I bought these gloves looking to take my riding season deeper into the winter. Unfortunately these gloves weren't quite as warm as I had hoped, but that's not to say they aren't great gloves! They take me about as deep into the cold as my previous gloves did, but with MUCH better protection. I will ride with these gloves down to sub-40*F weather, but will be painful and numb after my half hour commute at 35*F. The quality of this glove is excellent and it provides MUCH better protection than my previous cold weather gloves.
The only downside is that with a tight-fitting sleeve you need to make a decision about the inner "gauntlet". It's cumbersome to try to put underneath a sleeve that zippers open but still has cloth - you need to either wedge it up under your sleeve, or in my case I've decided to just pull it up over my sleeve once it's zipped down. If it were raining and I wanted the full confidence of the waterproof glove I would probably take the extra time to wear the glove "right" and it doesn't decrease the comfort of the glove.
Sizing - I wear a Large Cortech Adrenaline (which fits snugly) and the Large Jet Road is a little on the loose side. I've tried on the A*'s tech heated glove in medium and can say that that is a little TOO snug on me for all-day comfort, and knowing that Cortech runs a little small I'd say these gloves run pretty true to size.
