Sizing notes

For hand circumference, measure around your dominant hand just below the knuckles. If your measurements are midway between two sizes, choose the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winter Gloves These gloves are are rated for 15 degrees and colder. They are also promoted as breathable, windproof and waterproof. The gloves windproof qualities are bit mixed in their usefulness. Anything breathable is not 100% windproof, even though companies love to tell you they are. At cycling speeds above 20MPH you will feel air entering through the fingers. This may be fine for fat biking (which these gloves are intended for) where you are slowly trudging through deep snow. But as a pair of commuter gloves on roads, they start to lose their luster. Using these gloves in single digits is warmer than any other 5-finger cycling glove I've found. A pair of lobster claw 3-finger gloves are probably going to be a bit warmer for the index and middle fingers, but at the cost of dexterity. You can certainly tell that the middle and index fingers get colder quicker than your ring and pinky. This will be abundantly clear in single-digits and negative temps. They are still some of the warmest gloves I've worn in super cold weather. So they stand up well to the competition. Just don't think you're going to brave negative wind chills at high speeds while staying toasty warm. Temper your expectations. The removable wool liners are a real bonus for a winter glove. There are many activities you will likely want to perform while keeping your fingers warm. Such as getting your keys out of your pocket, locking up your bike, changing a flat tire, etc. All of these will be much easier and much warmer since you can take off the bulky outer glove without taking the liner glove with it. The gauntlet cinch straps take a bit of fiddling to figure out which one tightens and which one loosens. They both look identical, so its not something you can easily memories. Make one of them orange, 45nrth! I much prefer Gore Bike Wear's Alp-X cinch straps with open on one side and close on the other. If you want to use your phone with these gloves, you're out of luck. But you can easily replace the liner gloves with ones that are touch screen-ready. Smartwool makes a great pair and they're cheaper than replacements from 45nrth. Speaking of the liner, the left glove has a very annoying polyester tag. I tried to get mine off but ended up ripping the fabric on the glove. These are LINER GLOVES! Put the tag on the outside! Overall, even with the negatives, these gloves are still a recommended buy. Nothing is perfect, but these are very very good. Worth $130 good? Well that's a hard question to tailor for everyone. I have no regrets. I won't be returning them.
