Having just read one of the product reviews for a pair of gloves (June 2011 - P 107), one thing is for certain, a series of check lists should be drawn up for the various products being tested.
I just bought a pair of summer gloves (Tourmaster Dri-Mesh) before heading out to the Alps for 6 weeks of touring; I had a chance to really test them.
As is the case with all lined motorcycle gloves that I have bought over the years, the liners pull out when your hands are damp/wet due to perspiration or rain. Ever try to get your fingers where they belong when that happens and doesn't it at the most inopportune time...at a toll booth with a string of cars behind you?
Motorcycle glove manufacturers have no business being in the motorcycle glove business if the liners aren't sewn to stay where they belong...in the glove. Period!!!
That important aspect wasn't even mentioned in the ON Product Review. But it was in the Aug '11 issue of RoadRUNNER - Held Warm 'n Dry glove review.
BTW, the Dri-Mesh gloves are nice and comfortable, but hardly waterproof, but then how many really are.
