Packs away super tight and light. Perfect for any ride with a chance of rain. I put my phone in my one of my summer jersey pockets and this gore winstopper in another. During a downpour I'd pulled the windstopper out and kept my phone in my back jersey. Rain passed and my phone stayed dry under the jacket.
The gloves look good and appear to be well made, with extra cuff, nose wipe panel, padding and device friendly. I use these gloves on my early morning rides. Winter at 5am in Southern California I.E. gets down to the mid 30s, low 40s. Bought the gloves just for that and in the beginning of each ride my hands are fine but after 20 miles with 20 more to go my fingertips are starting to hurt. Most bike wear is made longer because your riding in a stretched out position and I really appreciate that since I'm 6'-6 and 240lbs. When I buy the XLXXL gloves they shouldn't just be wider - they also need to have longer fingers.
