Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
Size Bought: L
These were not quite as warm as I had hoped, but I did like the palm grip area a lot. We'll see how they hold up. I ordered a Large because my hand measure was 8.5" and I always wear large in gloves. These are a little tight but not too tight. I would love to compare to an XL and I might have gone with an XL.
I've got a Castelli glove now for about every temperature. I just happen to really like their gloves. The scalda was no exception, it's a great glove, they do run on the small side so keep in mind when ordering. I can wear them down to low 40's, I know everyone it different but that should get you a good idea. comfortable on and dexterity is good for a glove that warm. I've just used them on a few rides now but been very pleased with them. definitely recommended.
