I know this is long, but these gloves are aweful. I purchased these because I wanted something durable and they have full leather fingers. Initially I was pretty happy with them but as time has gone on, I like them less and less. My first week of using them was on my very short ~7 minute city commute in 30-50 degree weather. They seemed to work pretty well and keep my hands warm but it turns out that they are only good for a few minutes...also known as, they are not good.
-They seem fairly well made and I can feel the signaling controls ok.
-The outer leather/liner will rotate freely around your fingers/hand and the inner liner because of the hepora waterproof layer. I've had another glove that doesn't do this. This leads to everything sliding around in your hands. It's not horrible, but it's kind of bad.
-The thumb seems to be a longer proportion than the fingers and extra glove hangs off my thumb. I don't have a short thumb.
-There was one day when it was a little wet out and my slightly wet hands were difficult to get inside the gloves. It wasn't really raining much but they did seem to keep water out.
-The wipers on the thumb are a little small but they work ok and are on both gloves.
-The gauntlet is not very long and barely extends to cover my jacket sleeve.
Where I'm really disappointed and would just trash them if money weren't an issue, is that I just went on a 30 minute stroll around town; it's 48 degrees outside and the sun is still up and shining. A little after halfway through the ride my hands started getting pretty cold and by the time I got home, they were freezing. I'm so disappointed. I wish I would have discovered this before I wore them because now, of course, I can't return or exchange them.
No, I do not recommend this product.
