Aerostich waterproof triple digit glove covers

I was thinking of getting a pair of these for long trips in the rain and cold to go over my regular gloves. Has anyone else got a pair or tried them? How'd they work out?

I have tried every conceivable rain glove made, well almost. None have worked to my satisfaction. I am a big fan of Aerostich, and this is my favorite. These glove absolutely keep my leather gloves dry and in lots of snow too. They are slightly slippery on the grips, but no serious problems. The nice thing is they pack very small, and the three fingers gives dexterity yet gives warmth like a mitten.

Allen, thanks for the swift reply as I soon am about to set off across the U.S. touring and camping on my 74 CB 750 and needed to order them soon if I was to get them. I thought they, as you say may be a little slippery but I guess I can live with that. How are they for size? I notice Aerostich says for winter gloves to order the bigger size. I like the "lobster claw" 3 digit style and as you say I bet they are warm.

I just wore a pair of Sinisalo enduro waterproof gloves to nordkapp & murmansk and they were bloody superb, they also have a wind-stopper insert. On really cold and wet days i had a pair of light polyproplone under gloves. the waterproof sinisalo enduro pants are also the bees-knees.

Well I got a pair of the aerostich raincovers , 'arrived this morning. After Allens advice(thanks) I ordered the Xl size instead of the L. The XL are just the right size for over winter/mid season gloves and they fit perfect. They even are not too big over my thin olympia gel summer gloves(good gloves by the way) as they cinch up perfect with the velcro strap. I really like these already and especially the top of the covers at the gauntlet opening as you can as they say at aerostich indeed pull on the cord with your teeth while holding the cordlock and they close up nice on your jacket sleeve.There is a strap which goes over the back of your wrist area which cinches up there with velcro also.I am quite looking forward in a way to riding in the rain now as I'm sure they'll work as good as they look and fit.
