Alpinestars Archer Gloves 4.6 5 10 10
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
I hope I got a lemon I purchased a large with yellow accents (ha...lemon) and out of the packaging the look, feel, and features of the gloves were superior. I wore them while watching TV for an hour or so before jumping on the bike and voiding the return policy and noticed that the right-hand hard plastic knuckle protector either seemed a bit too narrow for the glove or was off-set a bit to the right and could feel the left edge of it rubbing the middle of my right index knuckle. The left-hand glove fit better. For a $200+ set of gloves I thought a manufacturing defect like this was unacceptable. I assume this was a QA oversight and plan on ordering another pair. Hopefully the 'new' pair doesn't have the same issue. October 31, 2013
Excellent Quality Gloves feels very comfortable from the beginning, you need just few minutes to break them. The size is a little bit tricky, I asked for ( XL) because I have a different gloves alpinestars also in size (L), and the Large are a little bit tight, but the XL are a little bit longer specifically in the finguers. Very good quality, when you use the throotle, break, clutch, etc. is like if you were not wearing anything. The Hi viz color is an excellent touch, it gives modern and classy stile. October 21, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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

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

Gary L: GOOD QUESTION.

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

Levi W: I would say yes they would be excellent for track ridding! There very well built,tough and comfortable! Nov 6, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

Pedro D asked: 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

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.

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
