These gloves are made with sturdy medium weight material that's good for temps from the mid 50's to low 70's. Any colder or hotter, you'll need a different glove. They fit true to size (I wear medium across all glove brands), and are snug without feeling tight. Palm material offers nice grip on your bars, too. As for color, the orange really pops out, this is great for low-light conditions where you want to make yourself as visible as possible.
