Rukka Argosaurus Gloves
Still left me cold!
I got these as cold-weather gloves for a trip up to Oregon during the winter. My normal pair of gloves are a mid-weight, well perforated affair, so I wanted something to keep me warm, not be too stiff or burdensome, and to keep the cold air out. These gloves are pretty flexible, and when trying them on they sure feel like they would off a lot of winter protection, but once on the road, they only offered another 10 degrees of additional comfort (that is, normal gloves were comfortable at 60*, these are comfortable down to 50*).
I ride with barkbusters. Even then, these gloves let far too much frigid air in. Riding at 40*, at dark, with heavy fog, and heated grips... and my hands nearly fell off. I had to use glove liners under a pair of latex gloves in order to stave off the cold.
In their favor, for a water proof gloves, these feel great and are still very comfortable even when wearing additional layers on my hands.

Used these gloves for cool weather adventure touring style riding (Tiger 800) approximately 1000 km.
Well made product. Good protection. X-Trafit design working great so far, a big plus. Comfortable with exterior sewn seams. Waterproof / windproof.
A little tight around the wrist makes them tricky to get on/off when damp/wet. Have to pull the Velcro strap through further to get on/off. Measured my hand as described in the size chart and they are a good fit. Any larger and the fingers would be too long. I usually take an XL but got the 2XL size as per chart.
Would definitely recommend.

I bought the Rukka Argosaurus Gloves looking for a good water proof glove with good protection, after a week of commuter riding to break them in I decided to take them on my long weekend 650 mile ride, no sooner did I get 45 min up the road, the heavens opened up like I’ve need ridden in before, the works thunder lighting and worst of all those massive mist making machines called tractor trailer trucks everywhere.
Gloves total dry and comfy, well until.. Little did I know my Rev’it Defender GTX jacket was pooling water between the Gore-tex liner and the shell, seems the arm zippers face straight up and don’t have a water proof zipper, once I moved in the wrong way, sleeve emptied directly into my gloves.
The point in telling you this.. the inside of the gloves dry fast, I think thats an important buying point too.

Nice gloves, but sized way too small
I normally, I wear size Large, but sometimes I'll need X-Large. I read that these were sized on the small side, so I ordered the XL size which turned out to still be too small. I can't believe that I needed a XXL glove. I have never in my life worn a XXL in anything... ever. These gloves are sized way too small, yet I had to pay the shipping and jump through hoops to get them exchanged. I don't feel that I should have had to pay for the return shipping for gloves that are obviously not manufactured to their respective sizes. Otherwise they are good gloves that offer protection, style and resistance to rain.

Very nice gloves. These gloves make me want to try more Rukka gear! The construction is top notch! The white, black, and neon green version of this glove is beautiful! You feel like you could punch through brick with these gloves on - and you can still do things like fasten your helmet strap! The first time you put the gloves on they are very tight. This does not necessarily mean you purchased the wrong size. If you can get them on and not feel like the circulation is reduced in your hands, wear the gloves for a few hours on the road. The leather will start to give a bit and before you know it they slide right on with no problem.

High-vis version has great style, protection, and goretex
They seemed a bit high in price, but I did get what I paid for, which was a good looking (I got the high-vis version by the way) goretex glove with good protection. Only wore them to my motorcycle safety class here toward the end of April in Georgia when its just starting to get a little hot, and the gloves did start to feel a hot at times, but thats probably mostly because it was as much standing/sitting on the bike waiting as it was actual riding--don't think it will be a problem when actually riding.

AWESOME PRODUCT FROM AN AWESOME COMPANY
I have the Armas jacket and was immediately drawn to this company. I needed a 3 season glove that has great protection and style, and the Argosaurus is the best glove I have owned for the 3 seasons it covers.
Great product at a not so bad price!!
