That said, this is an absolutely great winter glove. The leather is pliable and soft and the outlast liner transmits heat beautifully. I have yet to try out the waterproof claim, as I seem to just miss the rain, snow, and sleet, but I have, as of now, ridden with them in 40 degree temps and slightly below freezing temps.
If you are a winter rider, I would recommend these for down to 42 degrees without electric assistance, but when you get into the low 30s, they really shine with grip warmers. One of my issues with the Bilt gloves was the transmission of heat from my grip warmers would be focused at the palm. With the Catton gloves, the heat from the grips moves up into the palm and circulates to the top of the glove, the fingers (though finger tips get a little chilly), and even the wrists under the gauntlets. In the low 30s, my hands were very comfortable.
These gloves do run just a little large. I normally wear a medium in gloves, but I might have been able to size down to a small without having issues. That said, if I plan to add liners, there's the space to accommodate them. The gauntlets also don't necessarily fit well over a bulkier jacket, though they fit over my Scorpion Exo shirt pretty well.
From the one stint in a little bit of water, I can say the wiper blade is a little lacking, but, as great of an idea as a thumb wiper blade is, pulling an effective one off seems to be a difficult task for any glove.
Overall... the quality of these is great and well worth the price-tag. Knuckle protection is great, leather is nice and supple, style is Merlin A+, and the ability to circulate heat is incredible.
