Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Cold ride this weekend, 35-40 degrees F. Started the ride with some other fingered bike gloves that were fairly heavily padded, bulky (making Di2 shifting a bit tricky), and most importantly, didn't keep my fingertips warm. One of my riding buddies was wearing these, and when we stopped at a shop on the ride, I picked up a pair. Much warmer, I think the windproofing really goes a long way. My fingers were warm the rest of the way, and if for some reason I got hot, they're very lightweight and would be easy to stash in a jersey pocket.

That said, they aren't thick, so I don't know how they'll do in subfreezing temps. Also, not padded, which is really not a concern for me, but should be noted. Lastly, the mitten cover is a bit slick -- I had no trouble holding the handlebars, and it's still easy to shift, but the fingers inside the glove will slide on the inside of the mitten, so be careful! Just takes a little more caution.

Overall, I'm very happy (after one ride) -- they seem durable and they'll be my go-to glove at this temp.
