Well made but small and lacks warmth

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

There are two themes consistently shared in the reviews and I agree with both. The gloves are pretty snug -- I've never had a pair of large gloves fit so snugly -- so I'd definitely go a size up if you buy these. Second, despite the wind stopper barrier, reasonable insulation and the last two fingers sharing a space, they just don't keep my hands warm. I've used these on my commutes for the last two weeks and if the weather is 40 or below, my hands get cold. I've had better luck with much lighter gloves in similar weather. The are comfortable and dextrous -- good riding gloves and I want to wear them - but 40+ degree weather is not where I expected to use these gloves and I have much lighter options for such temperatures.

Not recommended

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs small

Sadly, I will have to agree with the other reviewers. I wanted to take a chance on these, but the gloves were a disappointment. While they look great, aesthetics and craftsmanship are where my positive comments end. My hands were, uncomfortably, cold in 40-something F weather.

I cannot add anything to this review that has not previously been stated. Save yourself the trouble (and a few dollars) by purchasing another pair of gloves.

Expected so much more from these, especially considering the pinky/ring finger combo. Gives the impression that they are for cold weather. I wouldn't use these on the road below 42(F). The back of the glove has Windstopper, but if you blow between the fingers you'll see that the sides of the fingers let's the cold breeze right through. I still like the feel and construction though, and make a good cool weather mountain bike glove. Generous terry cloth area for whiping the snot away.

As much as I like Gore apparel (love my Gore Fusion gloves for extreme temps) there are just too many better winter road glove offerings for the price.

Like most, I had to one size up



    I've had these gloves about a month now and I love them. The first major ride I took in them was an 86 mile, 25 degree hill climb two weeks ago. They not only kept me warm, but they were comfortable to boot! Like everyone else has said, buy them a size big. I normally wear mediums, bought large, and they fit, well, like a glove.

    Cold day perfection

      Nice. They run a bit small, but the construction is well done. Lovely gloves for those real, real cold days. Sub 30, wind from the west. No worries. These gloves rock the cold. In fact not sure it could be cold enough that they won't keep your fingers warm. I like the 4 finger set up. Better by far than the lobster 3 finger option.

      Great Glove

        Great quality, comfort and feel. This gloves doesn't cause your hands to over heat and they are laden with reflective features that are so very important to any low light and evening riding. The gel pads are simply priceless. I love the idea of making one compartment for the ring and pinky fingers (awesome). I would not hesitate to buy a pair of these gloves if I were you.

        Made winter commuting hurt less

          This winter was phenomenally cold, and my hands (particularly my pinkie fingers) were starting to get numb and painful before I got to work. These gloves kept my hands warm all the way down to sub-zero Fahrenheit temps, but still let you retain pretty good dexterity. With a liner, you'd be fine to probably -20 or so.

          Not for hard core MTB who wants tactical control

            The gloves did a fair job in keeping my fingers warm at 35 to 45 degrees. The problem with these is that they have an inner liner that is attached but causes your fingers to shift about a 1/2 an inch within the glove while the outer part grips the handlebar. Therefore causing a false sense of control. SO if you are a hard mountain biker that likes control, then this is not your option.
