Default Waterproof Gloves

I have a pair of Klim Inversion gloves. They're great. Whether in the snow or on the dirt, they're simply the best gloves I've ever owned for handlebar applications.

The Gore Windstopper is a lifesaver. I only wish they'd repel water.

Can anyone offer opinions on snowmobile-specific lightweight waterproof gloves? My snowboarding gloves are just too bulky.

I had klim powercross gloves but they became my backup pair after I bought true adventure gear storm gloves

I have two or three pair of everything Klim makes but when it comes to light weight waterproof gloves it is R. U. Outside's K-Dogs for me.

I have two pairs of the gauntlet KLIM gloves with leather palm. They absorb water and my hands get wet and cold. I don't think you want leather gloves, for water protection they absorb too much water.

I am having the same issue with a new set of leather motofist.


Just an FYI

Thumbs up 509 Backcountry gloves

I recently got to try out some of the new Backcountry gloves by 509 and I was really impressed with the quality of the glove. If you're looking for info on gloves or any type of gear checkout the reviews at this link: http://rockymtnpursuit.com/2016/02/2...love/#more-691

Also if you have gear you have really liked or not liked leave a comment at this he above link as well.

Default Gloves

tried a lot of gloves. My hands get cold with the slightest bit of wet. I think I have Raynauds disease.

I won a pair of True Adventure Gear Storm X2 gloves at a snowmobile club raffle. At first I thought I would give them away but instead I tried them. They are the first glove that I have been able to use all day riding, shoveling, helping guys out, etc and my hands don't get wet or cold. The material on the palm gets a little wet but the inner layer isolates. Now my Klim gloves are back-ups and quite frankly I will buy more TAG gloves as primary. They have also held up really well.

I have had some wet rides the last few weeks. I'm the same as someone mentioned above about getting cold hands once the gloves get wet. I literally carry 5 pairs. I prefer the lighter gloves which doesn't help. I've got 3 pairs of motorfist, 509, which are great until they get wet, OR and klim. I was thinking the other day, has anyone ever used neoprene fishing gloves? I have for fishing and they are nice. I'm half thinking of giving them a shot on my next wet ride day.
