    Disappointing

    By Dave

    from Washington DC

    About Me

    Comments:

    Nice, but not as warm as expected. I'm generally happy with Planet Bike products, but these gloves fall short of expectations. While nicely designed and manufactured, these gloves are not wind-proof. So, if it's well below freezing and there is a tailwind, your hands will be toasty. BUT,if there's a headwind your hands will get cold, even if it I should only a couple of degrees below freezing. In fact you can feel the wind move through the fabric. This is a huge error in my opinion. I therefore cannot recommend these.

    Comments:

    I bought these gloves for commuting through the winter. Waterproof seemed like a nice feature, but on a 10 mile commute, hand sweat is enough to soak the inside of the gloves (read: the gloves do not breathe well, so no evaporation.) After an 8 hour work day, inside of gloves is still wet. After leaving overnight, inside of gloves is still wet. Have to throw them in the dryer to get them aired out for the next day.
