pricey, a bit bulky but good
For me they work great above 45º F, but cold perception is very subjective. Comfy and very soft from first use, need to get used to the bulk of the glove.<br>I have big wide hands and long fingers, the pinky could have been a bit longer to make them even more comfortable, Ordered a 3xl and the glove fits the palm fine, the wrist adjuster could have been a bit tighter.<br>I bought them because I don't like gauntlets and these look more versatile to me.<br>They are very protective and look sturdy and durable.

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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.

These gloves are worth the money! Outstanding!
Fit: I ordered the XL size and they fit perfectly. I normally wear an XL glove.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>I have no problems putting them on or taking them off either.<br><br>I just love these gloves!!!

Great Gloves
Bought them as a gift for my husband. He is 6'4" and has large hands, but the XL fit perfectly — maybe a little tight, but he thinks they will stretch out and become perfect. He is very excited about trying them out once the snow melts in the midwest!

Overall quite excellent
Great looking, lots of features, reasonably priced. Can't wait to try them in the rain!<br><br>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.

Klim Element
Since I was very happy with the Klim jacket and pants I have, I thought I'd give their gloves a try. I originally ordered a 2XL, but had to send them back for a 3XL. The 2XL fit snug, but a little too for what I like. I do normally go between an 2XL and 3XL so these gloves aren't that far off on fit. The glove is really comfortable, haven't used it at all in wet weather, but they work very well in the 40-50 deg F, range. Overall I'm satisfied with the gloves.

Fits like a glove!
These gloves looks amazing, fit true to size, offer a lot of protection, waterproof, and slide perfectly under the cuff of my jacket (misano) to not allow any air to get in. I'm very happy with my purchase and it's a lot of glove for the price! I was a little worried about them being too bulky, which I had read a few reviews about, but they're really not at all. I think they fit and function perfectly for a light winter glove (+40F range).

A great all around glove
Over 6 months ago I ordered both Element gloves, this one and the long gauntlet. I had intended to use the short one with my Badlands Pro Jacket and the long gauntlet when using my other jackets. I typically prefer a long gauntlet but the Badlands jacket design lends itself to a shorter gauntlet.<br><br>At first, I did not know if I was going to like this glove or not. It did not immediately feel comfortable on the bike and I found myself fidgeting quite a bit. For the first two months or so I was almost ready to give up on the glove, but then it started to break in a little more with each use.<br><br>As the seasons have changed (going into winter) and temperatures have dropped my typical attire for riding is the Badlands Pro, heated Gerbings, and these gloves. The heated grips on my Super Tenere put out a lot of heat and while using these gloves I am quite comfortable down to 30 degrees F.<br><br>For summer use these gloves will get warm. I don't like getting hot and I would not use these much above 80 degrees unless I was touring. Even then I typically carry at least two pairs of gloves.<br><br>These gloves have broken in nicely and now are very comfortable. If you are looking for a nice match to the Badlands jacket this is a good choice. If you want more versatility or prefer a longer gauntlet the long gauntlet version of this glove is a better choice. I like the material on the palm of the long gauntlet better and that is the one I would choose if I had to pick only one.

Not cheap, but probably the best glove in its class
This Klim glove, like basically all their stuff, is well-made, thoughtfully designed, and feature-rich, albeit at a premium price point in comparison to the competitors - but not really too far off if you look at most other 3 to 4 season goretex gloves.<br><br>I think if you can fork out the dough, this glove is probably the most durable, waterproof, comfy glove you can get. It's probably a 3-season glove for most of us (spring/summer/fall or fall/winter/spring depending where you live...) and maybe a 4 season glove for some people. For me it's way too hot for a summer glove (living in PNW), and it does have some insulation so it's significantly bulkier than a one-layer leather type glove. I've been using this glove primarily to ride road/adv type stuff on a Beemer.<br><br>Gore-tex, special fancy leather, reinforced wear areas, durable knuckle protection, and quality construction adds up quick. Definitely recommend, but you might want to try it on to get a sense of how far you can stretch its use to make it worth it if that's important to you.

Was looking for a pair of waterproof gloves and these work great. Little too warm in the summer months, but spring and fall riding they keep your hands real warm and they work great in the rain. Excellent glove. I bought the 2X, which is usually the size I wear and it's a perfect fit.

Looking for a 3 season glove that will protect me from the wet. This glove appears to be built for quality, protection features as well.

I figure I can spend a bit more in hopes that my hands will come out from a crash without injury is less expensive compared to hospital bills.

Alejandro L on Aug 22, 2014
Initially thought this would be a nice and protective glove, based on the build components. Upon receipt, you could see that the gloves are well made, but the waterproof aspect seemed suspect. It woks better with liners, but gets really tight fitting, so not as comfy. The thumb design is just a bit strange looking. The thumb part fits as oddly as it looks. Don't look at it. Look at the titanium knuckles instead.

Trying to decide between this and the long cuff version. I'm looking for a spring/fall glove for Colorado riding and the element glove seems to fit the bill. I'll be wearing a Klim latitude misano jacket and I am a little worried about airflow up the cuff, but even this short cuff seems to ride well over the wrist, so it seems like this would be warm enough and tuck well into the jacket cuff. $$ is tight so I'm trying to save where I can, hence the short vs long cuff. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!
A shopper on Feb 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I live in Saint Albert, Alberta Canada ... I own the Klim Element glove (& wear it with my Badlands Pro Jacket & Pants) ... and have used it extensively on road trips last (2013) summer - (Yamaha Super Tenere) through many states and many weather conditions - Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Queen Charlotte Islands, Yukon, & Alaska. As far as the glove is concerned it performed admirably and fit very comfortably. I did not regret choosing the short version of the Klim Element glove. Recognizing it is a pretty "beefy" glove I liked the way the shorter version was easier to get on & off ... and no issues with airflow under or around the cuff. I love the fact that it is water proof and "breathes" all the while knowing that it will provide solid protection if needed. To be clear though In extreme hot riding weather I do switch to an alternate glove .... my Klim Inversion Pro's ... the glove I use as a backup.
Hope that helps. :)
Hey so I was wondering if anyone has taken a spill with these gloves and if so how did they hold up?
A shopper on Jan 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: went down on a dirt road, broken shoulder in five place and muscle + tendon damage, the gloves have hardly a mark on them. Good gloves
