Lightweight waterproof gauntlet gloves?
« on: 01/14/17 10:47PM »

Anyone have any good suggestions for waterproof gauntlet gloves?  Basically similar comfort to regular leather sportbike gloves but waterproof.  Don't want anything too bulky.  Too many options out there!

I've seen First gear Master gloves recently at a vendor I frequently purchase gear at. Uninsulated and waterproof caught my eye. I recently purchased Knox Zero 2 Hand Armor gloves. I need the insulation.

What size glove do you wear? I have a set of Rev'It gloves I'm selling that are in that category.

I mainly wear large (Joe Rocket / Alpinestars), so not sure how Rev'It is size wise?

It doesn't hurt to try them on. I have no problem meeting up with you so you can check them out. I'm in Anaheim between the Stanton and Buena Park borders (Knott and Ball). Let me know if you want to check them out.

Let me do some research on them to make sure they're not too warm. I get hot fast  ;D

According to the Revzilla review (see my link in the classified post) they feel these are perfect for California "cold" as they don't have a lot of insulation and is why I bought them in the first place. My plan was to use them with my heated glove liners for when it gets below the 30F mark. Unfortunately they didn't work well with the liners, so I'm selling them. The replacement glove (Summit 2) however does, so that's what I have now.

After six (6) months of use, every single moto gauntlet glove I've used has failed. No accidents. No water-logged strain. Either ripped stitching or torn leather. 

Alpinestar was the worst of the gloves I've used.  Their $300 GP Tech's offered the same failing thin leather and when I visited their compound in Torrance they denied warranty repair/replacement because I didn't have the original receipt, even though I had the receipt and original box from an online vendor.  After protest I accepted they wouldn't replace the gloves and asked to speak to an engineer to inform them the leather needed to be thicker on the next generation gloves to which they also denied me a conversation.  Previously, their SP-2 gloves failed on me in an accident which resulted in the skin and nail torn off my pinky, exposing bone, and subsequent loss of function in the digit. I will never buy another Alpinestar product again.

Sedici (Cycle Gear Home Brand) also have the same 6-month fate but they have bent over backwards to replace damaged units and maintain my business.

I had a mixed experience with Alpinestars as well. My SP-1s from a decade ago were solid. The SP-2 I bought after that lasted maybe a few months. My Joe Rocket GPX are still good after several years but their latest version seems more flimsy as well.
