These are warm gloves for their low bulk. They’re not waterproof but are fairly water resistant and the polyurethane membrane in the back section keeps the wind off.
Fleecy inners add insulation, though 2XU’s claim that they’re suitable down to -5°C is optimistic – we’d be looking at a second layer well above freezing point.
Stretchy, adjustable cuffs extend over the ends of your jersey sleeves, and padding on the palms and well positioned reinforcement panels keep you comfy. Reﬂective piping and a towelling wipe on the thumb all help.
