Alpinestars Archer Gloves 4.7 5 12 12
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. July 10, 2015
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! May 7, 2015
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... July 22, 2014
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. July 5, 2014
Surprised comfort Purchased these for my rain glove. Needed to use them to transport the bike for a 2 hour ride on a hot day and was surprised by their ability to keep my hand comfortable and get air into and around my hand. At the same time the feel they provide is excellent. They have become one of my favorite gloves to wear. Their fit is as mentioned so follow the guide. May 27, 2014
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. April 14, 2014
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.

Strong, stylish, awsome protection, great extension to high vis jacket and helmet The Alpinestars Archer High Vis gloves are a great product The high vis black combo is stylish and practical, the high vis extends the high vis if you wear a high vis jacket as the high vis is most noticable from the side. It has a tight fit and I have medium bones, I think if you had thick wrists these could be unsuitable I am 5' 7" medium boned and 80kg. I purchased the size large and they are a tight but suitable fit. Protection is excellent, the straps are good and you can tighten these gloves over your jacket sleeve really well. These gloves should be fine for temperatures between say 7 c to 33 c or 40F to 90F ie cold to warm but not freezing or extremely hot. December 20, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Nathan D: I was looking specifically for a Gore-Tex glove with palm sliders (among other requirements), and this Alpinestars glove had everything I wanted. Sep 20, 2015
O N: 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. Apr 6, 2015
Norbert D: 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. Feb 12, 2015
A W: 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. Sep 3, 2014
Alex H: Waterproof, I liked the high visibility patterning, and the excellent protection offered. Aug 12, 2014
Eric B: Good reviews, unfortunately it didn't fit well and I had to return it. Nov 5, 2013
matthew l: needed waterproof, windproof gloves to use with heated grips and barkbusters for winter. Oct 28, 2013
steven w: I have summer gloves from Alpinestars. I wanted something that's waterproof for winter riding here in the Pac NW, where its not really that cold, it just gets damp. Oct 25, 2013
Wylie G: looking for a waterproof glove that isn't bulky and protects well Sep 23, 2013
Ronald B asked: Can I use this on the track? Or should I look for something beefier? Nov 2, 2014

reginald H: 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. Nov 3, 2014

I ride highway, but try to ride mostly dirt on my R1200 GSA

Do you ride in the rain or wet weather? If you do these could be a good choice for you. If not then, overkill I'd say.

Sizing is small. I usually wear a 10us, I ordered the large and returned for Xlg. Much better.

Andrew D: The Archer Glove is very robust with heavy reinforcement built into the glove. No rain or wind was ever able to penetrate this glove so if you want airflow, do not get this glove. Otherwise YES I think it is track ready. Nov 2, 2014
Reply to Andrew Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Louis W: Personally I'd go with something a bit cooler. The glove is very solidly built but it the heat of the track battle is suspect it would be too warm. The sp2 I use in summer would be a better choice. Nov 2, 2014

Alex H: These gloves have the same level of protection as the similar priced leather gloves. I would have no qualms about wearing these on the track. Nov 2, 2014
Reply to Alex Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Levi W: I would say yes they would be excellent for track ridding! There very well built,tough and comfortable! Nov 6, 2014

Kyle C asked: Anyone notice the left hand glove being very tight around the thumb area? May 30, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jorge V: 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.

Stephen S: My gloves both fit and feel the same. Be sure to get the sizing right - comfortable right from the start but they will stretch slightly once broken in. May 31, 2015

Louis W: Not me. Both left and right fit like....well gloves. Have to be careful with size though. Alpinestars tend be be smaller than you think. Great gloves. May 30, 2015

Rahul P asked: Are these gloves meant to be worn with jacket sleeves over the gauntlets, or gauntlet on top of sleeve? May 8, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Louis W: 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 May 9, 2014
Reply to Louis Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Wylie G: i'd say under. they fit nicely with my bmw streetguard 3 jacket, going over the inner sleeve extension and under the outer shell portion. the gauntlet doesn't extend too far up the arm, basically just covers an inch or so beyond the wrist. May 9, 2014
Reply to Wylie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nathaniel P: I have an Icon textile Anthem jacket and a Motorhead leather jacket. In both cases the gauntlet does fit under the jacket sleeves (without the liner zipped in). Other jackets may not produce similar results. May 8, 2014
Reply to Nathaniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
steven w: You can probably do either, but your results will vary based on the cuff size of your jacket. I wear mine on the outside of an Icon Patrol jacket, and they just about make it over the cuff. May 8, 2014
Reply to steven Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Anthony s: I have a Klim Latitude jacket and always wear the gloves under the sleeve. They have a pretty slim cuff, so the jacket sleeves would have to be very thin to fit underneath. May 8, 2014
Reply to Anthony Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Levi W: I where them under my sleeves but they can be worn over the sleeves to prevent rain from going under your sleeves! May 10, 2014

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

Thank you

Anthony s: I had them on a ride at 45 and the were too cold without a base layer glove underneath. Definitely a 50 plus glove. Sep 30, 2013
Reply to Anthony Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Mark Anthony R: Hi Pedro,
I have only just got them last Friday and whore them on Sunday at temperatures of between 50-60F and they were fine, I think at 40F over a long distance you would start to get cold hands on short distance 60k (40miles) or so you would be ok. Warmer gloves would be recommended if you do long distance 120+ miles at less 45F.

Ben D asked: If the Archers aren't insulated, why are they included in the Winter Glove section? Oct 6, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
steven w: Because they are waterproof, and for winter rides at 40-45F + they should work just fine depending on your tolerance for cooler temps. Oct 8, 2013
