Yes and No
Hmmm? Let's see; I like to be positive, so... in my opinion, this is a glove made of high quality materials and well constructed. Looks and feels like it will have good durability. I've only ridden a few hundred miles in these gloves, so I will need more miles/time to give a final verdict.

I must also be truthful: I feel that this glove is substantially overpriced. No bang for your buck here. Although the glove offers excellent dorsal metacarpal protection, it offers no extra lateral palm (hypothenar muscle) protection; ulna protection is also minimum for a glove of this category. I have average/good cold tolerance, but I did not feel that these gloves performed very well for temperatures below 40 to 45 Fahrenheit for a recent 2 hour, 70 mph ride.

I have purchased gloves for $100 less, and felt that I got more.

Do I really recommend this product? Yes and no.

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.

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.

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.

I would buy them again.
Compared to the other heavy weight gloves I had, there is no comparison. The quality of the build, features and fit are just so far beyond. But, of course, I would expect that for the $$ these things cost and from KLIM. Comfortable for about an hour down to 30 degrees or so, no problem at all below that or longer with heated grips. Thumbs eventually get cold but I expected that. They broke in quickly and comfortably. For such a heavy/warm glove they are amazingly comfortable and do not hinder movement while retaining good tactile feel.

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.

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.

Good to about 40 degrees, great protection, Pricey but worth it.
These gloves offer a lot of protection and are stylish. They are a little bulky, but thinner in the palm. I have ridden in 40 degree weather, and they keep my hands pretty warm without heated grips, though the little finger on my throttle hand gets a bit cold. The palms let in the heat well when I use heated grips. Pricey, but worth it!

Excellent gloves!
These gloves are spectacular! They are pricey, to be sure, but the warmth and water protection they offer is superb. They are also surprisingly thin and articulate for how warm they are, so it's still easy to work all the controls, which was a bit of an issue with my previous gloves. The armor feels significant, and the visor squeegee on the left index finger is a nice touch. Overall, for the level of materials and workmanship you're getting, I think these gloves are worth every penny.

5* and well deserved
These were my first Klim purchase and I am impressed.
I needed a cold weather glove that offered lots of protection without being too bulky. The only glove that seemed to meet all those requirements was the Caldera.

They felt great straight out of the box, though bulkier than I had hoped for. It was only when I had ridden with them a couple of times that I realized that they offer great feel along the fingers and they aren't bulky at all.

It took a couple of rides to get used to the change from my summer glove, the reach to the clutch had to be a little more pronounced but as they broke in over the next few rides this has become less.

I am astonished at just how well they fit and how comfortable they are. I used the Klim measurement chart to get the correct size and it was spot on.

The quality of the materials and the finishing of those materials is superb. Of course, only time will tell as to how they hold up.

Airflow is zero which is what you would expect from a winter glove. I made the mistake of wearing them in 53f weather yesterday and my hands got very hot. The goretex did it's job and my hands stayed dry buy boy did I make the wrong decision. I would recommend them for 45f and below.

So far the coldest has been 34f and on an hour run my right thumb got cold and the fingertips of my right hand. I think the fact my grip on the left bar is lighter meant I wasn't compressing the filling as much and thereby allowing more airspace for the heat to reside. Still, no other glove I have ever owned has performed so well at such low temps.

To sum up: if you have the cash and want the protection they offer GET THESE GLOVES.

If you are at a stretch to pay this amount then get Hippo Hands and use your summer gloves.

Thanks to Hi-Viz Brian and his discussion on ADVRider I ultimately decided on this pair of Gore-Tex gloves. Very warm, dry and comfortable. Not too much riding in them yet but so far I am very happy with the purchase.

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.

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.

best gloves I've ever owned
Glen C on Dec 18, 2013
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.

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.

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
Daniel B on Jan 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
