I wouldn't usually start a thread to gripe about a product, but I think my complaint about this item rises to the level where it should be discussed openly.
I bought a pair of BMW Summer Pro 2 gloves last season. I have worn them many dozens of times over the past year, whenever weather conditions allow. They are really only useable between about 55 and 80 degrees, being far too light for cooler weather and far too hot for warmer temps without causing profuse sweating.
Last week, I wore these gloves in the rain for the first time. They were soaked, through and through, in five miles. It wasn't from rain running down my sleeves, either. These are genuine Gore Tex lined gloves! There is no excuse for leaking gloves.
My buddy, too, owns a pair, and he, too, experiences wetting. His are so poorly constructed that one of his fingers poked through the lining of one of the gloves.
Since these gloves are over a year old, I have no recourse, but what I do have is the power of the purse. BMW puts their logo on this and a plethora of other riding gear. I am in the market for a riding suit and I will head straight for Aerostitch, bypassing the BMW stuff (which I actually like much better). I think the 'Stitch stuff is pretty bland looking by comparison, but that's very subjective. I want quality and I'm not about to experiment with thousand-dollar bills.
BMW probably pays all of $5 to $10 a pair for these gloves, sewn in China, and marks them up to the dealer who probably adds 100 percent markup from wholesale. I have gloves that cost 1/4 as much as these and have outperformed them. These gloves are really junk. I'm beyond disappointed, I'm annoyed (mostly at myself) for buying into the hype that they should be high quality merchandise because they have the BMW logo.
