Excellent gloves - they run large

Verified Buyer Reviewed by katekate from The Hague, Netherlands on Saturday, November 3, 2012
These gloves are great. We live in the Netherlands and bike year round. Until now we've had windproof fleece gloves and realized how critical the windproof part was, but they did get awfully wet, and my husband managed to totally trash his (grippy parts tore off the palms).

Ordered him a pair of these in size SMALL after reading other reviews. We figured it they were too small they'd fit me. He's got smallish hands for a man, but by no means teeny (he's 5'10" and slight to average). These fit perfectly. I (5'9", pretty average hands for a woman my size) would need an XS. The width of the size S gloves made them swim on me - definitely male proportioned.

That said, he figures they'll be great until the temp dips near to freezing, and then they wouldn't be warm enough. Windproof and dry gets you pretty far, but at a point you'd need to switch to snow gloves or order these a size larger and put some liners in these.

Also, these gloves are a lot more comfortable than they look. I expected them to be a be thicker or stiffer, but they're very flexible and nice to have on. A definite winner for our purposes.
