Waterproof Gloves

So we are heading to Colorado end of the month and will be getting quite a bit of rain with temps from mid 70's to 30's in the higher elevations with a lot of variability in between.

Right now I have a really old pair of fat bulky use them only if I have to gloves for cold wet weather (warm wet weather I use mx gloves).

My question is does anybody have something they love and want to share with us? I am all ears so to speak. I do have rather large hands, so typically 2XL or 3XL depending on who makes them. I have purchased and returned a couple of high end Klim because they were too small no matter what size I ordered.

Thanks

Re: Waterproof Gloves

I've had great luck with BMW 2-in-1 gloves. $200, but your hands will be dry in the rain, and in dry weather, they convert to normal vented leather gloves.

Re: Waterproof Gloves

I have yet to find any glove that keeps my hands warm without being bulky. I do have a pair of Cortech gloves that work fairly well though unless I am doing sustained high speeds on the highway in cold temps for more than an hour or so. Even the heated grips don't really help that much at that point. A heated vest goes a LONG way toward my hands staying warm, same for my toes. If my torso is warm, the rest of me fares much better. The gloves do a good job of keeping my hands dry. I use them on the KTM and the GS.

Mine are the prior version and don't have the thumb squeegie thing on the left glove.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
