I am very cold natured, but I ride through most all the winter and needed something to keep my hands warm. I bought a pair of First Gear gloves and paid over $100 for them, but they didn't do it at all (good gloves, but designed for heated grips). I then bought these and a pair of $10 silk liners and they have done the trick. My coldest day so far is 6 degrees, and that is 20 miles at 70mph. I did order a 2xl for the extra space and warmth. I can't say enough good about these, especially for what I gave for them.
