Summer Gloves
« on: February 09, 2020, 04:54:24 PM »
My Helds have a hole in one finger and are starting to fall apart, so I'm looking for suggestions on a short cuff summer glove. Prefer something leather in the $50 to $75 range.

Had V1s, liked them a lot, passed them on to my son.

Picked up V2s when they became available.

Like them even more.

Yep. I have the Tourmaster version of these and that's been my go-to glove for my ridiculously-sized hands for years. Once broken in, nothing fits better, and the more deer that are killed for my benefit, the better.

I do like deer skin gloves. I would like a short cuff version though.

Funny you should post this as I was actually looking at the very same gloves. Do they seem to hold up well?

Gloves tend to last a long time with me.
These appear to be very well made and
I expect them to last several seasons.
After initial break-in they are very
comfortable.

I wear them when on the CT110 and work good when working in the garden as well.

TO top it off you can get a 3 pair  at costco for cheap  :thumbsup:

Replace Held with Held is probably the best option.

I have two (I know, only two) pairs of summer glove. One is lovely and comfortable and would offer minimal protectioon in a crash, the other is armoured and I picked them up for very little at a Triumph sale.

Yeah, pretty tough to go wrong there.

I confess that I always grab my Lee Parks deerskins even though they're not armored. They just feel right.

I don't see just exactly how much good armor in your knuckles in gloves is going to do.

It looks cool and you can smash car mirrors without hurting your knuckles.

But a ball-peen also works very effectively on kneecaps.

There's a fine but blurry line between childish (which is annoying) and childlike (which is endearing).
