I bought a set of Alpinestars Vega Drystar gloves mid-May as I expected some heavy weather and the salesman (as they do) told me these things were completely waterproof. I also did a bit of research online, watched a RevZilla review and believed it is waterproof... Not my experience today. The weather in Melbourne this morning was fairly poor, relatively dense rain, but not torrential by any measure. By the time I got to work (about a 45km trip, took an hour this morning due to traffic), the lining of the gloves and as a result my shirt sleeves halfway to my elbow were drenched. Literally; when I squeezed the gloves, water dripped out from the lining. Perhaps I got a lemon. Anyone had different experience with these gloves? Anyway, I ordered a set of Held waterproof gloves just now, so I hope these are better. For the moment, I'll just keep sticking the Vegas over the heating vents.
