Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

Okay sports fans, there are a million different options for gloves so rather than try a hit or miss approach I'd appreciate hearing from you as to what brand of waterproof gloves you recommend? Bonus if they're good for cooler weather, the insides don't slide around and you don't have to give away your firstborn to pay for them.

Thanking you in advance

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

Hi,

Currently I use the BMW Waterproof Summer Gloves, and for Mid Season to warm weather I have a pair of Rev'it Summit H2O gloves.

However I live in Belgium, and the availability in the States might be a little different!

Best regards

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

I swear by Airboss NBC/CBRN gloves. I have worked in these for some years and find them ideal for motorcycling.

Designed for military and police these are protective equipment and resistant to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear materials - they are also highly resistant to tearing. They have good grip in the wet. I once observed a military bomb disposal expert disarming an improvised nuclear device in a pair of these during a special forces exercise - so they should be able to withstand the requirements of riding an LT.

They are also surprisingly cheap from Army & Navy stores and often available cheaply on eBay around $10-15. As I am in the UK I tend to use mine with an inner glove as it's usually pretty cold. I rode 150 miles in heavy rain round the Lake District on Tuesday and they worked 100% (as I expected). They also cover half the forearm and grip tightly enough to prevent water entering down the glove along the jacket sleeve.

So with these you can keep dry and also withstand a nuclear attack whilst riding your LT.

Wink Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

David,

I have been using Halvarssons Newman gloves for 2 years, I didn't notice where you are, but last winter in the UK saw me commute 240 miles in wet and sub zero conditions. These were good for the wet, never letting water into the glove ( as long as your jacket goes over the glove cuff. ) and with the heated grips on the RT I'll not be getting cold either. Last year I was riding a Honda VFR 800 Vtec ( Interceptor ) with much less weather protection, they were a bit chilly at motorway/Freeway speeds. (80+MPH)
I took a minor slide in them in Febuary thanks to a farmer leaving half of the mud from his field on the road, and the gloves dont look at all marked. They machine wash and reproof with NIKWAX.
looking forward to being even warmer and dryer this winter with the extra protection the RT offers. : )
Hope this helps.

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

For a long time I just used BMW Airflow gloves and put the AeroStich water proof three fingered mittens on over them. It is a little hard to get used to the three fingers but they are light, pack small, keep you dry and they have a squeegee on the left index finger. But I caught a good deal on a door prize at the BMW Huntsville opening and got a set of BMW Grip/Proof gloves. They are 2 in one, grip is very light on the hands and some air flow, while proof side it a little tighter but completely water proof.

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

+1 on the Aerostich Triple digit rain gloves. They fold up small and can be easily stored in your jacket pocket for easy access. They work well with all glove types and I've even used them in dry weather for their wind blocking ability during unforeseen temperature drops. The "three finger" feature does take a little bit of getting used to, but doesn't prevent effective operation of your clutch, throttle and brake controls. They are well made, have reflective patches and are reasonably priced, at about $50.00.

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

Not inexpensive but well worth the investment, BMW GS Dry gloves. Nice when cooler temperatures prevail. Warm, water proof, breathable and comfortable without the usual bulk associated with all weather gloves. I prefer the GS Dry to any motorcycle weather proof glove I have worn over the last 50+ years.

If nothing else, worth a look before you make a final decision.

Re: Waterproof Glove Recommendation Requested

My preference in warm to hot weather are golf rain gloves (footjoy is what I'm using). They dry quickly, are flexible and provide excellent grip. In warm to hot weather, I'm only concerned about grip not keeping my actual hands dry.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check them out!
