    Waterproof gloves

    Has anyone got any recommendations for gloves that offer decent protection, keep your hands dry and donít cost an arm and a leg? My Cortech Scarabs are OK in light rain but give up in a downpour. Plus theyíre hot ( although they arenít once your hands get soaked!).

    You could try these: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...r-n-dry-gloves

    I've had the BMW Motorrad Version of this glove, which is also made by Held. It's a two-compartment glove...one for when it's dry and one when it's wet (Gore-Tex). I've found that I have to use waterproofing on the back of the glove to keep the leather from soaking up the rain. They also have a shield-wiper/squeegee on the left index finger.

    I've had them for about 40K miles of riding. I have some ventilated Held Gloves for dry weather.

    Probably a bit pricey, but they are effective.

    Here's the BMW version: https://www.shopbmwmotorcycles.com/p...oveTwoOne.html. $50US cheaper.

    I have a set of Aerostich Triple Digit covers for my regular gloves. They've served me will. About the only issue, somewhat minor, is that water can collect and drain down the riding suit and into the covers. That happens if the covers are on the outside of the sleeves...I suppose if I worked harder at it, I could get the covers under the covers. But would the rain then run up instead?? Not sure about things. At any rate, the covers work pretty well.

    I have had these for several years, but maybe because of my small hands, they are always awkward for me to use. I do however over manage to get the covers over my sleeves but I always have difficulty doing up the second glove.

    As I recall, the instructions that came with mine, stated to waterproof them before use.

    In the colder wet weather, I use my Gerbings, which came stating that they were waterproof. After a few years, I called Gerbings to inquire if any additional measures were needed to keep them waterproof. The answer I received at the time was to annually apply waterproofing material to them.

    For the past number of summers I used a summer pair of Held gloves that I sprayed with waterproofing each riding season. Now I wear a warm and dry pair of Held gloves. As of yet, no additional waterproofing has been needed.

    Cheers!

    Well timed post as I just finished researching the same issue. I have a pair of Alpinestar "Drystar" gloves that I got to test in a good soaking rain the other day. Dry my arse. 40 minutes and they were SOAKED.

    I've got a pair of Klim Vanguard short gloves coming in next week. I'll provide a direct evaluation of those when I get them. They are only $130 for Gore Tex which is pretty damned affordable given the brands involved (Gore and Klim).

    I have a pair of the BMW GS Dry Gloves and they will keep your hands dry.....if you ALWAYS wear them UNDER your cuff . However, when you pull them off and your hands get wet (as if you stop and go into a restaurant, etc.), they are extremely difficult to get back on. They are good for warmer weather but they are not warm at all. Also, I have a little trouble with the fingers of the left glove being slippery on the clutch lever , but it may be because my fingers are short and I don't get a good grip on the clutch to begin with. I have to be very aware of this when I wear them. They are well made, and are holding up well. I don't like for my hands to get wet, as it messes up my riding mojo.

    Stop most of the water before it hits your gloves! On and off in less than a minute. I've had these for years. Move from bike to bike. These particular ones require hand guards. There are many other brands to chose from.

    I'm getting my Klim gloves in today and will report on their effectiveness as well. Regarding the Aerostich's, it would be very interesting to know whether they prevent water from running down the sleeve of your jacket and entering the gloves that way. That's my presumption regarding gauntlet gloves in general so it'll be interesting to see if that applies to them. I really like Aerostich and these are inexpensive enough to make them very attractive.
