I use these for weekend rides of ~5 hours in temps from as low as 40 degrees F. to about 65F. They are well made items of rich-looking leather, and careful stitching and assembly. They are still breaking in after a few weekends, and are very comfortable with my hands on the bars. I tend to keep the first one or two fingers of each hand extended on levers, so the stiffness(so far) of these glove fingers is not a problem. The other fingers and thumb curl easily enough around the bars. The tips of my fingers get a little chilly after an hour or so at ~40degrees F.(on a naked bike with small windscreen, no hand protection) Silk glove liners help a bit. The gauntlets are large enough to slip easily over my jacket sleeve cuffs; I have observed that, lately,many gloves of this type are being designed with smaller gauntlets; perhaps to fit easier under the cuffs. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase, and would recommend these gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Yana Shiki brake lever was very easy to install, and looks good. The relatively flat surface that contacts the fingers is more comfortable to me than the more rounded one of the stock lever. One nit: the little adjustment dial seems a little too easy to bump out of its setting. All in all, a nice product. If the black w/red dial works for you (Y.S. doesn't offer color options like CRG does), you'll save a few bucks here.
Yes, I recommend this product.
