    Decent Glove

    My cold weather riding is a short-ish runs in 30-50 degree weather. I have a 15 minute ride to work and in the 30 degree weather my fingers are still cold, not as cold as they used to be but cold. I can’t see these gloves holding up on a long 30 degree ride. In the 40-50 degree weather they are great and hold up pretty well on longer rides (longest so far was ~hour in 42 degree weather). My one major problem is the liner. It’s terrible; it takes 2 or three removing and replacing of the glove just to get my fingers in there right. It doesn’t seem to be attached to the glove well. Also go with a size smaller than you think, they run large!

    Good to the 30's

    These gloves are good down into the 30F range, but below that, you'll need a pair of glove liners. With liners, these are good to the teens. I use 'em every year for the Chicago Toys for Tots ride (first week of December). Waterproofing is good, and the leather is *very* nice. Good flexibility, and the gauntlet is big enough to fit over jacket sleeves.

    Great Economical Winter Glove

    Overall a great glove. Like the size, weight, and warmth. Good quality leather with a warm interior linear. Windproof, I've have worn in 20-25F in comfort. Palm and fingers could use a little more padding to aid in long rides.

    4100 WeatherKing Extra II Glove

    Excellent protection. Looks like I finally found a set of gloves good to about 40 (with windchill about 25-30 F). A bit bulky but very comfortable. I’ve tried countless other gloves for cold weather before finding and liking these. Highly recommended.

    Good purchase

    I've been using these as my cold weather gloves for the last three years, and I've been impressed. For normal cool all the way down to freezing, these gloves keep my hands warm for hours at highway speeds. The only time I've really lost heat in my fingers was around 17 degrees, on a four hour ride, but that's asking a bit much of any insulated product. The sleeve cover is easy to operate, even with the thick gauntlet on your fingers, and seals well against your jacket preventing leakage. The fill does break down over time, but I'm buying another set. Can't beat these gloves! Oh yeah, the ribbing on the back of the hands makes an excellent face mask squeegee for rainy weather.

    Warm gloves but too little feel

    These gloves have kept me warm so far--but I've only had them on when riding into the low 30's. They are reasonably good in the rain, where the leather does get wet, but my hands stay pretty dry. If there is a drawback to these gloves it is that the heavy padding really reduces my ability to feel my clutch, causing some “interesting” launches away from stoplights. I'd absolutely love these if they reduced the padding on the palm/palm side fingers, just leaving the heavy stuff on the back where it's really needed, but all in all, I'm happy with them so far.

    needs work to justify the cost benefit

    Some of the reviews made me feel optimistic about the warmth for the duration of their 30-40 minute ride so I decided to try them. Like: The finish/look and the extended length up the arm. Dislike: The inconsistent finger length (index finger is ¾” longer than necessary) as well as a tight wrist area (ordered X-Large) My fingers (as well as my wrist) still get chilled at 40-50 degrees Glove is best for riders where the hands have some protect from the wind (cruisers expect chilled fingers).

    Nice gloves

    The fit is a little big, so be ready to get a size smaller than you're used to. The gloves are a little bulky, as to be expected for winter gloves, but not so bulky as to make operating the handlebar controls any more difficult. These gloves are very warm and really comfortable. I haven't warn them in wet weather yet, so I can't speak to their waterproof abilities.

    4100 WeatherKing Extra II Glove

    These gloves are warm to about 20 degrees on an unfaired bike after 1 hour at highway speeds and local traffic......after that your fingers will get cold....period. How cold is comfortable to you depends on you, not the glove. Below 20, get heated grips, a fairing or heated gloves....your fingers cannot generate enough heat to keep themselves warm, no matter how insulated.

    Great cold weather gloves

    I've tried other brands and keep coming back to Olympia. They discontinued a glove I'd used for years but this one seems to work well in cold weather. Below 20F I tend to also need a light glove I put on first, but above 20 F they work well in conjunction with the heated grips on the bike.

    Not my glove

    I'm very disapointed in this glove. Here are the issues I encountered: 1. Bulky but not very warm at 40 F my fingers are cold on my ST1100. Unlined gloves are fine down to 50 F not as warm as I expected. 2. Quite bulky - I have difficulty with cluch because much of bulk is in the plam, a wate on a motorcycle glove. 3. Liner pulls out if your hands are moist. This is not an accpptable glove. I bought because I have liked other Olympia gloves.
