These gloves are great. This is my third pair over several years. There are not many products I do this. Found them cheaper here than Showers Pass own site. These gloves are good down to about 40deg, after that I'd consider other options. They are easy to get on and off even when your hands get a bit damp. They repel water and breathe well.
Be careful washing them, I tossed my first pair in the washer and the plastic inner layer became twisted and would then cut off circulation on that finger. There was no way to fit it, so now I hand wash them in warm soapy water.
So maybe they are not perfectly waterproof but for any wet ride with temperatures above freezing these gloves work great. The fit is excellent and the grip is nearly perfect. There is not 'grip slip' when I've ridden. I can combine with shell for greater warmth but the grip suffers a little. I have two pair now, one in each color.
My thinner cycling gloves keep my hands warmer then these shower pass gloves.
I gave up the ability to finger touch my phone and a more tactile muffled ride experience due to the bulkiness.
This expensive purchase sits in my cycling apparel drawer unused.
I ride in the Seattle area and when it gets wet and cold in the high 30F/low40sF, its a tough test of any product over a 2+ hour ride in these conditions . The gloves worked great, super tactility on all hand positions and my Di2 shift buttons and braking. Size and fit were right. Kept dry most of the ride, but combined with my hands natural perspiration and the wind chill my fingers were pretty chilly after 45 miles. A harsh test admittedly, so I'm very happy with the purchase to augment my other Showers Pass Crosspoint Wind TS.
I was ready to be disappointed by these. But, they've been really good. Even in the cold and wet they've stayed comfortable. I wouldn't use them on really cold days - maybe 40 for the low temp, or 45 if it's raining.
I tried these out, they worked well. But, then I crashed hitting a wet paint line. I wasn't going fast, 12 mph. I hit the wet paint and went down hard. My hands never touched the ground, yet when I got up I had three fingers sticking out of the left glove and the right glove was ripped on top. Looked like I hit the ground going 20 mph. Too delicate, I would never get these again.
These fit really well and are comfortable and stretchy and have decent grip. I don't think they are exactly "waterproof" (I use them for snowboarding and they do get wet). I'd say they are *mostly* waterproof. That's fine, as they are moderately warm and are comfortable. I don't think I'd trust them on a very-cold rainy ride without some back-up gloves in case these soak through, but they seem sturdy and well-made.
I've worn these with an uninsulated shell overmitt in temperatures below 30deg, and they're as warm as insulated lobster mitts plus a lot more flexible if temps go up on the ride. They can get a little clammy probably due to the waterproofing, so I'm confident they'd be great in wet weather. I like the hi viz yellow -- nice and bright when that's needed.
These gloves do a great job keeping your hands dry in the rain. The fit and feel are perfect, providing just enough padding. They also are warm to a point. When I wore them in temperatures in the low 40s, my hands did get cold after a while. But at that temperature, I should probably wear a full winter glove.
I've commuted about 100 miles in 45 degree rainy weather with these so far. All I can say is that they are drier and warmer than I thought they would be given the weight. I am pleasantly surprised. They do a really good job of keeping my hands dry.
....although haven't ridden with them in the rain (it's been 2 months). Can tell they have a waterproof layer in them, and they are surprisingly warm for a knit glove. I can wear them to 45 deg comfortably. Below that, I add a chemical warmer.
Great gloves for rainy days and also cool days. The grip material is a plus and the fit was excellent, recommend them to all of the Portland cyclists who venture out
Great gloves for multi hour rides in the 40s. Nice and light and don't interfere with road feel or controls.
Would be great if they worked with touch-screens.
Woke up to a snowy morning gravel race and was afraid my hands were going to freeze. These Showers Pass gloves kept my hands warm and dry.
These gloves keep my hands comfortable from the low 40's into the 50's. They are pretty wind proof and waterproof. They feel good; nice and snug.
Unable to operate a phone without removing the gloves. Also had frozen fingers in 45 deg. weather, wish there was a little more warmth. Balmy hands/poor wicking in weather 10 degs. warmer
Have used these on a day when temperatures were in the low 50's and for me, they are nice, but one of my fingers started to get cold. I like the way they fit and feel.
I bought these when they came out, but I never wear them because I cannot use my Garmin screen or my iPhone screen without taking the gloves off first.
