- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
I've used these for riding in 40 Degree weather and so far they are so so. The BOA piece works great. It clamps around my jacket sleeve and I never have to worry about it coming undone or the sleeve slipping out like on other gloves.
They are too small. They are ok in the fingers but the thumb is a little too short and it is a bit uncomfortable. Maybe it will stretch out. A larger size would probably be okay.
But the biggest problem is the lack of padding in the palm area. Every other pair of gloves I own have some degree of padding. These are just a layer of leather. Very uncomfortable on long rides.
I'll give them another try but right now it's looking like another entry in the box of stuff you use a few time then write them off.
I love unpadded gloves! IMHO, palm padding should not be necessary if bike fit is appropriate.
