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.
Like other European based brands, we find Dainese gloves to run a bit on the snug side as compared to most US based brands. The fit is comparable to Alpinestars and REVIT. The tendency to run small is not so noticeable that we’d advise you to buy one size larger, but if you are sometimes in between sizes, your best shot would be to choose larger. 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 Anemos Windstopper glove is made for cooler weather and maybe damp weather too. They give a comfy feel without the bulk.
The back of the hand of this glove is Gore Windstopper material. This material is a light weight flexible product by the makers of GoreTex. And while it isn’t waterproof like most of their other products, its made more for cooler weather where wind stopping and light water resistance will work. It isn’t a waterproof glove however. This glove will be for those that occasionally ride in wet or misty weather. I can picture this glove being great for fall and spring in the Northwest US or along the northwestern coast where it is often foggy and cool.
The glove is the wind stopper material on the back of the hand and suede with an extra layer of leather on the palm side. The molded knuckle protector is very substantial, but well shaped and padded on the underside so they feel good on the hand.
The cuff is a tight knit cuff made to go UNDER your jacket sleeve. These work great with most city or street jacket, but they don’t work so great with race jacket sleeves that zip down close to your wrist. But other than that type jacket, these should work fine. The knit cuff will also keep out the wind. The gloves have a Velcro strap at the wrist to keep the gloves in place in case of a fall.
So if a lighter glove for the cooler months of the year is what you want, this one ought to do the trick. :: Paul, 08-24-18
