Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves Eighty percent of the controls on a motorcycle are operated with your hands. The Patrol waterproof gloves were designed to keep you in control when the weather turns foul. The fully insulated and waterproof design provides maximum comfort and protection. The chassis is not only waterproof but features a mild precurve design to reduce hand fatigue. The palm is constructed of Battlehide goatskin for optimum feedback yet maintaining durability. Reinforced rubber knuckle armor covers the backhand along with a reflective graphics package. Finally, an integrated goggle wipe built into the thumb helps keep your shield clear.

It's hard to complain about this glove at $75, but the thumb is a little long. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but the other fingers are perfect and I use my thumb for the turn signal.
These are crazy warm, though. I have the matching pants and jacket and think the world of them. Highly recommended for cold/wet weather commutes.

Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket Whether your ride includes chilly mountain passes or a soggy morning commute the Patrol Waterproof Jacket has you covered. Representing our most technically advanced all weather riding jacket, the Patrol will go the distance with unmatched safety, comfort and weather protection. To keep out the wind and rain, the abrasion resistant nylon chassis is fully seam-sealed and includes waterproof YKK zippers and a quick action magnetic storm flap. Mounted within the chassis is a full complement of Field Armor CE approved impact protectors. A full 3M reflective graphics package provides optimum nighttime visibility. Six intake and exhaust ports provide ample mechanical ventilation while the removable Thermolite insulated liner helps keep your core temperature regulated. Externally, we added enough pockets to carry everything you need for distance rides and included a removable external hydration pocket to hold a 1.5 liter waterpack (not included).

It took awhile, but I've assembled the entire suit. I'm 5' 11", 180lbs, 34x32 pant size.
I bought a medium jacket and the upgraded back protector. Without the thermal liner, the jacket was the perfect size. I bought this suit for cold/wet weather commutes, though. With the liner in, it was too tight. It noticeably restricted my movement. So I swapped it in for a large and, even though I have to tighten down every adjustable strap available, I can make the armor sit in the correct position and I can breathe!
For the gloves and pants, the medium fits best. If you pay close attention in the video, the model is wearing a medium with a 34" waist, even though the size chart says that he should be in a large.
Warmth is incredible. Wearing nothing but a t-shirt underneath, I was sweating when it was ~50F out. I have ridden in sub-freezing with a couple layers comfortably. This is another reason I'm ultimately glad to have the extra room in the large jacket. Combining with the gloves and pants makes a huge difference, as well.
I haven't had a chance to test the waterproof-ness, but I decided to share what I did know. Buy it!
