According to Showers Pass press, the Crosspoint Glove and Socks are fully waterproof and made with three bonded layers. A wear resistant knit exterior that feels like a regular knit glove, a seamless waterproof breathable Artex membrane, and a Coolmax FX moisture-wicking antibacterial knit lining to keep unwanted odor away. In addition, an integrated silicone layer on the palm has been applied to allow a firm grip on objects, such as handlebars, in damp and wet environments.

    Are they warm or do they require liner socks in winter cold rain, would you reckon?

  • That’s a good question that I can’t answer. perhaps we’ll get a pair to check out. In the past I’ve used Goretex socks over regular socks which does provide additional insulation…

  • is this a sponsored post? it’s definitely not a review.. feels like it’s just been copied out of the marketing material

  • We don’t do sponsored posts. It’s news, as categorized…

  • @Jimcallender:disqus … as you’ll see here we started a new category for news and press back in February of this year: http://www.bikepacking.com/news/ —– “Industry and community news and press from around the world pertaining to bikepacking and two-wheeled adventure. Find releases and product announcements here…’. We choose products that interest us and post announcements for awareness. Usually one or two per week. Usually we mix in our initial impressions with some of the press release information.

    Hi , do you offer suggestions or a place to look for waterproof shoes? Thanks. How about sealskins brand for socks?

  • Not really. There are winter boots that do pretty well… a couple reviewed here: http://www.bikepacking.com/gear/apparel/

    Do they still keep your feet dry if the water is deeper than the height of the socks?

  • We haven’t tried them. but I doubt it… if they are anything like goretex socks, they are simply a liner to keep your feet dry from wet shoes…

    Mr. Watts, I recently questioned your total disregard and disrespect to the very Mother Nature you pretend to champion for, by traveling, i.e., flying, driving, train, bus, car, even mule if necessary, to collect your 13 pieces silver. Although I bet the use of the last few are your least used modes of transportations. After reading your replies, something about my nature (bitter, I think you said) that you couldn’t possibly know. I realized you just don’t care about the climate changes we are experiencing in a continuingly alarming manner. Or the direct correlation between those changes and use of fossil fuel transportations. Both you and Al Gore (and the other millions that ignore the effects of their own actions just to make money) should be restrained… or at least ashamed. After having seen your latest bit of cut-and-paste journalism? No…. more, lame commercial advertising. My God you didn’t even try the product that you are recommending. What won’t you do for a few coins? No! Please don’t tell me. I will wait for the Listerine Ad. Where do you live that is so horrible you can’t ride there and promote (exploit) for your pay?
