    Question rain gloves

    It seems that every year products get bigger, better, faster, deeper...and so on.

    What are you using for rain gloves?

    I rode 6 hours is rain and 40 degree temps last Sat. Not fun.

    I have these Aerostitich glove covers too. They work great! I wear them over my Gerbing heated gloves and I have had no problems with them at all. As an added bonus, my 9 year old daughter really digs the lobster claw look.

    I wear the Alpinestar Gortex gloves. I've had them for three years now & have rode in about 15,000 miles of rain & never once got wet. I have almost 100,000 miles on these gloves & they are still in good shape.

    Let me add to this because I'm looking for some as well. Is there a pair out there that offers good prtection but isn't made for Antarctica. Can good leather gloves be made for rain in the southeast?

    I like the aerostich covers in black.

    +4 on the Aerostich rain covers. I got the unlined orange one's as I felt the color would help me to be seen in inclement weather. They also have a lined version (or at least they used to, haven't checked in a while) if you need additional warmth.

    I carry the StichÔÇÖ Triple Digit rain gloves as a back up when I tour. Most of the time I use the BMW Summer Pro gloves.

    I'm on my second set, I really like them

    I use the BMW Summer Rain Gloves, probably an ancestor of the Summer Pro Gloves - they look the same. Light, breatheable and watertight. If it's cold, I add silk liners. If it's too cold for liners and heated grips, I take the car.

    That won't work next week when we ride up to Seattle to get the seat on your new bike built.

    Ya know, you Santa Cruz guys are too funny...

    ...postings from California about cold weather.

    Not to hijack my own thread, but spend some time riding in the frozen tundra when it is thawing out. Like this last weekend.

    I am sure that we will now hear from a club member who rides in the Arctic Circle in December.

    Why would I want to do that?

    Look at some weather sites: it's actually warmer and drier up there now than it is here. I'll be taking my swimsuit.

    I had the exact same experience weekend before last. My bad for checking the weather forecast from my departure point but not my destination. I immediately bought the Aerostich covers everyone else is talking about.
