Wait, why do I need rain proof gloves in California?
Well to answer that headline, because it rained in San Diego.
After I came back from a deployment I realized it wasn't summer anymore and my hands nearly froze off in the morning hours on the way to work. After that, I promptly placed my summer gloves into hibernation for the winter and began my search for some gloves that'll keep feeling in my fingers.

I arrived at the Cycle Gear closest to my location and started my search in the vast selection of jackets for hands. After about an hour of fashion fingers I made my decision on these Alpinestars.

Now these gloves has an internal liner built in with 2 straps, one on the gauntlet and one on the bottom of the wrist that fitted me quite well. Finger flex wise was great. I didn't have to work out my fingers just to do some basic functions like pick things out of my pocket. After a quick purchase and a few days later came the trial.

My commute was only roughly about 30 minutes on the highway. Rolling through the streets doing roughly 30-40 Mph in about 40 degree weather, the gloves held up. Doing highway speed (70+ Mph because Cali) in 40 degree weather, the gloves started to loose its warmth. Now, it was no where near the pain of the summer gloves. But it was an upgrade. I think if I put on a pair of the Bilt glove liners it would do the trick.

Bottom line is: It works great for cooler weather and is very rain resistant as of today since the skies decided to cry for a bit, probably because it was Monday.

PROS: I Can Feel My Hands

CONS: Still A Tad Bit Cold

BEST USES: Cooler weather, Regular Weather, Is That Rain In Cali
