I got these in the fall for all round cold weather use. They are very warm for Maine winter riding (when the roads allow!) but are excellent for all other typical winter activities. I have used them in 0F blizzard conditions and they kept my hands warm. The cuffs seal up well and come way up the arm. I typically wear an XL and the size XL seems right on. There is room for a light liner as well though I have not needed to use those yet. These are as good as anything from Marmot, North Face, Patagonia, etc at half the price. (Posted on 2/3/15)
Warm, a big bulky at first, most likely better after breaking in. These are men's sized gloves, for fat palms. I used the sizing guide to order, and since I have women's thinner hands, the gloves are too big. I will definitely exchange for smaller size, they are comfy and keep the cold rain out well.

I've rode with these gloves for two winters now. They are 100% waterproof. They will keep my hands warm down to 32. Colder than that and my thumbs and fingertips can get painfully cold on the Interstate. But they are a tough protective waterproof glove with a generous gauntlet. Great for non-freezing wet/dry weather for sure. (Posted on 12/19/13)
So far, best winter gloves I've owned. My fingers still get cold and start to get numb in 30/40 degree weather, but they don't get painfully cold and numb! They are bulky, but the insulation/shell don't have a "sloppy" fit like other gloves I've had (where you loose throttle response when the shell doesn't move with the insulation). My only complaint is the wiper catches on my clutch lever housing often. Wish they would have put the wiper on the outside of the thumb where it wouldn't catch on anything. (Posted on 11/29/12)
Just rode to Alaska from Montana with these gloves. Hands cramped at first but gradually got used to them. Very warm and kept my hands dry. Only had low in the forties and rain near Whitehorse, Yukon so don't know if good any colder. Well made! Would recommend. (Posted on 7/5/12)
Took them out in drizzle today for 30 minutes. Waterproof? My hands were totally dry at the end of the ride. Warm? Yes. Finger squeegee is nice, build quality looks good. Gaunlets are long, but tucked easily inside my jacket.
Cons: bulky for sure, I felt a bit sketchy on the front brake as a result, just had to be extra careful. This may just be all heavily insulated cold weather gloves though.
Will they keep my hands warm & dry? Probably. But have to get used to the feel. (Posted on 4/1/12)
First, I have to say that this is the warmest motorcycle (or general purpose) glove I've ever owned. It's perfect for NYC winters, and it's half the price of an all-hide gauntlet. Leather is great but gore-tex is the way of the future for warm, weatherproof gear.
The glove fits a little snug... I am right between a S and an M and went with the small. Snug is warmer than loose, though, and a loose glove makes manipulating controls harder, so I made the right choice. As mentioned below, there is so much warm padding in this glove that it gets more flexible as you break it in. Nice curved fingers, abrasion reinforcement, and a squeegee make it clear that this is a motorcycle glove that happens to be very warm, not vice versa. (Posted on 1/20/12)
I bought these for "winters" in Las Vegas. Typically in the low 40s high 30s at night. It may be my tolerance (or lack of) to wind chill but I can still feel the cold air through the gloves and makes my hands pretty cold. I also went by the size chart and ordered a Large even though I ALWAYS wear an XL. Yep... the Large is a bit small for my fat palms, it restricts my hand movement, and they start to cramp up after a while. These issues are personal, but the glove itself is very well made and the inside liner is very cozy. (Posted on 1/18/12)
