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. Waterproof textile chassis Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Reinforced rubber knuckle armor Reflective graphics Goggle wipe on thumb Precurved palm and finger design

The Icon Patrol gloves are simply great, great gloves. I decided to spend a little bit more and go for a full and real waterproof pair of gloves after a disappointment with the TourMaster's Dri Mesh gloves (supposed to be waterproofed, but was a total fiasco...Sorry TourMaster, is the truth!). These Icon gloves are my third pair and are superior in quality and features.
As I live in a tropical country, I was looking to have a 101% waterproof pair of gloves but not too warm. The Icon gloves are bit warm, but not too much (at least not during the evenings and rainy afternoons, I use a different pair when it's hot and sunny). Also, as any other winter gloves (I guess) they're bit bulky as well, but after couple of rides one gets used to them.
Besides that, these gloves are perfect. I had used them under rain while my hands are perfectly dry (as any waterproofing gear should work!!). Their reflective panels are quite cool, and have very convenient straps which helps them to fit perfect in my hands and over my jacket's sleeves. The protection offered is also much better compared to the other pairs I have. Bottom line: you can't go wrong with these. Definitely would buy again.
Yes, I recommend this product.

If this supersport jacket has the same type of "breathable+waterproof" membrane than the 1.0... then beware... It is NOT waterproof. I got soaked with the Supersport 1.0 after 20min under heavy rain. After that I estimate that it could keep you dry under light rains and during short periods of time, but it is definitely not waterproof. Besides that, the jacket is great. Has the best venting system I haven't seen, great style and great protection. A must-buy if you have a second jacket for rainy season!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I own the Duke 1.0 jacket and I am very happy with it. I assume that 2.0 should be better, then the relevance of this review. This one is truly waterproof, unlike many others there claiming to be breathable+waterproof (there's no such thing). Although I haven't been under a very hard downpour, the Duke jacket keeps me dry under normal rains. Its style couldn't be better, and its quality is high. Little bit warm if you ride above 70ºF, its venting is very limited (guess waterproofing implies sacrifices in other things). Its cotton outer material wil attract some fluff, which is easy solved with a lint-remover. Be aware that this one has limited protection (no CE armor included), just some foam; you can always get some extra armor to put in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Waterproof, breathable internal barrier allows for the passage of air and perspiration, while remaining completely water tight Comfortable, abrasion-resistant Armor-Link mesh backhand and fingers, with perforated goatskin leather accents and stretch Lycra forchettes Durable, reinforced, perforated goatskin leather palm, with light EVA foam padding to reduce shock and vibration Pre-curved palm and fingers improve comfort and dexterity, and help to reduce hand fatigue Armor-Link mesh and perforated goat skin leather combine with a hook and loop wrist closure for a well-ventilated and secure cuff

These pair of gloves may be called water-resistant, but definitely not waterproof. The tag "waterproof+breathable" is misleading, there's not such combination. The Dri-Mesh Tourmaster gloves are breathable, but not waterproof. Tried them riding under rain and my hands were 100% soaked after 15-20min. Misleading advertising.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These guards are good in terms of providing protection, but the finish isn't as good. The straps are made of a material that the velcro loves, and it sticks constantly all over them, causing the straps to become unravel and messy. On the other hand, the knee guards are quite bulky; unless you use very loose-fitting pants, forget about using them under your jeans. I will use them until I buy new ones in few months.
No, I do not recommend this product.
