great cool weather glove Needed a glove for the colder weather and so far it's been great. Not too bulky and does a great job of keep my hands warm. January 27, 2015
Definitely works Had these gloves for 2 months now. This glove is very comfortable. First time i put it on it felt like i was touching a very soft puppy. I ride it only in the cold weather right now which is anything less then 65 degrees for me. The coldest I rode with this glove is 45. I'm from the Central Florida area so that's the coldest we will ever get lol. After a 20 mins of riding going 55mph in 45 degree weather the gloves winter protection will start to fade and you will feel the cold in your fingers but it wont be super brutal. It has kept my hands dry in the rain when riding. The negative! The stitching isn't very solid on the gloves. I already have some of the stitching coming off around the pinky finger and the wind blocker lining is being seen and an other area the stiching is coiming off where the double sticking is located. January 27, 2015
nice gloves for the money. This is a solid pair of gloves for cold weather riding they are not completely water proof though, in heavy rain they soak though in less than an hour. January 26, 2015
Not necessarily all weather I'd label these gloves three and a half seasons. First some advice on use: If you're going to be riding on the highway in the low 40s, these gloves won't keep your hands warm for longer than 20 minutes. The wind just penetrates too much to expect toasty hands at those temperatures. However, if you have hand guards, these will work well into the 30s. That said, they're fantastic in the 45-60 degree range, and they're waterproof. These gloves are flawlessly comfortable, and they're thin enough so that you still get a good feel on the throttle. Absolutely worth having a pair up here in the northeast - these let you leave a few hours earlier on those brisk fall mornings, and you can get your bike out a few weeks earlier in the spring. January 26, 2015
Good colder weather glove I bought this glove to wear during colder days and nights in the SF bay area. So far so good after a few weeks. Nice protection and made well. I would buy these gloves again. January 19, 2015
Decent winter gloves I probably expected too much from these gloves to keep me warm in sub 40 degree weather. Finger tips still froze despite also wearing liners. Ended up getting barkbusters to cut down on the wind. However, I still enjoy the gloves. A little stiff, but plenty of protection. January 12, 2015
Works great for a good price I have used these gloves in temperatures from 40 to 17 degrees and they have worked well I would recommend them to everybody no matter you're riding style they offer good protection and they keep you're hands warm Rides: 2012 Kawasaki ZX6R January 12, 2015
good but not great... I bought these for the cold months as I ride all year round, in Albuquerque it never really snows but it gets well into the 20s most days in winter months. I have used these gloves in 20-50 degree weather and am not super impressed for how much they were. 40-50 your good, 30 you feel the chill, below 20 your fingers start to go numb hands are cold. Under 40 you have about 15 min or so of warm or normal temperature but after that your hands get cold and fingers are gone. I ride anywhere from 15-60 minutes to school daily depending on traffic. On the highway the wind cuts through the gloves in 30 degree weather in about 5 minuets. The only reason I don't wear my snowboard gloves instead are because they are too bulky and have no protection. I am 50/50 on these gloves so I don't really recommend them but I also don't not recommend them. Either you get these and deal with the cold that inevitably sets in or you deal with the bulky but always warm snow gloves you can get for a quarter of the price of these gloves. January 5, 2015

Jonathan V: because it's cold in the winter here!! Nov 16, 2014
Bobby F: ...after reading all the reviews I've come to the conclusion this is the glove I am looking for to get me through this winter. I do not ride much in the cold but when I do its typically in the 40-50 degree range and I'm confident this glove will keep my blood flowing. Not to mention ordering from Revzilla gets me free shipping and 1st return so no real risk involved. Nov 14, 2014

David B: Nice gloves but bought them to tight. Made my hands go to sleep. Ruined them when I ripped off the wrist straps. I think the next size (large) would be to big in the hand and fingers.

MR52: I would say it depends on your speed but I was just out in high 30's for about a half hour tooling around the neighborhood (20-40mph) and my fingers were a bit cool when I got home but not bad. Feb 26, 2012

Kevin W: 40-60 is a comfortable range. I've used them in the low 30s and my fingers were getting numb after half an hour. I also had them on in the mid 70's and my hands were getting clammy. The liner stuck to my sweaty hands making it hard to take the gloves off. Mar 19, 2012

Philip G: I wear them comfortably in the high 30s. In the 20s I can go about 15 minutes before my hands get numb. I last about five minutes in the teens. Haven't tested below teens but I imagine they wouldn't do much. This is mostly city riding, up to about 40mph. Jan 10, 2015

atlshawn: I've ridden comfortably in the upper 40's and with an Anti-Freeze liner into the lower 40's. If you're not on the highway you can probably ride into the lower 40's or upper 30's without a liner. Anything lower or a lot of highway riding and you might want to pickup a good electric liner. I prefer Gerberg since they don't bind up around the fingers, and last awhile. Nov 28, 2011

OHStan: I would say they are good for temperatures from 70F down to around 35F, colder than that I would suspect these will not keep you warm enough. Warmer than 70F I think your hands will start to sweat. Apr 2, 2012

Buzz W: The Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves keep my hands warm cruising on an open Harley down to about 45-50 degrees. In the low 40s my fingers are cold but tolerable for rides of less than an hour. I would not wear these in the 30s or colder--then you're in heated gear territory. Mar 24, 2014

Darrel H: I don't know about the Polar Gore-Tex but the Apex Drystar are not very warm.
I wouldn't spend the money cause mine sit collecting dust. I wore them for 10 minutes and Revzilla wouldn't take them back.

Carl W: In 20 years of commuting year round in all weather conditions in London and New York, I have never treated a pair of gloves or any motorcycle clothing.

Assuming you have more time and / or patience than I do, I am sure it might be a good idea and could extend the life of the gloves.

Stephen T asked: Can you wash these gloves?How? Mar 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul P: These gloves are leather and textile so for the leather a damp cloth is the best way to clean them. For a stain, use a non-fragrance, standard soap. I like to use something like a mild dish detergent or Ivory hand soap. There are also leather cleaners available, which is the best option.

The textile can be immersed in a mild soap bath and hand wash. Woolite is good for this. It's gentle and effective and won't harm the leather either. Don't submerged for long periods, like soaking. Especially not good for the leather.

How every you wash them, they should air dry, which takes some time. You can help it along by pat drying them with a towel. Don't squeeze or wring out excess water.

Griff: My Question?: Why would you want to wash these gloves? But just for fun, put them on and ran a ton of water out of the faucet over them in the sink. And wouldn't you know it? My hands remained dry! When the gloves were dry there were no noticeable problems with the gloves. Not sure what would happen if you toss them into the washer with your blue jeans. Good Luck!

Dennis D asked: I have two questions:

1 - I'm looking to purchase these (Apex Drystar) for cooler months and the SP-2 for warmer months. Will sizing be the same for both these A* gloves even though the Drystar has a liner inside?

2 - I'm confused with the size chart. It states "put palm on tape measure and measure from the knuckle of your forefinger to the knuckle of your pinkie finger". Are we talking about the knuckle bone of these two fingers? Or am I measuring the entire width of my palm at its widest point (which are where my 4 knuckles are located)?

If we are supposed to measure from knuckle to knuckle, would it be easier if I made a fist and put the tape measure ON TOP of my knuckles and measure the distance from index knuckle to pinky knuckle?

Tim S: They fit typical european, a bit on the small side. Not sure on the measurements, just order your normal size unless you have fat fingers like me. I would not recommend a tight fit for a winter glove.

Nov 2, 2014
Reply to Tim Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Carl W: Perhaps I like my gloves a bit bigger because I am a commuter, however I generally buy the biggest ones I can find and don't measure.

I would think the text above would get you in the right neighborhood no matter how you measure it, however, would also think neither will necessarily guarantee a perfect fit - you just have to give them a try and hope for the best.

Revzilla of course has good service and you could return or exchange if not right for you.

A shopper asked: The specs say it's made from goatskin, but on the video he says cow hide. Is one usually better than the other when looking for durability, fit, and abrasion protection? Sep 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jack C: In general goatskin is more abrasion resistant than cowhide. As in many things it really depends on the quality of the hides. Goatskin is also lighter than cowhide and is more supple, thus it requires little break-in time. According to Alpinestars the “chassis” of the Apex Drystar Gloves is goatskin. The palm reinforcement and the gauntlet appear to be cowhide, but I can’t say that for certain. Sep 24, 2013
Reply to Jack Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Greg H: Goatskin is considered the best leather for gloves (kangaroo aside) also known as "kid" leather. It's thin, supple, and long wearing. Cow hide is good, as well, but it's usually stiffer. If cow hide is thinned down enough to make it as supple as goat skin, it wears out quicker. In a motorcycle glove, how supple do you want it? Sep 23, 2013
