First of all, these are the most comfortable gloves I have ever owned for a motorcycle. I have complete control while these gloves are on, great flexibility and soft. I had other gloves that in the high 30's my fingers would start going numb and then my fiancé bought me these as a gift and I do ride in 35° weather them and my hands are warm, hot now but comfortable. The reviews that say don't ride them below 50 or whatever must never have actually ridden below 50 with them on because I have and they are great.
Great gloves, better price

I bought these gloves for my step-dad for christmas. He was extremely pleased with the length and fit of the gauntlet, the maneuverability and protection, the only thing was they didn't have any reflection, but well you have a heckuva lot of other places to put reflection if you need it. They slick away moisture no problem, are all around just a great pair of gloves for the cold. And for the price in comparison to some of the top of the line gloves... u really can't go wrong with these.

I read a lot of recommendations about winter gloves - what to have, what not to have.
I've found these gloves to be all they claim to be & then some. Warm, durable, flexible - in short, really good gloves.
I'd suggest anyone who's never bought gloves & doesn't know what to do to get these. They’re really great.
I've suggested 2 of my sons to get a pair of them, too

These are great for casual riding in moderate to cool temperatures. Not made for really cold or warm weather.
Almost warm enough!

These gloves are good. They have the most Thinsulate of any gloves I could fine. And they do a pretty good job of keeping my hands from freezing in this high 30s, low 40s weather we've been having in the Pacific Northwest. I wish the gauntlets were a little bit longer but they do stay above my jacket sleeve so that's really long enough. And I do wish they kept my hands even warmer than they do. I do tend to get cold easily so maybe they are perfect for most people. I think these are perfect for high 40s, low 50s, about 10 degrees warmer than I have been riding in.

These gloves are great for cold weather riding--I've ridden down to the high 30's and haven't had any cold finger problems. Just wish they were made a little bigger in the XL size to allow a thicker liner.

I read a couple of other reviews on these gloves and bought a size smaller than I normally take. I bought them in Medium size and they fit great! I've used them in 30* temps and they did an excellent job of keeping my hands comfortable and warm. They seem to be made of excellent materials and kept any rain from penetrating through the outer leather layer. The only downside I can think of is that they are a little bulky and dexterity isn't that great. I give them 4 out of 5 stars!
For the price...

I have been using these for the past year in harsh weather, and have been pretty satisfied with them. My biggest complaints would be the tendency to get damp easily, and their inability to provide wind protection. I ride some mornings in 30 degree weather, and moving 60-75 mph, the wind chill is insane! I know I have sort of high expectations out of cheaper gloves, but just a fair warning to anyone looking for a glove that holds up well in rain or wind: this isn't your best bet. For the cost, it's a good colder weather glove, far better than a summer glove, but not very well suited to extreme cold or wet weather.

The gloves fit true to size. I've used them on 70 mile rides in 50 degree temperature. Gloves were toasty. Can't wait for real winter when I can test their warmth in 30 degree weather. I've had them for only a month, so I can't attest to their durability, but construction seems high quality.

I was looking for a glove that would get me to work in 35 degree weather without getting frostbite. Saw the reviews on this glove and thought it would do the trick. It does...but that's the good news. The bad news is that these gloves are sized way out of the park! I have big hands and after reading the reviews as to they were too big for the size ordered, I went down from my usual Large to Medium. Guess what...? They're still too large! I believe I would do well with a small! Outside of that, the gloves work great! Keep my hands toasty all the way to work. If they only fit!
