Experienced opinions on gloves - June 29, 2009, 07:20 PM

Looking for some opinions on gloves from people experienced in gear.

I've got about $100 credit at newenough and I would like to get some full length gloves. My current gloves are short and starting to show some wear.

I know I could easily spend $300 or more on the best glove out there, but that's just not in the cards for me right now. I'd like to try to keep it close to $100, but if an extra $25 makes a big difference I'm fine with that.

Lend me your knowledge!

Thanks!

I have these:

I've been buying cortech stuff for 15 years, and it lasts 15 years. It isn't the sexiest, but i've never had a single complaint about how well built/made their products are.


*sigh*

Anything that is quality and gauntlet style

The Gauntlet is what I'm looking for. Quality is where my question is, I just havn't been around the block so to speak and don't know.

I've heard Held makes good stuff, but they're pretty pricey too. Perhaps at my price point a different brand will offer me more function for the dollar.

But in the end, I just don't know.

$99.89 shipped (or maybe I have that backwards) - gauntlet style

Joe Rocket GPX 2.0

I just got them and rode with them a few days to feel'em out - wonderful glove. Full leather, vented on the knuckle protection makes hot temp riding doable. The stitching is double and of good material, which is good, but it's external around the fingertips...which had me worried that normal wear and tear would eventually undo the stitching - not the case. And external stitching makes the glove more comfortable on the inside. Good grip. Not super stiff when they arrived = less break in, more ridin'

They are true to size. I have medium JR SMX shortie gloves, but went with a large in these cause of the gauntlet style. My hand measures a 9.5 which is the end of the L and beginning of the XL on newenough.com - so I went with the L. Fits perfect. I had about a $100 budget too...took me a while to exhaust all my options and choose these, but glad I did.

+1 great gloves, very comfortable gloves with tons of protection, also for those like myself with small wrists, the double sided closure allows the gauntlet part to fit snugly

HELD Phantom / revit GT Corse

Held was more but comes w/ warranty of 1 year on all seams also comes with bladed finger for rain.

revit GT for a lower cost no blade but so far a great glove.

I've got the Held Thrux gloves and am very happy with them. Bought them from New Enough.

I was looking all over for Helds to try on, but no one had them in stock. So, I was at Coleman's FC and checking out what they had and saw the Sidi Powers in a case as I was walking out empty handed, and I'm glad I did. They are truely the most comfortable gloves (that are worth a chit**) I've ever worn. They go for $185.

Here's someone else's review:

**have a pair of cheap icons that are very comfortable, but would shred in 5 secs if they were in a crash.

+1, I'm sold on rs taichi, great stuff. I know it doesn't help much, as newenough doesn't sell them, though...
