Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
Great glove, good look, well made.
Have endured some nasty downpours with these gloves and my hands did stay dry. these are well made with good materials and a nice look.
Haven't bailed or dirt-napped my bike so I can't speak to the protection but they look like they'll handle a get off very well.

Gloves look great and does keep out water... However, fits too long I got a medium and everything fits good except the figure is about 1" too long.... Drive me nuts... Overall simple and functional for cold and wet weather riding... Not a long 34degree weather glove.... You will need heated gloves or handle for that...

Great glove for short rides in wet, or in temps above 45F
I've had this glove for 2 years now. I ride all year round in temps down to 25F. I ride in the wet a lot and have a lot of experiance with this glove.
Pros - Extremely comfortable for long rides. The visor wipe is a great feature and a little sad that my new glove does not have this. Will keep you dry in down pours for about 30-45min.
Cons- These are not cold weather gloves. I repeat, these are not for cold weather. I am from MI and am very used to the cold. These gloves will keep your fingers warm for about 10 min with temps around 45deg. Once you go below that temp, or are on the road longer then expect chilly finger tips. Below 35deg expect painful finger tips after about 10min. My palms, and the tops of my hands stay plenty warm but your fingertips will suffer. As for the water proof (resistance) its not good. On a 10-15min ride they are fine, they should dry off after about 4 hours and then good to go. Any kind of prolonged riding in the wet though and they do get damp. Once that happens forget it, they will be wet for some time. I have riden 4 hours in the wet and my hands were damp. Not completely soaked through but damp.
In the end, if your a fair weather rider who wants a glove that is good for milder temps, and the occasional light rain then these are perfect. I comfortably have worn these to temps reaching 75deg. Outside of that you will be dissapointed.

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.
