Our Two Cents
The FirstGear Explorer gloves are a nice, lighter weight insulated winter glove. They will be great for winters where the temperatures do not dip below freezing too often. The majority of the back of the glove is textile, while the first two fingers and knuckles do get some leather overlays. The goat leather palm is soft and flexible, and should provide a decent level of feel for the controls. A Hipora waterproof lining should do a good job keeping your hands dry in the rain, and 40grams of Thinsulate insulation is built into the back of the hand for warmth.
