Dainese Veleta X-Trafit Gore-Tex Gloves 4.1 5 14 14
Dainese Veleta X-Trafit Gore-Tex Gloves I bought these gloves to wear with my synthetic Klim riding jacket for long road trips. What attracted me was the Gore-tex "glued" lining, the design not being overly exaggerated and the grey color matching my jacket. Although I've only worn them several times I've found them to be very lightweight and comfortable on my hands. With the designed-in safety features I'm assuming they'd offer good crash protection so my primary goal was a comfortable, waterproof riding glove. Sizing and comfort seems good but the waterproof aspect will have to wait until the next rainstorm. ~Dan September 8, 2014
Great fit Excellent gloves, not too bulky, decent air flow, easy articulation. Wrist adjustment leaves a little to be desired, but serves only a mild inconvenience at best. September 8, 2014
protection with a low profile I was browsing Gore-Tex gloves for rainy weather and went with these because they have a subdued and refined style compared to just about all the others. I like the internal hard knuckle and general toughness of the material. Huge fan of the lack of shiny plastic pieces - it has a tactical, stealthy look. They are comfortable, however can become warm with limited airflow. I was surprised to find the large fit better than the xl. There are rubbery stripes on the left hand fingertips for gripping the clutch lever in wet conditions. Thumb articulation is great. Overall movement is unhindered and the knuckle protector fits just right. X-Trafit is nice. They can appear to be a steep investment but I'm sure they will last and life's too short to mess with sticky liners. August 18, 2014
Fingers are too long and it gets really cold The fingers on these gloves are a bit too long and they really don't do a very good job of keeping out the cold. July 22, 2014
A few steps short of great I'll have to echo the other review - the fingers are strangely long given the size - the stiffness of the materials to meet the provisional standard only exaggerate the length of the fingers, as it makes them very difficult to bend. The wrist closure also doesn't seem to do great job of keeping the glove on your hand, which seems kind of ironic because of the effort made in certifying this as personal protective equipment (PPE).

Sadly lacking I really wanted to like the Veleta. I was looking for a waterproof, three-season, protective glove to fit between my Held Air and my TourMaster Winter Elite. I wanted just enough room to layer a super-thin liner glove, which on an RT with heated grips would take me down to my real winter gloves, but light enough to take into late Spring showers. I have 9 to 9.5 hands, wear a size 9 in Held, have worn size L Dainese before, and ordered an XL. XL was the correct choice — I don't think I could have fit my knuckles into the L. I found the Veleta puzzling. The knuckle protector conspired with the mid-hand shape to make the glove feel extremely constricting and tiring — it fights you when you try to grip the bars — and yet the fingers are loose and over-long. There are protectors on the second knuckles, but only the barest hint of padding on the heel of the hand, and no abrasion protection there. The palm/heel protection leaves the bones at the base of the hands exposed, which makes me think it was designed for someone with a slim, short hand and long, fat fingers. The wrist closure manages to be both uncomfortable (tightly folding the stitching of the "GORE-TEX gloves with X-TRAFIT" strip into the skin of your wrist) and ineffective — at its tightest I could still pull the glove off my hand, thanks to the elasticated section below the palm. I did like the solidity of the knuckle protection, the distortion control, and the overall stitching and construction — nice double stitching and neat seams throughout. They're good looking gloves, too. I didn't test the waterproofing, because I'll be returning them. In conclusion: nice ideas, great on paper, but missing out in a bunch of critical areas. May 8, 2014
Too bulky for everyday riding I love the fitment of these gloves and the materials. The only thing I really can't stand is the bulkiness. They make using the bike's controls really hard. I've lost much agility and response speed due to these gloves. I'am so disappointed I'm currently looking for a different pair even if not waterproof. At the end of the day my hands can get wet. No biggie. But loosing control...touch...responsiveness? No way. January 10, 2014
We'll see. I've only had them for fall/winter, which in Texas isn't saying much. I suspect there might be some ventilation issues in the summer though. November 30, 2013

Patrick C: Good fit, x-trafit, nice style. Sep 23, 2014
Marcel M: Long Travel Gore Tex Gloves Sep 13, 2014
Dan S: I've been looking for a pair of Spring/Fall gloves that offered a Gore-tex glued lining, were short and attractive without too much of the bling I see on so many of the gloves today. I also liked that it was available in grey, the color of my Klim latitude jacket. I was between the medium and large so selected the mediums to try. Dan S Aug 21, 2014
norman p: I'm disappointed in the fit of these gloves. I bought the XXL and they fit my hand good but the cuff is not big enough to get my hand in and out easily. I hardly wear them due to this. I should have returned them when I had the chance. Aug 1, 2014
Richard N: Replacing some Held Warm N Dry gloves that leaked in prolonged rain. Used to own Dainese Scout, so I knew I could trust the waterproofing and protection. May 5, 2014
Timothy C: High quality and features as shown in your video demo on the item page, good reviews from prior purchasers Feb 21, 2014
john f: looking for a non insulated gortex glove with a short cuff these gloves look perfect for those days that are not so cold but still wet out looking forward to giving them a work out !!! Jan 3, 2014
marco l: i tried on tons of gloves to replace my old ones. these ones felt perfectly formed and comfortable right from the start. i was looking for a 3 season glove that was easy to pull on or off with simple adjust once closures. Aug 26, 2013
Scott J asked: I'm really interested in this glove, but have one concern. I frequently change XM stations on my bike using the touch screen on my GPS. Some gloves work well for this and some gloves don't. The basic question is: can you operate an iPhone while wearing these gloves? If yes, then will work for for the GPS as well. Jan 24, 2014

marco l: Hi Scott. The short answer. Not that I can tell. I never tried before so just now i put on the gloves and tried to get the whatever capacitative touch screen to work. didnt have an iphone handy but tried it on both my ipad as well as my samsung galaxy cellphone. Neither worked.
Having said that, used the gloves on a 4000 mile trip through the northern states this past summer and found them to be amazingly comfortable in both dry and wet conditions. they are the most perfectly comfortable and ergonomic fit i have found so far right from new.
If operating electronics is your main concern for a riding glove then I'd suggest a different type or model. alternatively whatever type of material is used in a stylus these days you could try and coat your primary operating glove finger with....
best of luck.

Randy S: Hello Scott,

The gloves work fine on my Zumo 550 touch screen. They offer plenty of protection and although I haven't been in a pouring rain with them I have been in about 20 minutes of light rain and my hands stayed perfectly dry.

Pay close attention to the sizing recommendations because I found it to be very accurate, even though it recommended a larger size than I normally wear.

My only knocks on the glove are that it is stiff. But I believe it is just a matter of using the gloves for a while and I think they will break in and soften up.

One last thing there appears to be a tactile material on some of the fingers, I would guess for the touchscreen and it is already coming off, but they still work fine on my Zumo. I was a little surprised though given the cost of the glove.

Scott J: Randy, Thanks so much for chiming in. I also run a 550, so great to know. Still on the fence with these gloves (too many choices), but will likely give them a try. Jan 29, 2014
john f: the Veleta xTrafit fits well no slipping in the palms or fingers great grip while riding I do not use a IPhone or gps I feel these gloves would work just fine for changing your xm station the only issue I have with these gloves are a little harder to get your hand in as they fit snug on wrist once on they are great like them so far Feb 8, 2014

Adella C: Left hand: Negative! Right hand: Negative!
If you really like this glove, maybe you could setup something on the gloves which could control the touchable screen. Anyway, it doesn't work by itself. Sorry about it!

Richard N asked: I used to wear the original (non-EVO) Scout in Large, now lost. It was a snug fit, almost to the point of being difficult to make a fist. What would my sizing be in the Veleta?

The video suggests that it's more of an "American fit", and it doesn't have as much insulation, so large or XL? Without the insulation I'd probably be interested in fitting a slim liner inside.

(For other reference: I'm a 9 in Held, and a comfortably loose Large/10 in my Tourmaster Winter Elite II.)

john f: Size chart pretty close to accurate fit my hand measures 10 1/4 I got 2x gloves fit very well al little long in fingers not bad though and I would not be able to wear a extra liner and note that cuff opening is a snug fit these are very comfortable gloves and are plenty warm in 35 to 60 degree weather they seam to breath well and I love that they keep my hands dry Pacific Northwest daily riding is usually rain I love these gloves so far hope this helps you out keep the shinny up side rubber side down Apr 25, 2014

Scott J: While I don't have any experience with the other gloves you mention, I ordered XL and nearly returned them for being too snug. The knucle protectors pressed against my knuckles and ached after a while. Over time, they loosened up enough to be comfortable. If you are on the fence between L and XL, I would go larger.

Randy S: Hello Richard,

I too usually wear a size large however after using Revzilla's sizing guide I ordered a size 10/XXL and to my surprise they fit perfectly.

They are snug when I am putting them on though, perhaps I have wide palms.

Daniel H asked: Regarding size. I'm a "perfect" Large in Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves, will the Dainese stretch that much that I would need to buy a Medium? Oct 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Randy S: Daniel, I would recommend using the sizing guide on the RevZilla site. I found it to be accurate...at least for me.

I generally require a size large in a pair of gloves however for this particular glove I ordered a 2XL per the fitting guide and they fit perfectly.

Hope this helps,

Randy

Meleah G: From my experience - this summer riding thru AK - this is more of a molded glove with not much stretch to it. As a side note, it held up well in cold rainy weather and was not too hot in summer temps. I bought the white/blue. Hope this helps! Oct 29, 2013

George A: When I bought mine I was not sure if I buy L ( my usual size) or XL to be on the safe side so I went for XL and I wish I did not. So go definitely for your usual size ( medium in your case) I am sure it will fit ok. Great gloves though. Jun 3, 2014

Gavin T asked: I'm considering between Veleta and the REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves. Both are Xtra Fit Goretex which I like. My question is, which is more suited for Summer time riding? From the description it seems that the Phantom is pretty good for that.

I've already tried the Veleta, and it does seem a little hot.

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.
