If you're prepared, you don't have to hide by the fireplace when Old Man Winter comes to town. Instead, you can welcome him and shake his icy hand—just make sure that you're wearing the Craft Siberian Gloves. Featuring an ergonomic construction made from exclusive materials, the Siberian Gloves offer complete protection from the cruelty of winter.
The Siberian Gloves are Craft's best sellers for a reason—their sophisticated blend of proprietary materials and detail-driven construction. The Siberian Gloves use multiple fabric layers to achieve their weather-fighting, warming insulation. Starting with the outer layer, the gloves use a stretchy softshell material that's responsible for a majority of the gloves' thermo-regulation. Additionally, the malleable shell is hand-conforming, windproof, and waterproof. The second line of fabric defense is comprised of a warming and weatherproof three-layer polyester shell. The inner-lining of the Siberian Gloves uses a brushed-back fleece that wicks moisture from the skin's surface, and provides a soft-to-the-touch comfort. Working together, the materials form an all-weather glove that provides efficient insulation and complete protection from the elements.
The exterior of the Siberian Gloves feature silicone grippers at the fingers and palm, and the pointer fingers and thumbs are also smartphone compatible. The wrists use a Velcro closure system to keep water out, and the back of the hand has received a reflective treatment for safer night riding.
The Craft Siberian Gloves are available in sizes from X-Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Amino and Black/bright red.
Keep your digits happy on blustery, damp rides. Wear the windproof, water-resistant Craft Bike Siberian soft-shell bike gloves with fleece lining for warmth.

I ordered these as well as the Louis Garneau shield gloves. I returned the LGs because the Craft gloves just felt warmer and better made. I use these gloves on my commute to work even when it is in the 30's and they keep my fingers nice and warm. They have a nice long collar that does a good job of covering the break between your jacket and glove. I am very happy with these gloves.
These gloves are not waterproof. After 10 minutes in the rain, my hands were soaked.
Also, after one use, the conductive fingertips stopped working. It was a huge bummer.
The gloves are also too warm for biking in weather over 35�F
I think the gloves are too tight.
Take away: I suggest trying them on first. Other than that they are solid gloves.
(I ordered them online without trying them on, nor did I chose to send back). For a 5'10" 160 lb guy my hands are not big. Most things I buy are medium, but I bought a Large. All us winter adventure folks know tight socks mean cold toes. Same goes for these gloves.
(P.S. I when to a store recently and tried other sizes and brands, they all seem too tight. However XXL seem to be OK, fingers a little long. XXL on a medium guy with small hands? Come on. )
