Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by Blueeyeddevil from Northern Virginia on Thursday, January 2, 2014Ok, first the pros:
Nice-looking (I got the lime green); durable; protective; waterproof (Gore-Tex XCR); decently dexterous; good fit (for my hand, anyway); quick break-in period; plenty of backhand padding for the occasional and largely unplanned outside-the-bar-room brawl.
Now, the cons: Surprisingly, not so warm (I cycle to/from work in these in the DC area, and my fingers feel the cold whenever temps are in the low 30s); under-the-cuff opening can be problematic/awkward with tight-sleeved jackets; no inner-wrist pull-tab.
These are okay gloves depending on the application. Cycling is a bit of a unique application, because the hands don't move much relative to, say, hiking and skiing, so blood tends to collect in the fingertips. And with cycling, an inner-wrist pull-tab would be apprectiated, since often times you need to use your teeth to tug on a glove. These gloves have an outside-wrist pull-tab, but it's largely inaccessible to your teeth. These are better suited for mountain biking than road riding, simply because one doesn't move as quickly (less wind-chill) and uses the upper body and arms more while mountain biking.
Bottom line: If you hike/ski/mountain bike, these will probably serve you quite well. If you road-bike in freezing or sub-freezing temps with wind, look elsewhere.
Reviewed by fableru from New York on Wednesday, December 25, 2013Can't say nothing but good words about those gloves, I got them for my husband and they just were too large , much longer in fingers then it should be I guess for my husband's palm. I sent them back sadly.
Reviewed by crtroutschool from Golden Colorado on Wednesday, December 11, 2013Great fit and true to size. Light weight super breathable performance and warm. It was -20 F yesterday and I was still warm
Reviewed by justabob from Illinois on Tuesday, December 10, 2013While these may suit others, I found them too bulky. They also were not warm enough on my first cold weather walk. Leather is rather stiff.

I purchased the lime green/black version in XL. They fit perfectly and are the warmest gloves I own. Great for those extended days on the slopes. rugged
and well made.
