    Anyone use Pearl Izumi Gavia Gloves?

    Can anyone offer feedback/reviews of the Pearl Izumi Gavia gloves? Temps during my winter commute are typically in the teens (fahrenheit). During the coldest weather I use Pearl Izumi Inferno gloves, and like them. The Gavia seems to fill the gap somewhere between mild cold and extreme cold. Anyone tried them?

    I have the Cyclone gloves and my housemate has the Gavias. Temperature and waterproof-wise, they're the same. The Gavia has a zipper. It allows water to leak in and you get wetter faster. My Cyclone gloves don't do that.

They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Rain isn't much of a consideration where I am. Fact is, I left Portland to get away from it. But I was also chased out of P-town by an angry mob during a Providence Bridge Pedal because I was taking pictures using a disposable camera. Very uncool of me. Thought I was going to be tarred and feathered (in feathers voluntarily given up in a cruelty-free aviary, of course). I like Portland a lot, spent a lot of time there back in the day.
