Rainy day ride motivation.
Finding motivation to ride in the rain can feel a bit like trying to fit your helmet into an overstuffed duffel bag, especially in the early fall after an entire summer of dry, sunny roads. The versatile and lightweight Gore Bike Wear Women's Countdown Gloves step in during those rainy days to get you motivated and out on your bike with confidence that your hands will stay warm and dry.
Made from lightweight, element-blocking Gore-Tex fabric with a fleece lining that's as soft as a barrel full of snuggly pallas cat kittens against your skin, these gloves will keep your hands dry and cozy in even the most torrential of downpours. Hook-and-loop strap closures at the wrist let you cinch the hem down over your jacket cuff to seal out errant drafts and rogue rain drops, eliminating cold, damp distractions during the ride.
The Women's Countdown Gloves include gel padding in the palms to absorb energy-zapping vibrations and cushion the ride, with absorbent material on the thumbs to quickly mop away raindrops and sweat out on the road. Silicone coating on the fingers provides a stable grip on the handlebars, while reflective elements increase visibility to motorists and fellow riders in low-light and rainy conditions.

I purchased these gloves for fall/early winter bike commuting. However, the fingers were too short, I tried sizing up and had the same issue. The wrist length and hand with worked well.
