    Default Mid-budget Waterproof Gloves

    Hi all! I presently use the Cramster Flux for my city rides & the Rynox Shield Pro for longish rides - both of which are not usable in the rains. With the monsoons in full swing now, I was on the hunt for good waterproof riding gloves that are in a medium budget range, around Rs. 3000/- to be precise.

    Here are the options I've found so far within budget I'd mentioned:

    1. Spartan ProGear has a product in it's Aspida series: the Poseidon, priced at Rs.2950/-

    2. Solace Striker is available at Rs.2599/- (on RidingKart website)

    Kind of surprised that Rynox & Cramster doesn't have any waterproof gloves in it's product listings. Anyway, could anyone please suggest other options that I could consider and most importantly, lend some personal feedback after using the products?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Cramster has a few gloves but they do not look impressive to me. The tundra, I guess is water resistant, not waterproof.

    Rohan in my group is using Solace and a few other guys too, it's a nice glove, the only thing is that inside has a liner, so if you get to fill water in the inner layer somehow, it takes little more time to dry, not as much as a leather glove.

    The gloves are pretty good and I would recommend you to buy.

    I am personally looking at Shima too, though they are more than twice the price, so still considering and may zero down to solace myself.

    Thanks for the inputs.

    Cramster’s site doesn’t list any of its gloves as water resistant/proof. Didn’t want to experiment with them for the cost.

    The fact that you’ve mentioned a couple of your buddies have been using the Solace and are okay with them is good feedback about the product. Actual user opinions are what count.

    Read a review yesterday of the Aspida Poseidon in another forum wherein it was mentioned that after a few weeks of usage the stitching started coming out in a few places. Not news that one can ignore for the pricing.

    I’m guessing that the Solace ones are perhaps better lasting since your friends haven’t mentioned any negative points as above.

    I provided you the contact, best to contact him once and know the product in detail.

    And yes I agree, more than specs, user feedback matters.
    Goodluck bro.

    Will definitely talk to your contact before making the purchase. Thanks a ton for that!

    I hope to put up my personal opinion here about the glove after some usage.
