Drystar Gloves - November 8, 2010, 01:09 PM

Any raccomendations on Drystar gloves.
I was eyeing the Artic and Vega models, but have no experience with their drystar line. Also if you know of any other manufacturers that have good products similar to these. Not trying to spend too much but at the same time I want something good.


E che cazzo!

Check out RevZilla's website.
RevZillaTV: Alpinestars Arctic Drystar Gloves Review - RevZilla

They have videos on all the drystar gloves. They also have a general winter glove guide that i thought was really helpful. I have been looking at all their vids while trying to decide what to get. I was going to get some drystars myself, but I ended up deciding to get some Rev'It Kelvin H20 gloves because I'm hoping they will handle the lower temperatures better. Hopefully they will arrive tomorrow so I can test them out.

I have a pair of light-weight drystars that I like. They get the job done. For winter I really like the tourmaster winer elite gloves. Very pliable, soft, well-inulated, waterproof, and not expensive.

I picked up a pair of Cortech Scarab Winter gloves a month or so ago. I've tested the water resistance in a handful of moderate rainstorms and they've held up. They are pretty much a winterized full guantlet sport glove. They could be a bit warmer, but not a bad glove for the price.

I have an older Vega version and like OSD stated, gets the job done. I also have liners that I wear when I know it's going to be colder than say 40ish. I can usually ride in em mid 30s for a couple hours before taking a break to warm up the hands.

I actually just got the Drystar Vegas today. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but they seem nice.

Why not heated gloves? I would imagine the gloves do a better job than the grips. The top of the line Gerbing T5 gloves sell for $170.

Salva, I have the exact set of heated grips that Dodge posted. Bought them last year and never installed them, and I have heated gloves now so I don't need em.

$25 and the setup is yours.
