Got these as part of my search to find the perfect gloves to use with heated handgrips. Most winter gloves are insulated on the palms which sort of negates the heated grips. And I hate bulky gloves. I really like these. The windstopper stuff works and so far my hands have stayed nice and warm. The palm is a single piece of leather a lot like the gloves I wear the rest of the year. Very comfortable to wear. Has knuckle protection and a bit of padding on the fingers. Unfortunately not waterproof but you can't have everything. Still wear gauntlets if I plan on going hard but these are about right for day to day riding in the cold with heated grips.
