Got these today. Extremely comfortable. I wished I would have bought a pair of unlined ones when they were on sale to use around the house. Very nice quality.

I got mine yesterday, I had to wait a day because they shipped them as signature required! For $14 gloves, though I know that isn't the retail price.
I think they look great for the money, I might try them today, a ride at 5F would be a good test. I think the Kevlar areas would help in a crash, they are less bulky than the A*'s winter gloves I have.

I think my 30/30 rule will apply.

Anything around 30 degrees or below for 30 minutes and you're done for no matter what gloves.

It takes heated gloves/grips or handlebar muffs or both to break through the 30/30.

I look forward to your review. I got mine and they fit well but I wonder just how warm they will be. It's 17F here at the moment, so I don't think that I'll be riding today.

I rode in mine around 40 degrees the other day when I got them. Hands were nice and warm but it was a shorter ride.

My estimate I think they will be fine for around 30 degrees as long as it's under 30 minutes. Anything colder and I think it will be fine as long as it's a short ride.

Certainly well worth the money IMO.

Mine came in, they are decent, but IMO they do run small.
For what I paid, I'll just get another pair and re-gift these.

Did a short ride at 5F, kind of an extreme torture test (for the gloves, I'm OK with it). This type of weather is heated glove territory and I have them but wanted to test the new ones out. I was fine for 15 minutes, then my hands started to get chilled but not cold. I think that is about what one can expect, I could go to the store fine in these temps. Even in the 40's for riding all day the heated gloves are nice to have. But I think these could go all day in the 40's. Certainly a great value for the money.

What's odd is I have a pair of Med and Large and I normally wear a Large. The med's fit better. The Large seem tighter in the fingers. And I am skinny with normal sized fingers/hand.

I'll swap you a new pair of med for your large

Have you been able to watch any more college games yet? It's tough.

PM me your address if you want them and I will just send them to you as a Xmas present. I don't need them.

Yes, I am watching football today. Cheering for Auburn and Michigan State.

THANKS man.

Yeah. Hopefully Auburn wins, and jumps OH St. SEC has won last 7, won't be any credibility if no SEC team in. But the bottom line is money; fans of SEC teams pull for the SEC in any contest, unlike most other conferences. It's one of the final remnants of the Lost Cause. And it's a huge conference.

Donnie just hold on to em, we'll swap when we go to Barber
Sorry for hijacking.

I've got diabetes and neuropathy so for me that's about 50/50 and preferably 60/60. I have to factor in the wind chill also. I think these gloves will help me enjoy riding deeper into the cooler weather, though. I have also used Heatmax toastie-toes hand warmers in the palms of my gloves. They really feel good to me.

Roger, I put some quality handlebar muffs (Tucano Urbano) on mine and it's made all the difference in the world. I am thinking I can try about any temp/time requirement now. Only test they have had yet is one cold day around 35 degrees for about 30 minutes with UNlined gloves and my hands were not cold. They were when I pulled them out to adjust my visor but that was the only time. And I used the unlined on purpose to see.

Thanks, Donnie! I'll see how these do with what I have during my next cool ride. Gotta start getting stuff for Christmas for my girls now.

Which ones did you get? I looked on the website and there are several models.
