Best Cold Winter and Waterproof Gloves

Exactly as the title states.. Your thoughts from personal experience. It gets really cold here and wet during the winter. I need one set of gloves for the Winter Season. I do not mind buying from Europe so please chime in.....

Here, I even took a picture of them for you! RS Taichi RST609's "Gore-Tex Grand Winter Glove" for $139 are the best gloves by a long shot for the money. Gore-tex waterproof, heat-generator inner liner, Thinsulate insulation. They even have the smart-phone electrostic pads on the fingers. They're awesome, I have 2 generations old version of these gloves still going strong, love 'em!

A few reviews .
What I hate about winter gloves is getting them on and off especially if your hands are a little wet and they just feel bulky.

No, they suck.....



If you ride when it's REALLY cold you can also add the RST123 heat-generator inner glove liners under them. I've ridden to work on a naked bike (i.e. no handguards) at mid 20-degree temps with that setup and hands stayed warm. I'd prefer handguards and heated grips on a Multistrada if I was PLANNING to ride when it's that cold, of course!

well, today for example - 65 and sunny during the day. I ran around town on my Panigale with normal leather gauntlet gloves. but I had client appointments that ran into the evening, where the temps dropped into the mid-50s. I switched to the Multistrada, where with the heated grips I can actually use summer gloves.

What sucks is that if the Panigale also had heated grips, I probably would have stayed on that bike. I may add an aftermarket option, although I'd really prefer not to mess with the stock grips, which I like very much.

I can't be bothered with batteries, wires, so heated gloves are something I've never considered. So it's regular insulated gloves for me. And when I need practical/durable, I move away from the pretty Dainese stuff and go with boring BMW.

They work, until you soak the insides with perspiration. Then they get very, very cold. So the trick is to carry a bunch of latex gloves. The gloves keep your hands warm in two ways - as a vapor barrier liner, and by keeping the insulation inside the gloves perfectly dry. The latex gloves need to be changed at every stop, so like 1-2 hours. They're a lot bulkier than normal gloves, but not overly so - it takes a bit of practice to not have your fingers trip over the levers, but once you're comfortable with these gloves, they will work to extremely cold temperatures without needing heated grips.

But PLEASE DUCATI give us optional heated grips for our 1299s!!!!

I'm in the same boat, looking for a pair of warm waterproof (Gore-Tex) gloves.

Was in a store and nearly bought these, but I found the fingers a little long. I walked around, carrying them, looking at other stuff and finally put them back.

They only had a 9L that was close to my size, so I think I mail order the next size down and hopefully they fit.

Very nice glove for the price.

Yeah, I was there for a few years back before we became a Ducati dealer, 2004-2006. I was riding a 749R back then, as well as lightweight race bikes (SV650, Ninja 650). I'd love to get back up to that track again, it was a blast!
