I live in area with light mild winter temps and need a full-finger glove to give warmth and wind block. I have tendency to cold handfingers. And this Pearl Izumi glove does the job well for me - while giving enough dexterity for brakes shifters, the wind is fended off well, and temps in 30-40s become ok. Too early to tell about durability. Not as effective as comparably priced Gore Windstopper, so 4-star not 5-star... Otherwise perfectly acceptable!
OK, I didn't purchase these cycling gloves for use while riding my bike. I bought them for everyday use because previous Pearl Izumi cycling gloves proved to be AWESOME as everyday gloves. The benefits of these gloves are the conductive thumb and index finger for touch screens and grippy material on middle and index fingers. They allow for great dexterity, though I wish the grippy rubber was on both the index and thumbs to help with important tasks (specifically, opening dog waste bags). One goodbad characteristic is that they are very long, which is great I suppose if used for cycling, to be sure they left no bare skin on your wrist when you are extended on the hoods of handlebars. But just for wearing everyday, they're a bit long and quite challenging to put on.
They would be ok in freezing or below temps if you can put your hands in your pockets occasionally, but of course, this wouldn't be the case if used for cycling. The price was right from TBD, so I'm still glad I got them.
Nice gloves for a limited temperature range. Too hot past 40, too cold below 20. At least for the first 10 miles. Otherwise they work well. Good dexterity and the wrist is well protected with a closure that can fit under a heavy jacket or over a thin one. My advice is to take them off once you feel over-heated otherwise they will get drenched in sweat. If you ride in 10 or less look into barmitts.
