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
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.Read more ›
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!
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.
At $20 for the X-L these are a steal. I got the 2010 version, which has a sewn in liner with the problem of going inside-out that others have discussed. This was fixed in the 2011 version.
These gloves are sized small. I'm usually a large in mountain hardware/smart wool gloves. At X-L these just about fit without any room to spare. Unfortunately this makes it difficult to wear a liner comfortably. I should have gotten XX-L.
On their own, they keep my hands warm to about 32 degrees which is not much greater than my wool gloves. In addition, my hands sweat like crazy in these.
I have tried wearing a liner with them into the low/mid 20s, which helps. But my finger tips become ice blocks near the end of my commute (1.5 miles).
Overall, I'm disappointed in the ability of these gloves to keep my hands warm and will keep searching.
I've changed my mind about these. I've found that coupled with a pair of large Smartwool Liner gloves, they work really well. So far this winter, I've kept warm into the teens. I haven't yet tried them out in rain though.

I LOVE THESE GLOVES. Until I lost them about a year or two ago. I needed something to keep my hands warm when I do my winter biking and these worked amazingly. Read morePublished 28 days ago by S. Lu
A little small but good, I just ordered another pair after a couple of winters of use 1 size larger. These are still fine, but have been appropriated by my kids.Published 2 months ago by Anonymous
Perfect for keeping your hands warm on cold rides. The replaceable inner liner was a little snug, so I took it out and even with just the shells they are perfect and warm. Read morePublished 3 months ago by kelcey noble

Great gloves. My hands do get cold below 25 degrees after 20 minutes or so. Warmest gloves by far that I've worn riding.Published 4 months ago by Adam Souza Bosch
