Was looking for a pair of winter riding gloves that would allow perspiration from my hands to escape through the glove membrane while riding. I live in North Florida. Winter riding is limited to temps above 35F. Description of these gloves and ratings from buyers indicated that they breathe well. On 2-3 hour rides in temps of 35-45F, my hands were soaked. Insulation from these temps was fine, but the goretex membrane did not move perspiration as advertised.
In prep for winter riding in Seattle, I tried all kinds of wet weather tights (showers pass, castelli, 4ucycling, arc'teryx). These gore bike wear pants are the winner for riding in medium amd heavy rain. 34 pants are a non starter (castelli tempesta), showers pass skyline are a weirdly snug and short fit.
I'm 5'10 175lbs with muscular thighs. I bought medium c3 gore pants. This fit was just right as an over layer that isn't too flappy.
These are relatively light (in weight and thickness) covers but so far they have been good down to the upper 30 F range on road bike rides. I now expect them to work in the lower 30F range, and perhaps lower on slower gravel rides. I bought the 42-44EU size and they fit nicely on my 42.5 and 43 shoes. Durability is still hard to judge since I've had them only a few months. I am pleased with the product.
