Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Incredibly versatile.

Cons: No water resistance

Recommendation: I've been riding these for 3 years now and the combo of minimal insulation with wind proofing makes them really versatile. I wear them from 50 or 60 degrees down to 25 or 30. They have been very durable through that time. Also the padding is just right for mountain biking.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Surprisingly warm
Excellent wind blocking
Decent palm padding
Smartphone compatible

Cons: Several fingers are a little long
Not as breathable as I expected, Hands got a little sweaty

Recommendation: I recently wore these on a fat bike ride at 5° F and my hands were toasty warm. The wind blocking was perfect even at 30 MPH and yet on the palm side they work and feel like regular cycling gloves

The smartphone compatibility is a bonus.

Pros: They look nice.

Cons: Padding feels like cardboard, doesn't help your grip at all. Short lifespan.

Recommendation: I wouldn't buy these again. There is much better quality for the price.

Pros: Not overly bulky, good dexterity. Long cuffs, good wrist coverage.

Cons: Not completely windproof. Not super-cushy padding, but enough for me.

Recommendation: These are good for cool, but not COLD weather. I really like them for down to about 25 degrees.
