Novara Stratos Bike Gloves - Men'sis rated3.9231out of5by13.
Rated4out of5byfromAlmost perfectI ride ~22 miles a day, commuting to and from work 5 days a week all year in SE MI, so I've used these in real snow, ice, even freezing rain. Gloves this warm are great things to have, I often have my hands sweat some while riding. I'm guessing these have a vapor barrier of some sort. Many types of gloves this warm are 2 part, with an inner liner that can be removed to help drying. That's pretty much the only fault of these gloves. They dry VERY slowly. If you're commuting and can air them out, I don't think it is too big of a deal.

Rated5out of5byfromFinally a warm pair of cycling gloves.Finally a pair of cycling gloves that can handle the extremes I like to ride in! My fingers were always the first to go. I finally have a pair of gloves that work for me. The also compress down and fit in my pack so I always have them just in case. The elastic draw cords cinch them closed around my wrists, but open easy to check my watch or GPS.

Rated4out of5byfromToasty warmThese gloves are great for chilly rides. After a while in single digit temps your fingers will still go numb, but short rides are much more enjoyable compared to other gloves I've tried. Reflective strips aide with visibility when signaling on dark winter evenings. Draw strings easily tighten/loosen above wrist. Length of glove easily overlaps jacket sleeves to provide full protection from the wind/temps.

Rated4out of5byfromSkeptical at first...but wow!Would have given these 5 stars if not for the "decorative" padding in the palms. These gloves are the best I have owned over the years, being worn in a full downpour for 1 1/2 hours and my hands remained dry, and not clammy. I also wore them in weather down to 15F degrees so far this year and they were warm and if only they made socks...ride safe!

Rated1out of5byfromnice but coldI thought this was going to be a nice glove, but just not warm enough for colorado winters. I commute everyday for work and when it got down to single digits these gloves were just not warm. I returned them to REI.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat in cold, not so much in rain ~This is a really good product, best cold weather glove I've ever used on a bike. After a necessary washing, the gloves lost some of their waterproof qualities, but they are still a 'best of class' for cold and slightly wet days on my bike.

Rated4out of5byfromgood warm gloves for the priceUsed for cycling in winter, only have ridden down to mid 30s so far but gloves are very warm. once the temperature goes up your hands will start to sweat. these globes ar also hard to wash as they will tend to keep water inside and take a while to dry afterwards. otherwise, great gloves!

Rated4out of5byfromNot for freezing temperatures.2nd Review...these gloves are cool til u get to the low 40s After that not at all. They are waterproof but dont have enough insulation for extreme cold. My hands were were ice bricks on the inauguration days with a heating pack in each one. Misery. Cool about 45 degrees & higher though. Good bargain but... You might have to pay a little more for a better glove for extreme cold weather.
