Good Gloves but Bad Finger Lengths
By TheJawsome Ranked #23 - Gloves March 24, 2012
I got these gloves on sale from Dogfunk. The aesthetics are beautiful (I ordered the Cognac colour) and the gloves are made with a Gore-Tex insert and PrimaLoft One insulation, however, there are two issues that I personally don't like.
First, is the length of the pinky and index fingers are way too long. I wear size small in every glove (including these ones), but the pinky and index lengths feel unorthodoxically too long.
The second thing is that the leather pull-tabs for the hem cinch and security strap feel cheap. I'm afraid to pull on them too hard because they feel like they'll rip apart.
Otherwise, these are great gloves for the price I got them at. The gauntlet is really slim and not huge, which is perfect for riders who want to be able to wear their jacket cuffs over their gloves. And PrimaLoft One is Albany Int'l Corp's highest performing insulation for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility.
All in all these are great gloves but the poor finger length sizing is a disappointment.
The leather on the palms also feels a little soft; it remains to be discovered how long they'll last.
Also, the left glove does have a goggle wipe contrary to what Dogfunk's Tech Specs say.
