3.0 out of 5 stars There are better options 6 Mar. 2014
By Pete A. - Published on
Colour Name: BlackSize: Large Verified Purchase
I just bought these after leaving my Craft lobster gloves on the bumper of my car, and was able to give them a proper test on my commute this morning at ~20F. Build quality seems decent enough, sizing seems accurate. Compared to my Craft (link below) gloves however, I don't think these are quite as good for several reasons:

1. They're no warmer, possibly even slightly less warmer than the Crafts. I need more time on them to be able to really tell. My index and middle fingers are particularly sensitive to the cold, and they were numbing up a bit, 10 minutes into my ride at ~20F. Not unbearable, but I feel like the Crafts have kept me warmer a little longer than these did, at these temperatures. The Crafts have a built-in liner that separates the fingers, these do not. Initially I thought maybe the direct finger contact of these gloves would help maintain warmth, but I don't think this is the case.

2. They're less comfortable than the Craft gloves. There's just something about them that feels awkward, the feeling you'd expect from wearing a lobster glove. The Craft gloves just feel a bit more like a regular glove.

3. The Crafts came up the arm a little bit further, helping to better keep wind off the wrist.

4. They're much more expensive than the Crafts. The Crafts were ~$52.00, these were $75.00. That's about a 30% difference!

Here are the Crafts (Craft Men's Bike Siberian Split Finger Glove):

5.0 out of 5 stars great design, look, comfort, warmth, and light weight. 28 Nov. 2013

I got these gloves on 11/27/13 and took it out for a 30 miles ride on 11/28/13 thanksgiving morning from 5:30-7:30am.
Temperature at that time... 31 degrees
Wind chill... 15-20 mph
Gust... 25 mph+
Average speed... 18.5 mph (excluding the miles when I was on the street)
Average temperature according to Garmin 800... 28 degrees
Constant temperature during the ride... 24.7-25.3 degrees

I wore a pair of Seirus Thermax Deluxe glove liners underneath these gloves and they fit really well. Because I get cold easily.

Here is my review...

1st hour... these gloves provided warmth and comfort during the ride.
2nd hour... the tip of my fingers were getting slightly numb and cold.
At 30 miles... My hands are still warm and comfortable except my finger tips are slightly numb, not frozen.

All in all, these gloves are amazing. I was skeptical at first about the ''lobster design'' but it worked out very well for me. I could shift gears with ease. I would suggest to order one size larger than your usual so you could layer it with some thin gloves like I did.
Other than that, I will keep using these for the rest of the winter!

3.0 out of 5 stars Three weeks in . . . 23 Oct. 2014
By Dann J. Golden-collum - Published on
This is an early review, as I've only used these mitts three times in the three weeks I've had them. What I was looking for in these mitts is the transition between needing Pearl Izumi Cyclone gloves in cooler fall/spring weather (I looooove my seven year old pair of Cyclone gloves!!!!), and Pogies, for temps below 15 degrees F. The Cyclone gloves are good down to about 25 for me, so I'm needing hand protection from 15 to 25 degrees - which is supposed to be these mitts.

What I'm finding are two things I like, and three things I don't like:

I like #1 - the mitts seem to be extremely wind resistant.
I like #2 - the finish is excellent.

Don't like #1 - the mitts don't breathe (extremely wind resistant, doncha know), so my hands can get really sweaty. We all know that sweaty in winter = bad juju.
Don't like #2 - the inner liner tends to pull out with my hands when taking them off, turning the thumb liner inside out. Putting the mitts back on means shoving and maneuvering the liner back into place, and it tends to bunch up at the end of the thumb until I really jamb it back into place. Uncomfortable!
Don't like #3 - for me, the split is too deep, with the mitt fabric digging in between my middle and ring fingers, causing numbness. I've tried to pull the mitts down, but they seem to want to work their way back "into place" on my hands. I have larger hands, and got the XXL size . . .

I've used Pearl Izumi stuff for many years and it has always served well. Sad to not like these as much as I wanted to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wear these in 20 degrees and fingers are toasty 21 Dec. 2013

I've been wearing these for a few weeks now in temps from the low 20s to 30s. Im sorry I never wore lobster gloves cycling before. My fingers remain toasty (well not warm warm but never noticeably cold at all)

5.0 out of 5 stars My second pair -- perfect for Texas winter 18 Jan. 2014
By Hugh Winkler - Published on

I've owned a pair of these Pearl Izumi lobster claw gloves, and used them for winter cycling, for probably 15 years. I finally wore them through, so I broke down and bought this replacement. They are constructed nearly the same as my old pair. A minor difference is that the cuffs on these new ones do not extend as far beyond the wrist as the old ones, and these have a Velcro closure.

In central Texas, winter means 40+ degrees, and dry. You will never need extra linings using these gloves, in weather like that. I wear mine up into the 50s, and they aren't over-warm. Just super comfortable. I can't really attest to how these gloves perform in colder, wetter climates.

One thing I've noticed about the lobster-claw design, is that pulling the gloves off is easier, and I never pull the glove linings inside out. You never have to poke finger linings back into the glove, as I've had to do many times with five-fingered gloves.
