Get a grip.

Not Bad

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pretty comfortable, and the fit is great. POC makes some quality stuff, but I've always had issues with what brands advertise as touchscreen compatible with gloves. These have worked with my phone a few times but for the majority of the time they bug out. Aside from that, the quality seems pretty great and durable, and feel pretty protective.

POC Resistance DH Glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of these last summer because I wanted a light pair of gloves. After 2 months the stitching started to come apart. For $50 one would think that you could at least get a few seasons out a glove. They were also too tight around the wrist making my hands go numb on long rides.


  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

POC makes quality products, so much so that this is now my fourth pair of their gloves! None of which were replaced due to a product failure. I love these gloves because they are a bit lighter than the VPD 2.0 pair I had, but have knuckle protection (for those times that those ultra wide bars create tree punches!), which their lightest gloves dont have. They are wonderfully breathable, fit well, and I really like the palm material, my initial impression is that it will wear well. I highly recommend giving them a try!


POC DH Glove

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: LG

Very comfortable, very good tactile feel, great for hot weather. Not super protective though

Size Up

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My last pair or POC mtb gloves were medium and fit perfectly. An unfortunate tear retired them so I ordered the POC Resistance DH glove to replace them. I love the gloves, but this time the mediums were too small. Had to exchange them for a large.

UPDATE: Even the large size feels surprisingly small.

Good gloves for the trail

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: Large

These gloves have had good grip and comfort for me. They're nicely padded on the knuckles and durability hasn't been an issue after heavy use to start the summer. Very secure fit.

Sleek Gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

The gloves fit a little bit small, so I was glad I sized up for my finacee. He loves how sleek they look, but would add a wrist adjustment as they can be challenging to take on/off.
