More effective than expected

Reviewed by hmsii from Chicago on Friday, November 01, 2013
I was disappointed when I unpacked these gloves because they felt like stiff gardening gloves and fit like gardening gloves. However, I paired them with thin merino wool liners (NOT INCLUDED - not sure what "inserts" in the product description means, because there aren't any separate liners) and hit the road at 37 degrees Fahrenheit. 25 miles later (and, to be fair, sunrise and temps rising into the 40s), I still had warm fingers. I haven't tested the waterproofness, but they are impressively windproof and I could still operate my hand brakes while wearing them. I have a twist shifter on my handle bars, so I'm not sure these gloves would be a good choice for someone with trigger or lever style shifters (they are stiff).
