A waterproof liner plus water-repellent outer fabric deflect rain to keep your digits warmer, drier and happier. Cycle specific design provides positive contact with your handlebar grip and minimal slippage between the glove liner and outer. Mmmmmm, cozy.
▹ How waterproof are these gloves?
These are good gloves - particularly I like the velcro fastenings. They seem warm enough so far too. My old Ground Effect Gloves lasted about 5 years, so I have high hopes for these also.
Great gloves. Toasty warm perfect fit not too clumpy. Not sure on waterproofness as yet
Great gloves. Warm and toasty keeping the wind chill at bay. Of course since I got them it hasn’t rained! They have a good sized cuff for ample wrist coverage so there’s no exposed skin. As usual Ground Effect’s overnight delivery is the greatest.
I bought these on spec just before I left for a trip to Tasmania 3 weeks ago - walking not riding (I know I know). And man did they get a work out. We spent the first 2 days of the Overland track in a blizzard & the aftermath. The gloves (plus a merino liner) performed superbly. Pity I can’t say the same for my supposedly waterproof socks, but that’s another story. Paul Bidwell, Brisbane
Sealskin waterproof gloves, not so waterproof. After several hours in the rain they eventually leak through the entire membrane. They do remain quite warm though and I'll keep them for cold drizzly days, not rainy days
