Evannnwrote a review of Pearl Izumi P.R.O. AmFib Gloves on January 25, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I needed something to keep my hands warm while riding and running in Maine through the winter, and I am very happy with my purchase. In my opinion, they are thicker and bulkier than they appear in the images. While this 'bulkiness' slightly hinders dexterity, I am still able to shift and break with minimal limitations. If I were a more serious 'picky' rider, this may be an issue, but when it's 20°, I'm more concerned with warmth than the smoothest shifting. While I tend to 'run warmer' than most people, I find these extremely warm: so warm that my hands can become sweaty even in the coldest of conditions. So far, the coldest I've had them is 10° with a windchill while riding along the ocean - warm hands and no breeze coming through. These gloves also cover a few inches of my forearms keeping those areas nice and toasty. The reflective areas are convenient for darker riding, and the nose wipe is another great feature that I probably use far too often. I haven't had these out in the rain yet, and hope I never really have to, but I believe the fleece lining and DWR coated shell would keep me warm and dry. Also, you can't beat the sale price!
