    Summer glove suggestions

    Hi All

    I'm looking for a summer glove with some fair wrist coverage. I've been blessed (Cursed?) with long arms, such that my short gloves and standard sleeve length on my jackets give me the most bizarre wrist tan, along with an increased risk of unwelcome insects encroaching up my sleeves. I love my BMW Allround gloves, but in the southeast summer swelter, my hands would swim. Any suggestions?

    I'm all ears... Went to purchase some the other week, but got confused & came home without any.

    I use Lee Parks gloves. The link is to the deer and elk skin pair like the ones I've been using for five seasons.

    Rev 'It makes some nice, breathable summer gloves with good protection, as well. I've have mine for around 5 years. Good ventilation.

    Gloves, summer gloves, must be a hundred or more to pick from. What are you looking for?

    Warm weather ?
    very hot weather?
    Leather ?
    Synthetic ?
    Armor protection ?
    Gauntlet, or not ?

    I have had many over the years and I now run with Aerostich Elkskin gauntlet gloves from moderate weather to warm, 80 or so degrees.

    I use the BMW Airflow gloves for 80 plus weather. I have the old version, they have lasted for years.

    Basic lightly-lined deerskin gloves have been good to me.
