Gregory C.wrote a review of Castelli Cw.3.1 Gloves - Men's on December 31, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it several times
So far so good. Road riding in dry 38-48 degree temps and these Castelli gloves are fantastic. Very warm and ergonomic. I agree with other reviewers that these gloves will get hot as you approach 50 degrees. A few negative topics worth noting ... the palm padding is next to none and there is no soft area on back of thumb for nose wiping. C'mon, don't we all need that? Additionally, the palm side of the glove is generally lacking in reinforcement. I would have liked to see a larger leather patch in the area of the thumb webbing. Besides that, I do like the gloves and they do what I wanted. Warm hands on winter rides. I think the amount of insulation is near perfect for the range I described and I run a bit cold at the extremities.
