ON EDIT: Gloves are Pro Winter 2, not original Pro Winter gloves. On my way south last week through the horrible storms in California I picked up a pair of Pro Winter gloves. I like the way the gloves are designed. There is a velcro cinch strap on the wrist area, and it is made so that the end of the strap can't come completely out and be a hassle to get back in with gloved hands. There is also a nice cinch on the guantlet portion of the glove. It's a round elastic pull. There is a push button release to make it easy to open up all the way, get it over the sleeves of your jacket and then reach over with the other hand and cinch it down good. I have ridden in some torrential rain and wind this past week and never got a drop inside of the gloves. I have also worn then in temperatures down to 22deg and my hands stayed toasty warm. The palms are insulated, so it takes a few moments to begin to feel the heat from the grip warmers. The gloves are more bulky than non-insulated gloves but I don't find them overly bulky. Operating clutch and brake levers is still easily accomplished, though you do lose a little feel. I tried securing my helmet strap with the gloves on and wasn't able to do it as there just wasn't enough tactile feel. With some practice I may be able to do it, but usually I put my helmet on before my gloves anyway, especially if it's raining. They aren't super cheap at $145 retail, but so far they have kept me comfortable enough that I consider them a good value and worth a look.
