The Santini 365 Origine Long Finger Gloves are “winter gloves providing warmth in a breathable design resistant to water and wind,” according to the Italian brand. There’s no temperature range supplied, but the 365 Origines are slightly heavier and warmer than many of the lightweight, low-bulk winter gloves we’re seeing at the moment, but not quite thick enough to qualify as a deep-winter glove. If you’re surprised at the thinness of some of the current crop of ‘winter’ gloves but don’t want to go full ski glove, these could be the ones. I would say their lower temperature limit is around zero, but they're not thick enough for proper frosty mornings.
