Had them on for a few weeks so only time will tell."

How small does this pack down?

Will it fit in a jersey pocket?
if you mean a cycling jersey with a pocket in the back then its a bit of a squeeze! you might be able to force it in but you might be better off buying a light shell that packs down.

 SealSkinz Ultra Grip Gloves
SealSkinz Ultra Grip Gloves

Do these gloves have any cycle specific padding ?

From the photo it doesn't look like there is any padding around the palm area
there is no padding as such though the gloves are quite thick. the gloves do have a grippy texture on the palm and fingers. they are ideal for cycling and are ok down to about 5 oc.

which is the material of the rear? because i sweat a lot and I need that it protect my mobile of the sweat
yeah should think it would be ok; not sure bout rain though due to how the zip is fitted.

I normally have a T-Shirt or a base layer under the pouch.
