Dainese Jerico EVO Gore-Tex Gloves
Great for cold weather; Tough to put on.
After being absolutely sick and tired of having numb, frozen hands on my daily commute, I spent the money...
1. The Jericos are super warm down to the mid/upper 30s.
2. The inside is very plush and cushy; they're very comfortable.
3. The grip feel is decent for a bulky winter glove. I can easily feel and operate all the controls with ease. CAVEAT: This is relative to the glove. Don't expect the same feel of a leather track glove or motocross glove.
4. Heat from heated grips radiate into the gloves well.
5. Wind does not penetrate - for a winter glove this IS a good thing.
1. These gloves are VERY difficult to put on. The inner gauntlet has a tight elastic band which hugs your wrist as you slide your hand in. There are two tabs on the top and bottom to help you pull it up and over your jacket sleeves - but they don't help much. It honestly takes me a good minute or so to get each glove on comfortably.
2. The protection is present, but not as much as I would have liked for the price. The knuckle box seems fine. And the fingers have a tiny little slider at the joints. But the gloves lack protection in areas where you'll actually slide (ie. the palm and sides).
I wear XL in Alpinestars gloves, XL in FOX, and an XL in the Scorpion SG3 glove. Per the reviews, I chose a large for the Jerico. I'm happy with my fit, but would actually be curious to try on a Med. With my hands off the bike, there's definitely extra room in the fingers. When I grab the bars, the gloves tighten up and the extra room goes away. But still, these gloves may be sized just a tad large.
Overall, I like these gloves and am happy with my purchase. If I had to pick one gripe, it would be how tricky they are to put on. But once they're on, they're solid and I am totally warm and comfortable wearing them.

Great fitting & comfortable
These gloves fit perfectly with no loose internal lining when putting them on and off. They are extremely comfortable and even though they are quite bulky you still get good feel on the handlebars and levers and the navman screen. So far they are warmer than my other gloves and I'm confident they will be warm enough in winter.

Nearly impossible to put on with damp hands
I live in Seattle and do a lot of riding on wet days. Inevitably, gloves come off and on during the course of a day and that's when the trouble starts.
These gloves are really difficult to get on with damp hands. Stop for gas, a pit stop, whatever...get some rain on your hands. Then comes a frustrating wrestling match while trying to them on. The liners fight you all the way. When you manage to get the first one on, you're really in for it with the second one because your already gloved hand isn't very helpful in the process.
I've worn lots of gloves on lots of rainy days. I have never struggled with gloves like I did with these. On one very cold, very rainy day I actually gave up in frustration and ended up riding home gloveless.
I strongly recommend taking a pass.
A suggestion to reviewers - if a glove is marketed specifically as a rain glove, you include trying to get it on with wet hands (or even just slightly wet hands) as a review criteria.

Very comfortable and looks great!
These gloves are overall really good. They are not as warm as I hoped they would be, but everything else about them has beat my expectations. The gloves are very comfortable and allow for good dexterity compared to others that I have tried in this category. I think they look really great having a simple style that for some reason is rare in motorcycle gear.

I live in the Pacific Northwest, ride a lot and commute year round so I needed a winter glove that would defeat the elements and protect me if I went down. After reading reviews, and because of previous experience with Dainese I chose these Jerico’s.
The fit is excellent, I typically wear a 2XL which is what I ordered and couldn’t be happier. I was a little dubious about the usability of the double cuff. I thought it might be difficult to fasten my jacket sleeves over the inner cuff with one gloved hand. I was right. These gloves are fat and I simply don’t have the dexterity to do that to the second glove easily. I suppose, if I was planning to ride several hours in a driving rain I might spend the time messing with it but for shorter trips or light rain I wouldn’t bother. The inner cuff fits over my jacket easily so I wear both on the outside. It still takes a fair amount of manipulation to position the cuffs of the second glove. The outer cuff zipper fobs are very hard to grasp with gloved fingers. It fits very tight and requires committed tugging on the zipper. Even then I can’t zip it all the way. I wonder how long the fob will last. My commute takes about 25 minutes and in heavy rain my jacket doesn’t even get wet under the glove cuff.
I have not used these for anything but commuting yet but I’m confident they’ll be warm enough on longer trips. My bike has heated grips and wind deflectors. I have noticed that if I keep the gloves in the house before I leave for work, with temperatures around 40 deg, my hands are quite warm, bordering on a little too warm. If, however, I leave them in the garage where they can cold soak, my hands never seem to warm up. It takes a while for my grip heat to soak through.
• They’re very comfortable, warm and totally water-proof.
• They take a lot longer to get on than any other glove I’ve ever owned.
• I am very happy with my purchase.

Excellent fit and feel.
Good for short rides at 40 degrees or less. Hands will get cold on the longer rides. Glove feels great and it is still easy to work controls. Excellent overall glove.

They are waterproof and might even be wind proof but they are not cold proof. They are good for spring and fall but comes winter look for warm glove elsewhere.

Thought I was buying a glove to ride in the 30s or lower....nah..not even close.
All of my gear is Dianese and have been very satisfied with my purchases till I bought these gloves. I ride in all weather conditions and especially during the cold, so I needed my gloves that will keep my finger tips protected from the cold. This glove is useless under 40 F for any ride which is longer than 45-60 minutes. So I went ahead and bought heated grips, but even with the heated grips, the finger tips freezing problem still remained. I am kinda lost in terms of what to do, will the heated gloves work, dont know either. I have already invested enough money into this glove + a heated grip, but still cant go on longer than 60 minute rides, which is a bummer.
Dont waste your money on this glove if you are want it as a winter glove, the water proof part of it should work, havent really rode in rain with these on yet.
