They are really like wearing regular golf gloves. They aren't good when it is both cold AND wet. I have worn them to play in 5 degree weather, dry and as long as I keep moving they are fine. The grip is decent enough so I didn't need to make any adjustments. Good for casual rounds. I'm not sure if I would wear mine during a tournament.

The break in period is minimal. Give it a hole or two. You won't need to season them like a baseball glove.

I haven't tried friction gloves yet but I have been wearing mechanics gloves for the last two years. I got used to throwing with them last winter and just kept wearing them throughout the year. It's the same grip every time no matter if it's dry, humid, cold or rainy. The synthetic leather provides good grip even when wet, but in heavy rain they can get a little slippery if completely soaked.

I've used a Friction Glove for the last two years. They make a huge difference when it's cold, as you don't really need to adjust your grip at all from a normal throw. They're warmer than bare skin, but not quite as warm as a regular glove. Still, at this point I wouldn't consider playing a round without them in sub-40F temperatures (20kg for you metric types).

You must be some sort of wizard. I didn't know it was possible to convert Fahrenheit to kilograms.
