Alpinestars Equinox Outdry Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great quality, live up to high standard
I had the EquInox Goreglove before and I was spoiled. I worn them down until fingers had holes through underneath. I bought OutDry as a replacement. Sizing is accurate and they are very nice and snug inside. I have long fingers and wear Gerbing heated liners in the winter so I bought one size up (XL) - the fingers are still too short (like in all gloves I buy, so not a surprise there) and the gloves are very snug, I can just about fit the liners. Without the liners, the feeling of controls is great. The inside feels like a spongy silk, really pleasant to ride in. With the liners, it took a few days to wear in, get some flexibility and a good feeling of controls. Previous Goreglove were advertised as "all year round, down to 5 degrees C" and I would say newer OutDry are very similar (didn't have a chance to test them in summer, ofc). They feel great and should be OK with handlebar windguards, but without you can feel the cold after 40 minutes of driving in sub 8 degree C weather (especially in rain/fog). The wiper is on the index finger and is a bit smaller and harder than on the previous Goreglove, but works great - leaves the visor very clean. I wanted to try out other gloves, but features on Equinox won. I especially like the finger bridge and padding/armour. I took them for a 4h drive in total pourdown along the motorway, 50-77mph ;) all the way, with lorries slushing and kicking up mist. The gloves did great, I can definitely recommend! Goreglove lasted me for around 10k miles waterproof, another 10k miles with no major visible tear-and-wear and I pushed them for 10k more daily riding. Hope these will be as durable!
