We Say – These looked like quality gloves as soon as I looked at them, the shell material looked very durable with its silicone coated fingers for extra grippyness. Once I tried them on even better, fitted like the proverbial, especially around the fingers which were very snug. The long wrist cuffs and drawstring helped keep the worst of the weather out while the padding had just the right amount of protection to feel the bar yet help dampen vibration. The absorbent thumb material is always welcome but the thermo lining was average. I found that anything sub-zero and my hands were ok for the first hour but after that they went numb and know matter how much I shook them wouldn’t get warm again. The gortex held out for about an hour in constant moderate rainfall after which they a bit soggy but due to the fact of them fitting so well wasn’t too bad but some water repellent coating may have helped if applied.

In Summary – A good quality glove with a great fit and feel, just let down by really sustained cold or wet conditions.
