I've owned several Giordana items before, some of which were outstanding and lasted forever. Unfortunately, these glove aren't one of them. First the fit- They are very lightweight and have a nice snug fit except that the pinky finger is about 1/2 an inch to long which I've never seen in a glover before. Second the protection- only used once in about 55 degree weather and my hands actually were cold after only a few miles of riding. Third the quality- After my one and only ride the palm has a 1/2 inch tear in the palm seam after a small road ride. Overall, these gloves fail at everything and wouldn't recommend at all.
I like these a lot - very comfortable. Pretty good protection against the cold...I've used them in sub 50 degree F weather...and they work...not sure if they would stand sub 40F degree weather. But very comfortable and easy to pull on.
