I purchased these gloves with the Speed & Strength Twist Of Fate 2.0 Mesh Jacket and it's the perfect combo. I purchased the gloves and jacket because I was tired of freezing in the morning 35 degree commute, and while these are definitely not a cold weather glove (they have way to much ventilation for that) they provided enough protection from the wind that it was very comfortable ride. The pad right above the knuckles actually flexes away from the glove to give the glove a huge range of mobility. We're talking credit card size expansion. I have nothing bad to say about the gloves, because once the weather warms up, I don't think I'll ever ride without them!
