I just picked a pair of these up a couple weeks ago along with the tusk grip heaters (sale price was excellent). I had them on for the commute at 39F last week and they seem to help a lot. I'm not convinced they're water proof and I'm tempted to sew some thicker fleece into them in the future.

I find that summer gloves are still a little thin under 45 degrees (but I have poor circulation in my fingers and toes) so I'm going to take the insulation out of the palms of my winter gloves and see if I can actually get my hands sweaty in below 40 temps. I currently can't even feel the grip heaters through them.
