The best!! Review by jknight611
I have used these gloves for 5 years, probably have 100,000 miles on these gloves. They are starting to show their age, but last time I washed them they came out just fine. Mine have been wet so many times they really fit well. Minor downside when they get wet, they take a long time to dry. (Posted on 6/24/12)
Keepers Review by R184
Going on 4 years on my current pair. Plan on keeping them another 4 years. Have "wasted" a lot on money on various "high tech" gloves, but keep putting these back on. (Posted on 6/21/12)
Excellent Glove Review by Bluesforchallah
I purchased the Elkskin roper glove per the sizing chart. At first I thought they were going to be a little big, but once I ran them under warm water and got them thoroughly soaked, I let them dry overnight at room temp per the instructions provided with the gloves and now they fit me better then any other pair of glove I've ever owned. I'm looking forward to many miles ahead with these gloves. (Posted on 6/15/12)
Good gloves Review by Curtis
They're great gloves. These are my second pair. My first pair was stolen. They will bunch up a bit on the insides of your knuckles until they're broken in. They are very comfortable after that. They work for all but the coldest weather with the liners and I have heated grips. The longer length of the glove is great for keeping the cold wind from going up your sleeves. I cinch down the sleeves of my jacket and then pull on the gloves over the ends of the sleeves. When the temps get down to the 30's I'm wanting heated gloves or liners to heat the outsides of my hands. They are not waterproof. For the money, these are the best. (Posted on 5/30/12)
Great Gloves Review by RK Dan
I've had quite a few pairs of gloves over my riding years and have to say that these are my favorite. I had to send the first pair back for a smaller size but now they fit, well, like a glove. Smooth, thick leather and very soft inside. Not as stretchy as deer skin and more water repellent. I got the black and soaked them for a day to remove some excess dye. No bleeding in the rain. Perfect primary riding glove. (Posted on 5/23/12)
Great gloves...wish they carried more sizes Review by Ed
I recently purchased a pair of the Elk skin Roper gloves. Unfortunately, I have long fingers and hand but not very fat. Based on circumference, I should take a 9-1/2 or 10, but to get the length I need, I get a 12. This ends up bunching up a bit. I would love to see the gloves available in the sizes, but also with long fingers (~3/8" longer than "standard").. I suspect there may also be a need for short fingers as well. The gloves are great and I'll keep them but I wish I could find some other options. Again they vary great gloves, but I have a weird hand. (Posted on 5/21/12)
Elk skin ropers Review by Tom
Beautiful leather quality and comfortable. My only disappointment was the sizing being a mite larger than the equivalent elk skin gauntlet - so the resulting fit is 'good but not great.' Perhaps the lack of a knuckle pad made the difference. (Posted on 5/15/12)
Good gloves but I think I have an idea to improve them. Review by Erik
These gloves are nice. They are well made and I think you get good value. The fit was a little larger than what I expected. I added a little to the size as I did not trust the measurement. Turns out their sizing was correct but they are just a little loose so I am keeping them.

The problem I have with the gloves in general is that they hang/sit flat. I think the gloves would be much better if they naturally had the fingers curled. The gloves resist closing around the bikes handles and it becomes annoying after an hour. I am sure that after wearing them in they will be a glove you never want to be without but I want them closer to that point to start with.

Awesome Gloves Review by Elliot
Well, I just completed a 3012 mile ride with my wife. It was our Wedding Anniversary ride. we started in 57 degree weather in NJ, to 47 degrees at the Blue Ridge Mountains ( not sure if they will keep you warm below 47 degrees) and ended in 101 degree weather in Key West. Just made it in last night after a 12 hour ride and the gloves felt great in all weather conditions. We went through some light rain and the gloves kept my hands dry. I absolutely love them and will not were anything else. (Posted on 5/9/12)
Elk hide ropers Review by JohnnyKid
I'm on my seventh or eighth pair of elk hide ropers. I was a motorcycle officer for more than half my career and I always used these gloves. I bought my first pair in 1990 or 1991 and used them both at work and when riding to and from work for years. The clutch hand would wear out after two or three years of regular use. You can't beat that. I put some conditioner on them once in a while and wash them sometimes with a little dish soap and water.I even called to order a pair while crossing the country in 2007. I had them sent to a place I would reach in a few days and they were waiting for me when I arrived. Good customer service too. I guess they are just good old riding gloves. Nothing fancy.... Like me.

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.”

–Mr. Subjective.
