Short cuff city commuting glove, constructed using Gore-Tex Windstopper outer shell fabric combined with hard knuckle protection. Leather palm construction keeps hands protected from the asphalt giving this glove excellent comfortable performance in wet and chilly conditions with ample riding protection.

These gloves are quite different to any I have owned previously, however the material used allows them to feel comfortable from Day 1, and with some stretch capability they fit very well.
I have encountered some showers which were shrugged off, the water "balling up" on the surface rather than soaking in, so water resistance might be fine for moderate rain.
They were warm on the cool days I have used them, down to about 12C, and the stretchy fit means the grip and feel is also very acceptable.
Negatives? Not much.The name and logo are sort of plasticky transfers, and most of it has quickly peeled off - no big deal to me. You need a strong pull to get them on, being stretchy, and this puts stress on the knitted cuff to glove sewn join. I heard a couple of thread snaps, so I am now very careful not to stress this sewn joint further. Finally, you can't wipe a clear patch on a wet visor, the material just smears, another minor niggle.
Overall, I like these gloves very much, good product.

Warmer than leather, but still not the complete answer on cold mornings.
Get a size bigger than you think.

Wanted something for the cold Melbourne weather (not wet, just cold) but not too bulky. These are the best things I've found. Went for a long ride up the hills yesterday (May)temp was 17c in Melb when we left so probably dropped to 14c in the hills and dropped a few more degrees by the time we got home. My mate had full leather gloves on and was complaining about the cold for the second half of the trip. Added benefit is that they're not too 'loud' so I can use em on the cruiser and on the supersport.
