Verified Customer Reviews for Richa Arctic Textile Waterproof Gloves
As usual a great mid range glove.
Nothing will ever keep the cold out at motorway speeds but nice and dry hands after a spell of rain.
I've used these gloves now for a variety of temperatures. 2 degrees to 18 degrees. If you have good circulation they'll keep you warm for 30 minutes or so, at 2 degrees, 70 mph. I've found the duration extending as the temperature increases. The main issue that stopped this being an excellent rating is the lining that's meant for the waterproofing leaves my hands damp (clammy) this makes removing them an issue. Pulling the lining inside out. I've not been in enough rain yet to offer an opinion so far.
Warm, comfortable and dry. I have used these in heavy rain and I always been warm and dry. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and cannot afford to be cold. Highly recommend
Good fit apart from thumb a bit long for me. Lining move when taken off. But kept my hands warm and dry.
These gloves are a good fit for my hands. They have a good exterior finish and feel robust so far as I have only had these a few weeks. They have kept my fingers dry and warm so far in the recent cold weather they have performed well.
I cannot comment for the test of time having only had them a couple of weeks, but the quality appears very good.
I bought them for the winter months. I have no front fairing on the bike and my fingers get a little cold. They work as intended keeping my hands warm and dry.
I ordered these alongside the Carbon Winter's to try. Couldn't really see where the difference in price was. They seemed well made, but definitely not a premium feeling product. I returned them as I've opted for heated gloves.
I have not tried these gloves in really cold temperatures yet. But they seem very good quality. My hands are towards the top end of large according to the size chart I bought XL which are a great fit for me.
I needed some gloves for the autumn months and noticed these had good reviews so purchased a pair from the excellent SportsBikeShop. Great gloves at this price point, well made, warm, true to size and excellent service from the SportsBikeShop.
Bought these based on other reviews with the hope they would be warmer than my £45 gloves. Rode for an hour at 1 deg centigrade, after approx 25 mins started to feel a bit cold, by the time I got home my fingers were painfully cold. I have hand guards but no heated grips. Going to try some silk glove liners to see what they're like then, hopefully better! Seem well made though time will tell.
Picked these up from a recommendation. Been feeling it during the cold days on my old gloves which say they was the best so stumped up the hight cost only to find these they wasnt that good. Gutted tbh. These from the of seem much thicker and warmer. Cant say how good over a 2 hours ride but 30 min in 6 degrees are ok. Only time will tell actually how good but I am optimistic
Great winter gloves. Good fit and feel. Keeps your hands plenty warm in even the coldest jaunts. Not so thick that tactile response is compromised. Price point is brilliant. You could easily spend 50% more money for 50% less performance. Sportsbikeshop once again is the only place to shop. Phenomenal service.
Cracking glove, really warm and waterproof, good dexterity for a well insulated product. Plus you can still use heated grips for extra warmth.
My third pair of these and the previous pair are still ok after 6 years
Pros: keeps my hands warm. Waterproof so far.
Cons: liner moves inside glove making it harder than it needs to be to put on. Very chunky, poor throttle sensitivity and harder to use controls. Can no longer use a touchscreen.
To warm at the moment,the gloves are to good, looking forward to winter for a better review.
I bought these gloves for my sons birthday. I've bought them before and he is always pleased with them. They are good quality and hard wearing. Good protection for the hands.
I'm very happy with these gloves, they keep me warm and dry and are of good quality. I would agree with the other comments about size. I had to go for the 3XL when normally would be XL or 2 XL although getting them changed was easy with SBS returns policy and good customer service.
