Rated 4 out of 5 by djcb toasty and not too bulky
Excellent quality and build. Warm without being too bulky. Grippy.
Having had gloves like this before I know to be very careful taking them off and washing them repeatedly as once the lining comes out of the fingers its a nightmare to get back in again--could be a problem if taken off w sweaty hands when out and about.

I bought these on the manufacturer's claim they're good for a temperature range -10 to 8. I've ridden four times in temperatures ranging from -2 to 3. The other reviewer has remarked that his index fingers went numb while resting on the brake levers. Same here - after a mere 15 or so minutes. Getting them off the levers seems to solve the issue for a while. If I ride street my fingers go numb again after about an hour. In the dirt I rode for an hour and a half without problems - I suspect the constant banging on the handlebars does the trick and keeps hands warm. The liner is also an issue and my hands were totally dry. I suspect if they get sweaty it'd be a pain in the butt to put them back on - but then, these gloves are not warm enough to make one sweat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Longshanks Very comfortable, excellent quality
It might be too early to write some "long term" review, but just wanted to share my first impression.
Straight out of the box - WOW! The quality of the gloves is excellent. Perfect in every single detail. Couldn't wait to take them out for a spin, it was -3* to -1*. I always ride with my index fingers on the levers so they usually turn numb and purple after few minutes, but not in these gloves! It took good while when I could actually feel the fingers getting cold, so I just took them off the levers and carried on. Couple of minutes later they were back to normal and for the next 2hrs of constant cycling never turned cold again.
Very comfortable to wear until you need to take 'em off and put them back on. The internal layer seem to be loose and when it's wet from sweat it gets pulled out and it takes a while trying to put your hand in it again. Not a big problem really, considering that they work really well in these temperatures.
I'll try to test them when it gets colder and will write some more.

Taken a look into this and Mavic do not appear to have a size guide for their gloves. I did read that their gloves do tend to be a size larger than normal. From what we picked up a size 9 would be between a M and L.
