The gloves are constructed using high-abrasion leather, with mesh panels in some gloves. The gloves are optimised for use in warm and dry climates. While leather gloves can be used in the rain; you will need to take care of the gloves after they get wet. Refer to the wash and care section of the gloves to increase the service life of your gloves. However, if you are looking for gloves that will keep the rain out and keep your hands dry, We would recommend SELA gloves with water resistance or waterproofing built into them.
