Too Small Review by Eratosthenes
Too small. I had to return the gloves that were one size larger than the chart, and get a size 1 1/2 size larger. Also, on both pairs, I noticed that it was a bit difficult getting my thumb into the right glove. I had to work my thumb in through the insulation. I had thought it was just a quirk with the first pair, but I was wrong. (Posted on 12/30/11)
Beautiful Glove Review by prodaddy
Nice gloves, really great look and feel. Had no problem getting them over jackt cuff and keeping them there. Must admit, if you are looking for warmth in the 30degree range, forget it, best go 12v heated, but other than that I'd recommend them. Be sure you order them one size larger as the ad says, they break in nicely... (Posted on 12/22/11)
Good glove Review by Jiri
High quality glove, made in US, warm. As mentioned in other reviews, if you're borderline, get the larger size. I commute in Denver year around, they get me through the first 20 minutes at 22F, no heated grips. Winters in Colorado tend to be cold but with the low relative humidity these do better job than any other winter gloves I have had. Riding in around 32F is reasonably comfortable. One day I rode at 18F with 70% humidity (about -10F windchill at 70+ mph), stopping at my favorite coffee shop after 20 minutes was pretty much mandatory to avoid frostbite. Own them for about 3 weeks now, seem to be very high quality, nice and soft. I am curious to see how much water they soak up in the first rain. Likely will get the ropers for summer. One con - the palm of my throttle hand still seems to 'accumulate' excess leather creases, curiously the left glove doesn't do it. (Posted on 12/18/11)
My Favorite Winter Glove Review by graham
These gloves are pretty near perfect: warm enough to keep me riding w/o heated grips into the 40s (I do have handguards) and not so bulky that you can't feel. I'd recommend them to anyone. (Posted on 12/17/11)
Crashworthy Review by John
I had a get off the other day. I wasn't wearing my "Stich, of course. I save that for days in which I don't crash. But I did have the Elkskins on. My hands were unscathed, and the gloves, which certainly show signs of road rash, did not wear through at any point. I don't think I'll have to replace them. Which is more that I can say for the rest of what I was wearing, not to mention a layer or two of epidermis. (Posted on 12/16/11)
Nice Gloves - Gauntlets too small - returned Review by Bob
Very nice gloves, but like other reviews state, the gauntlet is waay too small. Wouldn't fit over the cuffes of my leather jacket. I returned them , but will order a pair without the gaunlets in the Spring. (Posted on 12/6/11)
Gauntlet to small Review by Bob
The gloves were returned, the gauntels were way too small to go over the cuffs of my Leather coat sleeves.

I will try a pair of these without the gauntlet in the spring. (Posted on 12/5/11)
Good Gloves Review by Eratosthenes
Good gloves, but the sizing chart is extremely off. As suggested by "U.B.", you should get at least one full size larger than the scale on the website suggests. That being said, mine are still a bit tight, but I'm hoping they will stretch a bit over the next several months. I have found that they work best for me down to about 45 degrees. Less than that, and I use mittens. My freakin' thumbs always seem to be the most sensitive, regardless of what I wear. (Posted on 11/29/11)
Perfect Glove Review by K-less
Finally a warm glove that fits with good dexterity. I like the gaunlet - goes over all my jackets with ease. They work great in 40-60 degree weather with wind. I live in Kansas - alot of wind. Haven't worn them in rain yet. Wish I had them when we rode to Florida - 36 in the mornings - BRR!. (Posted on 11/25/11)
Seem alright, But... Review by shadowhawk
they are not for larger hands. My measured glove size is 4", or a Large according to Aerostitch's sizing guide (though I typically wear an XL glove, maybe 'cuz I have sort of long fingers). I ordered up a size (got size 11) as recommended but the gloves were still way too tight..the liner got bunched up when I tried to put my hand in; it just wasn't going to work. Too bad they're not available in a larger size, they otherwise seemed pretty nice. Definitely order a size (or 2) larger... (Posted on 11/5/11)

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.”
