Rated4out of5byadrih234fromgreat as outer glovesMy hands are small (palm circumference 6.5" / wrist to tip of tallest finger 7"). I ordered size S, but although the palm fits, the fingers are too short to be called a perfect fit.
I wore these alone and they are great for about 30 minutes in the snow. With a thin woolen pair of gloves underneath you're warm for much much longer. On the bicycle they function fine in the snow and in freezing rain, and you can still feel the brakes and gear shifts, but try to handle your keys and that's another matter. They have a great cuff that cinches closed and keeps snow/rain from getting into your jacket.
Love the clip that holds them together and the strap for the wrist. This lets me use these as my primary "dog-walking" gloves- in case I must take the gloves off I don't lose them.
Alone I rate the gloves 3 stars, but together with a thin pair of woolen gloves (that I have) they are awesome and deserve the 4 stars.
