River Road Cheyenne Cold Weather Gloves
Warm, comfortable, waterproof. Awesome. Didn't breathe well. These can't be your only gloves. But as you cold weather gloves, nothing could be better.

Could be better
I used them twice a day for about a month. At 40* my fingers were cold but tolerable till about 32* @ a fluctuating 45-60 mph, my fingers were numb anything under 30* After a month one of the seems opened up about 2". These gloves are ALRIGHT for those who go out on chilly days once in a while. Anything colder or more frequent needs a better glove

Not bad for the money!
The overall glove is nice and probably one of the best in this price range, I have rode in 32degree weather a few times with these now....they keep warm up to about 20 minutes and then the cold sets in. As far as being waterproof they are great rode in the rain this morning and they worked well hands stayed dry! Overall comfortable only complaint would be they are kind o bulky making it at times hard to get to your controls.

Great warmth in the gold
I have these gloves for a week now. Used them when the temperature was in the low 40's to upper 30's and my hands stayed nice and warm. Using the size chart was right on.

Good glove for the money
After having the chance to try these out in a mid-40's rain shower on a recent ride, I can say that I am pleased with these gloves. They run a bit tight but overall I am pleased with their warmth and ability to shed water. I am sure that they will get soak eventually, but a constant 3 hour shower at 60 mph stood up to their waterproof claims.

Good winter gloves, if you're willing to sacrifice feel
I've gone through a winter of use with my Cheyennes. I bought mine in XL (I thought it sounded big, but they fit fine, and they've done a great job keeping my hands warm down to 20 degrees. They'd probably work fine in colder temps than that, but I quit riding.) The fit and finish has been fine, and the gauntlets fit fine over my jacket and form a great windproof seal.
My only complaint is that the weather protection comes at the expense of control feel. You have to recalibrate your sense of touch in order to feel your controls. It's not a deal breaker, but it does take getting used to. Such is the cost of riding in the cold, because these gloves definitely bring the warmth.

Great gloves, except for the finger tips
Weather: 34*F on the thermometer
Situation: riding city speeds, so about 35mph-50mph most of the way, short trip, maybe 20 miles.
The gloves fit great right out from the box, they're easy to strap closed over a leather jacket, the palms of them have a good grip so you're not slipping from the throttle, which also makes it a bit more difficult to just let go of the throttle. They're a bit thick, and fit snugly between my grips and levers, as you would expect from a winter glove.
My only problem with them was the fingertips. While my palms/back of my hands were warm, the very tips of my fingers were freezing. There is little of the insulation up front. That was the only downside for these gloves and the only reason that they didn't get 5/5 on "Protection"

Not winter gloves, but okay for cool weather.
I bought these gloves when I first began motorcycling again, and frankly I didn't know anything about winter gloves. These were inexpensive (around $40) and they fit, so I bought them. For $40, they're not bad. I would not consider them winter gloves. Everyone's tolerances to cold are different, but I can't wear these gloves below 40 degrees F for very long before my fingers get cold. There is no armor, just padding. The cuff needs a wider gusset for use over your jacket cuff.
Frankly, I'm not impressed with these gloves, and will soon be looking to upgrade to gloves with better armor/protection, and better insulation.
However... for $40, these gloves ain't bad.
