My hands did not feel cold at all on first use but, as expected, slightly less feel due to the thickness of the glove compared to my summer gloves. I think this will improve with use.
Very pleased with these gloves.

Warm but hands get tired
20 January 2024 by Stephen J
Best fit in the shop, although fingers a little long. Hands ache after a long time gripping the handlebars, but the gloves may ease in with more use. Waterproofness not tested yet.

They'll do

Hour and a half in the constant rain and still dry hands, when over trousers gave up with the obvious wet crutch and ankles, didn't have to use the heated grips, nice

5-Star Gloves and 5-Star service.
Shopping online at SportsBikeShop just couldn't be better.
Match just how cold it is outside to the gloves to wear and your fingers will be warm and dry for sure.

As usual a great mid range glove.
Nothing will ever keep the cold out at motorway speeds but nice and dry hands after a spell of rain.
All good

Winter glove
10 May 2023 by Paul R
I've used these gloves now for a variety of temperatures. 2 degrees to 18 degrees. If you have good circulation they'll keep you warm for 30 minutes or so, at 2 degrees, 70 mph. I've found the duration extending as the temperature increases. The main issue that stopped this being an excellent rating is the lining that's meant for the waterproofing leaves my hands damp (clammy) this makes removing them an issue. Pulling the lining inside out. I've not been in enough rain yet to offer an opinion so far.

Warm, comfortable and dry. I have used these in heavy rain and I always been warm and dry. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and cannot afford to be cold. Highly recommend

Good value comfortable gloves

These gloves are a good fit for my hands. They have a good exterior finish and feel robust so far as I have only had these a few weeks. They have kept my fingers dry and warm so far in the recent cold weather they have performed well.

Pleased with them
01 February 2023 by Brian
I cannot comment for the test of time having only had them a couple of weeks, but the quality appears very good.
I bought them for the winter months. I have no front fairing on the bike and my fingers get a little cold. They work as intended keeping my hands warm and dry.

Better options available

I ordered these alongside the Carbon Winter's to try. Couldn't really see where the difference in price was. They seemed well made, but definitely not a premium feeling product. I returned them as I've opted for heated gloves.

Good quality and well made

I have not tried these gloves in really cold temperatures yet. But they seem very good quality. My hands are towards the top end of large according to the size chart I bought XL which are a great fit for me.

I needed some gloves for the autumn months and noticed these had good reviews so purchased a pair from the excellent SportsBikeShop. Great gloves at this price point, well made, warm, true to size and excellent service from the SportsBikeShop.

Richa arctic glove

Bought these based on other reviews with the hope they would be warmer than my £45 gloves. Rode for an hour at 1 deg centigrade, after approx 25 mins started to feel a bit cold, by the time I got home my fingers were painfully cold. I have hand guards but no heated grips. Going to try some silk glove liners to see what they're like then, hopefully better! Seem well made though time will tell.

Brought for cold days
15 February 2022 by David
Picked these up from a recommendation. Been feeling it during the cold days on my old gloves which say they was the best so stumped up the hight cost only to find these they wasnt that good. Gutted tbh. These from the of seem much thicker and warmer. Cant say how good over a 2 hours ride but 30 min in 6 degrees are ok. Only time will tell actually how good but I am optimistic

Snug and warm
08 February 2022 by Craig M
Great winter gloves. Good fit and feel. Keeps your hands plenty warm in even the coldest jaunts. Not so thick that tactile response is compromised. Price point is brilliant. You could easily spend 50% more money for 50% less performance. Sportsbikeshop once again is the only place to shop. Phenomenal service.

Cracking glove, really warm and waterproof, good dexterity for a well insulated product. Plus you can still use heated grips for extra warmth.
