Firstgear Navigator Gloves
Great basic riding gloves
Very comfortable and nice range of motion. I will admit the water wiper in the left thumb is rather useless. There is not too much protection on there, but they are decent for colder weather. They grip very well, never had any slips, even in the rain. For the price, I think they are excellent.

Not for winter!
Globes are fine for mid temperatures but not winter!.. when you are near the 40º F you will feel the could on your hands even with heated grips.
I did not try them in wet conditions, but I thinks they will work under a light rain.
Not too bulky construction.

These gloves have some decent features (gauntlet extensions, visor wiper, zipper and Velcro cuff closure, gel pads on the palm) but that they aren't too bulky and don't cost $150. Many of the more armored gloves that I have tried are big bucks and have significantly reduced dexterity. On the flip side, I wouldn't expect these gloves to offer a whole lot of protection in the event that hand meets gravel. I would like to see some additional scuff resistant material (plastic or even some thicker leather) over the knuckles. The gauntlets are nice for keeping wind from blowing up your sleeves, however. These gloves are a good choice if dexterity and feature set is your priority over ham-handed armor.

This is not a WATERPROOF glove.
I bought these just before a 3700-mile ride in Alaska this summer, looking for a moderate temperature glove that was waterproof. These gloves were favorably reviewed by Motorcycle Consumer News, a magazine I trust. The gloves started off well -- comfortable, adequate for low to mid-fifties temperatures, and resistant to short bouts of rain. However, on our first day of steady rain (about 7 hours) they totally soaked through, I wrung about a quarter cup of water out of each of them. Also, the gel pad on the left glove below my ring and little fingers rolled up inside its pocket and made a very uncomfortable lump. In summary, inexpensive gloves not suited to serious conditions.

I really like these gloves and they are totally waterproof. The only thing is the end of the gloves flare out as though you have a bulky jacket on. I have a rain jacket that tapers at the wrists. The gloves flare out past that. Very good value though.

Overall good glove.
I bought these gloves to get me from early March to early summer in New England. I needed something windproof and waterproof. These gloves definitely fit that requirement.
I realize that these gloves are not made for winter riding and temperatures in the 30s and low 40s are not fun although silk glove liners make a huge difference with heated grips on high. I rode one day with temps in the low 40s when it began to sleet and eventually rain hard. My hands were completely dry when I got home.
Ideal temperature for these gloves is 50-75. I'll use them this summer only if it's cool or when it rains.
Overall they are comfortable and well made. Hard to beat the price for decent waterproof gloves.

Nice cold weather glove
I've been using this glove for 2 weeks and it's great. It keeps my hands and fingers warm. I've used it in the 35 degree to 60 degree weather. It's a nice glove for the price.
