Early Christmas Present

My wife and I had plans for a ride this morning. It was cooler than expected so I broke out the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Lobster Gloves I bought us for Christmas. It was in the low 40's and these performed perfectly. My wife has cold hands all the time (even in the summer) and they were actually sweating on our ride. These gloves would easily hold up in much colder temperatures. If you're not a fan of cold hands I highly recommend you get a pair. The lobster design is a little awkward at first but I quickly got accustomed to them. Shifting wasn't a problem and there was more than enough dexterity. If I had any negative feedback it would be that the reflective stickers were already coming off of both of our gloves. As a consumer of quite a bit of gear from Pearl Izumi I was suprised that these would get past inspection. I give the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Lobster Gloves 4 1/2 stars only because of the lack of quality control.
