Tried pi lobster gloves with a thin inner cloth glove (cotton, not good for winter), Sturmfist blows these away for warmth. Has much better insulation, wind barrier, and has inner wool glove. My hands always froze below 30 oF, now they don't with Sturmfist.
Quick shipping. Gloves are great. You can just use the wool liner when warmer out. When it gets very cold the complete glove works great. I got the largest size even the when measuring my hand it was 9.5 inches around. If undecided on size opt for the larger.
I ride on the roads in SE Minnesota, and these are awesome. I have gone on 40 mile rides with temps in the teens and gusty winds, and these keep my fingers warm. They also have the dexterity you can't get from a lobster-claw, as they allow me to peel and eat a banana on the fly.
