Customer Reviews for Richa Arctic Textile Waterproof Gloves - Black
Struggled to find good winter gloves for a 8 mile commute into work. Not far I know, but far enough in the Scottish winter. gloves are toasty and dry and feel quality. not too big above cuff for going under jacket either. size guide online is bang on, I ordered an xl and although a tiny bit big, winter gloves if too tight don't retain heat for me. cheers All.Read more
Pretty decent at a reasonable price
This is the first full winter I've ridden through, my previous winter gloves weren't up to the job. Picked these up and thus far they have been waterproof, breathable and comfortable. Although below about 5 degrees the end of my fingers do end up slightly nippy after a long ride. But overall a well priced and good product.Read more
Warm and cosy!
I got these gloves for a step-up in quality (the Velcro was coming apart on my cheap old ones). They're really warm and cosy and seem to keep the chilly wind out - work well paired with my heated grips. I wanted a pair with a wiper which these have, though the wiper is a little stiff and difficult to use unfortunately. I'm worried it will scratch my visor :( Wish it was more fin-shaped and flexible. I'd also say the harder rubber section on the wrist Velcro is a bit awkward as it's difficult to tuck these under your sleeves. However, fit is really good. I'm a woman and find women's gloves far too short in the fingers and palm so these are really good to use instead.Read more
Just the job.
Completely waterproof and I commute 20 miles each way in some horrendous conditions and they don't leak. About as warm as any other top notch winter glove I have had but at a better price. Great winter glove for the money.Read more
For the first time in 50 years of riding my fingers felt really cold, and they hurt. This prompted me to search for some better gloves, my last pair having served me well for 9 years. After a lot of review reads and asking friends I decided on the Richa Arctic. It was a good choice. More comfortable than my previous gloves, which seemed to have a 'tight' point and made my scaphoid ached after a while riding. These do not. They felt warm and comfy as soon as I put them on. They allow me a good level of 'feel' and are an all round hit for me. Great gloves.Read more
I had just a pair of summer gloves and although I had great dexterity, in anything but the warmest days I would have cold fingers. I tend to suffer from chilly hands so I was never expecting to be totally toasty in these but I was really pleasantly surprised. I went for 2 rides in sub 7 degree temperatures, each for over an hour and at the end of both I was still comfortable. The periods of extended motorway speed tended to make my hands a little chilly after 30 minutes or so but as soon as the speed came off and I lost the wind chill, I warmed back up. I tend to avoid wet weather if possible and have yet to test them in this regard but I have high hopes. Regarding the comments about the lining pulling out, I've had no such issues - I simply grip the glove by the fingers and pull from there, which prevents the lining moving as my hand comes out.Read more
Comes with wiper
Didn't realise it has a wiper on the glove as I bought a separate one as well. Quality seems good, and feels warm though not tested in the Scottish winter condition yet. Sizing feels abit tight but hopefully will become looser after breaking them in.Read more
Fast and easyRead more
After trying multiple pairs of gloves these were the most comfortable and warm and still usable with small controls. they seam well made as well. the little wiper blade comes in handy in that annoying light spray as well.Read more
Comfy, warm and well built. A couple weeks of daily wearing my hands have been perfectly dry and as they break in, they are more flexible and comfortable.Read more
