Product Description

Details

Use every electrostatic screen controlled device (iPhones, iPads, GPSs and Androids, etc) with your riding gloves on. Rows of electro-conductive stitching exactly where needed let you scroll, dial, pinch-zoom, browse and navigate normally. The Ropers themselves are carefully made of natural tan medium to heavy weight Elkskin. They are a bit thicker, stronger and more abrasion resistant than deer hide, so they'll last much longer. This Competition version takes the Standard Elkskin Ropers to the next level with an added hook and loop wrist closure -- reversed for ergonomic advantage -- and also add a generous Elkskin covered TF3 impact-foam knuckle pad that can make a difference in a crash scenario. The left thumb is equipped with a visor squeegee made of a resilient squeegee material. An adjustable, tapered, gusseted gauntlet seals sleeve cuffs. And the wrist is secured with both an elasticized area and a reversed hook-and-loop strap which pulls towards your body for easier adjusting. This is a premium rider’s glove, made by a ranch and work glove company in Washington State. They’re strong and durable enough to take on everyday rough cowboy and ag work -- from handling barb wire fences to accurately directing a lariat, and ultra-comfortable all-day because of their superb medium weight luxuriously tanned natural tan Elkskin. This comfortable abrasion resistant leather absorbs and dissipates sweat, wears cool, and quickly conforms itself to the shape of your hand. The California Highway Patrol Motorcycle Officers (and many other depts.) wear Elkskin gloves 8-10 hours a day, week in and week out. You too will experience how right they are the minute you put them on, and grab the clutch lever. Modern techno-function meets old school comfort and performance. You too will experience how right they are the minute you put them on and grab the clutch lever. These are the ultimate gloves for serious combat touring adventures or for every day A to B riding.Full and half sizes 8-12 (not available in 11.5). Natural.

pair number 4, first with 'touch screen'Review by Richard
Still breaking in 'roper' pair #4. First pair with the 'touch screen' stitching. The fit is true 'Aerostich', no complaints. I like the 'competition' design for hotter riding weather, fitting nicely under my roadcrafter sleeve-cuffs.

I haven't used the touchscreen feature quite enough yet, but look forward to getting use to it. (Posted on 7/14/14)
Great GlovesReview by Robert
This is my second pair of Aerostich roper gloves, and I am very happy with the quality of both workmanship and materials. I was between sizes so I ordered both and ended up keeping the larger pair in this version. I wish I was able to get a tighter fit but the smaller (by a .5 size) was too tight and I felt that on long rides would have been just too uncomfortable. The sizing issue is in the palm/thumb area, not the fingers, which were perfect. I like the added knuckle pad and longer gauntlet in comparison to my standard ropers, but I'm sure the velcro will wear out way before the rest of the glove does. If that happens, it looks like an easy repair, so I wouldn't be concerned about it. I haven't used the touchscreen feature too much, but when I have it worked just fine. I just installed a Garmin 590LM GPS on the bike and I'm looking forward to testing them with it, but I don't anticipate any problems. (Posted on 6/23/14)
Good Gloves but a small nit-picReview by John
I do have one nit-pic with the design of the gloves. The leather/velcro strap needs a minor improvement. Nearly every time I put the gloves on the strap has disengaged from the metal ring. I do not notice this until I have both gloves on my hands and then its a PITA to feed the strap back through the metal ring. I may suggest to do a small redesign on the strap and make the very tip end of the strap an arrow shape or a bit wider than the rest of the strap. This would keep the strap in the metal ring under normal use but still allow the wearer to pull the strap out if needed. Notice the way the Lee Parks DeerSport glove strap is designed.

Washable Leather?

“All of the elkskin glove models are cut and sewn on the exact same patterns so they fit similarly from model to model, but there are slight variations from glove to glove because each glove is hand made and each section of elkhide is a little different. A great way to quickly custom-fit a new pair is to fully wet-saturate on a warm day when you know you'll be riding continuously for several hours, then let them dry and conform to the shape of your hands during that ride.

Elkskin and deerskin can be safely washed using warm water and mild soap. This removes accumulated dirt, oils and stains and will help gloves last longer and feel nicer. After rinsing to remove residual soap, gloves should be gently wrung damp and allowed to dry gradually at room temperature. Do not apply direct heat when drying. They shrink slightly but will stretch to fit during wear.”
