Aerostich Triple Digit Covers
- Product Review (submitted on April 13, 2012):
I've asked around for "waterproof gloves" for ages, and always got a blank stare at motorcycle shops - or they tried to sell me expensive gloves with attached rain covers that needed to be unzipped from a pocket, or non-motorcycle waterproof gloves without padding and protection. I knew exactly what I wanted - a waterproof shell to go over my quality leather riding gloves that keep my hand warm and protected.
Along comes Aerostitch, and voilà... it's exactly what you were looking for, and it does the job.
I agree with the criticisms:
1. They are sized too small. This is the biggest drawback. The manufacturer seems to forget that these go over gloves, not over bare hands. I can't get mine over my Gerbing heated gloves, which are NOT waterproof.
2. The straps on the back are clumsy to tie and keep in their loops, and really unnecessary in my opinion. I cut mine off with a scissors after being distracted by them dangling in the wind.
3. I think they're a bit pricey, but considering the absence of competition and that they were smart enough to fill this obvious and long-anticipated need, they deserve what they ask for 'em!
I recommend getting two pairs. Everyone will want to borrow them and I've lost one pair that way already ;-)
