New Gloves

I just picked up a pair of Held Air N Dry gloves. I was going to wait until I had rain tested them before posting a review but I like them so much I thought I would go ahead.

The gloves are a bit pricey but seem to be very very well made. The Air portion is perforated kangaroo leather and was comfy on the ride home tonight. The dry portion is a full Gore-Tex liner that is accessed by sliding your hand into the second compartment in the glove. They are guaranteed waterproof for the life of the glove. I will be testing these further in the next couple of weeks on my way to Montana and back. I will update once I get in a little rain.

Held Air N Dry Gloves - RevZilla

Those are nice looking gloves. Pricey, but nice.

How do they stay waterproof with perforations?! Magician gloves I tell you. At that price though, I'd be looking at the Knox Handroids or their $199 model, which also has a BOA system

The gloves have a dual chamber system. There is video on Revzilla that explains it some. Basically you can choose to put your hands inside the Goretex or not.

Still haven't ridden in the rain but I did ride home in the low 90s and high humidity this week. The air flow was decent but not as good as a true summer glove. I was more worried about how they would be in the heat than the water. They are guaranteed waterproof so I don't expect any issues there.

I have now used these in a wide variety of conditions. Everything from 54 and raining to 104 stopped in traffic. At 54 they were just a bit cool but perfectly dry. They were just as good at 104 as any other glove I have ever had. These are truly the best gloves I have ever had.
