Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves

The Alpinestars Apex Drystar Gloves have been a fan favorite for cold weather riding, and this latest iteration is yet another home run. Building upon the success of the original Apex glove, this version improves heat retention by adding 100g of Thinsulate thermal insulation behind that trusty ol' Drystar waterproof membrane. Protection is also improved with a 3rd and 4th finger bridge, synthetic and goatskin leather in the impact zones and strategically placed foam padding. 

Features:

  • Stretch polyamide material upper construction with goatskin leather palm
  • Alpinestars Drystar waterproof and breathable membrane
  • 100G/sqm Thinsulate thermal insulation on the backhand
  • Thumb and palm reinforcement for a superior grip
  • Synthetic leather reinforcements with foam padding on the palm and outer hand landing zones provide abrasion resistance in key impact zones
  • Patented 3rd and 4th finger bridge prevent finger roll and separation during impact
  • Synthetic leather molded hard knuckle protectors provides impact and abrasion protection
  • Touch screen compatible fingertip on index for use of touch screen devices
  • Pre-curved finger construction reduces rider fatigue
  • Wide VELCRO® brand cuff closure for easy glove entry and secure closure
  • Wrist fastener for a secure fit
  • Reflective details improve rider visibility in varying light conditions

Good winter gloves but....
I ride in midwest and the lowest I tested this glove is at 19*F at 30 mph avg ride speed. My finger were completely cold after 15 minutes of ride. So, I know the limits of this glove. Later today, I rode at 23*F for 1 hour in city under 40 mph avg speed and at the end my finger went completely numb.
They are above average winter gloves that will protect you from moderately cold winters. I believe, they should be good for anything above 35*F at highway speeds. FYI, I never used any additional protection for my hands in the above test against wind or cold other this a* gauntlet gloves. No heated grip, no liners and no muffs.

I don't know why a* has no windproof winter gloves in their lineup. I use a* from top to bottom.

Caution: These are not windproof. So if you are looking for solid winter gloves then look for some windproof gauntlet gloves even if it is twice as expensive as this.

Other major issue is the liner material. The liner material doesn't stay in its place and I have to struggle to have my fingers into the inserts. I think it is flawed design. Read what others have to say about this liner issue before you buy.

I have attached the glove material breakdown for your reference.

Good cold to cooler weather glove at a fair price
These gloves keeps my hands comfortable on my 30 mile commute at 70 mph+ in temps down to 45 degrees. They are tolerable in temps down to 40 degrees.

older version had to be better, right?
I have no insulated glove to compare this to. I can however tell you how it rated compared to my expectations. (I had been riding down to 40 degrees in the ICON's "summer" twenty-niner gloves)

I have size medium gloves, I also have fat and sort of long fingers and huge knuckles, but super duper skinny wrists (thanks ma). This is important because I find that, even with the wrist strap loose, the elastic around the wrist makes it very difficult to get the glove on, yet the glove fits perfect when they are on.

pros:
at this price I know its hard to beat the features
I can ride down to 25 degrees at times
it fits true to size
it does what I want

cons:
I wish the gauntlet section had more insulation
the interior liner wants to pull out as I take my hand out

Bottom line if you can still find the old version of this glove in your size, I'd bet it would be better. That's what I would have wanted. Still, this glove is probably the best in the market at this price.

Excellent cold weather gloves for the price!
I've used these gloves a few times so far this winter and I'm very happy with them. I've only ridden down into the 40s, but they kept my hands nice and warm and I'm sure they would perform well down into the 30s if I wanted to ride at those temps.

The gloves are very comfortable, I like the rubberized grips for the handlebars, and I like the hard armor on the knuckles. I was able to fit the gauntlets around the jacket cuffs, but it could use a little more room in this area.

As far as sizing goes, I'm somewhere between a small and medium depending on the gloves. I got medium for these and they fit very well and gave me enough room to put on a glove liner if I'm riding in very cold temps.

Overall, I'm very happy with the Alpinestars Apex Drystars and they will be replacing a couple older winter gloves I have from other manufacturers.

They're decent, not great
For $90, the gloves are fair, but not amazing in my opinion. They're quite warm, not letting too much cold air through, which is good for my 30 minute commute in sometimes 50F weather. However, compared to my alpinestars summer all-leather un-insulated gloves, they're not very tactile due to the layers, insulation, and fabric, which means I have a harder time flipping switches, opening my visor, or even just twisting the throttle (I have to grip noticeably harder). Also, there's very little leather on these gloves other than the base layer of the palm. It seems like all the other layers are fake leather, or some rubbery thing. Stitching and seams aren't the best -- I don't think they'd fall apart, but they're not as clean cut and sealed as other Alpinestars gloves I've owned.

Overall, if you're looking for gloves that are warm and functional, but not impressive in terms of build quality, these would work fine. However, I guess I expected higher quality and more genuine leather for the price.

Work well enough
I bought these looking for a budget pair of cold weather gloves for when it's not too cold to commute to work. This morning it was about 38-40 degrees out. My commute is about 40 min with an average speed of about 50 mph. About halfway through the ride the tips of my fingers started freezing so i believe this is a bit past the limit for these gloves. Otherwise they're comfortable and seem like they have decent protection.

Not as warm as I hoped
For the price, they are very well-made gloves, but they don't keep my fingers as warm as I hoped. 40 degrees is as cold as I can go with these on the highway for any length of time. Colder than that, the fingers start getting numb, and that's no fun. I may check out the Freezer II gloves, which are about double the cost. Otherwise I may have to plug in.

Needed waterproof and warm gloves.

They fit a tad bit small but are of good quality. It has been a very warm winter in Texas, so I haven't actually ridden in them.

I have always had a good experience with Alpinestars products. Looks like a lot of features for the money.

For its feature set, more insulation on back of hand and fingers. Price, insulation and waterproofing. For husband's Christmas gift!

What's the coldest weather this glove can comfortably be worn in without heated grips/liners?
Eric B on Aug 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: At 50F weather in northern california, my hands were very cold, but still tolerable. My body wasn't sufficiently insulated. I think if my body was kept warm with more layers, I'd be able to handle 50F with these gloves. The gloves do let small amounts of air through, which, at freeway speeds, can quickly make your hands cold in less than an hour.
Is the touchscreen tip similar to other Alpinestars gloves in that it will NOT work with iPhones or Android phones?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a Samsung S5 Android and both index fingers work on the touch screen. The seam on the tip actually helps with the accuracy when touching the screen.
Could I comfortably fit my firstgear heated glove liners on underneath of these gloves?
Darrin K on Nov 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I always wear a size LG glove and my hand measured as LG for this glove. It fits very snug to the point that I almost need to go up a size. If I wanted to put a liner in, I definitely would need to size it up.
