safe, dry hands
wore these out in a dense fog/light rain yesterday, hands stayed dry. on my F800 GS with the hand guards and heated grips these were warm enough for mid 30s. the visor wiper worked well, though my left hand was definitely a bit chilly because i had to keep taking it off the grip.

they feel safe and i really like the bridge between the pinky and ring finger, they're flexible and don't feel bulky.

the only thing i would change is that there isn't a capacitive tip on the left index finger, so you can't interact with a smartphone with them on.

Great all-purpose waterproof glove
Excellent 3 season glove with amazing feel and protection in a waterproof package. Why only 3 season? It's all subjective but below 40°F my fingers are dangerously cold at the end of a 30 minute ride at freeway speeds.
The archer breathes well in the PNW summers and keeps my paws nicely dry without that annoying "glove-within-a-glove" feeling you would get from unbonded waterproofing material.
Bonus: Get the hi-viz version if you want to be sure drivers catch all your polite hand signals :)

Good Quality but at a price
I have just completed a 10,000km trip over the past two weeks covering temperatures from -2 C to 32 C wind, rain and all in between so I feel reasonably safe in having a good idea of what these gloves can and can't do.

Firstly, the fit, yes they are small and anyone with a largish hand should try before you buy, luckily I have a pair of AStars so I had a size to go off, otherwise I would have ordered one size too small.

The thumb is slightly long but fingers and across the hand fits great.

Comfort is outstanding, I wore the gloves day in and out for 10-12 hours a day, very comfy all day, except when it was really cold ie under 6 C or hot ie over 27 C when I changed to the other gloves I had with me.

Feel is great, I could easily access most things like zips, keys even helmet straps with the gloves on.

Cost is fairly high and you can get gloves that do the same job, but not as much protection or feel, all in all a bloody good glove, never let a drop of water in and keep hands at a good temp for most conditions. I think they look pretty good too...

Race Protection meets Gore-Tex
Aside from K-Tech and more ulna protection, this is a race glove with waterproofing. The lack of liners provides excellent feel. The knuckle and fingers are ergonomic. The cuff allows for under or over the sleeve. They also look pretty badass IMO.

Since there is no thermal lining, these gloves are really for mild climates/seasons. On a cold day, the lack of direct venting protects your fingers but highways runs will freeze your fingers. On a hot day, the Gore-Tex does well, but my hands get sweaty (I sweat, can't help it). For me, the ideal temperature range for these gloves is 45-65F.

Sizing-wise, I think the gloves are very snug and the fingers are slightly short. I fit fine, but I don't consider myself to have thick or long fingers. If your fingers are long or thick, you may want to keep that in mind when ordering these gloves.

The All Purpose Gloves I've Been Searching For!
Highlights:
1) Gore-Tex X-Trafit is awesome! This glove feels like a regular leather glove and grants you the same level of tactile feedback
2) Lots of good race level features including palm slider, cowhide construction, knuckle sliders styled after A Stars' race gloves, finger bridge, and others. Hi-Viz version looks cool and matches my GT-Air

Could Do Better:
1) Some gloves have beefier protection for the little finger e.g. distortion control and hard parts but you do get the finger bridge and an extra layer of cow on the Archers.

Thoughts:
Finger bridge is cool and doesn't really impair your level of control like I was worried it might. Sizing for me goes against all the advice I've seen or heard. These gloves fit true to size for me and NOT one size small. I am a Large in Dainese, Racer, and others and a Large Alpinestars Archer fit me best. Expect some break in as well if they feel stiff at first. The level of feel and feedback from these gloves is similar to a 4 Stroke EVO glove I had tried previous, with Archer has the added benefit of being waterproof! So far I've only tried these gloves in 59-63 degree weather (perfect for a San Diego winter) and they have kept my hands pretty warm considering I don't have grip heaters or handguards and I have bad circulation in my hands. I have yet to try these in hot weather but you seem to get decent airflow so my guess is these will still be comfortable in the high 70s to 80s maybe higher

Recommended!

Outstanding comfort and protection
I bought these based upon my experience with their cold weather cousin, the insulated A-Stars Tech Road Goretex glove.
Minus the insulation, the fit is identical, familiar and very comfortable. They're also equally waterproof.

A little pricy for a glove, which is also what I thought when I bought the Tech Roads, but as with all things high quality those thoughts quickly fade when enjoying the attributes that come with those prices. Buy once buy right, I was always taught. That philosophy certainly applies to riding gear.

best gloves I've had
I had a pair of Held Rainstorm waterproof gloves in the past and the liner came away from the glove itself over time. I bought these for the x-trafit and because of A-stars reputation. They were snug at first (I ride an 8 in Held gloves) and I was going to soak them and ride them to get a little more room for my fingers but after riding a few days I started getting used to the fit. I do like my gloves to be fairly tight anyway.

I love these gloves. They feel like they were custom made for my hand now. They feel incredibly solid yet don't hinder normal control of the bike at all. I've actually been riding these gloves most of the summer (though I think it's time to switch now that it's much hotter in NC - July).

The palms are soft and grippy. The layers of protection are super beefy. Incredibly solid at the outside of the hand. Very thick doubled up areas that don't hinder comfort. Hard sliders at the knuckle and outside bottom of the palm are solid but well padded so don't sacrifice comfort either.

The visor wipe is adequate and an obvious requirement for a waterproof glove. I wish more gloves had a visor wipe whether waterproof or not since it's so useful if you end up even in just a drizzle.

The leather on the back of the glove at the cuff seem obviously softer and are a really nice touch.

Expensive but worth every penny in my opinion.

Definitely waterproof, definitely warm, definitely awesome.
Very waterproof but they don't breathe all that much (that is expected though). Not too bulky which is great, but when new they are pretty rigid. They have good protection and style. The pinky bridge is wonky, but it's growing on me (first A* gloves). These will most likely make your hands sweat in the summer but in the cooler temps, I bet these are the bomb. All in all, great pair of gloves. They have pretty good feel for waterproof gloves, and in cooler temperatures you could probably wear them as your main gloves.

Good mild and wet glove
Only had a few chances to wear these gloves but they are breaking in pretty quickly. Definitely a mild and wet not a cold weather glove. They are also too hot at 70+. Without a base layer glove underneath, these get a bit chilly at 50. I am an XL in most gloves but based on my Alpinestars Octane gloves I knew I was an XXL in Alpinestars. I got this in XXL and they fit great.

+'s
*Soft and comfortable
*Good breathability for something that is waterproof
*Obviously a lot of protection
*Cuff slim enough to easily fit under my Klim Latitude jacket, can still squeeze it over the sleeves if I really want to.
*Great visor wiper

-'s
*Narrow wrist entry. It works for me. Someone with very thick hands of the same length may have issues
*The pinky safety bridge makes it impossible to 3 finger brake.

Very good
Great finish, comfortable. It seems to offer good protection as well. At the beginning the handle was a bit tight to get through the hand, but after a few times has softened. I haven't used it in the rain yet, but the Goretex should do well. My hand circumference is 9.25 in (23,5cm); the size chart recommended the XL, but I chose the L and it served very well (maybe because I don't have fingers too long).

I was looking specifically for a Gore-Tex glove with palm sliders (among other requirements), and this Alpinestars glove had everything I wanted.
Nathan D on Sep 20, 2015
It has all of the features I want in a spring/fall glove. I'm planning on doing more commuting during questionable and rainy weather, and a lot of the other waterproof/winter gloves skimp on a lot of protection. After witnessing a VERY minor 20mph spill from a friend result in his hand being relocated underneath his forearm, I simply WILL NOT even consider buying gloves without palm sliders. I wish there were a "feature" search that would help rule out gear without needed features.
O N on Apr 6, 2015
These are my second pair I've purchased from Revzilla. I've up graded all my equipment to waterproof, mostly Goretex. I also wanted great protection. These gloves fit perfectly. I don't drive in weather below 40 F.
Norbert D on Feb 12, 2015
I'm a huge fan of the GP Plus, but now that mine are finally coming apart after years of track days and commuter use, they need to be replaced. I don't do many track days anymore and I have Held racing gloves if I really need them, but what I really wanted was a GP Plus style glove with no ventilation, but with waterproofing built in. Most of my time on bikes now is commuting and joy riding, not so much track days, so I wanted something I can keep on my hands if it starts to rain.

My fingertips are a little bit in contact with the gloves. Does that mean I need to go a size bigger of does it need breaking in?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2015
Can I use this on the track? Or should I look for something beefier?
Ronald B on Nov 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have this glove and I think the protection is would be fine for a track day but not for amature club racing. But overall I don't think it is great glove for track use because the glove has a slightly looser fit compared to other astars gloves. I think a snug glove with good dexterous feeling on the controls is a better choice for a track glove with good protection of course. I use the archer glove only for commuting.
Anyone notice the left hand glove being very tight around the thumb area?
Kyle C on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kyle,

I felt exactly the same but only in the internal side of the thumb. After riding for about 500 km -which is a little more than 300 miles- the leather loosened enough to stop feeling that uncomfortable part.

Actually, when I saw your question I needed to try them on to remember if I was still feeling this and it just was that I get used to it, haha! But no, I now feel them fine.
Are these gloves meant to be worn with jacket sleeves over the gauntlets, or gauntlet on top of sleeve?
Rahul P on May 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Like any gloves. If you ride with your hands high ie ape hangers then gloves go outside the jacket. If more sport orientated and hands are low then jacket over the top. Think about which way the water will run. Cheers
Why no visor wipe on these if they're meant to be ridden in the rain?
Jim U on Mar 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: they do have a visor wipe integrated into the left thumb
Hi Revzilla.

This would be a good glove to ride on 40º F up, or for that temperature should i consider the Tech Road ?

Thank you
Pedro
Pedro D on Sep 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I had them on a ride at 45 and the were too cold without a base layer glove underneath. Definitely a 50 plus glove.
If the Archers aren't insulated, why are they included in the Winter Glove section?
Ben D on Oct 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Because they are waterproof, and for winter rides at 40-45F + they should work just fine depending on your tolerance for cooler temps.
