The best motorcycle gloves for winter 2023

The first thing to bear in mind when choosing winter motorcycle gloves is that they insulate against the cold and water, but also that this doesn’t compromise the feel we have with the motorcycle’s controls. It’s no use having warm hands if we’re then imprecise whilst riding and we put our safety at risk. Also, generally, this type of glove must have a long cuff and should integrate a waterproof membrane as well as a thermal lining.

Just to get a quick idea, winter motorcycle gloves can be classified into 3 main groups: those with a Gore-Tex waterproof membrane (or one of its different types), those with a waterproof membrane of another brand, or even, finally, heated gloves that play in a different league altogether.

Armure Faust Long gloves, the best value for money


We start this list with the Armure Faust long sleeve gloves. Equipped with a waterproof membrane, they are perfect for rain. They are basically touring gloves and excellent value for money.

What you should know? They have a very comfortable inner lining and protective knuckle and palm inserts. These are simple, comfortable gloves that are perfect for a winter without too many complications and for which you have a budget 

Rukka Thermog + Gore-Tex Gore Grip Gloves


Another on the list of the best motorcycle gloves for winter are the Rukka Thermog + Gore-tex Gore Grip gloves, one of the best coldweather motorcycle gloves on the market.

They are made of a combination of very resistant elastic fabrics and the palm of the hand is made of leather, the perfect material for good grip and, above all, abrasion resistance in case of a fall.


The important thing about these gloves is that they have the Gore-tex Gore Grip waterproof membrane, which offers high water resistance with minimal thickness. It also incorporates an outer Thinsulate lining and an inner thermal lining, perfect for low temperatures.
