Castelli Diluvio Deluxe Gloves $0.00
Neoprene for the landlubber.
When your training plan pitches you against freezing cold, your hands will be the first to feel the effects. Fortunately, for scuba divers, surfers, and those of us who refuse to get off of the bike when the weather gets nasty, there's neoprene. The Castelli Diluvio Deluxe Gloves were designed with the sole purpose of keeping your hands warm.
Few materials excel at defeating the cold as proficiently as neoprene. Accordingly, the Castelli Diluvio Deluxe gloves were constructed from 3mm neoprene. This way, the gloves insulate in order to keep out both wind and chills. Textured grip on the palm makes sure your hold on the bars remains secure at all times. And because exposed skin is unpleasant, whether it's your hand or wrist, the gloves' cuffs extend far enough to tuck it inside your jacket's sleeves.
Castelli included its classic Scorpion graphic on the back of the hand, and a terry nose wipe strip on the forefinger to finish the gloves. It's important to note that, although neoprene will keep light drizzle off your skin, it's not waterproof. When was the last time you saw a dry surfer after all? However, like a wetsuit, the more water that you encounter, the warmer that the gloves will get.
The Castelli Diluvio Deluxe Gloves are available in the color Black and in the sizes Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and XX-Large.

Comfortable and full of grip.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L/XL
The neoprene really holds in moisture, so clammy hands beware, but the cushion the neoprene brings to the table helps on long rides. The under hand silicone pattern is really grippy too. Works well when wet.
Pretty good while they last

Definitely not as warm as some other neoprene gloves but either with a liner or above 45 degrees they're fine. However, the seams are a huge weak point. They are so permeable that there is not even a slight degree of water resistance however they do keep your hands nice and comfortable while they're wet (which is sort of the point of neoprene). My only real complaint is again with the seams. I'm writing this review while I shop for more gloves because these gloves are completely coming apart. Just single stitched with crappy thread which ruins nice neoprene and a nice looking glove.

- Fit: Runs small
I was looking for neoprene gloves for cycling in the rain down to around 40 degrees. These gloves are not 100% neoprene and are not waterproof. If you want 100% neoprene gloves get the Simms gloves designed for fishing (I kept those). I put the Simms on and stuck them in a bucket - no leaks! I did not try the Castelli gloves on the bike - once I found out they were not waterproof I returned them. I do not recommend the Castellis only based on these gloves not being waterproof. They may be fine otherwise.
A little disappointed

I bought these "Deluxe" gloves after several years of total satisfaction with the "Standard" Diluvio gloves. The description states these are 3 mm thick neoprene, same as the Standard. I find that spec very suspect. When I hold the Deluxe next the the old Standard there's a big difference in thickness. The main body of the glove appears to be 2 mm and the thumb portion 1 mm. While that won't have much effect in the wet, the cold weather insulation is significantly less than the old Diluvio @ 3 mm thickness throughout. The thin material around the thumb (especially wrapped around the hoods) really limits the temperature at which these are comfortable.
