Our Two Cents
I’m not sure what I was expecting from a an insulated and waterproof glove that is priced less than $45, but wow, I’m really liking these! The leather is really nice and feels like it is pretty high quality. And the insulating material feels pretty substantial… I’d characterize it as “medium weight”. The tag on the glove says “60g Thinsulate” The fingers are “box cut” meaning the seams are to the outside which makes for a more comfortable fit since the seams are not turned to the inside of the fingers. This is a particularly good feature for gloves that have insulation since things can get crowded and uncomfortable inside the fingers with internally sewn seams.
The gloves are built with a “HiPora” brand waterproof liner. It isn’t GoreTex, but we’ve carried gloves with this brand of liner for many years without complaint. You can adjust the cuff of the gloves with the Velcro tab and the hook/loop material used is the kind that doesn’t snag other fabrics which is another nice touch. The gloves are lined with a soft fleecy material in the hand area and a more durable nylon in the cuff area, so the gloves are comfy on the hand, but the nylon part won’t get snagged or worn as fast in the cuff area. Just so you know, I don’t find any “armor” built into these gloves for impact protection on a bike. Many winter gloves don’t have impact protection, but in the interest of full disclosure, it is something you should know. Overall, I think these gloves feel great and the price is pretty much unbelievable. I think you’ll be really happy with these. :: Paul, 09-29-17
