Definitely NOT Waterproof
Yeah, I know - you get what you pay for. Well, in this case I should have known better - [$] for a waterproof glove? Not likely.Bought these before a long trip across Nevada where it was likely that I would run across some wet weather. I did, and for an extended period of time covering two days. After the first day, the gloves felt a little moist, but I chalked it up to 'maybe they're just cold'. The next day, there was no mistaking it - they were soaked. My hands were cold, my fingers 'pruned' after riding with these gloves. It took 3 days for them to dry out.They actually fit very well and were comfortable gloves for 45 degree weather. Good in the wind - when dry. But don't buy these expecting them to protect you in the rain.

PROS: Comfortable, Inexpensive

CONS: Not waterproof

Not good
Look good, and fit ok when hands are dry. If you take them off, to refuel for example, they are impossible to get back on with damp or wet hands.

PROS: Snug Fit

Great gloves
Great pair of gloves that are much warmer than I thought they would have been. I also have a pair of heated glove liners but have not needed them because these gloves keep my hands plenty warm.

PROS: Weather Resistant, Well Padded, Comfortable

You cant beat these on price. Got them in locker at work in case the weather turns foul during the day. Back up gloves only.

They are warm and they are comfy. But don't expect Italian style and quality for the price.

PROS: cheap, Warm

CONS: No armor

BILT Waterproof gloves aren't waterproof
I just returned from a trip to Alaska, where it rained everyday. These gloves are NOT waterproof!

On the plus side, the gloves were comfortable, they kept my hands reasonably warm, and the cuffs on the gloves were long enough to cover the cuffs of the jacket sleeves (no parachute effect).

PROS: Snug Fit, Breathable, Comfortable

Very poor lining
I've worn these gloves about half a dozen time and the inside lining appears shredded and bunched up. They were comfortable at first, but don't seem to have very good quality in the lining. They are still usable, but extreme care must be taken to find the finger holes as opposed to going through the lining and next to the glove itself.

PROS: Comfortable, Weather Resistant

CONS: Seams Split

BEST USES: Safety, Street Riding

Not as advertised.
Very little good to say about these gloves. Bought them for wet weather riding, so really needed the waterproof protection. Later realized that there was no added padding for accident impacts. After 10 mins of light rain, water starts soaking through. Used several times and had to wring the water out at the end of my ride. It would take all day to dry out afterwards. I don't understand how people say that it keeps dry, but that was their gloves.

PROS: Breathable, Snug Fit

CONS: No Protection

cold, wet hands no more
I have so far purchased three pairs of these and plan to purchase another pair when my current ones wear out. If you're not a fan of cold weather riding, these gloves should help change your mind.

PROS: Breathable, Weather Resistant, Comfortable, Warm

CONS: Bulky

BEST USES: Bad Weather, Rain, Cold, Street Riding
