I purchased Gerbings Heating Motorcycle T-5 Riding Gloves. The Manufacture recommeded the use of Glove Proof. Follwing the NIKWAX instructions, Glove Proof was easy to apply and drying time as advertised. While we have not had freezing weather here in Florida, the heavey rains were not able to cause...

    Hard to put on a glove or mitten and didn't notice any improvement in the waterproofing. Stick with the sprays.

    The five-star rating is for how well the product does its job, and for what it is supposed to do it makes true on its promise. After spending time applying the waterproofing and letting it dry for two full days, I put on the gloves and put my hands under running water and the water beaded off like one would expect. That is the amazing reason for the five-star rating!

    You should know, however, that it takes patience and tenacity to cover the gloves as the instructions say. But if you are willing to spend the time then you will be happy with your investment. After purchasing very nice Gore-Tex gloves ($109) I was a little frustrated to find that by the end of the day on the mountain my gloves were almost soaked through and my hands were freezing. But after spending quality time applying this waterproofing I am certain that the days of my wet and cold hands on the mountain are behind me.

    I ski frequently and wet gloves are a problem. When I use glove proof heavily on the entire exterior surface of my gloves, the insides stay dry, even on the palm. I reapply every 20 days of use, or before any airline ski trip (worried about TSA folks thinking its flammable - it's not).

    Using this on deerskin gloves, seems to work well, not enough exposure to wet yet to know how longer-term exposure will work

  • “Does this product work on wool? Does it need to be reapplied after a couple of uses or is one application enough? Has anyone used this product on a knitted hat? Wondering if the product can help a wool hat stay less wet on light rain”

  • “I have several pairs of nylon/leather shell gloves, each with GoreTex (or similar fabric) waterproof lining and either Polartec or down insulation, all from various companies. Can this product, the Glove Proof, be safely used? In other words, will it compromise the GoerTex, etc.? Thank you!”

    • It should not effect the Gore-Tex.

  • “Does anyone know if this product changes the color of lighter colored leather?”

    • According to one review. "When I buy new ski/snowsport gloves, before use, I apply Nikwax Glove Proof. It boosts the waterproofness. It does not change the color of light/white gloves, like other products that I have used."

    • The can of this Nikwax Glove Proof has a sponge at the top, which you use to sponge the product onto your gloves.
