Richa Arctic Textile Waterproof Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Very comfy from the start
Having tried several pairs of gloves I have given up on the hope of finding some gloves that can actually keep me warm for longer than 30 minutes. These are incredibly comfortable and not as cumbersome as some of the others I have tried. So far so good.
Everything you could want in a glove
Quality gloves, only used them a few times but they fit well and you have to think about your hands so you can concentrate on the road. I've been looking for decent gloves for ages and I'm not disappointed. I have medium-ish hands and went for the large size which fit perfectly.
Quality product for the price
I've used a pair of these gloves reasonably regularly for over three years. The only reason for replacing them is that the finger tips have worn a bit - no big deal considering how much they have been used. Brilliant value for money, comfortable (if you get the right fit) and give the safety of other much more expensive gloves.
A good buy for the money
It's been a tough winter to get through, but these have so far kept my hands warm and fairly dry. I noticed on a particularly wet day, they did allow some water in so they are not completely waterproof but then again, the weather has been crazy. For the money they are a good buy and will be fine for 360 days of the year.
I suffer from poor circulation and my hands are always cold so I needed some seriously warm gloves. Although we are experiencing the mildest winter for a long time, these do seem to do the job nicely. 2 hours at 6C and hands quite warm. The quality and fit are good, all in all excellent value.
Couldn't make my mind up between these and another brand so in the warmest winter ever I bought both. They were a good price and arrived promptly. Fit well and feel snug and seem well made. Still have reasonable feel at my fingertips. All I need now is to wear them on the bike in some cold wet weather and see if they are as good as others have suggested.
First thought when the Richa Arctic gloves arrived they are big and bulky, but on the first ride to work they feel very comfy, well insulated and have great protection, also cut in the fingers is well though of as its easy to control the clutch and brake levers on your bike so no worries there. In the last two weeks since I bought them, not had a great deal of rain so cant comment on how waterproof they will be, but on 30min commute to work I'm sure they wont let you down. Great buy, just make sure you button up everything before you ride out, as the thickness makes it hard to access the helmet strap or anything in the pockets. Overall Recommended Winter Glove.
Good warm glove
Great for the morning commute at which they have excelled in the cold and the rain. My fingertips did get a little cold after being on the bike for an hour and a half. I haven't had a chance to use them yet in the wet on a long spin but so far they have kept the rain out for 30 mins.
They seem to keep the cold out so far so, all good on that front. I've not tried them in the rain yet, though. Inner lining has a habit of coming out with your fingers. It takes a fair bit of jiggling and gripping to prevent it coming all the way out.
These gloves are so warm I had to remove the bike Muffs. Good quality. Not sure how long the tips of the fingers are going to last though. Very soft material over the tips so only time will tell. Great service as usual from Sportsbikeshop, well done!!
