I did manage one really good long ride though and when I say good, it was only really the journey there. An earlier rain shower and damp greasy roads meant the ride back was one of restraint rather than one of progress.
In the few rides I've had, I've been able to pull together some further thoughts on my Held Twin gloves. Their construction is good and, despite some contrary opinions, the visor wipe is excellent. As one would expect for the money, they have remained waterproof and there is nothing to suggest otherwise. Using the thicker 'warm' chamber there is still plenty of feel for the controls and I don't feel they are restricting my movement too badly. Yes, if I compare them to my A-stars GP gloves, its like night and day, but for a bulky winter glove, its acceptable. Sadly though, I am disappointed with the amount of warmth they provide, especially around the end of my fingers.
Since leaving London at the end of 2015, I no longer ride in sub-zero temperatures. Any signs of a deep frost is too risky, especially if riding on exposed country roads, and doubly so with a safer alternative available. If the temp is above 4 degrees, I'm usually good to go, come rain or shine. I don't have heated grips installed, so when riding out in temperatures of around 6-7 degrees, getting cold fingers is noticeable, surprising and ultimately, disappointing.
I'll experiment using both chambers of the glove (they come with a dry and a warm labels) to see if there is any real noticeable difference and its user error rather than the glove and continue to update you with my findings.
