new gloves

Looking for recommendations for a good lasting, tested water proof glove that is warm(not really a requirement on the beamer) but certainly not bulky!!

Would love to be under 100 but if its nice enough i might push it a little.

Wim you got anything??


found these but no experience with teknic! Great price just don't know how to size them.

My vote is for Veloce Legionaire's! I picked up a pair from WIM last month and they quickly became my favorite gloves. I used to be in love with my Held Steve's, and they have been sitting on the shelf ever since the Veloce's arrived! They're not waterproof but maybe he has something else for you?

I have a pair of Veloce Centurions(S/P?) right now, and they are amazing. I have road in the rain several times and my hands have always stayed dry.

Moving forward, Veloce is going to focus more on gloves. I am working on fulfilling the last orders... depending on when you want your gloves, I can explore the possibility of water proof gloves.

Do you want water proof leather or other material. By the way, thanks for the endorsements.

Wear your gloves to home depot, lowes, etc. and find a pair of rubber paint stripping gloves that fit over them. I have had 3 or 4 pairs of supposedly waterproof gloves, and none of them were. The best I had only lasted about 5 hours in the rain and they were soaked through.

Also, I would avoid a glove with a waterproof "liner" as the outside shell will get soaked and waterlogged. I had a pair of those as well, and although my hands stayed dry for a while, the soaking wet gloves completely sapped all the heat right out of my hands. I was left with freezing blue fingers.

The best part about using rubber gloves over your street gloves is you don't have to sacrifice protection. Another bonus is that the rubber gloves are cheap and you can carry a couple pairs along on a trip.

If that doesn't work for you I would suggest the lobster claw rainproof glove covers sold by rider warehouse. My buddy uses them because he has giant XXXL hands and we couldn't find any rubber gloves big enough to fit over his regular gloves.

Good luck.
