Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves
Bulky as expected
You'd expect some bulk to a water/wind proof winter glove. The cuff is nice and big to fit over a jacket sleeve and the adjustable wrist is really nice. It's not as easy as Anthony makes it out to be to adjust. The fingers (especially the thumb) seems to have MUCH more room in them than needed at the ends. Seems like the thumb comes out to a box at the end that just swallows up your thumb and makes using it about useless. I haven't had a chance to ride in any rain (central California drought) but the cold was stopped for sure. The extra bulk translates to a little detached feeling from the controls, but it would only take few rides to get used to it.

Nice warmer gloves
Great gloves. I use these when the temp is around 60 or below. They don't have airflow which makes them a decent glove down to about 45-50 degrees. I put some hand warmers in them and used them in 27 degrees, they were warm but I could feel a little cool air. If it's above 60 though I pack these away because they become way to warm. The litle squeegie is on the index finger is cool but I've never used it. I like the straps to snug the glove even tighter during cold days.

Decepción del producto
Por fin después de un tiempo, me he comprado sus guantes patrol waterproof, los compre por medio derevzilla.com, vivo en Colombia y como saben el clima en el trópico puede variar drásticamente, de una tarde soleada a una lluvia intensa en cuestión de minutos, anoche mientras rodaba en mi moto con un grupo de amigos, a comenzado a llover intensamente, les cuento que sus guantes no cumplieron con la promesa del producto, ya que no cumplieron con la resistencia al agua de la que hablan, se me han mojado las manos y enfriado a tal manera que me toco parar quitarme los guantes y tratar de no perder la movilidad de mis dedos acercando las manos al motos para calentarlas, he quedado sorprendido ya que sufrí una décepcion con respecto al producto. me gustaría que aclararan a los clientes que sus guantes no son resistentes al agua, además de esto pido un reembolso de mi dinero o un cambio por un producto que realmente sirva.
Me entristece ya que soy un admirador de su marca (icon) y tengo productos suyos de los cuales estoy supremamente satisfecho y son mi primera opción en la compra en productos para la protección.

Nice and Toasty
A bit bulky on the fingers, but if you are commuting on the highway on cold days, these are great. If you ride more in the city, I'd steer away from these do to the reduced dexterity in the fingers. There were a few times I couldn't move my fingers fast enough to react to a sticky situation and I had to take more aggressive measures than usual.

Great glove...a bit stiff initially
My only waterproof pair of gloves. They're very comfortable. I did some interstate riding in fairly heavy rain on a chillier day. No water got through the glove. However, it did roll off my jacket down into the glove which was a pain. Overall my hands stayed warm though.
The gloves are stiff to start. My fingers hurt quite a bit after an hour or so riding with them brand new (especially the throttle hand). I imagine they'll loosen up with continued use.
Definitely recommend this glove. Great for the price.

Snow Gloves with attitude
I started riding in the middle of the winter and these were my first riding gloves, definitely made learning clutch control and braking tricky, but was totally worth it. I rode all winter with these gloves and eventually bought some liners as my longer rides in sub 30deg temps needed a bit more covering to stay safe and comfortable. Even without the liners they felt safe, I could still feel my fingers, they were just super cold.
So two thumbs up for some gloves that I would image would offer some decent protection in case you went down and at the end of the day they really just feel like snow gloves I wore as a kid.

Good glove with slightly weird sizing
This glove has done everything it promised. It keeps my hands warm and is waterproof. I have noticed however that while most of the fingers fit well, the thumb is tight and strains my hand when riding for extended periods of time. Okay for a 15 minute ride to work, but not nice for a day long ride.

So Far So Good
4000 miles later and still dry and warm. No complaints so far.
