My wife and I used to have a whole closet shelf full of cheap gloves that looked and felt really good in the store. Get out when it was the least bit cold or wet and the CHEAP gloves showed their true worth. Gloves need the same quality as the rest of your riding gear. YRMV but that's my opinion and it's worth just what you paid for it. :)

I've really enjoyed the Aerostich Triple-Digit Rain covers. They've been 100% waterproof over the last 50k miles. I like that I'm not stuck with wet gloves for hours/days after it rains.

Thank you Dr. Neo as I was looking for some water proof gloves and the Aerostich Rain Covers hit the spot!! Bought those for the few days I see rain.

After a few dozen tries I settled on a pair of Klim gloves that did not fit my budget....but costs less than the total of the ones that didnt work well. Sometimes saving money is pricey!

Sometimes you do get what you pay for. I'm not a huge Klim fanboi, but the Klim waterproof gloves I have do keep my hands dry and are a lot less bulky than the Bilt waterproof gloves I had before, (which also kept my hands dry). I still carry three pairs of gloves when riding. Some lightweight no gauntlet summer gloves, a pair of Aerostich elkskin gauntlet gloves and the Klim waterproof ones for cold or wet riding. The elkskin is good from 40F to 80F+, but the lightweight summer gloves typically win out living in MS now. Better air flow in the humidity.
