I am a cyclist that wants to ride in the early Months when it is still fairly cold.These gloves are great in cold weather. I just finished a 30 mile ride in 40 degree weather and they kept my hands as warm as I could expect; considering the wind chill at 35 MPH is around Zero.

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.

I have very large hands for a woman, and my husband is a big man. We are both wearing large and they are plenty roomy. I would get a medium depending on how young he is.

These run REALLY small. I am normally snug in a medium and swimming in a large. The LARGE size are VERY snug and short fingered on me. Choose at least a size larger than he would normally use and if they are a bit large, suggest using them with thin glove liners, which would make these an awesome pair of gloves anyway. I should have gone with extra large for my "average" adult male hands.

I thought the sizing was accurate, measure the circumference of your hand like they tell you.|If you're trying to surprise him with a gift, I personally would rather ask him for his hand measurement and therefore give a little hint of a gift, than instead getting the wrong size and have to return them. |These are great gloves!
