Thermal Rating Explained:
We design and engineer the entire range of products so there is something suitable for all weather conditions. Naturally, how cold or hot someone feels is relative to the individual. We have developed a thermal rating system, graded from ONE to FIVE to indicate the relative warmth of our products.
Products with a thermal rating of ONE are lighter weight and/or thinner and suited to warmer conditions or more energetic activities, such as running. Products with a thermal rating of FIVE are heavier weight and/or thicker, these are great for cold, extreme conditions and are suited to less-energetic, static activities, such as fishing and shooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by longcanadianwinter Decent down to about -15C
I was looking for some winter gloves for commuting to work in Calgary, Alberta. I cycle down to -35C so these will be put to a good test. First impressions out of the packet were good. Gloves look well made and put together. They fit tight initially (I followed the siding guide on the website) but after a few uses they loosened up and are a good comfortable fit.
This week the mercury plunged to between -15 and -20C with wind chills as low as -30C a couple of days. These gloves handled this reasonably well although I did find my fingers getting really cold as I descended hills. I found that once I stopped and rubbed my hands to get circulation restarted plus got on some flat my hands were warm again. On the way home exerting more effort uphill and in temperatures around -15C they were nice and warm.
Bottom line: These will do you very nicely down to about -10 to -15C. Below that I plan to use a pair of pogies with these gloves inside and am very confident that will nice and warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steve823 Not good!
I've used these a couple of times now in temperatures from -1 to 5 degrees C. Firstly... they are NOT even remotely water resistant. Your hands will definitely get wet. On the plus side, provided you keep the gloves on, they act like a wetsuit and do actually keep my hands warm. But if you have to take them off, to change a tyre for example, then you're screwed. The gloves will be like lumps of ice by the time you put them back on. They are also pretty bulky so you definitely loose some feeling of control and will struggle to do anything fiddly with them on.
As others have said, the lining is also prone to getting tangled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mule So much hassle
The gloves seem warm enough though I haven't warn them below 7 deg c. The issue is the lining when your hands are warm they pull the inner layer out with them which then bunches up and twists in the fingers. so a quick top to check phone or change a puncture is extended by 10 mins of faffing to get the gloves back on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cantankerousjoe Nothing good to say
I have no idea where the other reviewers are coming from: either I have a completely different glove or the other reviews are all fake. If I could give these gloves 0 stars I would.
The glove could never be used for technical riding: the sewn-in liner slips and slides inside of the shell and doesn't allow for any decent amount of grip. It's like having your hands bathed in oil.
The glove is not warm. Not remotely. in 5 degree Celsius weather the cold is already nipping at my fingers, and once they're wet, I might as well be not wearing anything at all.
Speaking of which, THEY ARE NOT WATERPROOF. To say that they are water resistant would be a stretch. They got sopping wet within half an hour of riding in the rain, starting with the pinkie side of my hand from the water dripping off of my sleeves (which were pulled over the cuffs of the gloves).
I will pay the ridiculously high international shipping to have these returned immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous fantastic!
bought these last winter for my road commute in the very hi-vis yellow, and added to the warmth with the thermal liner gloves. after the very cold winter in cumbria with all the rain and snow an sub zero 7am temps i don't have any complaints, if anything i found they made my hands the warmest part of my body making them a bit sweaty and pulling the lining out with them, but its better than having cold numb hands any day.
the liners are bit of a rip-off for what they are but they do work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Amazing
Had these for about 3 years now! Still going strong and very warm. I use these every morning to do my paper round and living in the North of Scotland, during winter I see temperatures below -10C and they're still warm. Sometimes when it's that cold my finger tips get chilly but that is all. Well built, warn and comfy! What more? Oh and the don't restrict movement much, I ride a lot of DH and on snowy/frosty winters days these don't disappoint. Although they don't look too flashy but hey, they preform well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Bought a pair of these about six years ago. They're finally falling apart. Definitely replacing with the same. Enough said.

Finally a glove for sub zero temperature.
Get a larger size (they fit a little smaller).
