Thumbs down Motoboss Orion review

"Regularly" $50, these can be found "on sale" for $35. They are cheap, no doubt about it. The fingers are stiff and are not precurved, so wrapping your fingers around a handlebar is not very comfortable. With fingers curled they're aren't terribly warm, either, as there are knuckle folds in the leather that open up to allow for flex and these open folds allow the wind to carry away more heat.

The cuffs are elastic + velcro adjustable and are large enough to go over your motorcycle jacket sleeve to keep the wind out, but only barely in my case.

The suede index fingers are nice for wiping water off of face shields.

They are waterproof, but this can also be a curse as they tend to accumulate moisture on the inside which cannot easily escape. A damp glove liner makes for very cold fingers in wintertime (water is an excellent conductor of heat), but this is probably an issue for any waterproof glove.

In short, they're not really comfortable enough to use in warmer weather, and not really warm enough to use in colder weather, so they have little to recommend them.
