Crosspoint Knit Waterproof Glove
Knit gloves are fantastic for riding in the milder spring and fall conditions, providing adequate insulation, breathability, and dexterity until the precipitation begins to fall. In those instances, traditional knit gloves will actually become more of a nuisance, soaking up rain and becoming a wet, soggy mess. Showers Pass gets around this flaw with its Crosspoint Waterproof Knit Glove. Made with the right materials, it's not just ideal for cycling, these gloves are awesome for running, hiking, or any outdoor activity that might involve cooler temps and rain.
Showers Pass claims that the gloves are fully waterproof and it achieves this feat using 3-bonded layers. The exterior is a wear-resistant knit and feels just like the regular knit glove you are used to. Between that and the lining is a waterproof and breathable Artex membrane providing wet weather protection. Finally, a Coolmax moisture wicking and antibacterial knit lining sits softly against your hand. And unlike some other knit gloves, this one features a silicone print on the palm for better grip in the wet conditions you might find yourself in.

I've been commuting and gravel riding in the Crosspoint gloves for over two months. The Crosspoint knit breathes well compared to other gloves that are this warm. The gloves have kept my hands toasty in around 32 degree weather, however warmth is dependent on the ride. If I am working hard the gloves will be warm enough down into the teens. I gave them four stars because the gloves stick to the Velcro on all of my jackets. It's not a huge problem but is a little annoying to adjust my sleeve before putting my gloves on. The gloves look great, they're warm without making sacrifices in dexterity, and the waterproofing has been perfect for Utah snow showers. I would highly recommend the Crosspoints to anyone commuting in the cold! (might suggest the wool version if your hands seem to get particularly cold on the bike)
