Other wise i stick to some Rev'it Sirius.


I am also using Rev'it Sirius this winter.
I just picked up a pair of Alpinestars Celer v2 in anticipation of warmer weather.

Deerskin insulated gauntlets for winter. Spring through Autumn I switch between Joe Rocket gel palms and deerskin work gloves. Seems that the gel palms do little for vibration dampening. Also had a pair of gel palmed leather and fabric gloves as well.

Currently Aldi bike gauntlets, they seem really good quality for the price.

Would never go riding without a proper set of bike gloves.

Normally, just a standard pair of fingerless gloves.

Picked up some Wolf outlast gloves in a summer sale basket at Raceways Motorcycles Fleetwood last summer. They're comfy and I use them with Keis heated inner gloves on cold days. Got some Dainese Gortex gloves for really bad weather & a short pair of RST cruiser gloves (picked up in winter sale basket at Raceways) for warm weather

In the summer months, I wear Elkskin Gauntlets from Aerostich. In the cooler months, I wear Thinsulate lined leather gauntlets. In the cold months, I wear Carhart insulated waterproof winter gauntlets.

Nothing, or a pair of scorpion exo. I’m getting used to them, still breaking them in.

One place I trust HD is in the glove department. I have found their gloves to be excellent although pricey, thus I only purchase them on clearance or with a heavy discount. I have a summer pair of mesh gloves and a winter pair of leather gloves both HD and both 6 years old, together retail they would have run about $140, and a third pair of a kind of all weather gloves by HD also, forget the price, also 6 years old. Like I said HD sells some good gloves.

I have a pair of winter gauntlets from Leatherup that I got with discounts and coupons for about $17 form their original retail of $89, haven't really used them although they feel real warm. A pair of Biltwell gauntlets waterproof that I probably wouldn't buy again but are okay in warm rain but fail in the cold rain or not. Some no name gloves sold by a motorcycle charity that didn't last 3 months without the fingers coming apart, but they make homegrown fingerless gloves.

Gloves?

Is this a trick question?
