Exceptional Gloves Offering Exceptional Protection
Shortly after I received these gloves a motorist decided to ignore my turn signal, and zoom past me while I was making a left turn. My bike collided with her car and these gloves took a decent impact from the collision.

The cow hide at the knuckles was damaged a little by the impact, and I slid a little on the rey skin. Nothing made it through the glove, and the impact didn't feel significant.

While maybe not as breathable as I would love, these gloves are exception for protection and water resistance. The GoreTex really helps the hand not to feel sweaty.

I would recommend these to anyone.

Very nice glove, runs small
I've got about 1,500 miles on these gloves, so far, and I'm very happy with them. I had to return the first order to get a larger size, but I"m pleased otherwise. They are expensive, and I expect them to last for quite awhile.

Comfortable, high quality waterproof gauntlets
I purchased these for early and late season wear when I'm more interested in staying warm enough than in staying cool enough. For the hot days I have a pair of Klim Induction gloves and they are perfect for that duty. In cooler weather if I can keep the wind off, my heated grips provide all I need to be comfortable. The Rainstars felt broken in the moment I put them on. The second pair, anyway. I'm normally and XL and first ordered these in size 11. I could get them on, but just barely. A quick replacement with a set of 12s and I was good to go. They aren't loose, but they don't bind anywhere and all the padding and velcro lines up just right. The gloves are quite sturdy with thick leather in all the stress areas, but the palms are soft and have good feel on the controls. Cuffs can go inside or outside my Roadcrafter jacket. I had them out for about 45 minutes at 35F and with the heated grips it was easily tolerable. I sure wouldn't have picked these for riding through the heat of summer, but likewise I didn't want a true winter glove with all of the bulk for cool weather rides. Excellent gloves.

Great all around!
I live in So. Cal. we have generally mild weather. Since I commute, it can be as cold as 50F in the mornings and 95F by mid afternoon. I needed a glove that covered that range. This glove is perfect. One note, using the size chart, I was suppose to get size 11... I went for the 12 which fits perfectly. As always, Revzilla made life easy for me. Thanks guys.

Well constructed- need to test on a big rain ride
I purchased these gloves so that I have something functional in heavy rain conditions. Up until now I have been using rain covers over my regular gloves and just got tired of dealing with that setup on longer rides in the rain. I normally wear a size 9.5 glove. The size 10 Rainstars are a snug but comfortable fit on me. Construction of the glove appears to be first rate. Use the Held measurement guide and follow the measurement instructions. The lining is constructed so you can pull your hand in and out in rainy conditions without the liner separating from the rest of the glove. The gauntlet is not long on this glove. The gauntlet is not a large diameter either so don't expect that the glove will go over a heavy jacket. My rain jacket has an inner sleeve. The Rainstar gauntlet wlll go over the inner sleeve and under the outer sleeve...should be a good setup to keep water out. I think these will work fine for all three seasons except for winter. The big question at this point is will they maintain their waterproofness over a reasonably long life? That will be the real test.

Excellent
I bought these gloves right before a week long trip as the only waterproof gloves I had before were winter gloves and I wanted something that was waterproof but not as heavy/warm. As it turns out it rained quite a bit on our trip so these got put to the test and I can report that they worked exactly as advertised, no leaks. I will note that in other gloves, including other Held gloves I wear a 9 but in these I needed a 10. The price is steep but if you're looking for a warm weather waterproof glove you'd be hard pressed to find something better.

Ok for warm weather riding
I purchased these gloves because I tire of ending a day with the pruned out hands I get while riding in the rain while wearing my regular gloves. I ride in North Carolina and during the summer it rains quite often. If you wait for a day to ride where you can be reasonably sure you will not get wet, you will not ride all summer long.

I wanted a glove that would keep my hands dry but not be insulated as it is usually 95 plus degrees here in the summer. So far these gloves have done what I have asked them to. The review on the Revzilla site helped me make my decision.

I will be honest. I am skeptical when it comes to goretex or any other "breathable" fabric in regards to being "waterproof". Being in the military, I have experienced all sorts of uncomfortable weather conditions and I have not found goretex to offer much in the way of keeping me dry when the heavy rains come. After a few hours goretex is soaked and I am wet. I have not experienced that sort of rain in these gloves yet so I will not comment on their ability to keep your hands dry in heavy rain. Just know that goretex is not as good a rubber, in fact nothing is as good as seam sealed rubber. I am tempted to purchase some waterproofing sealant wax for leather and treat them with that. It will add a serious level of waterproofing to the gloves and would absolutely give you at least 80% more waterproofing than as the gloves are from the manufacturer. (Google “Sno-seal”).
I will comment on the fit and durability of the gloves:

-The fit is a bit snug, which is comfortable actually. I did go bigger than I usually do, I measured my hand and was in between sizes, I opted for the larger. It was the correct choice.
-I like most that these gloves are not flashy. Solid black in color and the armor and knuckle protection are conservative in appearance, not in function. I really like that.
-There is some girth in these gloves, obviously the goretex lining and the felt next to your hands. I have not taken them off or put them on over wet hands yet, but I don’t think that the liner will be an issue. It seems to be solidly in place and I don’t think it will pull out of the glove as I have experienced in the past.
-There is perforation in the leather between the fingers, I assume that this is to allow the hands to “breathe” as goretex advertises the ability to do. I did not feel any significant airflow when riding but you can be assured… If AIR can get there, then so can water.
-The palm is leather and there is still some good dexterity and feel for the controls.
-There is a rubber heel pad, it helps hold onto the controls, a very nice feature.
-I have never been one to try and use a shield squeegee, but there is one there if you need it.
-The gauntlet is not restrictive at all and will hold the cuff of your sleeve down. Unless you have thumb loops on your jacket, this is a nice feature.

Overall I really like the glove and would have given it five stars if I were convinced that the goretex will actually keep your hands dry in heavy rain. If I experience this and they do work, I will come back here and update this review with the fifth star.

NEED MORE BREAK-IN THAN MOST HELD GLOVES
I've worn exclusively Held gloves ("Steves" for many years, but not the new version), and these are the first that truly require some break-in time. The left is tighter than the right (another first for me with Held).

DO TAKE THE TIME TO BREAK THESE IN BEFORE EMBARKING ON A LONG RIDE...

Since I haven't yet tested them on my upcoming long trip, all I can say is that they are well-made and handsome as always.
Will report more when I've put a few thousand miles on them.

Great Rain Gloves
I just recently took these gloves on a 7000 mile trip during July and August. My primary gloves were lightweight summer gloves with the Held gloves used during the rain and colder mountain passes. The gloves remained dry during hours of riding in heavy rain. The gloves breathe well and were comfortable until the temperatures began approaching 90 degrees. After that, the gloves were warm. I did wear the gloves in temperatures down to 42 degrees in the rain and they were comfortable with the heated grips on the low setting. I was very satisfied with the performance of the gloves and will continue to keep these gloves on the bike for cold weather or rain. These gloves are expensive, but the performance was great.

Great gloves for Bay Area
These gloves are very comfortable and keep my hands warm. They also appear to have great protection (which I haven't tested). I commute to SF about 1 hour each way and it's been in the low 50's in the AM. I'm guessing that your hands might start getting a bit cold in the 40's without heated grips. As for fit, the fingers are a bit shorter than rev it...which works for me. These fit over or under the cuff, even with a Klim jacket with small cuffs. These are great winter gloves for California.

I wanted a waterproof gauntlet style glove for the summer. I'm hoping this won't be to warm but I wasn't ready to spend the extra $100 for the Held Air N Dry. We'll see this summer if I'm right or not & I'll leave a review in the fall.

Does the inner lining bunch up when removing the glove???
A shopper on Jun 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely not. On top of that, they are a great cool weather gloves if used in conjunction with heated grips as there is no venting. The Gore Tex does it's job as one's hands do not get sweaty. I recommend these gloves to everybody looking for a rain glove as they are so much more than that.
What the difference betweed the Rainstar and the Rain Storm glove? Im looking for a waterproof light weight glove
steve y on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know what the difference is but the RainStar gloves are good up to about 75 F .. over that is gonna be warm unless its raining. They do run a little small on sizing , i ordered a large pair that was a little small . i kept them hopping they would stretch while breaking in . They did just the right thumb is a tad short.
How is the fit of this glove? I have a Held Agadir which is a size 8 (M), should I expect this Rainstar to fit the same way?

Thanks
PenangKia on May 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Rainstar should fit true to size compared with other Held gloves but sizing runs a bit small compared with other brands. I'm a size 9-9.5 in other manufacturer's gloves but I ended up in a size 10 Rainstar. I used the sizing guidance on the Revzilla product page and it gave me an accurate fit.
Is the Gor-Tex lining attached to the chassis of the glove throughout or is it a free floating pocket attached only at the rim allowing it to pull inside out when having damp/wet hands like many other lined gloves?
