+1 I had my 1st pair of BMW 2-in-1 gloves for just under 2 years when they started wetting through the fingers. I contacted Gore for a replacement claim. After a few emails and even a polite call they denied my claim due to 'wear' . They asked how I learned that they leak and I replied while riding my motorcycle in the rain. I also added that I tried the submerged sink test and they failed, which was why I was initiating a claim. Not like I do yard work in these things. They determined from the photos they were used beyond normal lifespan according to Gore-Tex. Then realized I was still in my BMW 2-yr warranty period and took them to my dealer. Walked out with new gloves. So yeah, 2 things happened: BMW accepted the claim from the dealer on my behalf or the dealer stood behind their customer and ate the loss. I hope its not the latter as no dealer can afford to do this as normal policy. My replacement 2-in-1 were perfect, and I am now on my 3rd pair.
