MSRP : $49.00


Product Description

These insulated gloves provide warmth without compromising dexterity--great for cycling or cross-country skiing.. Wind- and waterproof nylon/Lycra® spandex outer material stretches for a snug fit that is ideal for active outdoor sports. Durable leather palms with synthetic reinforcements offer a sure grip on handlebars or ski poles. Polyester fleece lining for lightweight yet warm insulation that wicks away moisture and dries quickly to keep your hands warm and comfortable. Terry cloth on index finger and thumb lets you wipe away moisture without removing gloves; ribbed cuff seals heat inside the glove. Contour palm and boxed-finger design provides a better fit and added durability.

Strengths:    Warm. When it's cold. Cool even when you are off the ride.

Weaknesses:    none.

Bottom Line:   
These are gloves for not only the pro but also the "hey it's too cold to ride, not" enthusiast. So go out and have a go and spite the cold. Just make sure to have other protective gear for the weather and not just the gloves.

Strengths:    Great gloves. Warm, durable, waterproof, and windproof.

Weaknesses:    Expensive and bulky.

Bottom Line:   
These gloves are great gloves for any sport, with durable palms and waterproof and windproof capabilities. They are really warm. However, they are also pretty bulky. I use them for cycling and my friends started laughing and saying that they looked like ski gloves. Which they can be used for, of course. But their $65 price made me return them in favor of an inferior but less expensive option.

Strengths:    They work. Do not restrict work to be done on handlebar and are good for Minus temps. They hardly show wear!

Weaknesses:    There just a little bulky, but for Winter so what.

Bottom Line:   
What's more to say. I got this pair on a blow-out price box so maybe they are even like a 2002 model of Pearl's winter gloves. Anyway, they are well worth it and Pearl Izumi should get an award for making so many products everyone likes. Just got to get lucky and look for the sales.

Cold weather product test: PI AmFIB gloves.

Now I see why these 2003 models have been on clearance at Performance. Ummm, to put it bluntly, they don't work. I've been using some $6.99 Kmart ski gloves for the really cold temps this winter (down to single digits) and they've worked pretty well, but when I saw these '03 AmFIBs on sale for ... Read More »
