fingers. Only complaint is the gauntlet could use a wider opening to fit over my insulated jacket easier.

Pretty good gloves for the money
The gloves fit pretty much exactly like the size guide suggested which is good. The gloves are well made and comfortable to wear. The fit straps on the back of the hand are easy to adjust while wearing the gloves as are the elastic cuff straps. The cuffs fit well over the sleeves of my riding jackets. More to the point of the gloves, do they keep your hands comfortably warm? Yes, I've been reasonably comfortable as low as the low to mid 40's. Once you start dipping into the 30's you'll want some additional warmth, perhaps some glove liners.

I was trying to use my ski gloves for the cold weather and they just wouldn't allow me to grip easily. These gloves have the same amount of insulation and are much thinner allowing for a great grip.

good glove all around. lacking impact protection. seems to not be enough for abrasion resistance also. however, it is good for semi-cold weather, but probably not any temps under 40F. it is also water proof. the gloves are good for what I wanted, cold weather & water proof. thanks Revzilla!

These are a decent chilly weather glove. They are very comfortable and fit well. I wouldnt want to ride more than 20 miles in though in 45 degree weather. If you are wanting something for long distance cold weather riding, I'd look at something else.

Know what you're getting!
Ok, I opened the package and really like the gloves. The outer is all leather and the palm is a suede type of leather. The embroidery and logos are nice. Not over done in my opinion. The gloves fit about 1/2 size to 1 size too large. I fit right into the size large on the chart, but I ordered a medium. The gloves fit well over my leather/ textile Rev'It Ignition 2 Jacket. I like that you can cinch them up on the gauntlet and near the wrist. There is enough room for me to fit a pair of Smartwool Liner gloves inside which adds about 10degrees F or so of temperature range on these. I live in Minnesota, so I'm used to cold and these gloves will take me into the mid 30s without liners and mid 20s with merino wool liners. These gloves do not have armor! I was surprised since most motorcycle gloves should have armor in my opinion. I should have read the description better, but these will work since I need a pair of cold weather gloves this season. To be honest, these are just like a pair of mountaineering gloves yo might find at REI. The only specialty feature directly for motorcycling is the visor wipe (which is very useful) and the fact that they're made by a motorcycle company. These gloves are good, just know what you're getting and you won't be disappointed.
