Unless you're from the Pacific Northwest, and actually live outside, odds are that the crew at Showers Pass spends more time riding in the rain than you. And this should give you plenty of assurance that the Crosspoint Softshell WP Gloves will shield you from the nastiest weather that you'd ever want to ride in.
As the name implies, they're built from a malleable softshell material that's been bonded to an OutDry waterproof breathable membrane. Not only is it waterproof and windproof, but it also allows sweat vapor to escape.
And while they're not quite as warm as the Crosspoint Hardshell gloves, they're decidedly more versatile. Plus, there are reflective accents to improve your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. Silicone grippers have also been added to the fingers in order to keep you in touch with your controls. Basically, if you haven't found riding gloves that are up to the task, and ski gloves are just too bulky, these gloves are right up your alley.
The Showers Pass Crosspoint Softshell WP Gloves are available in the color Black and in five sizes from Small to XX-Large.

Totally awesome, totally waterproof. Great race ready glove for terrible weather.
Cold, windy and rainy? No freaking problem man! You're going to be high and dry with these bad boys.
They're not the warmest gloves from Showers Pass, nor are they a lightweight glove for the casual drizzle. These are heavy duty "it's horrific, cold and rainy outside, but I'm riding anyway damnit!" type of glove.
One note on sizing up, I'd lean towards sizing. The fit is snug, and if you want to use a glove liner on the coldest of cold days, you'll appreciate a little extra wiggle room by sizing up.
