Those Giros Xnetics are great. However, I also have a pair of these Leatt SubZeros, so here's the head to head: Giro Xnetic wins for waterproofness and have a slight edge on warmth. I'd give them the edge in comfort as well - the Leatts have seams in the fingers that you can feel, which isn't uncomfortable, but is noticeable. The Giros are like socks for your hands. Leatt SubZero wins for dexterity and fit. I know I said the Giros win on comfort - and they do - but the Leatts' form-fitting design and thinner membrane is better for grip and brake lever sensitivity. They're both fantastic for cool weather riding. Neither is a cold weather glove, although I'd wear the Giros down to -8 C or so. I think the Leatts start to get cold for me closer to -4.
