- I have found these hard t...Review by John Fisher
- I have found these hard to work with when wearing gloves. The velco strap is not long enough and pops out of its connection. I use them without gloves, but that is not good in the colder months and also of course in a dismount. If they velco straps were about 2 or 3 inches longer it wouldn't be a problem. I called aerostitch and they cannot correct it. Hopefully, down the road they will just add the extend the straps. (Posted on 6/2/09)

- I've used these for a few years and they've always kept my hands and gloves dry. They pack very small, so it's easy to keep them on your bike and have dry gloves after an unexpected rain shower. I totally agree with the comments about the retention strap being too short, Aerostitch should fix that immediately. Other than that major flaw (Posted on 6/2/09)

- Last year we revised the strap set-up on these rain covers. The wrist strap was lengthened, and the end of the strap is now sewn over in a way that helps prevent it from passing through the tightening loop. (Posted on 6/2/09)

- I have had a pair of these for at least 10 years. I agree with Randy "My pet peeve with this product is that the wrist retention strap can slip out of its d-ring as you put them on." I solved this problem by having my wife sew a blace button on the strap so it cannot pull thru the d-ring. Wear your regular gloves and slide these over them for rain. They have always kept my hands dry.- Keith Henline Friday, Septemaber 7, 2007 (Posted on 6/2/09)
- 500 miles of pouring rain...Review by william morris
- 500 miles of pouring rain from Deals Gap, NC to Hattiesburg, MS last month...not a leak, not a drip. Perfect. Hard to get on and off over your gloves and forget manipulating anything...but what can you expect? The closures are easy to use and the shield wiper is acceptable. I was dry when I arrived----definitely recommended (Posted on 5/12/09)

- Rode from Leadville, CO to Colorado Springs last Sept. Poured rain and was in the 30s all the way I had my frogg toggs on and these gloves. The only thing wet was my feet, my motocross boots aren't waterproof, as I unfortunately found out. I swear by these and my friends have bought them based on my recommendation (Posted on 2/7/09)
- I have been lucky enough ...Review by Randy Mattran
- I have been lucky enough not to need to use these much, but they do work. Decent rain protection, additional warmth, etc. Nice sewing. They definitely reduce dexterity. You wonât be able to count any change, but you will be able to operate levers. Small packing size means they always get thrown in. My pet peeve with this product is that the wrist retention strap can slip out of its d-ring as you put them on. Threading the strap back in to the ring is a little tedious, and may require teeth and other crude implements of improvisation once your hands are turned into lobster claws. I had a seamstress sew tabs on the end of my straps to eliminate this problem. I have suggested this fix to Aerostich, and assume they will address the issue at some point. (Posted on 10/16/08)
- I bought these gloves abo...Review by Clark Wallin
- I bought these gloves about a year ago. They work great as an outer wind glove in cool/cold and damp weather. They also have worked great in light rain, fog, and mist. The first time I rode in extended heavy rain I experienced leakage, but then I rode for over 5 hours in driving downpour after driving downpour down I81 and through N Carolina to a BMW ralley at High Country Morotcycle Camp. My hands were soaked, but then so was everything else even under my rainsuit. (Everyone else was too, I might add.) Since then I have sealed the seams and they seem to work well, but I do experience some leakage down the sleeves. I would buy them again. (Posted on 9/9/08)

- Very well made. Used several times in the rain and never a leak. When it's extremely cold out, can be used as an over-glove. (Posted on 8/31/08)

As a moto-journalist, I have chances to test out a whole lot more gear than most people. And these are one of the most innovative pieces of raingear I've come across in 15 years of riding.
Simply put, they work. The strap system is a breeze to use, even with gloved hands; more thought was put into ease of use on these gloves than in any two other rain products I've dealth with in my time as a rider.
I'm not kind to my gear, and I've had a set of these glove covers for over 5 years, used for commuting and travel in San Diego, LA, and the SF Bay area (where we get a LOT of rain). It's hard to tell them from new, even with tens of thousands of rain riding miles on them. And I get all the protection of my quality gloves without having to sacrifice crash survivability to get durability, waterproofness, and lack of bulk. At $47, they're a tremendous bargain.
So what are you waiting for? Order a pair already! ;) (Posted on 4/5/08)
