Designed to prevent your fingers from turning into icicles on cold-weather rides, the Louis Garneau Men's Bigwill Gloves offer protection from wind, rain and chilly temps while ensuring warmth and high levels of breathability. The breathable, tear-resistant Enertec softshell construction sheds light precipitation while allowing internal moisture to escape during the ride, and 200 grams of Polartec Alpha insulation delivers warmth for a cozy grip on the otherwise frozen handlebar. Then, the Aerogel palm insulation is ultra-thin and compression-resistant to maintain warm comfort and its ergo grip without sacrificing performance.

This was a blind purchase. No reviews for this new product. I bought on spec alone - Polartech Alpha 200g insulation and Aerogel padding on the palms - and I chose very, very well. Living in Wisconsin I've struggled to keep my hands warm on road rides when it gets below 30 degrees.
The Big Will gloves have been great for long endurance rides on days between 20 and 25 degrees. More surprisingly, they've been great for high intensity intervals on cold days. No clammy hands or overheating.
The best part of the glove is how good they feel on the bars. It's tough to find an insulated glove that gives decent dexterity and grip on drop bars. These have been pretty perfect. No problem shifting or braking with SRAM levers and a solid grip on the bars.
These gloves are pretty awesome. I'm rarely this enthusiastic about a product, but these are the real deal.
