Joe Rocket Nitrogen Gloves
Great Winter Glove
I bought this product after looking into a few different cold weather gloves. My reason for choosing this glove was mainly the price and the fact that my summer gloves are also the Joe Rocket brand and I am very happy with them.
I've only had the opportunity to truly test these gloves about three times due to recent weather and they work well for me. They don't allow the cold air in and my fingers stay warm. They do affect the dexterity that you have with your fingers, so operating controls may feel clumsy until you get used to them, but that is a problem I fully expected with a cold weather glove. I like the way that the gauntlet portion is adjustable. It allows you to wear it under or over your jacket.
At this price point, I would definitely recommend this glove!

Great gloves after they break in
There's a bit of a break-in period, but after 5 or 6 rides they feel comfortable and warm. I've gotten some cooler rides in (mid 40's with high humidity) and they perform acceptably. I don't have any hand guards on my bars so they just get straight wind. No complaints.

Good quality for price.
Makes a great fit for your hand as size is spot on. Super warm, I haven't felt the need for anything warmer riding in 40ºF weather.
It doesn't come very far back on the wrist so you may need something that can cover the glove to prevent wind or water running up your sleeves.

Great winter / cold weather glove with no fancy heating, but still warm.
The Joe Rocket Nitrogen motorcycle gloves fit great and still offer fairly good dexterity for insulated gloves. These fit exactly what i was looking for. I needed something to keep my fingers warm and wrist warm without fancy batteries or power of any kind to warm my hands. The Nitrogen gloves have thinsulate from finger tip all the way back to the end of the gauntlet. The needed a little break-in but now are perfect!

This was just what we needed.
My wife and I each bought a pair for riding our Spyders in cold Florida weather. That means nothing below 40 degrees. In the one instance it did fall below forty her pair was not enough to keep her warm as she rides and unfaired RS. Mine were fine on a faired, heated grip RT at 37 degrees, but that was at their limit. Like everyone says, the gauntlets are a bit short, but usable. They are a three step process to remove, two straps and liner hold at the finger tips, two steps to put on. They are a bit tight and bulky, but a decent 35 -55 degree glove. They are keepers, decent quality and do the job.

I was looking for a cool/cold weather glove for those early spring/late fall rides. Wanted something with a gauntlet to keep the air from up my sleeves and decent styling to boot. These seemed to fit the bill. Picked them up about a week before a weekend trip to surprise my sister. Just about 500 mi each way and only had the weekend. Late October, and a chance of storm late if I didn't get home in time.
Storm hit early, and temp dropped from 68 to 38 within an hour of starting home. Steady rain completely soaked though the gloves. My hands were frozen. I had to stop every 45 min to try and get some feeling back in my hands since it wasn't safe to ride like that. 7ish hour ride turned into 13 hours of a ride from h#ll (the rest of my gear all failed too )My hands were black from the leather dye and from being soaked for so long. Took days for the dye to wear off my hands.
Since the "waterproofing" is a liner, its separate from the glove. So the liner shifts back and forth whenever you move your hand. Not the greatest thing when you need dexterity #like shifting or braking#
They'd be decent if they didn't have the worthless waterproof liner moving all around. Ok warmth #high 30's probably lowest, even then they're not very warm# And that's with a very warm core via heated gear. Ill definitely look else where for a cold weather, even remotely water resistant, glove.

Nice cold weather gloves
I have taken these out a couple of times and I can tell you that they are very comfortable and very warm! I get a good grip with them and once they are on do not even really notice them as they fit well and are lightweight.

Great, but cold
In Houston TX, the weather rarely drops below the 45-50. That said, these gloves have held up fairly well at highway speeds. The extra lining makes handling a little different and my fingertips felt a little cold (read: freezing) at "65" mph, but my bike control never wavered. They're extremely comfortable and work as well as they can, given that they're not heated. I'd recommend them to anyone in the southern States, or where ever it doesn't snow.
