Firstgear Rubber Overglove
I purchased these overgloves as a "what the heck, I'll try it for that price" addition to one of my orders.
I wear a Large in American Cut Gloves. I ordered an XL and they fit perfectly over multiple pairs of my Armored Large Summer gloves (both shorties and gauntlets). If you wear thin unarmored gloves then you may want to buy the same size.
These are definitely waterproof, and can get warm but I don't plan to travel day to day in the rain, I TRY to ride in fair weather only. These come with a small cinch sack and are easy to pack away right next to my rain gear. these are also more than just dish drain gloves, they are thicker, sized correctly, and have grip bumps on the palms.
For what they are and the price (on Sale) I am happy with this purchase.

will do the job excellently
Heavier than dishwashing gloves and they are black. Comes with their own draw string pouch which is a good feature because you can tuck them away in small places. Definitely gonna keep the rain out. The price is great. Order your regular size if you are going to just wear them. Order 1 size larger if you are going to put them over regular motorcycle gloves. Order 2 sizes larger if you are going to put them over winter gloves. I have Large cold weather Gerbing G3 heated gloves and ordered 2XL overgloves and they pull over beautifully. Any smaller they would not fit. Order a pair for the wife. She wears small Gerbing cold weather G3 heated gloves and I got her a set of large overgloves and they fit perfect. You won't be disappointed.

They keep you completely dry, but are a bit slippery.
These overgloves go on and off easily, and keep your hands completely dry. The downside is that they are slippery, so you need to keep a tight grip on the throttle, which is tiring. I am going to try holding one of those round, flat, grippy, waffle-like jar opener discs or a square of the same material that is used as a shelf liner, between the glove and the throttle. I think that will do the job.

Product is exactly as advertised.
These are really water proof. But if they are to be used as an over-glove, order 2 sizes bigger than you would think. or one size bigger ans a thin glove on your hand.

The gloves fit well over my regular riding gloves, but not over heavy/winter gloves. The gloves come with a stuff sack, so they compress/fold into a tiny space. Made of rubber, so no airflow, but no moisture inside either. No more wet and cold hands for me!

These gloves run small. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I read the reviews and then contacted a customer service Rep. who said they were sized to fit over your gloves, they are not. I were a X large and I ordered an X large and it fits my hand just about right with out a riding glove under it. My advice, order one size larger than you normally wear! Now I have to reorder again and I am tired of doing that!

Would be good... If the sizing were better.
These overgloves work as advertised. They keep the water out 100%.
The problem is with sizing. I wear size L gloves, so I ordered an XL overglove, and they barely fit. I can only wear them for about 20 minutes at a time before my hands are in pain because it fits so tightly. I have an armored pair of gloves. They're not overly bulky or anything. They're about standard for a pair of motorcycle gloves. You'd think that Firstgear would take this into account and make them extra wide around the knuckles, and just generally build them wider for motorcycle gloves.
I expect that an overglove should fit large enough so that I can order the same size as the glove I wear. But, I ordered a size larger than I wear and they are still too tight. That is simply unacceptable.
I would recommend this product... But with reservations. It does work, but they need to work on their sizing.

Marge would be proud "No dishpan hands!"
Bottom line, function over form. No bells and whistles, but dry hands. Yes, they are rubber gloves, and those of your from the military may kick yourself for not having thought and marketing the idea of your MOPP (chemical protective) gloves as moto gloves! These are not going to win any beauty awards, but they WILL fit over your expensive riding gloves and keep them and your hands dry. High enough to gauntlet your rain suit sleeves, and even a bit of textured area on the fingertips and palm (More like dishwashing gloves than your old MOPP suit paws). Best of all they come in the full color spectrum...at once that is, ie BLACK! (somebody get me a 6th grader, that's correct right? Black is the entire color spectrum absorbed?). Easily packed for unexpected downpours, and absolutely waterproof enough for the all day drizzle-fest. Protection comes from your gloves underneith, so don't buy these expecting kevlar knuckles etc. I recommend these
