All Season, Waterproof Motorcycle Gloves For Touring & Commuting


A ship in its harbor is safe - but that’s not what ships are built for. The same can be said of our two-wheeled wayfarers. Motorcycles were made to be ridden, not to be polished. Here’s to those motorcycles that have seen neither hose nor sponge for some time, but have seen the world and all the mile markers along the way. Here’s to the bikes that have forgone being tucked in every night, sound in the safe harbors of their garages in favor of sleeping under the stars or the glow of neon lights. They may no longer be showroom worthy, but their scars are the marks of a life lived.

Here’s to tourers and commuters, bikes and riders alike. True motorcyclists, real riders who concern themselves with the operative word rather than fake biker tough guy poses, instagram filters or other fashionplate fanfare. Riders who RIDE, dammit. The long-haul tourers and commuters of the world, the everyday riders and those who ride for days without end. They are those who know all too well the difference between gear that works and junk. We too know, as we have quite a few cut from that cloth on the RevZilla roster. And we do not undertake lightly the gear selection for the best waterproof and all-weather touring and commuter motorcycle gloves of the 2017 riding season.
