I got these gloves on sale from Dogfunk. The aesthetics are beautiful (I ordered the Cognac colour) and the gloves are made with a Gore-Tex insert and PrimaLoft One insulation, however, there are two issues that I personally don't like.
First, is the length of the pinky and index fingers are way too long. I wear size small in every glove (including these ones), but the pinky and index lengths feel unorthodoxically too long.
The second thing is that the leather pull-tabs for the hem cinch and security strap feel cheap. I'm afraid to pull on them too hard because they feel like they'll rip apart.
Otherwise, these are great gloves for the price I got them at. The gauntlet is really slim and not huge, which is perfect for riders who want to be able to wear their jacket cuffs over their gloves. And PrimaLoft One is Albany Int'l Corp's highest performing insulation for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility.
All in all these are great gloves but the poor finger length sizing is a disappointment.
The leather on the palms also feels a little soft; it remains to be discovered how long they'll last.
Also, the left glove does have a goggle wipe contrary to what Dogfunk's Tech Specs say.

These gloves are great looking and feel great inside, BUT i haven't had a chance to test them out yet but with the Gore-Tex I'm sure they'll stay dry and warm. unfortunately I am exchanging the size L for an XL because my fingers are to long for the L ( my middle finger is 3.5 inch long, and my index is 3 in. long, they but up against the end to tightly). Even though it fit fine around the biggest part of my hand great which is 9 inches aorund the knuckles.
P.S. - i got the Cognac pair and they do come with a GOGGLE WIPE on the left thumb! even though it says it doesnt
