For $150 I expected these to be water proof. The “H2Out” marketing made me think that they would be water proof, but after a two hour ride in the rain these things soaked up water like a sponge and my hands were all white and clammy. Maybe if you had a30 minute ride occasionally in the rain these would work, but I do not recommend them for anyone who wants to count on having dry hands on a long trip.
The insulation is very good, and the airflow is low because they are supposed to be warm gloves
