Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rapha - Merino Gloves I took my first test ride with these gloves last week when the temperature was in the low sixties and wind was blowing 8 miles an hour. I found finger portion of the gloves thin and my hands got cold. I tend to have cold hands but the Merino Gloves did not help me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing glove for early winter riding! I live in Norway, and already own (and love) the winter gloves - but the merino gloves are warm enough obove zero, and have a light feel to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Fit, Perfect for Cool Rides Gloves fit amazing, and rigidity of palm leather prevents them from bunching and pulling. Other gloves I have owned do not compare to this product. Breathable and light, so not the best for those really cold mornings, but greater for mild fall temperatures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and warm Great gloves for spring and fall riding. Perfect for conditions from about +2 C to +10 C. Lack of windproofing on the back means that they aren't appropriate when temperatures get to freezing or below.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Was a bit skeptical but pleasantly surprised. Great quality, solid grip in cool, dry weather. Cleaned easily, can tell will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is my second pair of merino gloves as the first wore out. Comfortable with great grip, let use a merino liner glove for colder days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality early winter glove. Bought as an early winter/spring weather glove and fits the bill nicely. Combined with some thin silk liners when the thermometer drops works well. Cuffs a little on the large side for me (medium) but I guess if you wear your jersey cuffs under the glove it would probably snug it up a touch. Good feel and fit, however I can't help wishing they were a smidge more padded than they are. They are good, but for me, would feel so much more comfortable and assured with a Grand tour glove style padding to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cooler rides I've struggled to find the 'perfect' cold weather gloves and whilst these gloves don't tick all the boxes, they are a good autumn/spring weather. They aren't too bulky and are nicely moulded to suit the riding hand position. Road them in 13 degree weather and my hands did get chilled from the rain (I knew they weren't waterproof) but my hands didn't feel painful. Will use them where I know I won't get too hot and need to take them off and carry as they will be bulky in a jersey pocket.

Hello I'm usually a size 8 for most gloves; would you recommend a small or medium?

Asked by: Anon1975
Hi, you are in a slight overlap between sizes but we would recommend you choose a medium. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.
