The gloves provided ample warmth on moderate to chilly days, and I used them from freezing to around 70 degrees, albeit my hands got slightly sweaty at the higher temperatures. For a glove of this design, they are very breathable, which helps extend their functionality, comfort and temperature range. I think they are a great glove for cross seasons, early morning and late evening rides, and as a backup glove for the high country, or whenever inclement weather might be encountered. They are out of their realm on bitter cold days, but they were never designed for the extremes at either end of the temperature spectrum. On colder days just below freezing, I would insert some hand warmers into the gloves above my knuckles, for some added warmth.
They run small, so you need to get one size up over your default size for correct fitting. They are a pretty substantial glove, so it took a couple of weeks to break in and feel comfortable, else they felt tight. I noticed that after several months of abusive use (I am extra tough on gloves), the gloves got baggy around the fingers and the palm, so they felt sloppy sometimes.
The Jett Combat Ice Glove is warm and water resistant, and shines in conditions of cold to moderate temperatures and weather, and it’s extremely durable, comfortable, and has a good tactile feel for its toughness. The back insulation provided warmth and comfort, and adds additional armor protection for trees and bushes. Small features like the pre-curve shape, soft inside, elongated wrist and Velcro closure add great functions to the glove. After a long period of use, the backside of the fingers and palm can get baggy, and although the glove is breathable, it can get sweaty.
The ultra durable Jett Combat Ice Glove is a great cross season glove, which can be used for cold or inclement weather conditions any time of year, and is ideal as a backup for high country forays. Ice Ice Baby!
