These are some fantastic cold weather gloves. I wear them on any cold ride. It makes me look forward to a cold commute. I have enough space inside to add an additional, thin runners glove to add more warmth if needed. The gloves are not cumbersome enough to mess with shifting or braking, in fact, they're not cumbersome at all. The grip is very grippy, especially on the first few rides. I was sticking to the hoods. Not in a bad way. I'd highly recommend these. I might even purchase a second pair on sale.
