BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Breathable and highly visible protection, but not for the heart of winter"

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 2.57pm By

The thickest glove on test is also the warmest when dry, providing supreme insulation even when it's freezing.

The fleecy inner is really comfortable, while the lobster claw design reduces surface area and with it heat loss. It's both windproof and waterproof and the leather palms offer good durability. You get reflective trim but there's no palm padding,
although this glove is so thick it's not really an issue. The only real downsides are that it's bulky and the outer soaks up a lot of water during rain, cooling it considerably. And you can't gesticulate properly at errant motorists.
