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
Great fall weather gloves wanted something between my hot weather summer gloves and my deep winter gloves. these seem to fit right in there. they kept my hands worm and dry during a 30min ride in mild rain. Not had a get off with them, but they seem durable and have nice protection. should last a good while. October 21, 2013
Everything ya need - nuthin' ya don't. I'm in the process of replacing all my "waterproof" gear with bona fide Gore Tex. I've been looking for a glove to use in the 60 to 80 degree range and all summer long in the wet. I wanted something to fill the void between my Alaska and Dirt gloves. The Veleta is more robust than it looks and has a strong pre-curved shape that feels good on the grips. The palm and knuckle protective elements you'd expect from Dianese are present. The gauntlets are made to fit easily under the cuffs but not over. The Gore Tex x-trafit membrane is bonded to the outer layer and the inner liner is minimal. I donned them in 92 degree heat and of course they were warm compared to my mesh gloves but the materials breathe so my hands did not get clammy. So far I think the Veleta is just what I was looking for - perfect for my intended use. August 20, 2013
Comfortable dry gloves slightly long in fingers These are my go-to gloves for damp or wet riding. They are comfortable and kept my hands dry and comfortable during a several hour ride through fog and rain in the NC mountains. The fingers are long for my hands but are better then most gloves. I could still operate my Garmin with the gloves on although helmet straps are a problem. The liner is bonded to the outer glove. This keeps the liner from coming out when taking the glove off and makes it easier to get the glove on. They are a vast improvement on my other pair where the leather outer get soaked and holds water so your hand eventually is wet and cold. July 22, 2013
Ok so far Have yet to try in super downpour, but ok in light rain so far. July 11, 2013
great gloves the gloves are very comfortable the design is quiet July 1, 2013
Just the gloves I was looking for I have heated Gerbings, and textile mesh gloves, but wanted a short gauntlet fall/spring/rain glove. Called and spoke to John who directed me to these gloves. Just what I was looking for. Short gauntlet, Gortex and good protection. Use them down to the 40s with heated grips and they keep my hands dry. Like that the Gortex is bonded, keeping it in place when removing them. April 16, 2013

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

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
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.

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!

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,

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

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.

  • Chestwidth: Measure from under/top of armpit cross 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.
