Held, a name ubiquitous in the motorcycle industry, has come out with the warm weather complement to their extraordinarily popular Held Warm N Dry Gloves. The brand new for 2011 Held Rainstar Gloves are a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable option that feature a classic leather style. They will get you through the worst of the elements in Spring-Summer-Fall, but if you live in a milder climate or you use heated grips, the Rainstars could realistically be your go-to four-season glove.
Check out our Held Rainstar Gloves Review:
Waterproof breathability comes from the Gore-Tex membrane that is bonded to the shell. Gore-Tex is the most breathable of all waterproof membranes, keeping all precipitation out of the glove while allowing perspiration to escape through to the outside of the glove preventing the hand from becoming clammy and gross. A huge feature of this glove is the Outlast PCM (Phase Change Material) lining system. Outlast interacts with the temperature of the body to maintain optimal comfort. The materials absorb and store heat prior to perspiration taking place, thereby creating a microclimate within the glove. When the skin temperature drops, the heat from the PCM is released to warm the hand. Futuristic? Yeah, we'd say so.
Another standout product from Held, this glove should definitely be within the range of consideration for any long distance touring rider that tends to battle the elements on long rides. Check out our full range of similar gear by visiting our Waterproof Motorcycle Gloves section.
