Five of the best Gore-Tex motorcycle gloves

9 Jun 2020
Updated: 3 Mar 2022 Anyone out there who enjoys riding with wet hands? Nope, thought not. Here’s your salvation…

We’ve all been there – putting our trust into the weather forecast only to hit dreaded showers along the way. 

Investing in a pair of Gore-Tex gloves from the start will eliminate future struggles, and guarantee dry digits all year round. 

Sure, they’re a little more expensive, but Sportsbikeshop customers insist these five gloves are worth the higher price tag…

Held Air N Dry Glove

Dual-chamber gloves allow you to switch from waterproof gloves to dry-weather gloves in seconds. Held’s Air n Dry are the most popular with an impressive 4.8-star average score from the first 121 reviews. Sportsbikeshop customers are impressed by their three-season ability (four if you have heated grips). They say the Gore-Tex lined ‘Dry’ side is surprisingly good for feel, but note the fingers in the ‘Air’ section feel a little shorter than on the Dry side. 

Richa Street Touring Gore-Tex Gloves

Richa’s Street Touring gloves have achieved RiDE Magazine Best Buy status and have amassed 64 reviews with a 4.7-star average from Sportsbikeshop customers in the process. Reviews praise their superior waterproofing, comfort and accurate fit, but recommend pairing them with an inner glove or heated grips during the winter due to a lack of a thermal lining.

Richa Atlantic GTX Glove

Richa say their Atlantic GTX gloves are the ultimate waterproof summer gloves, and with an average of 4.9 stars from the first 20 reviews, it seems our customers agree. Those of our first 20 reviewers unlucky enough to be caught in the rain have all been impressed by the waterproofing capabilities of the Gore-Tex waterproofing. The vast majority of customers also agree that these gloves are comfortable, if a little on the small side for the first few uses. 

Rukka Mars 2.0 Gore-Tex Gloves

If you’re looking for a waterproof glove that’s also good at keeping cold weather out, customers highly recommend the Rukka Mars 2.0. With a Gore-Tex lining, and fleece liner, reviewers have been impressed with the ability of these gloves to keep out both the cold and the rain. Thanks to the leather construction and soft crash protection, customers have also found these gloves comfortable to wear.

Held Score 4.0 Leather & Textile Gloves

With full marks from the first four reviews these Held gloves have done a good job of keeping the worst of the rain out. Made from a mix of stretch fabric and goat leather, customers have found the gloves to be extremely comfortable, if a little hot in temperatures above 20°C. One reviewer noted that the touchscreen technology on the fingers works well, and that the overall build quality is excellent.
