Best Gore-Tex Gloves?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My experience of Gore-Tex is that it is cool in the summer and warm as toast in the winter! My boots have a gore-tex liner and I never get cold in them, even in the coldest weather.

So ....

I must have gore-tex.

But ... is solid armour necessary? Or will lots of padding be sufficient? I tried on a pair of Alpinestars WR-2 in the Honda shop, they were really comfy, not bulky at all ... but hardly any protection :(

Can anyone recommend a good pair of gloves that combine both gore-tex and armour/good padding on the knuckles and back of hand? And what size do you take?

I am either an XL or a 2XL depending upon the make (I have wide hands with long fingers).

I'll add them to my wishlist too then! They are pricey, but gore-tex is definitely worth it.

Anything will be better than my current gloves that say "super-warmth" and "waterproof" on them (yeah, right!). They also say "Made in China" on the label ... that'll be why ... :wink:
