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.

Glove Measurement Instructions. Icon is determined by measuring the width of your palm at its widest point - little below the knuckles.
Comment: Wind proof-No
Waterproof - No
Warm for long rides - if over 50 Degrees maybe
I purchaced these specific gloves for long and cold air days riding- My dress leather lined business gloves do a better job.

Comment: I bought these gloves because I have ridden in Portland OR rain and bought into their claims. These gloves will not keep your hands warm. My cheap gauntlets are warmer. I live in Central Oregon and ride in temps in the teens. I tried these in 40 to 45 degree temp and after 30 miles could not feel my finger tips.
