I live on the California coast near Santa Barbara and my commutes are usually 6 miles or less on fairly flat roads.

    My hands were warm in 30 degree weather.
    Amazon Customer
    They come with the outer shell that blocks wind and an inner liner that keeps the hands warm.

    The ring and pinky finger being wrapped together is actually very nice.

    First, I'll start off by saying that I'm living in west central Wisconsin, and I have been biking about 3 miles round-trip to class almost every day this winter. I will also preface this by saying that I may have Raynaud's disease, which causes lack of blood flow in the extremities in cold weather, so basically any gloves that I have worn in <20 degree F weather have not kept my hands warm. That being said these are definitely the best ones I've owned for biking. I also have a pair of leather gloves and a pair of wool gloves/mittens that have 40 gram thinsulate lining. In comparison to those, the Planet Bike gloves are not as warm when you aren't moving, but once I'm riding the wind resistance of the Planet Bike gloves keeps my hands noticeably warmer. Despite this the gloves are not as water resistant as I was hoping for. Its been raining the last few days and the palm of the glove gets pretty wet quickly.

    Here is a rough temperature breakdown of the gloves on my 1.5 mile rides
    <0 degrees F - My hands go numb and freeze
    0-15 degrees - hands still get really cold, just not as fast
    15-20 degrees - the gloves keep my hands warm enough for that ride, I can still feel them when I get to class.
    20-35 degrees - Gloves are perfect, my palms get a little sweaty but my fingers are warm enough
    up to 45 degrees - the gloves are a little too warm but still useable

    Pros:

    At a bit over $20 and free shipping with my Amazon Prime membership (or even with shipping) this is the best deal in winter cycling gloves. Finally, Amazon sells something for cycling that's got the quality we avid cyclists are looking for--and at a great price to boot.

    Excellent dexterity--no problem working all those little shift levers, buttons on electronics, tools, keys, or even ripping open a Clif Bar. I have no doubt I can do road/trail side repairs without taking my gloves off as I had with gloves I previously owned.

    FINALLY someone thought to put reflective piping on winter cycling gloves. It's bad enough nearly all winter cycling gear is black in color (like we want to be stealthy?) without forgetting to include those essential reflective materials on every item when they know we'll be riding in the dusk and dark with the shorter Winter days. Flashers on your bike just aren't enough to make you recognizable as a cyclist in the dark--you need to make the rider visible as well. I've noticed that when I signal with my hands while wearing these gloves, the response from drivers is far better than with my other--non-reflective--gloves. They even thought to put a reflective stripe on the forefinger (but not the middle-finger, hmmmm).

    While I would go with 'lobster' gloves for warmth, these 'half lobster' hands allow for greater use of those two essential digits without sacrificing the necessary amount of insulation. Plenty warm (actually hot in a New York autumn).

    The cuffs on these are the best I've seen. You can close them down right to the skin or over the cuffs of your jersey so they really lock out the cold. Most winter sports gloves come with knit cuffs that just don't cut it like these do.

    These gloves are awesome once you get them on. They're cozy and warm. The four finger thing makes perfect sense -- it keeps your two smallest fingers warm together without sacrificing any utility. I feel like a crazy crab-clawed guy when I'm wearing them too.

    But BE CAREFUL WHEN TAKING THEM OFF. There is a warm inner liner that is not attached to the outer shell. It's very easy to pull the fingers of the inner liner inside out. Once you've done this you can't put the gloves on until you straighten them out, which can be _extremely_ difficult. "How hard can it be to turn a glove the right way round? Trust me -- when there's a shell in the way, it gets tricky. I recommend chopsticks if you do find yourself in this bind. Last winter I left these on the shelf for about 6 weeks even though they would have been the perfect warm glove because I couldn't get them on!

    I read the review about them being too warm for a lot of situations and also the review that the inner glove can get easily turned inside out.

    When I first put these on I thought they were like gloves I had before, i.e. the inner glove was partially sewn into the outer glove, so inseparable. Took my hand out and tried to put them back on. No way that was going to happen, the inner liner was completely inside out and totally resistant to being put back in its proper place!

    Then I realized the inner glove and the outer glove are two separate pieces. Problem solved. When pulling off the glove, first pull of the outer section. Then pull off the inner glove. No problemo, they are simply two separable pieces.

    The weather a bit too warm for both sections? Then just put on the outer glove. On a very cold day, put them both on.

    Problems solved and for the money, I am a happy camper.

    As with other reviewers, in found the lobsterness is an asset, but I found the index and middle fingers tight in design, which was just enough to affect circulation in the gloves; when i would sweat, thing fingers would be both wet and with poor circulation and would get cold enough to affect my grip on the handlebars. A removable lining would be great, as they stand, they take a bit longer to dry. if you slip your gloves off in the cold to do some work, you end up putting them back into damp, confined 'sheaths'..the velco also has a tendency to bite and induce pilling on the synthetic, 'spandex' like material that makes up much of the glove (especially the spacing fabric between the 'male' and 'female' pads of velcro at the wrist). some integrated palm padding would be good; as is, it's just thicker material, and not actual padding.
