Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
The gloves are definitely not waterproof. I used these gloves during a light tropical storm which resulted in my fingers being completely soaked. The gloves are also too thick for my taste, which made it difficult to control certain ergonomic features on my bike. Overall, i'm disappointed in these gloves and wished I'd had bought something else that was cheaper.

1st pair of Gloves
I've had these gloves for 2 years. For my 70 mile commute one way to work these gloves are great for Spring and Fall at highway speeds. I ride a CBR250R. On the highway these gloves are perfect for 45-75 deg F. If you are just riding around town these gloves are good down to about 35 deg F. They are very comfortable and were waterproof when I first bought them, but now 2 years later they are merely water resistant. For what I have put them through and the price I paid I could not ask for any better. I purchased a set of waterproof lobsterstyle over gloves and they not only keep the gloves dry, but also allow me to use them a bit deeper into the cold.

Great glove for the price
So far it keeps my hands comfortable from 40 to 75 deg F. Any warmer and my hands get a little bit warm and clammy at slower speeds (not a big deal to me). 40 is the coldest it's gotten since I purchased them and it prevented my hands from getting uncomfortably cold with a 30 min freeway ride. Haven't tested them in the rain yet.
The fingers are a bit short for my hands. I ordered the large as my hand was 3 & 3/4" per the measuring chart. The width feels fine, but my fingers hit the tips. If you have longer fingers, then you may run into the same problem. This also causes the cinch strap to sit a little higher on your wrist than you would expect. I needed gloves so I decided to just go ahead and use them without first trying the next size up. My riding is typically <1hr at a crack so I haven't gotten the "painful fingertip" syndrome that some people say happens on long rides.

Great hand protection
As an essential part of overall protection, the Icon Patrol really fit the bill. The synch design works really well and is easy to grip when wearing. Although u still have not dropped with these on I feel the construction will prove great for my hands. Made out of highly durable textiles. The zipper feels good with easy to grab pull tabs. The Velcro closure has a large pad and is easy to close and open.

Good for the winter and rain!
As long as you are only planning on using this glove during the winter, it is perfect.
I rode all winter in temps around 35F and even after riding at 60mph on the highway, my fingers never got uncomfortably cold. They would start to ache after about 20 mins, but by no means was it unbearable. So overall, they kept really warm.
They also do well in the rain with the little wiper on the finger. My hands were perfectly dry after being down-poured on.
Protection is a little limited compared to a more expensive glove, but I have the feeling that they would do just fine in an accident.

Really Warm But Palm Side is Too Thick
Owned this pair of gloves for a few years now. They are very well built and VERY warm considering I live up here in Toronto, ON, Canada. Using them mostly in spring and fall, or while riding in rain in the summer.
What I don't like is they could keep the back side thick but make the palm side thinner. It felt like you are gripping the throttle with an extra layer of thick bath towel. Thought that it would wear down after some use but it didn't really wear down.
Also, the waterproof linear is built-in and it doesn't have additional liner that you can wash so it takes forever to dry. Since the palm side is thick, unless you are the passenger, I really don't recommend to add your own liner as it would be too thick to feel the bike controls.
I still recommend them if you have to ride in really cold times. If you have heated grip, I upgraded my bike later, I would look for thinner waterproof gloves.

Great for my morning commute in the Midwest, probably would not be my choice for long distance in cold weather but good for 20-40 minute commutes. Dexterity is decent for such big thick gloves. The visor swipe is a great feature. Styling is great and fit is right on. Good gloves for under $100
