November 29th , massive tropical hits northern California, l am riding south from Grants Pass Oregon to San Diego, several hours of frog-strangling rain, hands stayed dry AND warm. Debated about buying the Ultimate, glad I did!

I've been using these gloves for a couple winters now, and they're spectacular.
I really appreciate the thinner grip-side of the glove; I don't have problems like other gloves where the wires are cutting into my palm, and there is less to interfere with my hold on my grips.
Reasonably waterproof, which also cuts down on the wind that cuts through them, keeps me comfortable in almost any weather condition. In the worst near-0c rains, a pair of lobster shells over top are all it takes to make me the most comfortable risking-black-ice rider out there.
I even tend to keep these gloves on the bike during summer tours, just in case the temperatures dip and the rain starts falling.
I really appreciate the racing-glove-esque knuckles and padding.
As for a sizing comparison, I wear XL Rev-It gloves, but I wear L's in these.

40 minute commute and have ridden as low as 10F
(heated grips were struggling), warm with heat to spare. Gloves took a few rides to loosen up.
Pretty happy. I think think the underside of fingers would get cold below 30F without heated grips (I have windguards as well).

The gloves worked great while riding thru Colorado high country and over several passes. They were comfortable and glad I ordered the XXL. I wonder if the pocket above the knuckle protector will collect water when I ride in the rain? Guess I will find out if the pocket will get soggy when I ride in the rain or snow.

These gloves are great! At first they were very stiff,but, after a few rides they came good and are comfortable.I bought the Dual Heat-Troller for the jacket liner and gloves which works perfectly.Very comfy on a frosty morn! Very good quality,too.
