At every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.

What the scores mean

Proviz's REFLECT360 Waterproof Cycling Gloves do a great job. They keep the water out in all but the heaviest of downpours, offer loads of reflectivity for visibility, are warm, and they even come with some padding. My only realm criticism is that the fingers are shorter than most brands' gloves, and there is no nose wipe. And if you are in the market for gloves, check out our best winter cycling gloves buyer's guide.

If you ride a lot in the dark, especially in traffic, reflective gloves are a big bonus, giving drivers behind a 'glow-in-the-dark' hand indicating your intentions once their headlights illuminate it.

There will be absolutely no missing these Proviz gloves on that score, considering how much reflective material Proviz has used. This covers the entire back of the hand, the thumb and a strip on the cuff. And if you don't want to go for all-over reflective gloves, Proviz also does them in other colours – yellow, black, orange, blue and pink – with reflective stripes on the fingers and cuffs.

In the months I've been wearing these gloves, they've been washed numerous times – well, this has been a wet British winter – and I'm glad to say the reflective material is still looking in tip-top condition. Some reflective materials can be quite fragile, so it's good to see that Proviz has focused on quality here. In fact, the gloves are well made throughout.

I also found the gloves effective at keeping my hands warm whatever the temperature. Even riding in sub-zero conditions isn't an issue, with the very soft lining material proving extremely warm. And the lining doesn't pull out when you have sweaty hands.

The water resistance is also pretty effective. Riding in very heavy rain, which there's been no shortage of recently, some water did get in through the seams. But the reflective sections repel water, and as they cover most of the glove that faces the elements, the level of protection is very good.

And I found that even when my hands did get a little wet, they certainly remained warm.

The gloves have a silicone pattern on the palms that stops you losing grip of your bar in the wet and, a bit of a bonus on winter gloves, these also have a couple of padded sections.

These consist of a thin section across the top of the palm, with another section in the middle. They are subtle, but they provide sufficient plushness if you're riding gravel tracks or bridleways in between road sections.

The cuffs are long enough to fit under a jacket's sleeves, and they're secured by a Velcro strap, ensuring a snug fit and preventing your wrists from getting cold.

In fact, I like the fit of these gloves. They have quite a slender cut, so they don't feel bulky and you retain 'feel' through your hands while you're riding.

I do think the sizing comes up a little small though. I wear a large glove in pretty much every manufacturer's line-up, but as I have shortish fingers, I normally have a bit of spare length at the end of the glove.

These were a snug fit. There wasn't a huge amount of room around my fingers, and my fingers went right to the tips of the gloves' fingers; if you have 'normal'-length fingers you might want to go up a size.


At £49.99 these are much cheaper than the £73 Cafe du Cycliste Audax Cycling Gloves that Ben gave a mixed review to.

Chiba's Bio-X-Cell Winter Warm-Line Thermal Waterproof gloves not only have an impressively long name, but George found they also kept the elements out and maintained warmth. They are a little bit pricier than the Proviz gloves at £54.99.

The Galibier Barrier Deep Winter gloves come with a good amount of reflectivity and will shield you from pretty much everything the weather can throw at you, and cost just £28.68.


Get the sizing right and you'll find yourself with highly reflective gloves that also stand up well to the winter weather – and for a decent price too.

Not a comment on the gloves, more about proviz. I have their Pixelite Gilet, and would happily buy a pixelite jacket, but they are only available in black. So, very visible at night, not so much in the day.

My thoughts exactly, I've no idea why a company whose customers are, by definition, going to be highly visibility conscious makes jackets that are only visible in certain conditions. Mrs H has a Proviz Nightrider silver/grey jacket, absolutely perfect at night, she wears a fluorescent gilet over it most of the time because in daylight and at dusk it could actually have been designed to camouflage a rider in traffic.

The unique selling point of ProViz was their garments being made almost entirely out of a retro-reflective material. It certainly seems that the best (or at least most widely used) material for retro-reflective garmets is grey - any generic hi-viz jacket, the reflective bits are grey. I would certainly agree there is a trade-off, but some people may prefer greater reflection than more conspicuity in daytime. 

If you want something that is a mix of reflective and fluorescent/hi-viz, I don't understand why you would have chosen ProViz in the first place - plenty of established cycling brands already catered to that market segment (think Altura Nightvision; DhB Flashlight). 

I think ProViz now offer jackets that are colours other than grey whilst still being reflective all other, but looks like those colours are still fairly subdued compared to (non-reflective) fluorescent/hi-viz colours.

Personally, I think being well lit is far more important at night than being highly reflective. For daytime riding, reflectives are largely pointless and I would stick to bright/hi-viz colours. 

Which is a roundabout way of saying I agree and I don't think ProViz jackets are the best solution, but I also think it's a bit harsh to criticise ProViz for trying to do something a bit different and finding their own niche.

Provis rely heavily on retroreflective materials in their garments., The retro prefix means they reflect light back towards it's source, ie vehicle headlights. (Nothing to do with old school!)
A grey retroreflective garment is only Hi-vis if you are picked up in headlights and offers little benefit on roundabouts, slip roads, etc, or protection from vehicles emerging from side roads. They may even have the adverse effect of making cyclists think they are more visible than they really are.
A Hi-Viz garment must contain both Fluorescent and Retroreflective materials.

Admittedly my version of these gloves are a good few years old but I found they were neither particularly warm or waterproof, so barely used them.

Glad they have improved.
