Alpinestars Polar Gore-Tex Gloves

An all-weather touring and everyday riding glove, the Polar Gore-Tex is both 100% waterproof and highly breathable, offering comfort and high performance carbon fiber knuckle protection. Extensive accordion flex panels endow this mid-length glove with enhanced fit and riding feel.

Features:

  • Goatskin leather and high abrasion resistant fabric construction for greater abrasion and tear resistance
  • Suede reinforcements for added durability and grip
  • Technical Gore-Tex glove designed to be worn under jacket sleeves
  • Carbon knuckle protectors for high impact protection
  • Advanced EVA inserts for increased impact absorption
  • Alpinestars patented finger-bridge prevents finger separation and stops twisting around the little finger in the event of a slide
  • TPR finger stylus for use with bike navigation systems
  • Chamude wipe strip forms a quick, convenient helmet visor cleaner
  • Accordion inserts on fingers and top of the hand for maximum flexibility
  • Double wrist closure firmly secures the glove
  • Reflective details

Note: TPR finger stylus works with pressure-sensitive touch screens and will not work with heat-sensitive touch screens, such as those on iPhone and Android phones.

Great insulation and comfort I received these gloves as a Christmas present this year and am incredibly happy with them so far. They feel very durable and, god forbid I go down, I feel these gloves offer a lot of protection. Sizing was a little tricky. I measure 4" by the size chart, but have a very long palm and long fingers, measuring 8 1/4" from bottom of my palm to the tip of my middle finger. So I got an XL and it fits great. And I live in the pacific northwest and have ridden in several 20-30 degree days so far for hours at a time and haven't felt the least bit chilled at all. Great gloves, I would definitely buy them again. Hope this review helps January 6, 2014
neat i ordered a size MD based on the alpinestars sizing chart and it seems that my hand fills it near perfectly. however, being an EU glove, when i close a fist there are pressure points against my knuckles and pinky finger. pay attention when anthony says to go a size larger. overall the glove performs as it should. the fingers are the weakest point on any glove, and as such, do not keep your fingertips warm, especially when you squeeze the handlebar for grip, pushing blood out of your fingertip and subjecting the flesh to get cold. the rest of the hand is completely invincible to the cold. it is helpful to flex your fingers open often as this allows warm air to flow from the palm of the glove into the fingertips, and throwing in a pair of hand warmers inside the gloves should prove to nearly eliminate the effects of the cold. i often ride around with my pinkies extended like holding a teacup to keep them warmer. i took the gloves on a short ride through 16°F and only my fingertips felt any of the cold. i rated the bang for the buck at 3/5 because they are $170, which seems a fair price, which means every feature the glove offers, you pay for. it's a fair deal, not a steal of a deal. the styling is excellent and it almost looks like a summer glove at first glance. the 3/4 gauntlet fits snugly into my jacket cuff. comfort is 4/5 because it feels really secure and warm, except for the tightness when closing a fist as mentioned before since it is a EU glove. the protection and durability seem to be excellent considering the leather palm and carbon fiber armor, considering a lot of winter gloves are made only for temp with no consideration towards armor. air flow is rated lowest as it should be. it flows zero air. features are rated 3/5 because it does have gore-tex and offers a pair of useful index-finger styluses, but i couldn't figure out what part of the left glove was supposed to be the facescreen wiper. both hands look identical. it would have gotten a 5/5 rating if the glove had an actual squeegee wiper down the length of the index finger or something.

Snug, and thermal protectiong severally lacking Purchased last night after taking the recommendation of the local Moto shop from the 'street expert'. Stated that these gloves are good down to 10 degress since he rode with them on a all day ride. Perhaps he's got ice in his veins and he's use to alaskan weather. I rode from home to work (17 miles) @ 5:30 in Ventura County. Checked the temp at home and work and they both read 43 degrees. Hands very cold and tips were numb. In addition, felt the the majority of bulk on the gloves is on the top, they felt very snug (which they should) but I did not find them that comfortable. While you can get one hand in reasonably well pulling on the elastic cuff with the ungloved hand, once that hand is gloved you will have a tougher time trying to get the ungloved hand fully encounced since you have to pull the elastic cuff now with your gloved hand. Very dissapointed with the performance of this glove and will return to the local shop and look at what Revzilla has to get er done. December 9, 2013
Great cold weather glove Bought this glove especially for its gore-tex membrane. The glove is worm and i have been riding with it in heavy rain and stayed dry. At first, the gloves felt very stiff. i couldnt move my fingers or hold the bars. After a week of braking them in a little, the stiffness weakened and they got very comfy. Sizing: I have the A-stars SMX-2 summer gloves, and based my XL size on them. This glove was true to size and the XL ordered fit perfectly. Great price for a fully waterproof, warm glove.

this is not a 3 season glove Knowing that last week would be cold and wet I have decided to make the investment in a good pair of warm and waterproof gloves. Wednesday morning I departed NY for DC in a good bit of rain, I was very impressed my hands stayed dry and warm, this was at 50F. Leaving the city the temperature quickly started to drop quickly to below 37F. 1 hour into my ride my fingertips were freezing, this was unbearable but since I did not have any other gloves with me I had to wait this out for the 5 hours. At least my hands stayed dry. I thought this might only be because if the rain and cold combination but driving back Saturday, in the dry and still no warmer that 37F I had the same problem of freezing fingertips within 30-45 minutes. Since it was not raining I could play around and find out why my fingers were freezing. I have found as long as I don’t close my hand the gloves stay warm, the moment a bend my fingers I could feel the cold air coming in through the tips. I’m very disappointed in these gloves and have wasted $169, based on the review I expected that these would have lasted met good into December or even January. This is NOT is a 3 season glove, it will be too warm for summer, and now in fall they are already not doing the job. December 2, 2013
Do not work at 40 degrees and highway speeds I had my first actual test of the gloves over the weekend and I am very disappointed. In and around town at speeds of 45 mph these gloves seem to work. Once I reach speeds of 55 mph or greater my fingertips started to freeze. Absolutely not worth the 170 bucks. They also have a snug fit. I normally wear a size large and ordered the X-large as suggested. Fitment wise the X-large works, but squeezing the grips on my bike is difficult and they are not as sporty as I thought they would be. All in all I feel as if I wasted 170 bucks on a pair of uncomfortable gloves that do not keep my hands warm... November 25, 2013
Nice Cold Weather Gloves I choose these gloves for wearing in dry cold weather, but i got caught in a soaking rain and they performed very well. My hands were always dry and warm, the gloves didn't took much time to dry later. The styling is awesome, they are good with leather(icon chapter jacket), adventure(alpinestars lucerne) and tech-touring(Klim Latitude). Let's not kid ourselves, if you are spending this much on a pair of gloves, you do care about how you look on wheels. The cuffs can cause some problems if you need to wear them in the sleeves of a jacket. the woven part should be inside and the textile part should be over the jacket and sometimes it could be a difficult process depending on the jacket.Other than that i am pretty happy with these gloves.

Great gloves for high 40 to low 50 degree temperature I get off work at 4am and ride in 40-50 degree temps and these work great. May be pushing it if it's colder than this though. Fit is on the tight side but hopefully will be fine after break in period. Pretty expensive and wish it weren't so bulky around the wrist. My jacket sleeves tend to bunch up. November 4, 2013

A shopper asked: Do these feel tight when you first bought them? I just got mine and they feel a little tight. I used the size chart and measured in at 31/8 which is small so i went with a med. I have plenty of room in my finger tips just feels a little tight on the top of the palm. Will these break in after a few uses? Sep 18, 2013

Jesse K: They definitely felt a little tighter than my summer gloves. I didn't wear them a ton, maybe 6 hours total over the winter but the tightness never bothered me. They may have loosened a little, but not much. I can say that the palm seems to be kinda bunching up on me when I ride, especially the throttle side. Hope that helps. Sep 25, 2013

Amund B: Yes, they were verry tight at first. And the fingers are a bit to long. I had to take my hands of the steering and wigle my fingers and make a fist the first 5-10 rides, or I get cramps. They are still tight and a bit hard to put on, so they are best for longer trips. They are verry nice in cold and wet rides. Sep 26, 2013

A shopper asked: I have purchased the Spidi H20 glove for cold long distance riding. I am disappointed to say the least. This A* Polar glove seems like it might be better - is it? Or simply, can you tell me of a (Non-heated - my bike has heated grips) WINTER long distance glove for temperatures of 10-30 degree F during 12 - 14 hour rides? Oct 26, 2013

Robert m: I have these gloves & heated grips so needless to say my hands get warm but even if i didn't have the grips these gloves rock! Nothin gets through weather wise & the protection is awesome too w the carbon knuckles & the ring/pinky finger attached nicely but....when my hands get too hot the liner comes out w my hand & is kind of a pain to get back n just right. Also, make sure u use the size chart correctly, they run very European in fit. I wear a medium so i got a large but honestly i shouldve gotten xl which is strange cuz a LG shouldve fit correctly. Id give this glove 9/10 w the liner being the only problem. Oct 26, 2013

Jesse K: I wear these gloves for my commute to work and back in temperatures above 32 F and they do not keep my hands warm. I ride less than 10 miles and my hands aren't uncomfortable, but they are starting to get cold. I do not have heated grips, and would not recommend them for that cold of temperatures. Oct 26, 2013

A shopper asked: Will the cuff fit over a jacket or is it designed to go under the jacket? Aug 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: This is a technical Gore-Tex glove designed to be worn under jacket sleeves. If you wore it over the cuff, rain would run down your arm and into the glove. Wearing it under the cuff prevents this. Aug 17, 2012

McGrathew: These have a very close cuff, definetily designed for under the jacket. Aug 15, 2012

A shopper asked: What range of temperatures would this glove be suitable for? Seems like with the Goretex, it'd be meant to handle almost anything. Thanks Nov 20, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Alpinestars Polar Gore-Tex Glove's temperature range depends on a few factors which are listed below. A general temperature range rating should be between 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Any riding below 40 degrees should be most comfortable with heated gloves. Any riding over 60 degrees should be most comfortable with a more ventilated glove with less insulation.
