Our Two Cents
The Icon Patrol waterproof gloves are an interesting blend of leather, textile, and molded rubber construction. Most of the palm and tips of the fingers are made of a goatskin leather, which is soft and flexible, and there is an extra layer of suede like material as well for extra durability. The majority of the glove is a nylon material which may not be as effective as leather when it comes to blocking wind, but it does make for a lighter glove that won’t get quite as soggy if it rains. Speaking of rain, there is a built in visor wiper on the left index finger, which is a nice little feature. Reflective material is used at the back of the hand as well as in the logo on the gauntlet for some nighttime visibility. A clear rubber knuckle protector provides good protection for the back of the hand, and there is a carbon fiber pattern under the clear rubber (it’s definitely not real carbon fiber though). The gauntlet is a single Velcro closure, with a cinch strap at the base of the hand to keep the gloves securely in place. I really like the design of the strap, it’s very easy to operate with gloves both in tightening (simply pull and it stays in place), and releasing the tension. The Patrol gloves are lined with a soft fleece lining, and I would rate the insulation about mid way between very warm and lightly insulated. With the textile material I wouldn’t consider these for sub freezing temps, but they should be very comfortable in a variety of cool and or wet weather.
