- Best winter glove I've ownedReview by Jason
As someone who rides year round, winter gloves are a must. I also didn't want to break the bank with some of the more pricey gloves so I chose these. So far, I have not been disappointed.
They have proven to be waterproof, and even come with a little rubber squeegee attached to the pointer finger of the left hand glove to aid with clearing your visor while riding. I didn't find it that helpful and continued to resort to the full hand wipe as it seems to work better in wet conditions. And although I don't make it a habit to ride in the rain, I do ride in sub freezing temperatures regularly. This is where these gloves shine. They have handled the temperatures very well and only on longer trips have I noticed my hands (fingertips) beginning to get that tingling cold feeling.
As for comfort. They did take a couple hundred miles worth of riding to break in, but once they did, I have't noticed their bulk and they continue fit great. I wear a medium in most other gloves and these are no different.
I would highly recommend these, although I do have one complaint. They have begun to rip at the seam on the left hand thumb. Which so far, hasn't compromised their functionality, but I'm afraid they're going to come apart more, now that a tear has appeared. Time will tell.
Still, I'd buy these again. (Posted on 1/18/16)
- Great Winter GlovesReview by John
- I got these in the fall for all round cold weather use. They are very warm for Maine winter riding (when the roads allow!) but are excellent for all other typical winter activities. I have used them in 0F blizzard conditions and they kept my hands warm. The cuffs seal up well and come way up the arm. I typically wear an XL and the size XL seems right on. There is room for a light liner as well though I have not needed to use those yet. These are as good as anything from Marmot, North Face, Patagonia, etc at half the price. (Posted on 2/3/15)
- Cold Weather Waterproof Glove Review by Jax9200
- The gloves are a great value...and they keep my hands and fingers warm. The gauntlet style also keeps the wind from coming up my jacket sleeves. (Posted on 4/9/14)
- Warm But BigReview by LL
- Warm, a big bulky at first, most likely better after breaking in. These are men's sized gloves, for fat palms. I used the sizing guide to order, and since I have women's thinner hands, the gloves are too big. I will definitely exchange for smaller size, they are comfy and keep the cold rain out well.

- Great gloves above 32FReview by Daryl
- I've rode with these gloves for two winters now. They are 100% waterproof. They will keep my hands warm down to 32. Colder than that and my thumbs and fingertips can get painfully cold on the Interstate. But they are a tough protective waterproof glove with a generous gauntlet. Great for non-freezing wet/dry weather for sure. (Posted on 12/19/13)
- Good glovesReview by emankciN
- So far, best winter gloves I've owned. My fingers still get cold and start to get numb in 30/40 degree weather, but they don't get painfully cold and numb! They are bulky, but the insulation/shell don't have a "sloppy" fit like other gloves I've had (where you loose throttle response when the shell doesn't move with the insulation). My only complaint is the wiper catches on my clutch lever housing often. Wish they would have put the wiper on the outside of the thumb where it wouldn't catch on anything. (Posted on 11/29/12)
- Ride up AlcanReview by William
- Just rode to Alaska from Montana with these gloves. Hands cramped at first but gradually got used to them. Very warm and kept my hands dry. Only had low in the forties and rain near Whitehorse, Yukon so don't know if good any colder. Well made! Would recommend. (Posted on 7/5/12)
- Agreed - warm but bulkyReview by throw2k
Took them out in drizzle today for 30 minutes. Waterproof? My hands were totally dry at the end of the ride. Warm? Yes. Finger squeegee is nice, build quality looks good. Gaunlets are long, but tucked easily inside my jacket.
Cons: bulky for sure, I felt a bit sketchy on the front brake as a result, just had to be extra careful. This may just be all heavily insulated cold weather gloves though.
Will they keep my hands warm & dry? Probably. But have to get used to the feel. (Posted on 4/1/12)
- Warm, but bulkyReview by Tim
- Warm but bulky. Or bulky but warm. Anyway, they keep my hands warm but make operating clutch/brake slightly more difficult. Run small. (Posted on 2/24/12)
- Best cold weather glove, but not quite as picturedReview by Martin
First, I have to say that this is the warmest motorcycle (or general purpose) glove I've ever owned. It's perfect for NYC winters, and it's half the price of an all-hide gauntlet. Leather is great but gore-tex is the way of the future for warm, weatherproof gear.
The glove fits a little snug... I am right between a S and an M and went with the small. Snug is warmer than loose, though, and a loose glove makes manipulating controls harder, so I made the right choice. As mentioned below, there is so much warm padding in this glove that it gets more flexible as you break it in. Nice curved fingers, abrasion reinforcement, and a squeegee make it clear that this is a motorcycle glove that happens to be very warm, not vice versa. (Posted on 1/20/12)

Sidebar: Mr. Subjective on ‘Waterproof-insert’ Gloves - rev 2017
Almost all factory waterproof riders gloves contain a thin and somewhat fragile waterproof insert located between the glove’s lining and the outer glove. Separated, these inserts look like oversize five fingered plastic food-service glove-bags made of very thin, flexible plastic - usually less than the thickness of a sandwich bag, which means that after some period of use they can be torn, punctured or damaged before the rest of the glove wears out. At which point one owns a formerly waterproof glove.
I’m old-school. Two things I've disliked about every insert-equipped waterproof glove I've ever tried are:
- 1.) When it’s not raining no glove of this type ever wears quite as dry-feeling and moisture-breathable as gloves with no insert so my hands never are quite as comfortably dry as they are inside regular leather gloves. My hands don’t sweat excessively, but this sensation of trapped moisture is noticeable and mildly disconcerting on a hot dry day. Inserts made of Gore Tex do feel a bit better than other types, but all provide this same moist-handed feel. One rider I knew whose hands did sweat a lot ended up with a non-Gore Tex model of this type which actually became so smelly/moldy inside he ended up throwing them away. Most riders get used to the slightly moist feel and love these kinds of gloves.
- 2.) All waterproof-breathable inserts add a slight bulkier, slipperier feel. No matter how thin the insert, the glove’s three layers (outer, insert, lining) shift slightly between each other as you flex and grip things. After a short while you become accustomed to this sensation, but (like the moisture feel) it never entirely goes away. When your hand is inside a simple unlined deer or elk glove the increased direct tactile feel is noticeable.
On the plus side, waterproof-breathable inserts make any glove a little warmer. The ones we sell which offer some insert-provided waterproofness are: the Luxury Cowhide Winter #447, $197, and the Cowhide/Nylon Winter #1489, $75, plus these electrically heated models #4468, #4469, #4448-5448. They are all excellent for wet weather, but if I’m traveling somewhere that involves riding more than an hour I’m usually wearing a non-waterproof elk skin glove and carrying triple digit raincovers (#442 & #492, $47).
For everyday urban rides under about 30 minutes, even if it’s raining fairly hard I’ll usually just let my hands become wet inside regular elk or deer gloves. They’ll also occasionally get wet on trips if the rain is intermittent and I don’t feel like stopping to put on glove raincovers. Pre-applied water-resistant leather treatments make a huge difference in most of these milder rains and shorter and moderate-length wet weather exposures.
