Alpinestars Mens Motorcycle Gloves,I tried these gloves on several recent winter rides. OK, my winter rides in Arizona may not be like your winter rides in North Dakota. However, I tested these gloves at 65 miles per hour in sub-40 degree temps. The Alpinestars ST-1 Drystar Gloves kept my digits comfortable. I did not ride in wet weather, but rider reports are that they are adequately waterproof as well. Here are the details:

The gloves are constructed of 500 denier nylon outer shell, with a breathable and waterproof Drystar membrane. There is a fleece lining that is not too bulky. They have subtle and attractive embroidered logos.

Despite the "Clarino" reinforcements on palm and thumb, the protective potential of these gloves is limited by the materials. They will be better than nothing in a fall, but will not approach the protection of leather.

For me, the gloves were a more generous fit than other Alpinestars gloves I've tested. This is more than likely due to the fact that these are touring gloves rather than the race gloves I've worn before.

As a glove for cool (not bitter cold) and wet conditions, I think the Alpinestars ST-1 Drystars are a good choice. They are available in sizes small through 2XL.
