Klim Element Short Gloves 4.2 5 33 33
Decent glove but lacks attention to detail Very warm waterproof glove. I have no doubt this glove could be worn down below 20 degrees F, especially with heated grips. However, I could not get passed the bunching of the inner liner, even with dry hands. It is almost impossible to get your fingers all the way in the glove. I wish the liner has been firmly attached to the shell of the glove, instead I had to return it. Revzilla, as always, was very accommodating with the return process. November 29, 2015
Warm, dry & good protection These gloves seem well made, keep you warm and dry, and seem to offer good protection. The sizing is a bit off for me, I got the XL as per the size chart and they are a bit tight, and difficult to put back on once the inner lining is a little sweaty. I also find them a bit too bulky for off-road work, great on the slab though. August 31, 2015
Weird Sizing I have two other pairs of gloves from Klim (Inversion and Adventure) that are 2XL and fit GREAT. With these gloves the fingers are way short. The crotch of the fingers are about 1/2 - 3/4 up from where it should be for me. I got the 3XL thinking that would do the trick. Not much better in finger length and now way to big everywhere else. Was looking for just waterproof but these are more than that, insulation too. Bulky bulky bulky. Feel very disconnected from the controls. Still LOVE Klim but I think I will have to find another company for a waterproof glove. July 10, 2015
Waterproof but bulky After spending a few bucks on cheap supposedly waterproof gloves that kept my hands dry for only a few minutes on day-long trips in the rain I took the plunge and invested in these Gore-Tex gloves. These gloves work great - I had two five-hour rides in almost constant rain (including some moments of very heavy downpours) and they absolutely work and kept my hands dry. The temps were in the 80s, so my hands did get warm and just a tiny a bit clammy but not bad at all. The little visor wiper works well, too. My one small gripe is with how bulky the gloves feel (bulkier and less feel than some winter gloves I own) and the stretch panels around the thumb seem to only add bulk and not any practical functionality. The palm portion of the gloves bunches up when I curl my hand around the grip and the protector piece for the pisiform bone seems to only aggravate the bunching up. I was thinking that these could be my main gloves and I would ride in them (given the great protection) even when it's not raining but in reality as soon as I take off my rain gear I take these gloves off, too, and go to my regular ones for the better feel. None of this would dissuade me from buying the gloves again, though, as their main role is to keep my hands dry on long rainy rides and this they do spectacularly well. June 18, 2015
Overall quite excellent Great looking, lots of features, reasonably priced. Can't wait to try them in the rain! The only "issue" I'd say is that the finger/thumb proportions feel a little "off." I've seen other reviews complaining that Klim doesn't know how human hands are shaped. I don't think it's as bad as all that, and it's not an issue when my hands are on the handlebars. April 16, 2015
Amazing gloves. I purchased these graves a couple of months ago. At the same time I bought some Klim Adventure gloves for summer. I ride a '14 R1200RT. I bought these gloves after riding an Iron Butt SS1000 in sheets of rain for hours. I had my BMW Pro Winter gloves on and BMW Pro Tour Boots (which are amazing), and my AeroStitch R3. The only part of me that got wet was the inside of my gloves. The BMW gloves themselves are great, but with the gauntlet style, it's too easy for water to get past the inner cuff and seep in. So I bought these element gloves in the short version. I've worn them in the rain twice, to work (30 minutes), and they were great. Klim products are built so well and really seem to have great feel, craftsmanship, functionality and look. I own a bunch of their products. Please be aware, their sizing runs big for almost all of their products. Ordering the next size up from your normal size, would be advised. April 13, 2015
Good glove 45-65 degree range Solid glove overall. I'm happy with the fit. i bought these gloves for winter riding. I can tell you that below about 45 degrees even with heated grips that my hands will still feel the cold. Not frostbite like but not warm either. I'll try them next winter perhaps with an additional liner. Well made and your hands are well protected. March 10, 2015
These gloves are worth the money! Outstanding! Fit: I ordered the XL size and they fit perfectly. I normally wear an XL glove. These are some seriously impressive gloves! I find them quite warm riding in 30s and 40s. Not sure what they will be like in warm/hot weather but I have other gloves for such temps if needed. These things are feature packed (super protective knuckles, Poron padding at the right places, goggle cleaning squeegee built in, etc.) and are very rugged, very comfortable,very well made, very well engineered, they look awesome, and they give me confidence of good protection that I hopefully will never need. I did a lot of research and read many reviews before I bought these gloves and while some have had problems figuring out what size worked for them, I guess I got lucky and my first try fit perfect. They appear to be true to size. I have no problems putting them on or taking them off either. I just love these gloves!!! March 9, 2015
