Giordana has designed its Tri-Season Winter Gloves to do just what the name implies: be suitable for use in three seasons out of the year. Intentionally versatile, this Giordana model has been made to be effective, though not overwhelming, in a variety of temperature conditions. The back of the hand has the same attention to wind protection as their Nordic Gloves, but it has been given an Amara faux leather palm to keep them even more breathable. Amara leather is noted also for its durability and longevity, which means that these gloves will be able to take a serious beating, whether you are continually wiping you tires for glass on your in-town rides, or you find yourself hitting the pavement after sliding out on some ice: these palms will withstand the wear and tear.
To keep them comfortable, gel padding has been included at the most important pressure points, so if you take these on your Spring trip to ride some of the Tour of Flanders roads, they'll deflect some of that incessant vibration jarring you to death, especially your hands. Silicone grippers will keep your fingers’ dexterity at an acceptable level. Velcro fasteners at the wrist will hold these gloves snugly in place and close off the wrists as a cold weather entry point. Reflective elements have been included to keep you visible during the times of low level lighting.
The Giordana Tri-Season Winter Gloves are available in Black and come in sizes Small through X-Large.
I live in Virginia, where we have a true four-season climate - these gloves seem like they will live up to their tri-season name. Good buy!
I've used them driving my truck & riding my bikes .. keep my fingers warm & have good padding in palms
I got the gloves thru spring sale. I used them 4-5 times due the 2013 fall (I live in SoCal) and the gloves start to fell apart. The stiches on the bottom of the gloves coming out. After I checked the label I discovered ? made in China and not in Italy as expected. Agree with jimp674304. Sorry it is too late to send back. Don't buy it.
I wore these gloves once and the stitching was coming undone in 2 places. The gloves are great but the quality control leaves a lot to be desired. The quality of the jerseys and bibs they make in their own factory in Italy has been awesome but these gloves they sell that are made in China are not up to Giordana standards.
as the other poster implies, the stitching issue became apparent quickly. Luckily, though, the issue on mine was down at the bottom of the cuff, so it's not something that really affects my usage. Been using for a year now and it hasn't really gotten worse.
I don't have experience with other gloves of this ilk, so take this with a grain of salt, but i've been really happy with these...seems to work well for temps from mid 20s to high 50s, which is an impressive range (i hate hot hands, perhaps even more than cold hands). beware though, on nights down in the teens my hands have been FREEZING after a couple miles, had to start breaking out the ski gloves. other complaint is that theres a protruding seam on the inside of the glove that runs up the base of my thumb that becomes a little uncomfortable on rides over 20-30 mins...whenever i take the gloves off you can see the print in the skin where the seam is. oh, finally, i have XLs and they are (perfectly) snug on me...I'm 6ft average weight and plain L in almost everything.
