Need a revision Review by Donovan
The gauntlet rides up and exposes the cuff of my suit of most all occasions. Dexterity is OK. The wiper is nice. Wrist straps get out of bounds too easily. I won't buy these again although they are OK gloves. There are just so many other choices out there. (Posted on 12/29/10)
Outstanding gloves Review by Stephen
I used these gloves this past fall and early winter riding in suburban Chicago and found they offered warmth and protection from the wind while still allowing a great deal of dexterity. But what has really sold me on these gloves is the results I experienced using them while running my snowblower. They can get completely encrusted with ice and snow and still keep my hands warm and dry. I expected a nice pair of motorcycle gloves - but I was pleasantly surprised to find they're also kick-ass winter work gloves as well. (Posted on 12/14/10)
Great glove Review by Ron
Order a little larger than you think you need to be safe as mentioned. I too have damaged fingers from cold riding over the years and my fingers get white from cold. These are as good or better at keeping my hands warm as much larger bulky gloves. Very well made. My new favorite glove for cold weather riding. I've got at least 20 pair of cold weather gloves so that tells a lot about how much I like these. (Posted on 11/3/10)
Warm & Comfortable Review by Mark
I just finished riding at 70mph in a cool 44 degrees for over an hour in Michigan. I'm the one who gets white fingers from the cold, but not in these gloves. Shopped for "ropers" at all the local tack houses and on-line. These aren't made overseas with Water Buffalo hides and cheap linings. If you order the lined ones and are borderline next size, get them a little larger since the linings do take away from the size a bit. I'm sure with my XL's they'll stretch with age though and be just fine. They're worth every penny I paid for them! (Posted on 10/14/10)
After years of searching... Review by U.B.
...I've finally found a decent pair of cold-weather gloves. Let me explain.

You can find gloves to keep you warm, but they are often bulky and leave you unable to feel the controls of your motorcycle. It seems every year, I think I've finally found the gloves that will keep my digits, well, if not "warm", at least "not frozen".

I ride Ducati Superbikes so there is a great amount of wind directly on the gloves. This exposes any weaknesses in stitching and "wind proofing".

The Insulated Elkskin Gauntlet is not near as bulky as their competition. While not a racing glove, they aren't thick enough to compromise control feel.

They DO, however, do a wonderful job of protecting your hands from the wind. Not a single air-leak!

Sizing is very critical and you will be well cautioned not to purchase the glove any smaller than you regularly wear. I have a medium-sized hand and was directed to purchase a size 9. It was far too small. So small in fact that my wife uses them for inclement weather days.

The size 10 was a perfect fit.

It isn't often that companies surprize you with a quality product, but I've found one in these gloves.

I can't give these gloves a high enough endorsement! A great product! (Posted on 12/22/09)

Mr. Subjective on Insulated Elkskin Roper Gloves

The Insulated Elk Ropers are different than every other winter riding glove on the market. They are not the bulky thick common cold weather glove ski/snowmobile type glove made in Asia, with a textile and cowhide outer and a fleece inner. They are based on the Elk Ropers (our most popular glove) but feature a knit merino wool lining. The gauntlet section is lined with a slippery nylon knit so it's easier to rotate one's wrists a little without also twisting the sleeve of one's jacket. Which is what happens with unlined deer and elk leather gauntlets.

There is a lot of nuance in this glove. In addition to the thumb visor squeegee, there's a windproof fabric across the back of the hand and fingers positioned between the outer leather and the inner merino wool knit. Farther back, the gauntlet tapers out wider than most cold weather gloves, helping it go over sleeves easer. The gauntlet and wrist have Velcro tab/strap closures that are ergonomically reversed for faster easier off-and-on adjustment. The knuckle pad is made of TF 3 (same as our impact armor)... Continue

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.”
