How to Pick Good Waterproof Gloves


Keep Your Hands Warm to Ride Safely

This time of year, we don’t get a warm, tropical rain. No, we get cold, cold rain. One of the first places to feel that cold are your hands. Nobody can ride safely with hands that have gone numb from the cold.

Gloves that are lined and truly waterproof are a must this time of the year. And if you have heated gloves, even better.

To see some of the features that make a good waterproof glove, let’s look at the Explorer (Item No Longer Available, Find Similar Items Here). It’s got a Hipora™ membrane that is both waterproof and breathable. This ensures you’re more comfortable wearing the gloves, especially if it starts to rain.

The gloves are equipped with a layer of 3M’s lightweight Thinsulate™ insulation to keep your hands warm and your fingers nimble. Leather is used to protect your palm and finger pads, offering durability and comfort. This combination makes for an ideal riding glove in colder weather.

They are designed in the full-gauntlet style that fits over your jacket sleeves to prevent water from seeping down to your wrists. This style works best if your arms are level or on the up-slope as you ride. For different riding styles, you might prefer gloves that fit under your jacket sleeves. The gloves also feature an adjustable wrist strap that can be tightly closed with one hand, and reflective piping for extra visibility in bad weather. Additionally, the left index finger has a unique wiper blade to swipe across your visor and clear the raindrops.

Stay safe out there!
