Icon PDX Waterproof Gloves If you were to make the riding season in Portland into a pie chart it would look something like a pizza with one small slice missing. The small slice is the time when it's not raining. The rest of the year is well, pretty much wet. Like the rest of our PDX line, the PDX waterproof gloves were made for the rain. Our biggest challenge was to make them waterproof without compromising dexterity and feel. Embossed neoprene flex panels in critical areas provide plenty of flex and pre-curved palm and fingers ensure great feel from your controls. The waterproof textile chassis with over-the-cuff gauntlets keep the moisture out. Protection comes by the way of abrasion-resistant palms and heavy duty construction.

Haven't tested the waterproofing but it is a great full length glove. Great for early morning or evening rides when the weather is cooler.

These gloves are great on a hot day, they vent very well and still provide great dexterity, and protection. Can be a little chilly in the morning riding with these gloves but once it starts to warm up they work great and are very comfortable.

Wanted a nice modular with a drop down sun visor, that would fit my glasses better. The helmet works great it is comfortable and easy to use. Feels very durable and feel like it would protect me very well. On the colder mornings I have some issue with fog but its really just at a stop and lower speeds, once I'm moving as long as the chin vent is cracked I've never had any issues with fog. I have the Black and riding in 70+ weather it never feels to hot, and the fit is very comfortable.

I bought this jacket as my first motorcycle jacket. Was supposed to be waterproof, had a full removable liner, plenty of vents, shoulder/elbow armor, and back pad. For the price you can't beat it. Works well in cooler climates, I've used it early morning about 45 degrees, and with vents open it stay fairly cool in the 60's and 70's however you do notice the waterproof liner in the sun at a stop. Overall get jacket for the price.
