Klim Caldera Gloves 4.2 5 14 14
Bits and pieces over extended term I bought these gloves at the start of fall season last year (2013) and waiting around until now, the end of spring to write the review. I ride all year around and I will have to agree that these are over-hyped. Initially, the break-in period can last a few weeks of every day riding. My size fit perfectly and few months in I was even able to wear an additional glove base layer underneath, although a bit tight. They seem like they are well built, quality stitching, panelling, leather, etc. Around late February, the wrist cinch strap velcro has started to come off and unfortunately it's not almost completely off. They seemed to have only used one line of stitching to hold the velcro down and unfortunately the constant pulling on/off has done its duty to break the velcro fibers off. I have fear these would only last one season of every day riding for anyone. In addition to above, if you have been riding in a downpour for a few hundred miles, these will eventually get soggy and when they do, it will take at least a day to dry them off making them a bit stiff. Moreover, I would not ride in these for long, especially in temps below 45. Hands will get sweaty and then cold. Meh. May 12, 2014
Great tech, mediocre performance I bought this glove for cold weather riding. For me in Vermont that means mid 20's to upper 40's. My bike is equipped with heated grips and hand guards. Winter was slow in leaving but I have now put about 1500 miles on these gloves in temps from the mid 30's to the 50's and in some light rain. The gloves fit well. They are a little thick as expected for a cold weather glove. I wore them driving my car to start breaking them in. Finger movements are sluggish and the thumb is stiff, even with the accordion pleats. I am thinking this will improve with age/use. Are they Warm?? Below 40, my fingers we chilling in minutes. Once my heated grips caught up, things were more comfortable, without them, I don't think my fingers would have been happy. I am looking forward to seeing how they perform in a heavy, cold down pour. While not nearly as warm as I had expected, my hands do feel safe. Also for a winter glove the gauntlets are too narrow. They just barely fit over my Klim Latitude Jacket with a Rapid Fire liner and long sleeve poly pro shirt underneath. the technology is nice, but they don't really perform. Not worth the price.

Very nice gloves! I really like my gloves. Haven't used them in the rain yet so do don't how waterproof they will be. They fit very small. I used Klim's size chart which put me in the medium size. But when they arrived I couldn't get my hands in either glove. Thankfully Revzilla exchanged them for size Large at no cost except postage. I think these gloves are going to work very well for the colder temps we ride in Alaska. April 23, 2014
Great gloves These gloves are great. A little stiff at first, but the level of protection from the elements is second to none. March 10, 2014
Quality has a price In the past price was my top priority but I ended up spending more in the long run because the product fell apart or failed. Now I pay the cost to get a items from any company that has a history of quality, durability and customer satisfaction. I'm not wealthy. I only have Soc. Sec. as income. I'm 75yrs old, ride a 38yr old thumper year round. I have Klim's Latitude Jacket and Pants. Is their stuff expensive? Yes. But I'm very satisfied. This coming Spring I'll buy their best Summer glove. To me the name Klim says it all. So does the name RevZilla. January 27, 2014
Why didn't I invest in these before. These are brilliant, excellent quality, fantastic fit and no water gets through. The day following these arriving it completely chucked it down and I felt as snug as a bug in a rug. Just buy them, you will not regret the investment. May 9, 2013
Good and Bad Being faithful to the Klim brand I purchased a pair of these pretty much knowing they'd fit as do my Klim Inversion, Dakar, and Powercross models. I was wrong. Ordered in the same size, these were a completely different animal altogether. They fit very tightly in the hand. In fact, I was barely able to insert my hand past the wrist cinch. Once in, I unfortunately found the fingers were considerably longer than my other models as well. In short... The fit was way off in my case, which I found strange in this price range. As for construction, they seemed to be straight A's there. Seams, materials, and quality each appeared to be up to Klim's typical quality. In my case these didn't work out. YMMV. January 14, 2013
Average This is a classic example of a product being overhyped. They look the part and while these are no means bad gloves they are VERY average. Comfortably, these are good to around 43 degrees while my Cortech Scarabs gave me 46. I rode 45 min in 31 degrees a few days ago and I my fingertips were stinging with cold. Dissapointed being I was expecting more. Aerogel? Yeah, I got suckered. My Under Armour coldgear liners with my Scarabs give me more warmth AND flexibility. Willing to part with these XXL very soon. On a positive note. . . . Love Love Love Revzilla, my motorcycle internet home. Probably the best customer service ever. Great help with my sizing issue. December 31, 2012

Richard W: Rave review for warmth and feel plus quality construction. Mar 13, 2014
Stephen M: great fall and winter glove Feb 21, 2014
Matthew B: Was seeking a non-heated, cold-weather touring glove. I also own other Klim products and feel confident in the brand. Accordingly, the Klim Caldera did not disappoint. Great gloves that will likely improve with age as they break-in to fit my size and style. Feb 11, 2014
Denis M: I have the KLIM Badlands Gear, Aggressor pants and shirt, Balaclava and Krew Pack. I'm pleased with KLIM quality. IMHO, if you "Buy Cheap, Replace Often," This usually costs more in the long run. Jan 7, 2014
Glen C: best gloves I've ever owned Dec 18, 2013
Johnnie B: I was hoping these would be outstanding gloves. In my opinion they're NOT. As far as temperature isolation, they're very AVERAGE gloves and offer no better protection at temps under 40 F than other less expensive gloves. No extra lateral palm (hypothenar muscle) protection; ulna protection is also minimum for a glove of this category. In practicality, very average gloves at a very over-average price. Nov 3, 2013
Morris B: It's cold in NJ in the winter but only snow and ice will keep me off the bike. The amount of time I can spend on the bike is proportional to how cold my hands get. These gloves do a very good job. Oct 1, 2013
Daniel B asked: Does the Aerogel allow heat to flow from heated grips to your hand? I live in Vermont and sometimes ride for several hours with temps in the 20's to 30's. Getting sick of cold hands. Will these gloves cut it or should I be looking at electric options?

Thanks,

Dan

Adam S: Hey Dan, i've used these in ~0 temps with a r1200gsa. On the highest setting the grips feel warm but don't do much in terms of warming the hand. When I've ridden in the 30's I've felt about the same so it may be the insulation in the glove. You may need to have heated gloves if you really want that feature.

That said I like the gloves, their construction is top notch and they are warm. I think at the 20's and 30's you will be comfortable most of the time.

There is also a klim glove that is one model below these (forgetting the name) that a buddy had and I liked those just as much. So you may also want to consider those as well.

neil s: I can feel the heated grips through these gloves but my hands still get cold when the temperature is in the thirties. I think it's due to poor circulation in my hands, the gloves are very well made and warm. I will probably be shopping for heated gloves for next winter. Jan 29, 2014

Miguel P: I have a 1200GSA an the heat from the heated grips does penetrate the gloves. I have no problem with cold hands with these gloves and the heated grips. I do have the extensions on my hand guards so I do not get a lot of wind over the gloves while riding. Jan 30, 2014

Zachary K: No experience with heated grips, but I wear these gloves over Powerlet heated liners, and my hands are really warm (the Aerogel seems to keep plenty of the liners' heat in). If you go this route, make sure you size up with the glove. Jan 30, 2014

Richard S: They do let the heat from heated grips transfer, but with those temps get heated gloves. These aren't much warmer than other high end glove options (like the RevIt Bastion), just different. Jan 29, 2014
