Incredible gloves After a few different pairs of a-stars, rockets, and teknics I think dianese will be my go to brand for gloves. Awesome quality! Great feel on the grips and overall excellent gloves. I can't think of a better balance of protection and comfort on the street. Hands down the best glove I have found. February 15, 2015
Saved my hands When I first got this glove, it was more of an upgrade to go along with a new ride. I had recently purchased a Yamaha fz1 and wanted some gear to suit the new power of my bike. After several long road-trips and few seasons of riding I have to say this glove is very comfortable. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and during a return home after a road-trip I high-sided and trashed my bike. The amount of force in the crash should've crippled me, but thanks to the new gear I walked away perfectly fine. The gloves are actually still usable, but I decided to get a new pair and put the crashed set on my wall as a reminder. The only complaint I've got is that these gloves can get a bit warm without any perforation. It's not unbearable amounts of heat, but I wouldn't recommend them for a 107 degree trackday. January 13, 2015
Overall good product These gloves fits great and provides solid protection. Although I do have a complain about them, the rings of the wrist adjustment are on the outside of the gloves, so if you land on your wrists, there's a higher chance that these rings might break your wrists because they are metal and sit right next to your fragile wrist bones. I can see that the more expensive gloves put the rings on the inside and I'm sure that Dainese is aware of this risk. Then this makes me wonder why they make these gloves this way and it doesn't look like it's a expensive design. I noticed this because I did broke my wrist once(not with these ones on though). December 17, 2014
Nice product Very good, regarding product, delivery and usage. Thank you RevZilla December 10, 2014
Gloves tested -saved my fingers Never thought of doing product reviews till recent accident. To anybody wanting good protection gloves this is the cheapest as they get and I would still say they are far more worth then a 150 on their quality and overall protection. Had a run in with a SUV skidded for dozens of feet and couldn't be more happier with the gloves got to love the little sliders on the little fingers they helped a lot as the leather alone on ordinary gloves doesn't give a lot of time sliding before the asphalt starts tearing at your skin. Even after sliding thru half the street I still could of reused them if the paramedics didn't cut thru the two straps. Rode from below freezing to 90 F great for the colder days and actually not that bad for summer although the hands do get a little sweaty after a longer ride. Got the black and white gloves awesome style. Getting them again next season revzilla better not stop selling them Recommend November 17, 2014
Good Features, solid protection, RUNS SMALL Bought these for a track day, so I didn't really have time to return them when I realized the ran small. They're breaking in to where it's comfortable now, but I definitely should have gone a size up. Otherwise these are excellent gloves. Solid construction, fairly durable, love the protective palm slider and the pinky distortion control. VENTILATION IS NEARLY NONEXISTENT, and they are NOT very comfortable just fyi, I didn't expect either of these things on what is basically a budget track gauntlet though, so that wasn't a hangup with me. Not having the seam problem that a couple of other people on here appeared to have. Great grove for a decent price. October 27, 2014
High Quality~ Very high quality materials and construction. The protective features gives you a piece of mind when you're out riding. Not as cumbersome as the other full featured GP gloves. October 22, 2014
Very impressed with Dainese I started out searching for an entry level gauntlet to be my first gloves. When I tried on a Dainese jacket, I immediately became impressed with the styling, comfort, and fit of their products which led me to the Carbon Cover ST gloves. Dainese does well to impress with their street built gauntlets that offer great protection, comfort, and styling. The micro-elastication provides a very comfortable ride in a "sport" riding position. The knuckle mold is noticeable, but doesn't cause discomfort even through the MSF course where grabbing the levers was an all day activity. So far construction is doing great. No unraveling stitches or busted seams and the air flow is just right for it's solid design. If you're looking for your first gauntlet glove or just a solid, stylish street gauntlet these gloves are a great choice! They were definitely worth the extra money in my book compared to entry level gauntlets. September 23, 2014

Kyle E: Best full leather race glove for the money! May 28, 2014
Carlos F: It was between this and the Scorpion SG3 gauntlet gloves. I wanted something I could use with my heated glove liners and also use at the track (for the very few times I'll be doing that). SG3 is a little too perforated for the heated glove liners to work well. As well, I like the Dainese style and this is my first ever Dainese purchase. While I like the gloves, they fall short of my Scorpion SGS gloves (which I LOVE), both in style and feel (the kangaroo palm is awesome). May 7, 2014

Jason C: For longer rides (more than an hour), 60. Rode out of Indy in the morning this summer...was barely 60...hands got uncomfortable.

Max, again for long rides and hugely humidity dependent, over 85 was not much fun...if humidity is low...can push it up a bit. They breath, but not much.

I think the gloves were designed more for protection than" comfort"...they ARE comfortable though.

Bobby A: I don't think they will. This is leather and it does not have waterproof seams. I would not recommend wearing this during rain. I had got caught in an unexpected rain shower (for about 10 to 12 miles) and it a good amount of water got through.

I hope this helps.

Matthew C: I imagine they're like any other leather glove, they will resist rain up to a point. They will be moist, pliable and itchy after a 20 minute ride in the rain, after which they will need to be air dried. Feb 24, 2015

Darci B: The gloves have held up great in the rain. The leather seems to hold its size well when wet and when they dry. The gloves have a great bike to hand feel and it's not diminished at all in the rain. Feb 24, 2015

Dana G: I'm in Seattle, so I do ride in rain. They hold up well in light rain, but because they are leather, they will absorb water. They dry out and fit better to your hand afterwards, though. Feb 24, 2015

Eyvind M: They run true to size.
So, I'm pretty certain a XL would fit you well.

I'm sized to a L, but I chose an M because my fingers are shorter.
So, my fingers now fit me right, but my palm was pretty tight.

I've had them for over 6 months now, and they still look brand new.
On those six months I've ridden about 8,000 miles with them. They don't stretch much.
The M fits me tight, but fits me. So, the XL would fit you just right.

BTW, excellent choice of glove, the protection is awesome. Check the sliders on your palms.

You'll love them.

John H: I've never been ab;e to determine the correct size of any brand of gloves by measuring, including Outdoor Research and Black Diamond ski gloves.

In inexpensive gloves I almost always wear XL, Large tend to fit in more expensive gloves, and for me, $140 is on the more expensive side.

I now go with Anthony's Video recommendations. My hands are apparently about the same size as his. He wears either L or XL depending on the brand, with exceptions. He said these were a little larger than Alpinestars, I believe, for which he wears XL. He said that he would wear an L in these and that's what I ordered.

Perfect fit. A little tight to put on but once on, very comfortable, and of course they are leather and will fit even better with wear. Good luck.

Jerem K: I'm trying to decide between the medium and large. Since you purchased the large and it was the "perfect fit", would you mind sharing your hand measurement? Thanks. Jul 27, 2014
Brandon B: +1 to Eyvind M in all regards;

The gloves run true even after 6 months of commuting / pleasure rides (in a size M @ about 22.5cm).

Hand size is pretty average overall and given my measurements opted for Medium size, fit well off the bat (if maybe a little snug) but the elastication carried it through the break-in progress. Every day I put these gloves on they feel more and more comfortable. Have held up very well so far can't praise them highly enough.

Perforated on the inside of several fingers so mind the cold weather!

"" ": Hmm...my Medium gloves seem to fit well, I just measured around my knuckles and it was 20.3 CM's, although the glove does have extra room around the knuckle area, my fingers go to almost the tips, especially on the middle finger. I think 22 could still fit in a medium, assuming you don't have extra long fingers. Oct 1, 2014

George N asked: What is the gauntlet protection like on this glove? I'm looking at potential replacements for my Teknic (RIP) Violator gloves, which I found to have excellent protection at a similar price point. Is there any hard armor that goes on the gauntlet, or is what I'm seeing just a foam piece? Thanks in advance! Apr 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Eyvind M: No, there's no armor on the gauntlet.
I bought them because of the top protection, but also and most importantly because of the palm slider.
Very very durable. About 25,000km in the last year. Still look new.

jacob t asked: Can someone tell me how the back of the hand protector is different from the Dainese Druids ST gloves? I am having a difficult time telling a safety difference. I see that the Dainese Druids ST gloves have the "Dianese tickler". Feb 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris C: Hi, I've only done about 1000kms with these gloves (they sat on a shelf for a while), they were not too comfortable initially, but are now mostly broken in and very comfortable.
I don't know about the Druids, but these gloves have the carbon protection on knuckles and finger joints etc. The velco closure at the cuff and the wrist area work better for fit than any other type I've had.
No idea what the tickler is. Wouldn't what to get too close to one of those.
Feb 13, 2014
Reply to Chris Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Mario R: The Druids are more of a track style glove. I like the flexibility of the Carbon Cover for the road where I do most of my riding and don't need the additional protection (or cost) of the Druids. In my personal experience, I put my palms down when I deck, If you don't mind the extra cost of the Druids, and find they fit comfortably. I would recommend them. I like the compromise of the Carbon cover. Feb 12, 2014

Gordon W: I measured my had, and fell between 8.5" and 9". After talking with customer service, I went down a size to the medium. They fit right. My fingers go to the end of each part in the glove, with no extra material.
They are a little tight to slip on, around the elastic material by the wrist. Once on, they are very comfortable.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
