Cold weather doesn't mean you need to hang up your bike. Giant's Chill Lite Gloves are the perfect answer to falling temps. Multi-layer laminate construction blocks the wind, water, and insulates to keep your fingers toasty warm. The Amara leather palm is reinforced in high-wear areas and features supportive padding to smooth the road and distribute pressure. There's a large, soft micro-fiber nose wipe on the back of the thumbs, and reflective accents for increased visibility in low-light conditions.
I have medium size hands and bought a large size (the gloves run small). I really liked these gloves but the wrist elastic is much too tight. I returned them and got the Giant Mid Chill which are a little thicker than I need for Northern California winters but fit well and are comfortable.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
