This review is a year old, i bought these from CC during the winter of 2012-2013, and had tried to figure out a glove situation for long 3-5 hour rides in 32Fish temperatures. I tried a few pairs from pearl isuzu and gore , but was unable to figure out a glove situation. I do agree with some of what has been said that these gloves (by themselves) can take you down to about 40 degrees comfortably. For me below 40F the gloves alone* are not enough, however, i have very thin silk glove liners from a ski company seirus (12$ on amazon) that I use with the assos and i can report plenty of successful rides at* 32F for 3-5 hours. For sub 32F rides under 2 hours, this same setup works for me. (Dry conditions). These gloves are not waterproof. Hope this helps someone. YES they are pricey, but if you ride alot during the winter, and use them... I think they are worth it!
