Use Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Softshell Lite Gloves for cool weather and as extra insurance against an unexpected storm. They're not too heavy, but are warm enough for all but the coldest days. Their P.R.O. Softshell fabric offers excellent wind and water protection, while the soft interior feels great against the skin. The palms are made of Pittard's WR100X Natural Carbon Leather which offers excellent grip and handlebar feel. And, extended wrists make sure that cold air stays out.
Purchased this glove as a liner and to use on cooler days between the lobsters in the winter and the open finger gloves of the summer.
Unfortunately the glove is suited to no season whatsoever as it is not warm enough to use as a liner in the winter, nor is it water resistant or wind resistant to use as a stand alone glove in the fall.
In short this glove serves as both a poor liner and stand alone glove in anything but the most optimal conditions.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
