These gloves are lightweight and breathable. I had size medium and they fitted quite nicely. These gloves are said to be windproof and water-resistant which I think they are to an extent, but on my commute to and from work when it was quite cold and windy my hands were starting to get cold after about 5 minutes. They have light micro-fleece inside which is nice and soft on your hands. The soft Lycra cuff fits far enough up your wrist to keep the draft out. The palm and fingers are covered in rubberised grip material, which I thought was an excellent idea.
