Very comfortable, but...
on September 27, 2012
These gloves are very comfortable, and fit well. The coldest weather I've had them out in, thus far, was 37 degrees F and about 90% relative humidity, and they performed decently under those conditions. This was only about a 2 mile ride to school, though. I can't imagine they would do as well for anything 5 miles + when it is that cold, but I don't think that's really their intended use.
The main drawback is that they don't have any velcro on the wrist to hold them in place. Since they have a close fit, I've dealt with this by wearing a pair of mesh gloves with velcro wrists over them. Doing this holds them in place just fine, but it covers the reflectors on the outside of the hand.
Overall, for the price, this shortcoming didn't dissuade me, and if money is any issue, it shouldn't be a deal-breaker. However, if you're willing to pay a bit more, I imagine you could get something that doesn't overlook this crucial feature in a cycling glove.
