Thermal Motorcycle Gloves
Thermal motorbike gloves
A few issues.
First off, an excellent service from Sportsbikeshop. I'm not convinced the gloves would be cut out for serious exposure to cold. Also, the gauntlets are neither big enough to fit over my jacket sleeves and too big to comfortably fit under my jacket. They either need to be larger or smaller.Richard - Woking
Polar, I don't think so
After my Weise winter gloves split down the seam (again), I thought it was time to purchase a new pair that were more robust and somewhat warmer. Cue the Alpinestars Polar Gore-tex gloves...super warm; totally waterproof and sexy to boot. Or so you would think, considering the hefty price tag. They do actually look nice, but they're a swine to initially get over your hands, which is surprising, as I bought the next size up. I can't comment on how waterproof they are, as I haven't been caught in a downpour yet. I can, however, comment on the thermal properties, as I've worn them during my daily commute to work. They're not much of an improvement to my old pair to be honest, because my fingers become cold after 10 minutes of riding on those cold, crispy, frosty mornings. Can't say I'm overly impressed in that sense, but at least they haven't split (yet). Should have gone to Specsavers.Stephen Seymour - Cleckheaton
Nice and comfy
Gloves always seem to be hit or miss for me when it comes to sizes and no different with Spada. The XL was massive and had to exchange using the excellent free SBS postal returns service. Large is really nice and comfy. Lots of adjustment at the wrist for jacket. Grip seems ok. Too early to tell re waterproof level. Additionally, Spada have a 2 year warranty on these gloves, so at the moment they seem very good value for money.Michael W - Amersham
