I live in the East SF Bay Area and I love the winter night rides through the Pinole Valley. It is common for the windchill to be near freezing. So I like to have 3 pairs of gloves in layers. Inner layer = full finger acrylic; middle layer = full finger 2X gel, and outer layer = these gloves. They are nicely stretchy with a "thermal weave", like a very thick spandex, so they fit over the other gloves and yet maintain a wind barrier. I bought them 2 sizes too big so they actually fit over the other 2 layers. These gloves are perfect as an outer layer for winter rides!
No comparison to the old ones, already coming apart after only a few hundred miles (daily commuting, nothing too extreme), had to repair, my old ones lasted years before they needed to be replaced. Supposed to be unisex but the finger tips are pointed (like they're designed for long nails) as opposed to flat like the old ones and always leave a space at the tip. If you had the old ones, be prepared for disappointment
This is a great lightweight glove. Comfortable down to the low 40s (F). The only issue I have is that the touch-screen compatibility is not great. Overall is nice piece of kit.
