We test ARMR Moto’s entry level textile gloves, geared towards touring riders and they’re waterproof.
ARMR Moto are relatively new to the motorcycling scene, but actually have over 30 years of clothing experience. They believe great quality shouldn’t cost the earth and these textile gloves, at only £29.99, are a prime example.
I have used my WP525’s religiously for the past two winters and its tough to find any major faults with them. They’re made out of heavy duty nylon, with a built-in thermal and waterproof lining. This set-up certainly keeps the wind and rain at bay, and I’m yet to finish a ride and moan about the state of my hands.
The WP525’s also have some nice features, which you usually don’t expect for gloves at this price. Cowhide leather on the palm and along the finger panels is a luxurious touch. There’s also an external knuckle guard which adds some shape to the gloves and extra protection.
I used to wear my summer gloves with some thin liner gloves underneath. This did the job, but was a lot of hassle every time you got on and the off the bike. Despite the WP525’s not looking as trick as my leather gloves, or offering as much feel, they serve a purpose, offer extreme value for money and do the job!
One thing I will say, is the gloves did come up slightly small and took a few rides to bed in. I would recommend purchasing a size bigger than you normally would to prevent you having the same problem.
The ARMR Moto WP525 textile gloves are available in sizes XS to XXL and come in Black, Fluorescent Yellow, Stone, Red and Blue.
