Great pair of gloves
This is the best gloves I have ever had. Protection is excellent all round. I particularly like the hard outer shell on the wrist. I like the strapping system a lot too. It requires two moves to tighten but as soon as it is fixed, there is no way the glove can slip from your hand. The feel on the fingers is good, despite the inner layer. The outside stitching also contributes to this. You can feel some ridges on the inside of the glove but the overall comfort is great. The sizing is accurate, although I believe it is on the tight side. It may become more loose as it is broken in. The whole glove is actually quite stiff, being a leather glove. The wiper on the finger is excellent and a must in the rain. There is also ample perforation to help the glove breathe during warm days. I bought this glove with protection and comfort in mind, not as a full winter glove (I plan to use heated glove liners for the really long cold trips) so if you are looking for a very warm glove maybe this is not what you want. One thing I dislike (and I haven´t found a glove that I like in this particular spot) is that the thumb is really tight and you cannot move it freely at all. I know it will give in a little but not enough. This can produce a lot of discomfort on a long trip. Unfortunately I haven´t tested the gloves in the rain yet, but I will trust the goretex membrane and its guarantee. Every other goretex badged clothing I´ve had was excellent. All in all, a great glove.
