Alpinestars Gore-Tex 365 gloves: summer update

Published: 02 July 2009

For a pair of gloves designed to allow all-year riding, combining waterproofing with warmth for the worst of the winter, they're doing a bloody good job in this week's 30-degree heat!

There's just enough venting at the fingers to stop my digits from boiling, and there's just a hint of sweatiness when I arrive home, and have to lever the gloves off my fingers.

But summer gloves would give you the same problem in this heat ­ in fact, anything made of leather is going to stick to skin when the temperature gets this high.

These gloves have officially become the only pair I'll ever need.
