I bought these to fill the gap in my commuting gear and for the occasional ride up the mountain without full leathers. These are NOT a summer overpant, but will perform well in Fall, Winter, and the early portion of Spring.
Great feature set. Comfortable with protection lining up nicely (with adjustment!) in the riding position. No slipping in seat. Very easy to get on and off and runs true to size.
Great value.
Have not used these in the rain, so no comment there.

I purchased these gloves on closeout, so my review will be biased toward being a better price-point than they are normally.
Overall, I am happy with the gloves. They fit similar to my Dainese summer gloves (size Small). Gloves are very comfortable, albeit quite stiff, but I assume this will change after many uses. The only issue I found is that my pinky binds on the interior of the right glove while putting them on. I hope this doesn't lead an interior rip and pre-mature failure of the interior lining.
Exterior is great with good design. A* hook+loop is excellent and the zipper performs well, although I would have preferred something a little easier to reach for an under-the-cuff application.
I have worn these gloves down to low 40s (F) with little to no issues on my 25 mile morning commute @ average of 65mph.
