These gloves were windproof but felt like garden gloves. They were not comfortable like some other garden gloves and they did not have a good fit and finish. They did allow for wearing short fingered cycling gloves inside them. I could still use them but I'd rather get a better glove.

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).

Bought these gloves for 40 degree rainy day rides based on the Sierra Woman catalog description that they were waterproof glove inserts--they are neither. These are loose fitting shells that would fit over warm liners or over thin insulated gloves to provide an extra layer of wind resistance and some limited water resistance. In a shower test, water quickly leaked through the seams and soaked my fingers--not good for cold, rainy days on the bike.
