Ideal for cold weather these winter cycling gloves are waterproof and windproof. They are constructed from three layers of fabric, an outer wind stopper layer, a central waterproof membrane and a warm inner core layer. The cycling glove palms are printed with a silicone graphic that will assist your grip in all weathers and stop slipping in wet weather. A wide elasticated Velcro closure ensures a good fit that will keep the elements out and the warmth in and makes the glove easy to put on and take off. These cycle gloves are designed to be flexible even though they are padded and include 4-way stretch material and articulation design features on the back and fingers. Suitable for any type of cycling or bike commuting and many sports. Available in white and Hi visibility yellow for extra visibility. All colours have reflective details for increased visibility in low light conditions. Essential for any cyclist who continues to ride through the colder months. Gloves can be washed by hand or at a low temperature in a washing machine.

I confirm all the pros and the next 2 cons already indicated in other reviews:
- they are 1-2cm short on the wrist. (I do not mind having 1-2cm of my skin of my wrist exposed to cold, some other people might);
- when you take them out, some of the inner fabric moves (but it does not come off). So, when you put them on again you have to spend a few seconds in adjusting the inner fabric. I am not too bothered by this.
I have only 1 thing to add what written in other reviews: in these gloves the part covering the wrist is a broad black elastic band. This band is stitched to the rest of the glove with a single thread. Well, I used these gloves only a few times, but I got the feeling that this single thread of stitching is not strong enough to withhold the pulling I exert on the elastic band when putting these gloves on.
Now I am careful when I put them on and I do not pull the elastic band, but I rather push the gloves in from top.
I used these gloves a few times, one of these times it rained heavily and no water went through.
Despite these little cons, I would but them again.
I've added 1 star as I've been able to test this in the cold weather; yes they are maybe a touch padded but once you get used to them they are definitely worth the purchase, this last week has been pretty cold and yet my hands have been lovely and warm.
Warning - your gloves will stink if you dont wash them regularly.
I dont recall how quickly they arrived. Or what I thought of them at first. But ...... I'm still wearing them, and they have no rips or tears and no signs of wear. And I train for Ironman events so they get a fair out amount of usage.
Great. If I ever need to replace them, ill buy exactly the same.
They fit well, grip well, and the velcro is strong.
Only complaint was the the velcro on the cuffs stop sticking after a couple of yrs,and the stitching gave way after 4-5 years.
Still a great pair of waterproof for the money!
