Firstgear Fargo Gloves
Fit- runs a bit large
Quality-Leather is nice, liner tends to pull out when you take them off. Liner material doesn't have a great feel.
Waterproof - works good at blocking water out but moisture will build up inside after an hour or so.
Overall- good value for the price.
I try and buy gortex for my waterproof gear but Firstgear does a good job for the money with their hypertex products.

Comfortable glove, gauntlets are nice
Haven't tested the waterproofing but they are suitable for me in temperatures 60-80 degrees. Sizing chart was dead accurate.

Bottom finger area where they meet glove body is tight
The fingers are a bit short, and the area where they meet the glove body is tight. After a 30 or so minute ride, that area starts to bother my hands. I bought a size medium which is my normal size for gloves. Gloves fit good everywhere else. Maybe over time they will stretch some.

This is simply the best glove I've ever owned.
They keep water out keep heat in. I have worn them in temperatures down to 35°F and been plenty warm. Amazingly they aren't bulky.
Really good value for the money
They are pretty true to size.

Overall, well worth the money
I have worn these a couple of times here in the Midwest for some early spring riding and have been happy overall. With liners, I've ridden at highway speeds down to 33F and have been comfortable. Anything over 50F and I don't need the liners. Haven't gotten them wet so I can't attest to that aspect. The finger tips are a little long and can be clumsy with the switches until you get used to them. Overall, I'm happy with the 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.
