Glad to have these gloves before it gets cold... I'm ready for what this winter will bring... Look forward to several years of cycling use during the colder months... they appear to be of good quality and first impressions usually prevail... thanks for getting them delivered before I need them... now I'm ready for the cold months...
I'd bought a pair of these gloves as part of obtaining winter gear. It was 29° the first day I opted to use them and couldn't make it a mile before I returned home and picked up my regular winter gloves.
They did breathe and my finger tips were frozen.
That said, now using them for rides of warmer temps with no issue.
I measured my hand in accordance with Aerotech's instructions and got a glove that fits perfectly. You might even say this glove fits "like a glove." Extra points to Aerotech for measuring guidelines and correspondingly accurate fit.
I have only used them twice so far, but my initial impression was "this is exactly what I was looking for." I ride a drop bar road bike and sometimes find it surprising how minimal my hand coverage needs to be to stay warm. I could "feel" the chill of the 20 degree air on both mornings that I rode with these, but my hands remained warm for the entire 23-mile ride. I imagine these would be good down to 10 degrees without any problem, maybe even further. For winter-wearing, I quite like that the wrist strap comes back a bit further, so I can easily pull my elastic jacket sleeve over it.
The grippiness is sufficient. It's an improvement over the previous glove I had been using. Who knows how durable these will ultimately be, but the construction seems solid. Lastly, the red gloves are a true cherry red, if that is important to you. It's the kind of red I would expect if someone called it "red"; none of that orange-ish red b.s. I stumble across from time to time.
Windproof is great. I have used them on rides down to mid 30's. My fingers were never cold. Padding was just enough. I bought the XL but if I were to do it again I would get L. I Like the longer cuffs.
These are good gloves. They do well in the rain to keep body heat in and water out.
The velcro section is wide, so you don't have to worry about it coming apart.
The outer fabric is soft, so you can wipe your nose on the entire surface (not just a small terry section).
I hit mine with Dry Guy waterproof spray every couple weeks and the gloves can take about 2 hours in a light rain
before its time to swap to a dry pair.
I certainly like the warmth, but the gloves are a bit bulky and the velcro closures are too wide for my liking.
I use these gloves for cycling, they're good for temp. from 40-60 deg f
Living in the Midwest riding year round can be a challenge, but this glove has made it easier. I have used it in temperatures just below freezing and stayed comfortable the entire ride. The cuff of the glove is long which keeps the cold air off your wrist.
Though I ride in Florida we can have some cold mornings. As a rather serious road cyclist I need a glove that grips well for shifting and riding safely in a paceline AND that keeps me warm. In the low 40 degrees with wind chill into the 30s these keep me warm. I also like the large velcro wrist wraps that can be snugged tight to keep the wind out. All in all I am very pleased with this product. I have worn and washed them a few times and they seem to hold up well, so far. Finally I like the red color and reasonable price.
I cannot tell a lie: I ordered these to push my purchase over $100, and because I had lost one of the $50 gloves that I purchased a year or two ago.
These are way better, Better coverage (long length over jacket), much better price, and warmth is OK down to about 40-45F. After that I break out the LL Bean cold-weather gloves with slots for chemical hand warmers. FWIW, I live in a Chicago suburb and ride in temperatures down to about 20F.
I really like them, and they're a deal for this price.
I purchased these gloves and they are not good for Wisconsin weather. I will be looking for something better here because I have had good experience with other products
very comfortable and protects against the wind and cold
