These are pretty good gloves, I ride down to the low 40's- hands stay warm around town (lower speeds) not sure about highway. If it's in the 30's I drive my car. I have a naked (no fairing) motorcycle, just wish the gloves were a bit longer. I had elastic sewn in the (V) section, with my leather sleeves zipped down I had a gap which created drafts down sleeves. This helped but you really have to pull gloves down tight and they will some times come lose, creating that draft again. Kind of a pain, not bad for the price, just not long enough.
I wanted this type of gloves because I drive a large truck yet need my fingers free to write. The gloves are an overall good value but they are somewhat stiff. After a few days fo wearing them at work they broke in and I now have a good pair of work gloves for a very good price. They are also moderatly padded yet still allow for a good "feel". I would recomend using baseball glove softner oil in order to speed up the break in period. These gloves are not flimsy driving gloves and should last for a good period of time. Nothing was stated as to the type of leather but my guess is that they are cowhide. I am happy with my purchase and would recomend.
