Rated 4 out of 5 by Komsomolitan Waterproof, just not very warm
Good in rain and maybe +10 Celsius minimum, I use technical running gloves underneath in colder weather. Seem sturdy enough, have lasted almost daily use for months, don't get stinky easily either.
I got these very cheaply and think they are well worth the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not that great
Lets cover the good points first. Are they waterproof? Yes are they warm? Yes. So can't really compalain...or can you?
The glove is made in 3 part. An inner cotton glove, a middle rubber glove and an outer. The first time you wear them they they are awesome. Once your hand is sweaty and you take them off the inner glove comes out and you cannot get they back easily. They never feel right again and always a bit uncomfy.
Verdict. Great to begin with but then a bit disappointing.

Well made with good feel,good fit and warm, BUT they are not waterproof. On a 3 hour run in the rain they were wet through in about one hour.Saturated by the end.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Not waterproof, or very warm... and a pain to get off/on
I've had these over a winter now and they're pretty disappointing. They are snug and fleecy (though my hands still get numb with cold after an hour or so), and have lots of outer padding which doesn't repel water at all so they get wet through.
But the main problem, as others have raised, is the loose liner. As your hands are clammy every time you'll take them out (either from rain or sweat) you have to be careful to hold the tip of each finger to avoid pulling the liner inside out... and have to spend ages trying to get each finger back inside again afterwards!
These gloves don't encourage me to go out in the cold or wet. :/

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Good, but with flaws
These gloves are great for warmth, adequate but not brilliant in the wet, but my biggest gripe is to do with the lining. Basically there is a loose inner liner that tends to bunch in certain locations and is firstly really annoying when putting these gloves on, and secondly adds to discomfort when riding. A disappointing feature to a great glove

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Bad buy
I've worn these gloves four times during cycles ranging from 12 miles to 30 miles. They have let me down 3 our of 4 times. They are certainly not waterproof, in fact they are like sponges soaking up all the water causing your hands to get very cold! On my second cycle using these gloves I noticed that the inner liner had separated from the outer layer which makes them very difficult to get on quickly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous far from perfect but good for the money
Using those for daily commuting (45 mins ride) during the UK's winter.
They are absorbing the water as other mentioned but your hand stays dry.
They offer some wind and cold protection but you would want something better for anything under 0 degree or your fingers freeze within minutes.
Considering they consist number of layers the grip is not bad but taking them on and off is definitely not as easy as with single layer summer gloves.
Overall a good budget gloves for colder/wetter seasons.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous warm but not waterproof
I bought these gloves after I ruined my last pair when I crashed and cut open the palm of my hand - 4 stitches. So i bought them for the padding on the palm, which i havent needed yet. They are lovely and warm, but are certainly not waterproof, they absorb a lot of water and when riding in the wet, the gloves will be a lot heavier at the end due to this water absorption.
