psiarmwrote a review of Castelli Lightness Gloves on December 2, 2012
Received these gloves expecting something good from Castelli. Turns out they were GREAT...!!!
FIt was a bit tight when putting them on (guess I have a rather large maw but my long fingers were wonderfully enveloped....*across the wristband - NO GIVE...!!!
Once on they OUT PERFORMED expectations. Good down to mid-20s with not additional liner...and FANTASTIC wind blockage. VERY MUCH like the PULL-TAB INTEGRATED INTO THE RE-ENFORCED PALM...VERY few worries about about ripping seams while pulling then on...!!!
I've used a wool glove INSIDE them to make them roasty-toasty and can see them warming me down to 0 F. The gloves form fit very nicely over the wool gloves [DeFeet wool gloves with accented palms and fingers...!!! -- Castelli makes a similar product - Unico Glove].
Clean up nicely and dry within an hour (if wrong out..!!!) +++ on water repellant - haven't actually immersed them into a tank, but imagine they would do rather well resisting seepage -- NOT WATER RESISTANT, but close
