I've been searching for the ideal winter glove. For as much cycle commuting I do in winter I decided I would pay the premium price on this model to give it a try. So far so good. It works great for me with temperatures in the 30's and 40's. 50's are too warm for this glove (hands sweat). I'm anxious to see how they do in the 20's. I have naturally cold hands, so they sometimes remain a bit cold in the glove, but never to the degree of impaired dexterity like I experience in other winter gloves. They also did well in light rain-haven't tried yet in heavy rain. They are medium thick-I can operate brakes and gear shifting just fine, but it is a challenge operating the key pad on my garage door. The other cycling specific features are nice, like padding, grip, and reflective section. I am normally between size L and XL, and these XL fit me nicely.
