New: Richa Summer glovesSun, 01 Jun 2008
Rain all winter and snow in April has drastically lowered my expectations of the impending Summer (I prefer to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed), therefore these mid-season gloves may be the main pair nestled in my helmet over the next few months.
Mostly leather with textile mid length gauntlets and deliciously soft fleece lined interiors make for a decent pair of mitts.
A zip on the gantlet to pinch them in gives you the option of wearing them either in or outside your jacket sleeve and the Velcro wrist strap tightens at the right spot, far better than some of the prettier pairs on the market, which in my book make them great for the daily commuting grind.
Pros: Wear well, comfortable
Cons: Stretch – so get them small
