I went with these gloves because they were low-profile, waterproof, and didn't look too busy. The fit in the cuff is a bit on the snug side, requiring a small effort to get them on, but I appreciate how low profile the cuff is once you strap the velcro. Once my hand is situated, I find them comfortable and the dexterity is relatively high; the leather palm helps keep them super flexible. I haven't noticed any real issues with water getting to my hands, but I will say these gloves are definitely better suited for mild weather. I wish they kept my hands warmer when the temperature drops below 30, but they're not actually rated for colder temperatures so I can't fault them for this (it's called the "spring glove" after all). If you live in a climate where the temperature rarely drops below 30, then these are all-around great. I don't regret buying the pair, but they can barely handle the typical extremes of a New England winter.
