Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these gloves to be used during the winter in conjunction with some wool or polyester liners; I was hoping that that combination of wind blockage and warmth generated by the liners could work down to the mid 20's. However, I believe that calling these gloves "Windstopper" is an overstatement since I felt the wind killing my fingertips at 43F without liners. The gloves say that they are not waterproof but have some water resistance, which is somewhat true but I wouldn't recommend wearing these in humid conditions. Also, the liner inside this Gore glove is 80% cotton, which is a terrible idea for a wicking layer and only makes your hands sweaty while providing no warmth and it is not properly fitted to the glove which makes the hands fill slippery while gripping the handlebars. Last, the velcro is extremely powerful but cannot do anything to properly close the glove since the wrist part is not elastic and just won't close tightly. I'm not sure what use, if any, I'll give this gloves but as of right now it looks like I wasted $55. The fit is good though.
