Not as good as genuine Shimano cleats

" I was excited to try these as I'm a big fan of Lifeline products. However, I was really disappointed. They have extremely poor engagement when compared to genuine Shimano cleats. They struggle to engage on my 105 pedals, taking several attempts and a large amount force to engage properly with the pedal.
I gave up on these after 1 ride and switched back to my well used Shimano cleats which were far better.
Genuine Shimano cleats are better value and only a fraction more on Wiggle.
"
Cons: Poor Fit, poor engagement

 DeFeet Dura Cycling Gloves
DeFeet Dura Cycling Gloves
A versatile seamless, full-fingered glove with a close fit for just about any cold-weather activity. Dura gloves can be worn as a glove liner in cold conditions or alone on mild morning rides. A year-round essential.
 

Would this be suitable in morning temperatures from 3 to 10 degrees. Worried about getting cold fingers on fast descents.

I used these on a cold Canberra evening in these temperatures (footy training, not cycling) and they did a great job.
