Several wet and cold rides with these gloves and they always keep my fingers very warm. Neoprene is very form fitting and i love that it does not have a velcro closure; fits very snug against body not allowing a draft in around the cuff. The palm is very cool looking and grippy, I feel like Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe when i wear these! Another great product from Castelli. It would be nice however to have some outer fleece on the back of the thumb to wipe my nose with; neoprene is not very soft against a runny nose!!
