"I have had a few pairs of these of the years and they always perform ok. these gloves are waterproof but when the temp goes below 5 oc then my hands get very cold.
I did notice however that the thermal rating was 2 so I should have ordered a more winter orientated pair.
the orange colour gets dirty quick though drivers notice my hand signals now :)"
Pros: Durable
Cons: Expensive

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.

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.

is waterproof to sweat?

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.
