Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
Awesome for cold weather, good protection
I bought these for the fall/winter season here in east TN. Knuckles have max protection, palms feel like they could take a slide, battle hide is wearing in very nice. The little squeegee on the left pointer finger is actually pretty handy for bugs and what not. Not for riding when it's warm that's for sure, my hands start sweating even in 30-40 degree weather, But it's better than being cold. The Velcro gauntlet type deal has held up nicely, when sinching up around jacket cuffs the wind seems to glide right over. The fitment inside the glove was a little tight but has broken in and is feeling good. My only concern is, on the outside, I have an extra 1/4" to 1/2" in spare length at finger tips. They are for cold temps so they are a bit bulky. When you first get them on, controls will feel a little numb. But once you get used to it, it's no problem.. Regardless they look pretty sweet., glad I got em'

Great Fall/Spring glove, but it gets cold below 40°
I purchased these gloves to use during the fall/winter/spring months, but quickly found that my hands got pretty cold below 40°F. I have yet to use them in 80°+ weather, but they are amazing between 78 and 45°F keeping your hands dry and warm, but not hot. I think that the breathability of the gloves start to limit their insulation around 45°F and I have had to use glove liners to get down to the 30s. The coldest I have used them is in the mid 20s and even with a thin liner my hands were almost to the point of numbing. This with the fact that the palm is a little too thick to truly feel the controls leaves me in a dangerous position when trying to operate the turn signals, high beam switch, or horn while riding. I may look into heated liners for next year, but for now this is the only item in my gear collection which is holding me back from regularly taking my bike out when its 30°F and below.
* Works great in cool weather and breaths when its warm outside
* Keeps your hands dry (coming from someone riding a naked bike)
* Pulls on and off easy and the gauntlet creates a great seal over any jacket cuff
* The gloves really don’t stretch into the frigid part or the year alone and need liners to even make it below freezing
* The palms are a little thick and the loose liner makes it hard to feel controls
Overall, I would recommend this glove to anyone who needs a Fall/Spring glove and especially those who are fair weather riders looking to extend the season just a month or so longer.

Good pair of gloves
Good glove for commuters, short trips (around 200 miles)
The gloves are fully waterproof, never had a problem.
My fingers get a little cold when I'm riding in mid 30s. I think a nice glove liner would solve the problem.
Its a bit bulky but you get used to that.

These gloves are awesome!
Perfect gloves for riding longer into the colder seasons. It's December and I'm still riding.

Not bad for the price
These are my first pair of motorcycle specific gloves. I was on a budget when buying them, and I really wanted a gauntlet style of glove that was waterproof and had a decent amount of protection. I've used these both on my F650GS in 28ºF weather, and on a borrowed 250 Ninja in 60º weather. I have wind deflectors and heated grips on my GS, so in the 28º weather I was doing just fine for less than an hour rides. Just my fingertips were cold. They are more on the heavy side for insulation, but in the New England area I would use these for probably every season except summer. They provide enough warmth but still allow you to feel the controls well enough. After trying on and looking at First Gear, Joe Rocket, Alpinestar, Cortech, BILT, and Dianese gloves, I chose these for the protection, price, and full gauntlet, and I'm happy I did.

Great gloves for the money
I love these gloves. They are a lot better than riding in super bulky ski gloves.

These gloves were good for the short time that I have them. I was only able to wear them three times before they were stolen off my bike with my helmet. They are a little bulky but the fit was good and seemed to keep the cold winds and rain out. I believe they will work great as fall riding, but when you start getting to the colder temperatures you might need more protection.
