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.
Read on for more details.
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 X-Tourer D-Dry gloves by Dianese is a very nice textile glove with insulation and a waterproof liner for use in winter. It has a substantial protector over the knucles and padding in the heel of the hand.
I like the tailoring of this glove. Its sharp and well made. The knuckle protector is super comfortable and blends right in to the design of the glove. I also like the cuff arrangement. There is a very wide Velcro closure at the end of the gauntlet so you can adjust for any type of sleeve on your riding jacket(s).
The insulation thickness seems “moderate”. Its not a big puffy glove, but its not thin either. It will definitely be good for colder weather use. The inside is lined with comfortable material. The overall weight of the gloves is very light which is nice when you are packing all the other winter garb.
Safety-wise, this glove has the usual features… molded knuckle armor, extra padding in the heel area of the hand and a positive closing strap at the wrist to keep the gloves on your hand in case of a fall. Other nice little features are: a visor wiper on the left thumb, touch pad material in the index finger to check your phone and reflective lettering on the back side of the hand for night time visibility. :: Paul, 11-14-18
