Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are nice gloves since they are wind proof, but they tend to run very small. I usually get medium gloves, but decided to get these in large. The fit was surprisingly small. I can get them on but they feel like a medium size. They seem more suited for women's hands. I will keep them, because I like the dexterity, but if I was to order more of these I would get an extra large or 3XL. I gave these 3 stars because of the fit.

I have spent a lot of money on gloves, including claw types. I have found the claw types to be warmer for riding than regular gloves at temperatures below about 40 degrees F. I normally wear a medium glove, but the reviews indicated that these gloves ran small, so I got the large. The large size felt like a medium which was good for dexterity, but fell short for warmth. If I were to buy these again, I would prefer to get an extra large, which unfortunately is not available at this time. I think a larger size would provide some air space inside that would improve warmth, especially since these do not seem to be windproof, possibly to improve breathability. The separate insulation that surrounds the fingers seems like a good idea but does not seem to work well. The claw design is really to place individual fingers (without the thumb) together in two groups to generate and improve warmth, but I have found that my hands get just as ice cold with these gloves as any other pair of gloves that I have had in the past, with the exception of an old pair of claw gloves without separated interior finger holes I got a long time ago that eventually wore out. I would suggest that a windproof layer of fabric be used as the outer part of the glove to prevent any cold air from getting into the glove. The palm area could be breathable, since it would be facing away from the on-coming very cold wind. This seems to be a problem with all of the gloves that I have purchased. They are warm when there is no wind (standing still) but can be very cold when riding. Sorry for the long review, but I have been able to stay warm in ice cold conditions, except for my hands. I commute to work daily by bike and I have not found anything that will keep my hands warm after about 10 minutes of riding.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

As the other review from Beatriz mentioned, this item runs small, very small. I bought a medium since my measurements matched up with the medium category in the chart. When I got it, I could barely get it on, it was really small. I have a 32 waist and I couldn't come close to zipping it up. The jacket is very lightweight and it could be easily packed into a pocket to be used later. It does not stretch at all, so getting the right size is necessary. There's no wiggle room at all. It seems to be well made and I really liked the Screaming Yellow color. The arms seem to be extra long, which may help when gripping the handle bar. I gave it 3 stars mainly because of the fit and because I had to send it back. I will probably get the next size up after my account is credited.
