I don't like everything!! I have a near new pair, can't remember what size but I'd be happy to sell for 50% new cost plus shipping. The claw shape prevents me from using the front brake or clutch. When I have my electric gloves on I have to force my hand open, extremely painful after awhile, just to put my hand over/around the grips. I eventually had to take them off and I've never worn them again.
I then bought the Firstgear rain gloves XXL, largest size they make, and everything was OK until I actually had to use them over my electric gloves. Could not get the Firstgear gloves over the electric gloves, plus Fristfear fingers way too long, and again the force required to open your hand to operate the brake was too much for me and again I took them off and got my electric gloves soaked. The Firstgear gloves will work in the smaller size on smaller gloves, ie the XL size work fine for me with normal leather gloves on.
Also tried the yellow dish washing gloves and they didn't work either. There has got to be a waterproof solution for wearing large winter type gloves in the rain. I guess the newer electric gear is probably Gore-Tex and you don't need any over glove, but I have two pair of the older electric gloves which I like and two pair of winter non-electric gloves which I also like and don't want to get rid of them.
