Need help from the ladies: Very small summer gloves wanted - August 7, 2008, 11:37 AM

I have a friend who is small, has very small hands, and needs riding gloves (she's a passenger so shorties/summer gloves are adequate). She received size small Icon Pursuits, but the fingers are too long by nearly an inch. These are from Newenough so we're looking to attempt an exchange with them.

Any recommendations? Much appreciated.

They are all going to be long in the fingers. I always have a good 1/2 inch or longer on mine. Try the extra small and just make sure they are comfortable for her.


Every time we hold our tongues instead of returning the sharp retort, show patience with another's faults, show a little more love and kindness, we are helping to stock-pile more of these peace-bringing qualities in the world instead of armaments for war. -- Constance Foster

I have Olympia gloves, size small and they fit great. My middle finger is a little under 3 inches if that gives you something to compare.

All opinions are welcome. You don't have to hold back.

I guess I should explain my opinion on gloves. I think if you go out railing then gauntlet gloves are a must. If you're chilling then I am of the opinion that summer/shortcuff gloves are adequate. I wouldn't expect someone to take a passenger out railing with chilling gear. I know for a fact that this particular person is not going to be a passenger on anything more than very chill rides, ever.

I know there is a wide range of opinions on this. Some people feel a tshirt and shorts are fine no matter what. Then there are people who consider anything less than a 1-piece to be inadequate, no matter what the purpose or pace of the ride is. For me, it's about context. Jeans ride = summer/shorty gloves. Got a passenger? It's a jeans ride then. You can certainly wear more, but you should ride a jeans ride with a passenger, regardless of whether you have railing gear on or not. That's my personal philosophy.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.
