Our Two Cents
The second generation Polar-Tex 2.0 gloves from Tour Master are winter-time riding gloves. You’ll find a few more features on these gloves than some other lower-priced models. For example the insulating material is Thinsulate™ which is a higher tech material to provide maximum insulating properties with minimal bulk. I’d characterize the overall bulk of these gloves as “medium”... not something you’d want to race in, but not so bulky you can’t do the basics of riding either. The overall construction and quality seems very high. The leather used in the palm area is thick and should provide long wear (and good crash protection). Of course the gloves include a waterproof/breathable barrier to keep out moisture. There is a VERY nice strap adjustment at the wrist to snug them down on the hand and an elastic cord-type thingy to snug them down over your jacket sleeve to keep out the wind (and maybe water?).
