Note About Shipping: Items that show an availability of “Same Day” are physically located in our Lubbock TX warehouse and will ship on the same day as ordered if you order by 2 p.m. central on a weekday (or the next working day if ordered after 2 p.m central.)
Items showing “3-5 Days” will ship as soon as we receive the item from the Dainese US distribution system which can range from one to four weeks. The Dainese US distributor relies on inventory in their US warehouse as well as inventory overseas. Unfortunately their system is not capable of giving us a more accurate real-time estimate . If you are concerned about the shipping time on any particular item showing “3-5 Day” availability, please reach us using the Customer Service link here on our website, otherwise, we’ll assume you are OK with the longer time frame for delivery.

Most Dainese gloves we’ve carried run snug like other European brands, but this particular style seems to run “normally” like other US brands. So choose the size you normally wear.
Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
The Freeland glove by Dianese have all the basics for a good cold weather glove AND with a genuine Gore-Tex waterproof liner. The gloves are reasonably priced and functional.
The outside of the glove is typical nylon material on the back of the hand and and cuff and the palm is suede. There is double material in parts of the palm and also padded areas on the heel of the hand. The knuckle gets a molded protector for impact protection which looks nice and feels good too. The gloves have a Velcro strap at the wrist to make sure the gloves stay in place in case of a fall. The gauntlet closes with a wider Velcro strap. You can adjust that to fit either under or over a jacket sleeve.
A waterproof liner is integrated in between the outer shell and inside plushy liner to keep your hands dry… and remember, its a GoreTex liner which is a premium product. And there is a very light fill material in the glove for some light insulation. I’d recommend this setup for mild to cold-ish weather… say spring and fall. For very cold weather or warm weather, you’ll want something else. The tip of the index finger has conductive material so you can manipulate your tech devices with the gloves on. Also, you’ll find an integrated visor squeegee on the left thumb which will come in handy. There’s a lot of glove here for the money I think. :: Paul, 08-24-18
Dainese says: Proving that protection and waterproofness needn’t be mutually exclusive, the CE -certified Freeland has a breathable Gore-Tex® membrane and Techno® inserts on the knuckles. Other features include Smart Touch fingertips for use with touch screens, and a Visor Wiper on the left thumb.
