I purchased the Activa Thermolite Glove Liners to wear during the "winter" season (I use the term winter loosely) where I live in Los Angeles, CA. It does get down to around 40 F or slightly below especially early morning.
I commute 50 mins to work and I found all my other gear adequate for the temperature (I have zip-out liners in the rest of my gear) but always found my hands to be numb/cold by the time I got to work.
These liners fit with no issue under my gloves (Teknic Xcelerators) and keep my hands far more comfortable and warm than the gloves alone. For the price I found it well worth the comfort level provided. Sure they are not heated gloves or anything like that. However, for my purposes they work extremely well.

I've been riding in these gloves for a few months now. Overall they are extremely comfortable. This was my first kangaroo palm glove and I must say it's far more comfortable than cow hide. It molds better to your skin and It doesn't bunch under your grip so you get far more tactile feedback. I have also enjoyed how the glove doesn't pull when you grip something due to the segmented panels on the fingers and on the dorsum of the hand - very inventive design.
The protection these gloves offer is stellar - plenty of hard parts, padding, and quality materials throughout and the Knox system on a glove at this price point is an added bonus.
Though the out-stitching is super comfortable it does increase the tendency for the stitching to fray over time from contact with the velcro closures. Also I've not a huge fan of the double cuff closure - it noticeably increases the time and effort it takes to don and remove the gloves. Other than this minor annoyance these really are an amazing pair of gloves.
