Firstgear Fargo Gloves
High quality, great product, cold be a bit warmer at highway speeds.
Like every product from FirstGear, quality is top notch. The leather is soft and smooth, the fit is spot on, and the features are well thought out.
These gloves are surprisingly thin and easy to wear for the protection they provide. Nice protection down to 45 degrees at normal cruise speeds, but they will let your fingers get cold at 80mph and above in temps below 45.
I use silk liners with these gloves for longer trips in the cold.

Exactly what I was looking for!
The fit is just like measured and the quality is what I was expecting. My hands get cold easy and they are good down to the low 40s. I would buy them again and we'll be looking into more of their products.

I bought these primarily to replace my older winter gloves (Southern winter) and to have when needing rainproof. Gloves seemed to fit very big for me compared to other gloves I own. Also not as insulated as i hoped for but do cut out the wind so i can ride in the 40's without getting too cold. Probably work well in the rain but have not yet tested that. If you are primarily looking for warmth, look at other models or get another size up and wear these as a 2nd layer covering.

Finally, a winter glove that doesn't feel like a mitten...
If you are crazy enough to ride in the winter (I am), because you live in a terrible part of the country (I do), then this is the glove for you. So far, I've tested this down to 40 degrees (with heated grips). The wind stays out and, although the glove feels thin, the insulation does a great job of keeping your hands warm and dry. Highly recommend.

Great warm gloves.
Rode in 40 degree temp when it arrived. With the wind making it colder, it kept my hands tolerable for 30 min. Next time wore silk liners I had for skiing. That did the trick since I don't have heated grips on my bike, though that would keep my fingers very warm if worn with these gloves. Overall for the price and not actually a heated glove, you can't go wrong. Just a tad bit large, but with the liner, fit was just right.

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.
