I've learned that waterproof jackets and pants don't mean a thing if your hands or feet are soaked. Got these before a long weekend of riding, and they saved my bacon during one afternoon of blistering storms. Gloves underneath were bone dry. Well worth it in my opinion. I ordered a size up than what was suggested, and it was a good move. Only down side is that you expose your lobster claw when doing the biker wave. (Posted on 10/16/11)
I've finally purchased a product that is indeed waterproof. I've gone through 5 different sets of advertised "waterproof" gloves in various styles and manufacturers and not one of them was waterproof. My recent purchase of the Triple Digit Rain Covers was tested on a two day ride which covered over 1,100 miles in heavy rain. As the temperature dropped, I switched from regular gloves underneath the Triple Digits covering to winter riding gloves underneath. Hands and gloves remained completely dry for the entire ride. Fantastic! (Posted on 10/5/11)
I recently purchased these glove covers for a September ride from Iowa to Lake Tahoe via Denver and Las Vegas. Although I had hoped to not use them, I unpacked and wore them over my riding gloves several times during some bad storms. When riding the I-70 through Colorado and Utah I spent about 3 hours in a heavy, cold rain. My fingers and hands? Warm and dry, for a very welcome change. (Posted on 10/1/11)
The Aerostich Triple Digit Rain Covers are awesome. the quality is supreme and I gave them a good test during a four hour long ride in the rain, after the 2011 Labor Day weekend. The rain was extremely heavy at many times even covering some roads with puddles right up to the crest of double yellow line. My hands stayed warm and comfortable. The Covers repelled the rain and at the same time let my hands breath during this long arduous ride. (Posted on 9/19/11)
Purchased these before a four-day trip up into Quebec. We encountered three days of partial rain and the gloves worked fantastic. I didn't wear gloves under them and found the straps easy to operate. My hands were perfectly dry and comforable. I choose the orange ones and they stand out very well in inclement weather, adding a bit to my visibility. These things are bombproof. Next time I'm shopping for outerwear, I'll look at Aerostich first. (Posted on 9/6/11)
I purchased these for a long trip. I have never been lucky with having waterproof gloves actually work more than once or twice. In addition, most waterproof gloves are insulated and bulky and not what I want when the temperature is in the 90's. During my 2 weeks and 3000 miles on the road, I got stuck in 4 heavy rains. Each time, my hands stayed dry. I am pleased with these gloves. The rest of my rain gear failed so by the 4th storm, the only part of me that remained dry was my hands.
I will follow the instructions to maintain the waterproof seams so these last.
They worked well and it was nice to be able to use my summer gloves under them in the rain instead of switching to bulkier gloves that leak. Not to mention, they pack down to almost nothing so it helped with traveling light. (Posted on 8/18/11)
I purchased these because I have had bad luck with gloves that say they are waterproof and are really not. I was on a 3000 mile trip recently and hit some hard rain 4 different times during my 2 week trip. My hands were the only part of me that stayed dry. The rest of my rain gear failed miserably, but these gloves did their job. I will follow the instructions for maintaining and keeping the seams waterproof to ensure they continue to do their job.

I used these gloves for the first time yesterday and have to say that they did not work at all. Now it might have been user error or a complete product failure?
I rode from West Virgina to New Jersey in torrential rain and my hands were wet after the first 20 minutes. I did not follow any instructions to water proof them because i assumed that they worked out of the box!!!
Now I did have the gloves on the outside of my jacket as shown in the video which might explain the water problem but it would be nearly impossible get all of the glove inside my jacket especially for the left hand.
