One "Held" of a glove!
I purchased the Held Air N Dry glove to replace my Dainese 2 Stroke gloves for warm weather riding conditions. The thing that most attracted me to the glove was the 2-in-1 glove concept. The Air N Dry has two different pockets: one that is a Gore-Tex waterproof section and the other is a perforated airy alternative. I have been caught out in the rain several times while commuting and there is nothing worse than having waterproof gear everywhere else other than your hands. I did not like having to bring an extra pair of gloves with me each day that it threatened to rain so having the option of a waterproof glove all the time is very appealing.

During normal riding conditions I will slip my hand in the bottom compartment which is the non-waterproof section. This section flows the most air and has the least amount of material between your hands and the bars. Even though the glove is designed to flow air and has venting on the top of the glove the air has a hard time passing through the Gore-Tex membrane. I have found that if I stretch my hands out more air flows in from between my fingers.

The upper Gore-Tex lined compartment provides a waterproof/breathable option that is wonderful if you are an all weather rider. The Gore-Tex section has a slightly more relaxed feel but does add more bulk to your grip. I have found that I lose some tactile feeling when using the Gore-Tex compartment. The glove has a nice large Velcro closure and a wrist adjustment strap. The Air N Dry is a full gauntlet style glove but fits easily under the cuffs of my riding jacket (Revit Horizon).

I found the fit to be on the smaller side. My hand size measured just less than 9" and a Revzilla Rep. suggested I go with a size 9 since Held gloves run on the larger side. I received the size 9 and found them to be too small (I might just have big hands and don’t realize it!). I exchanged them for a size 10 and they fit better. I feel I could go up to a size 11 but they are at the point where if they stretch some it will be a perfect fit.

The deceiving part for the fit of this glove is the addition of the extra Gore-Tex section. Keep in mind that when your hand is not in the Gore-Tex compartment you will still have all the extra material fighting for space within the glove. I would suggest measuring your hand and going up 1 or possibly 2 sizes in order to accommodate the extra space needed to house the "extra glove".

Overall, I have been impressed with the glove. The price is a bit on the high side but you have to keep in mind that you are basically getting 2 gloves in one package.

Held Air N Dry Gloves
Very well constructed. I recently used them on a long ride in and out of rain and my hands stayed dry. Air flow is less than a mesh glove, but significantly better than any waterproof gloves I've worn. A little bulky with the gore-tex liner, but overall very comfortable. Protection appears to be substantial.

Another Held Glove to the bunch
Been a follower of Held products since I started and was hesitant to purchase these for my Held glove collection.

I wear a size Large in most gloves (be a 9 in the Held industry) and wanted a glove that was in between the summer season and winter season. I ride a 2007 Speed Triple, so I have minimal wind protection for my hands (to give you a bit background).

So in the October/November months, my normal summer glove choice is the Held Phantom, and are perfect to wear later on in the day, but were awfully cold in the mornings, and on those cloudy days. I needed something a bit warmer to help out. I picked up these gloves hoping they were the solution. I've owned these for about 18 months now, so I believe I can give an honest review.

Some things I really like about these gloves:
-Very Comfortable to wear and sizing is spot on
-Two different pouches to slide your hands into depending on the weather at hand
-Got that nice Held logo on em
-Airflow on the "Breezey" pouch is very nice on the palms
-Fits perfectly with my Held Carese Jacket (looks-wise and fits perfectly under the zipper sleeve)
-Velcro is solid and strong
-"Clear Vision" Index finger wiper (found on most Held gloves)

Some things I do not like about them:
-That pricetag
-These are NOT a 4 season glove as I keep hearing from research, incredibly cold in the winter (+ cold mornings) on a naked bike
-When taking them off, the inside lining almost always catches my hand, so it almost requires two hands to properly take them off

So bottom-line, If you're looking for a good glove to wear in between the warm and cold seasons, this is definitely a good glove if you want to be a Held supporter.

To save a few bucks you can easily buy a summer pair of gloves and then buy a winter pair for the two seasons and use one over the other depending on the season instead.
I definitely recommend them if you found out about them, and are on the fence about buying them (and have that money to burn on another pair of gloves). They are great for the in between seasons and when it starts to sprinkle (Held's Gore-Tex is amazing and will keep your hands dry and sweat-free!)

I have numerous Held Gloves and am reviewing em all since I love the company and find them all incredibly comfortable. Check em out!

exactly what you expect
This glove is everything I wanted it to be.

Fits great for long fingered hands.
I've had the gloves for about a month now. Started off very tight and broke into a second skin fit.
When using the cold weather chamber, you'll notice some tangible difference in range of movement but they are certainly the least bulky winter gloves I've tried on.
Totally dry in the rain!

I'd recommend these to anybody!

Great Gloves
I bought these gloves to extend my season. I live in ct and october can get pretty cold.

Warmth: these gloves are great for cold temps. The wind resistant gortex layer is extremely comfortable but still provides a decent amount of tactile feel on the controls. I ride in 35+ on a sport bike and i can sustain short rides no problem. The key is to put your hand in warm. Regardless over 20 minutes your hands will start to chill, but you won't get much better than this without wearing thick snow gloves. If you really need that extra heat i suggest heated grips.

Comfort: the gortex layer takes a ride or two to get used to, but after that i found myself always using it even if i could go to either pouch because i like the feel. The hot temp side is also very comfy.

Air flow: if you're using the kangaroo side for airflow is actually quite a lot. The backside of your hand can become warm but just put your hand in the wind and you'll instantly feel better.

Overall i love these gloves, they look amazing, very strong, great protection and very warm. Highly recommended.

Great Gloves
I have had these for 3 full seasons now and they have seen PLENTY of rain. They have even some sleet and snow.
The dual nature of the glove is great too. Makes it easy to ride into/out of different temps.
Or if you need to pack light, the inner liner makes it two gloves in one.
Even with my hand in the inner liner, there is little loss of feel for the controls over my summer riding gloves.

Prior to any road trip these gloves get a quick spray from a waterproofer and they hold up well. Anything from intermittent to heavy rains these gloves will keep you dry
.
As with any glove though, they have their limits. They are not torrential proof. A long heavy rain will start to get some seepage too.

Short of having dish-washing or latex gloves as a cover/liner, i think these are going to be the best purchase for waterproof gloves you are going to get.

First 4000 miles in the Air N Dry
I received these gloves a few days before a big ride. I traveled from the humid and hot Midwest in the peak of summer to the dry and very hot desert of Arizona and Nevada. My hand size measured to be exactly 9.5 according to Held sizing chart. However, the Air N Drys only come in full sizes. After reading comments that they stretch over time, I chose to order the size 9 instead of the 10's. Upon first fit they are very tight, almost to the point of discomfort. I wore them for the whole 4000 mile trip and they became slightly more comfortable as I went.

My hands were neither extremely hot nor extremely cold necessarily however, the air chamber seemed less effective simply because you have two layers of gortex on top of your hand and the perforated area was in the palm which is holding on to the grips. I found myself holding my palms in the wind to get airflow(look mom, no hands while driving)

When I got in the mountains and the temp dropped to 55 degrees F and raining I put my hands in the gortex chamber. My hands got cold enough that I am concerned about when the temp drops below below 50F.

If all goes well they will stretch out more and stay warm when the weather drops. Time will tell.

Not worth the money
You'd be better off buying two separate gloves.. One that is for dry weather, and one that is for rain. Today we had a good rain and the gloves were just okay. My hands were not soaked (like with leather gloves, but they were not dry. Certainly NOT waterproof. Maybe water resistant. The little whipper on the index finger is useless.

The protection is good, the size runs small. I wear a large in Joe Rockets, but these I had to send the large (sz 9) back, and get the XL (sz10).

Early in the game, but happy so far
First, from a size perspective, I am a XL in Alpinestars and a Large (9) for this brand and model. I followed Antony's lead and it is right on.

I really like the feel when riding the dry setup, good grip and looks very solid. Of course, in the Gortex chamber, you loose quite a bit of feel, but this was to be expected.

I wear them inside my jacket since it is a better fit and in the rain this is the best way to cut the water from getting alongside your sleeve into the glove. I red reviews where some guys were saying that the gloves are not waterproof, but I am sure it is the way they wear them and not a glove defect. I wore them in the rain and my hand were perfectly dry.

Within a weather range
I agree with UK61: these are for use within a temp and weather range.

I used these in SoCal Winter. My hands were freezing. These are not cold weather gloves unless you have big hand protectors...and even then...if it rains...my hands got soaked. Those vents to keep your hands cool also let in copious amounts of Ecuadorian rain.

Above 80-85, my hands were sweater to an extent that made the gloves hard to put on.

Within that weather window, they performed well. They cleaned up well. They fit me well within the suggested size for me.

Tom H on Jul 17, 2017
I decided to buy this because of it's dual purpose. In Minnesota it can still be pretty cold in the morning 40 to 58 degrees and then by late morning or early afternoon it's 75+ outside. So I wanted something that could quickly adapt to the changing weather. Love the knuckle protectors and the extra air flow. The gloves are a tad bulky - if there could be any complaint. But you give up sleek, thin style so that you can get air vents, knuckle protection and dual purpose.

Regular goretex gloves are extremely hot in summer, so I will leave these other regular goretex gloves for winter riding!
Daniel G on May 24, 2017
Two gloves in one. If it's cold or wet, slide your hand through the top layer and you're protected by Gore Tex on the top and the palm of your hand. If it's warm and dry, slide your hand through the bottom layer, and you'll have a perforated leather grip that vents effectively. Excellent quality.

Carlos G on Sep 1, 2017
wondering about the added bulk of having the Gore-Tex layer stashed in 'Air' mode. If it's hanging out against the top of your hand, doesn't that negate some of the airflow coming in from the vents? Is the bulk noticeable/distracting?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Since I live in Charleston, I was really worried about them being too hot for summer riding and I mean SUMMER riding. So far, I haven't been too uncomfortable commuting in this glove. The won't flow as much air as a shorty, sport mesh glove (which I have), but the perforations on the palm allow you to get really good air flow if you put your hand into the slipstream when you are riding. The do get a little warm when sitting in traffic, but the quick change to "downpour" mode is so quick that I'll pay the price. I just reviewed the product, so check that out. The gloves feel a whole lot less bulky than I thought they would. Oh, and they are amazing in heavy rain! Hope this helps
Are these gloves too warm for use in Florida? How is the venting on these when riding a sportbike?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: That's somewhat of a subjective thing. Personally I think these are great all around 3 season gloves. I would easily wear them in Florida (maybe not in Aug though), they do get a little warm because of the length, vs say a summer specific glove that is much shorter and allows for more air to get in around your wrist and under the jacket. Keep in mind that the venting is only on the palm side of the glove and only if don't put your hand into the gore-tex layer.

Like I said I would be happy to use these in Florida, year round in fact, except for the stupid summer months you guys have there. For that I would get a lighter shorty glove.
Am looking at either this or the Held Evo Thrux to replace a Joe Rocket Highside as a typical 3 season commuter/tourer. Seems the Held air n dry would outperform the Thrux in the summer but am wondering how well it would do at typical spring and fall temps in the NE in keeping hands warm enough? Does the liner add any warmth at all? Can the air n dry be stretched out to a 3 season glove or is is better suited to a 2 season (late spring, summer and early fall)? Perhaps a better question is what would be a good temperature range for this glove?

BEST ANSWER: I haven't ridden with these gloves in the winter yet, but they feel like they would handle down to snow temps, but I suspect either heated grips or brush guards to get the wind off a bit would be quite helpful. There isn't a ton of thickness to these gloves, but for a short commute, in town in particular, these would do nicely, but that's just the opinion of a guy from WI. Good luck!
Will this glove fit over the cuff of a jacket?
Michelle K on Jun 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes this glove will fit over the cuff of a jacket. I've had this glove for over a year now and it is one of the best gloves I've ever had. I wore it on a trip to Alaska and it performed flawlessly. You won't be disappointed by this glove,
Is the Gor-Tex lining attached to the chassis of the glove throughout or is it a free floating pocket attached only at the rim allowing it to pull inside out when having damp/wet hands like many other lined gloves?
David G on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Maybe the lining is supposed to be attached to the chassis, but after one summer of use, the linings on my pair started pulling out whenever my hands got wet or even damp in the rain. They stayed attached only at the wrists. It is virtually impossible to get the linings back in when wet or damp; I have to wait until they are completely dry and then reinsert them finger by finger.
Hi, please advice which size should i get? As currently, i'm using alpinstars XP-5 large.
A S on Oct 5, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I can't compare to your current gloves, but this was the first pair of gloves I've ever bought and the size guide was accurate. I think I was around 8.5 and bought a size 9 just in case.

The fingertips ended up being a little longer than I wanted so I should have gotten an 8 but the difference is negligible and I have no regrets about the purchase.

So if Alpinestars gloves (or at least your model) are "true to size" or whatever the phrase is then I would expect the same size to be correct for these Held gloves.
I'm looking for a good adventure riding glove, 50/50 on road, off road that's light enough to allow great tactile feel of the controls. I find some are a little bulky. This glove seems to offer the temperature flexibility, just wondering if there's enough protection there, or would you suggest something else better suited to off road?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Air N Dry Gloves are designed as a warm weather vented glove with a two-position waterproof/vented liner. As a vented glove without insulation, it's not suitable for cold weather riding, even with the hand in the waterproof compartment. From a protection standpoint, it is very capable both on- and off-road, due to the leather construction, Superfabric reinforcement, venting, knuckle and wrist protection, and the all-important visor wipe.
I'm wondering if this glove would be warm enough for a 10 to 15 minute commute at about 40 mph in anything from 20-30 degree temps? I have a pretty high cold tolerance and get warm rather easily.
A shopper on Sep 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The Air N Dry gloves really would not be ideal for winter weather. If you were to use the Dry chamber along with some heated grips it would likely keep your hands from getting numb, but we do not feel they would keep you as comfortable as possible. Instead we would recommend the Held Warm and Dry if you have heated grips, or if you want a true winter glove the Held Freezer gloves would be our recommendation to keep your hand nice and warm.

An interesting side note, if you visit ridemyown.com/windchill you can calculate how cold it will feel at a given temperature and speed. At 25 Degree's Fahrenheit and traveling at 40mph the windchill would make it feel like 6 degree's Fahrenheit.
Can you wash these gloves? I have tech-wash for my fabrics.
james h on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On the tag that is attached to the glove there are no washing instructions. I have not washed mine yet. However, I do not see a reason why they could not be washed and dried. Definitely could be hand washed and air dried. The way the gloves are constructed I believe they could be machine washed and dried as well.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I see a comment that says these run small. I measured my hand and it's 9"-9.25". Would you recommend the L or XL?
Dennis B on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My hands are about 9.5", and I took size 10. They fit perfectly! They were a bit snug initially, but they tend to loose a little and take the shape of your hands.
