Good all-rounder

Seems to be waterproof so far. Good level of protection. They allow an average level of hand dexterity. Best suited to mild weather, there is Kevlar inside rather than insulating material. They feel cold in 8*C to me, pair with heated grips. Construction quality is ok, a few stitches around the finger tips look like they will come loose over time. Good value, there's not much else with the same features. Only really let down by lack of insulation but they may be better in the summer for it. Could also do with ability to operate a touch screen

All seasons riding gloves

Excellent construction and fit. First rate glove for all seasons. Expensive yes but I would expect these gloves to last many years.

Moderate protection

Well made gloves, with a solid feel. The thumb is oddly long. Protection feels a bit light - some plastic on the knuckles and good wrist guard, but not much more. Closure system is easy to use, and nicely waterproof. I'm using these in warm, wet conditions and they're doing well. Sportsbikeshop as usual are brilliant.

Great kit

Snug fit, measure your hands and size accordingly, work great in the rain, nice and dry, cold weather riding 0 and below the tips of your fingers will still get cold due to wind chill but nothing painfull......great for Scottish weather

Amazing gloves

This is the most I've ever spent on a pair of gloves. was it worth it. ..most definitely, also bought the silk inner gloves but have only needed to use them once so far. Top class service yet again from sportsbikeshop.

Brilliant gloves

These gloves are brilliant! I finally pulled the trigger after a few weeks thinking about it. Favourite glove purchase I've made. They have been completely waterproof for me and very comfortable with great feel. Build quality is so good that it's made me consider trying Held clothing even though I find the styling a bit dull. The cuff isn't too bulky, you should be able to fit under jackets and over jackets pretty easily. This is not a winter glove per say - I use heated grips and have Barkbuster blizzard so it's been completely fine in around 5c temperatures. You should not use these in winter without grips and wind guard for the hands. Regarding fit - I'm a large in RST, Richa, Knox and Weise and find them all true to size; for these gloves I am an XL.

Supposed to be waterproof, well I can tell you they're not, I know @ £114 they are not the most expensive gloves, but I shall not be buying another pair.. I will look for a "Waterproof" pair now

Great gloves

I cannot fault these gloves at all. I haven't tested them in heavy rain yet but they are very comfortable and look great. The build quality is also there.

A real quality glove, that excuse the pun "fit like a glove". I live in Spain so these will be perfect for the weathers we get...all or nothing!

Good quality glove

Good quality materials and manufacturing. Gloves fit well, I bought a size large as usual and they fitted well if just a little snug but will break in after a while. There very good tactile wise though its not rained so far can't say about how waterproof they are. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend.

A lot of protection no sweating in recent warm weather so good ventilation. Havn't tested in cold yet.

Fantastic fit and brilliant build quality

Couldn't be better. Super comfortable, fantastic build quality and loads of protection. Bought after a long hunt for waterproof non winter gloves. Found these to be great over the wet summer days, not too hot but totally waterproof as you'd expect. Fit was perfect for me and closure great with big pull tab to seat the gloves well and lovely big velcro cuff. Couldn't recommend them more.

Well made and comfortable

Very comfortable and solidly made. Haven't tested them in the rain yet, but they did handle a mild drizzle. The wiper is a nice touch.

Well made, although my first pair were not stitched on the index finger, but SBS replaced them with no fuss. The new pair seem excellent although not tried them in the wet yet.

Top rated gloves

I bought these as a 3 season pair of gloves for commuting and general riding. The sizing seems to be perfect, and I expected them to be a little stiff in movement, but that soon went after about 200 miles of riding, and shaped nicely to my hand movements and hand shape. Aside from a little rain shower I have yet to test their waterproof abilities but am confident with Gore-Tex that they will be affective against water ingress. They look very stylish and even the visor wipe works, so all in all I am very pleased with my purchase and they are definitely worth the investment.

Yes yes yes

So far I did 1610 miles with them around Scotland. It was rainy and sunny days. I very happy with them. It's not too hot with them and in rain keeps dry and warm. I don't think you need brake them as they feels very comfortable and soft. 10 of 10 + 10 for next day delivery.

Quality glove

You don't need me to tell you about the features of this glove; it's in the description, and nor do you need me to tell you what I great price SBS are knocking them out at, but what I will say is that the quality, feel and the fit is excellent. Well stitched together, great supple leather giving as smashing fit. I don't think these will take long at all to break in as they are really comfortable from the off. Not tried the waterproofing yet, but I've no reason to think they won't perform well given the quality feel of the glove.
