    That always seems to be the difficult part.

    Yep. Conversations about boots, gloves, and helmets only help so much. I wear a pair of Held's cheaper gloves as my everyday pair. I had, as part of an insurance payment, the money to buy a replacement pair of their fancy and expensive gloves. But instead of the $150 gloves, I ended up with the $50 gloves. They fit while the others didn't.

    (it didn't help that the super fancy and expensive Helds with the rivets and kangaroo skin, etc had been destroyed in a minor 10 mph spill)

    My take is a bit different. I wear a pair of deerskin gloves made by ... darned if I can remember. The company has a spiffy looking logo, and the gloves come in a cool clear storage pack, and maybe I will remember the name after my third cup of coffee.

    Anyway, I also have a pair of Pearl Izumi bicyclists rain gloves that I keep in the trunk: very light weight, waterproof, and they fit over the deerskins when needed.

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.

    Mine did okay in a 70mph, 50-foot, face-down, palms-down slide on a concrete interstate highway. The rivets did their job and some ripped out, but not all. The kangaroo skin performed very well. In fact, I still sometimes wear those gloves.

    Good to know. Maybe mine were just showing their age or were an anomoly.

    BTW, that sounds like a charming experience.

    The Held gloves I have are not waterproof. I have not used the Revit gloves in rain yet but I expect them to perform well. Both are comfortable.

    It was. Returning from Americade in 2001 I hit a deer at 70 mph on I-88 near Cobbleskill, NY. Wear the gear... I'm still here.

    Thanks for the response, Marilyn. I've just ordered the Revit Tornado H20s. I've got a pair of lightweight summer Held's but am looking for something a bit more substantial... and waterproof.

    The Held Storm I have are waterproof. Just not all the fancy stuff of some of the other gloves they make.

    My Held Hawk gloves are good for cooler to cold (40-ish) weather. They're good in the rain, too.

    spring/fall gloves

    Just got back from RA nat. I wore both my Summer and Winter BMW BMW gloves on the ride. I forgot that the Summer gloves have one feature that the Winter glove and most other gloves do not have. The left glove has a squeegee built into the index finger. It's a feature I've gotten use to using. Riding back from the rally it got cold and switched to the winter gloves. Then it started raining. I really found out out how much I used that sqeegee feature to wipe off rain drops off my Helmet windshield.
