The waterproof Covert glove from Knox combines a fully functional foul-weather glove with plenty of performance and protection.
The headline here is a the patented OUTDRY technology, which consists of a membrane bonded to the leather of the glove itself, rather than relying on a membrane that sacrifices soggy gloves while holding out water.
Although technically billed as a summer glove, the Covert has enough heft to it to work as a great shoulder season, or a cold-weather urban riding option. It also excels as a summer touring option.
Made from full 1.0mm Korean Cowhide construction the Covert gets 0.8mm Pittards digital goat overlaid on the palm and finger tips for increased durability. It also uses Knox’s patented low profile double-scaphoid palm protectors.
Strategically placed 4mm biofoam panels placed on thumb, top of hand and outer wrist add extra protection and a Velcro wrist closure makes for a secure fit. And the waterproof zip makes it easy to get on and off.
