Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
Good glove for the price.
Purchased these gloves for colder weather. First ride with them temps were in the low 40s. Hands were very comfortable, kept the wind out nicely. Temps have come up, rode in the 50s and hands got a bit sweaty. Overall very pleased.

Good gloves, waterproof, pretty warm
I've been riding around the Seattle area in these. We're in that awkward period of time where it can't seem to decide if it's winter or spring or summer. Yesterday I went on an 80+ mile ride down south, about 50-something degrees with some light rain.
My hands stayed dry, but after a while the air flow can still make them a little chilly. Ultimately I never reached that point where my fingers were too cold to feel anything, but I still had to stop and warm them up every 45 miles or so. The great trade-off is that they also didn't get clammy or sweaty inside the liner--it's very breathable.
The gauntlets have a cool style, and I feel like I can comfortably operate all of the bike's controls in these gloves--not nimble enough to fasten my chin strap though.

Excellent quality for the money!
For a waterproof glove under $100 mark this is the best glove around. Great fit. Easy on and off. Nice gauntlet micro Velcro closure! Keeps warm down to 40 degrees, then maybe something a little more insulated would be in order. But I Love my Icon Patrol Gloves!

Great cold weather gloves.
I was going use these gloves for a winter MSF class but decided not to use them. They fit great, kept hand warm, but some loss of dexterity. After receiving my M1 and riding for a couple months....these gloves kept my hand from freezing off during my early morning commutes. They look sharp and fitment is snug.

These gloves now sit on the shelf in the garage. Not even remotely waterproof. I would have returned them if I had known they were $75 sponges. Cool style and features, and Icon normally makes great equipment, disappointed. They are warm but run small. They have a lot of material in there (shocked that all of it and none of which stops water as claimed on the tags) so they run small and have a very 'removed' feeling from the controls. Very low dexterity.

These are my spring and fall gloves.
These gloves fit well, look great and feel good on the controls. They are not bulky enough (warm enough) for winter riding but for spring/fall they are a really good choice for the price. Mine were not really waterproof. The inside was damp during several rainstorms I rode through, but my hands did remain warm so I am not complaining. In light rain and mist they are waterproof enough, it's just in a hard rain that moisture gets through. The pre-curved fit is just right, and I love the knuckle protection, it feels really solid but when wearing the gloves you can't feel any abrasion or roughness. This glove has proven to be a real value because it outperformed several gloves at twice the price. But you should still buy a pair of winter gloves also. Don't try to make these do double duty. If the temps are in the mid 30's or less you will only get about 30-45 minutes of warmth out of them, but that is OK with me because that is how long it takes me to get to work. I have true winter gloves to wear if I'm going to be out in those temps all day.

Finally Let's go into the rain!
Short fingers are slightly large, but is not a problem. Try to made a glove for everyone. Warm, feels very protective. When you have many rainy days, and many of them you get not wet (washed) you appreciate waterproof gear. Mexico has a long rainy season: Excellent purchase! I like a lot Icon products!

They broke in well
These gloves were kind of an after thought on my order, but they looked like such a deal. I've been expecting to wear dirt bike gloves most of the time. I was wrong. We've been mostly riding around freezing, and these gloves are what I've been wearing. They aren't quite as warm as I was hoping, but I haven't been too cold yet. The more they break in, the better I can feel the controls. I ride in the rain and haven't gotten wet yet. I recommend them.
