These were my first pair of leather gloves. They're pretty, they're warm.
The velcro is supposed to be amazing, and function even if snow gets in it, but this was not the case... I was just riding park, and still the small amount of snow the velcro encountered kept the velcro from attaching securely. These aren't good gloves for a powder day, unless you're a total badass who never sticks your wrist in the snow.
The first time I wore them, I broke off a wrist strap, and I was disappointed that they were so shoddily made... they seem sturdy elsewise, so if you don't use wriststraps, no biggie (the wriststraps are attached by a girth hitch, they don't come connected to the gloves... the part the strap hitches to is what pulled out of the seam).
