Recently purchased on the promise of waterproof abilities but a pair of completely soaked gloves are trying to dry before the next 50 mile jorney home riding a Blackbird on motorway. Cuffs definitely far too short to prevent reverse drip from your arms and I'm not convinced the gloves are even slightly waterproof. One hour in medium but persistent rain has them soaked through.
Very light for motorcycle gloves though and reasonably warm but lack of experience in motorcycle glove design shows. I would ask for a refund but like the lightweight warmth and they're no worse waterwise than most.

Thats disappointing, I was considering these gloves but I'm shocked they're not 100% waterproof.
Re:the cuffs, surely sleeves on top of cuffs would work?

As a longtime motorcyclist I personally don't think there's any such thing as waterproof that isn't a plastic bag. these gloves , however , are pretty good on that front but are let down by the very short cuff so backflow down in to the glove is inevitable and quick - insufficient study with motorcyclists I feel.

I totally Agee with this review. You will see my own review on the sealskinz website. Tried these for 3 months then got a refund. Definitely lack of experience in motorcyclist design needs here. BTW, I have found the only glove which has so far neve leaked, and has an answer to the reverse leak cuff, the alpine stars jet road. Worth every pennie.
