We Didn't Like
We really like these gloves and we have come to expect a high degree of performance form the Gor-Tex family after all they have been setting the standard for high performance waterproof clothing for a while now. The gloves are water proof for about an hour. After that they are not. We went on a 2.5 hour ride in the rain and when we got back our hands were soaked with water. I was careful to have the rain jacket cover the cuff so not to let water in that way.
The Final Say
Gor-Tex has been setting the standard for high performance water proof active outdoor clothing for a while now. Other companies are starting to give Gor-Tex a run for their money with new technologies and fabrics. The Gor-Tex C5 gloves are a great all around glove for the fall and early winter and spring. If you are going hard at this time of the year you will appreciate just how breathable the glove are. They are absolutely wind proof and very highly water resistant. However, I live in the PNW and when if I get caught in the rain it’s usually for a long time. It’s not just for 10 min and its dry. The C5 performs in the rain up to about an hour and then it falls short. Light rain, rain showers you are all good. If it comes down in buckets and you see an old man building a giant boat then no. For an all around glove for the fall, spring and light rian these are a great choice. However, if you ride in the rain for more than an hour then consider other options.
