Just Right! Review by rench
I have been looking for a middle weight glove. I've got cold and hot weather covered, but when the temps were in the 50s - 60sF, my hands were either to hot or too cold. These are comfy from 55 to 85F. Like Goldylocks, I found the ones that are "just right".
I picked the competition ropers for the knuckle padding and the wrist strap to secure them on my hands better.
Ordered size 10, but the right hand glove was too large. left fit ok, but a bit loose. Returned and got 9.5 (both gloves are the same size this time) and I couldn't be happier with them, or the return process. My advice if you hands are between sizes, is to go for the smaller size. These will stretch a little over time. (Posted on 11/15/11)
Glove Review by RUGGER
I the beginning didn't look like much, but after a week they feel great in confort and safety. get them, they are made in the US and that is a big bonus. (Posted on 9/29/11)
Comfortable and versatile Review by pretzladay
After about 500 miles, and a couple of 50 degree mornings and 90 degree afternoons, I have found these gloves to be comfortable and versatile. I need to craft some device to keep the wrist strap from pulling through the buckle -- manufacturer needs to fix that. Thumbs are a little short for me, but most gloves are. Otherwise the fit is good. (Posted on 9/26/11)
Great gloves Review by kpax
I've had a lot of gloves and these are my favorites, along w/ Gerbings for really cold weather. The elkskin feels great. My 9's came in and i thought they were a little big, so i called Aerostich and they immediately sent 8.5 next day air and charged the same as std. freight. 8.5 was too small, so I washed the 9's. The 9's fit perfectly now.

Comp. Ropers Review by 2wTraveler
I didn't like them at first but decided to give the gloves an honest shakedown. After about 2 weeks of regular use they feel excellent and I don't plan on replacing them anytime soon. The only thing I do not like is the color. Think I am going to try to dye them black. (Posted on 7/25/11)
OH WOW!! One Happy Camper Review by Wildcat_drvr
These gloves are so soft it's unreal. The grip is almost too good! My hands are wide but fingers short. Luckily the shipping dept. made a mistake and sent me the touchscreen ropers in 10 as my hand measured but the glove fingers were to long for my fingers. Called a helpful customer service gal and had them send me a 9 instead of a 10 and since they goofed on model I didn't have to pay return shipping! And it only took two days to get here. The 9s stretched to my hands with-out having to wet them to stretch them out a little, they are a custom fit now and I couldn't be happier unless they were free! I also like the little piece of Velcro "fuzzy" for when the straps (which go the correct way) goes past the main piece of Velcro. Thanks for the Great Gloves (Posted on 7/20/11)
Kind of halfway ok Review by JohnR100RS
I tried the regular Elkskin ropers after having a really bad experience with the merino wool lined gauntlets .(they sucked) . The regulars are not bad , so I decided to give aerostitch another try . What a mistake that was . They cut off the circulation on my right hand the same as the gauntlets .I soaked them in Lexol several times hoping that my handswould overcome the gloves .No luck . I also have two pair of Roadgear gloves ,and two pair of Lee Parks . I just ordered another pair of Lee Parks similar to the Competition ropers . Lee Parks are by far the best . In my humble opinion Aerostitch should stich to making suits which along with the customer service are quite good . (Posted on 6/28/11)
Better than more expensive gloves. Review by Doug Just Doug
Rode close to 2K miles in my new Comp. Ropers last week during Americade. Super comfy, good control feel, useful (light) rain wiper, and didn't make my hands sweat in mid-90F temps. These replaced a well-known brand selling for much more, and are now my go-to gloves for warm weather. I don't mind the small gauntlet 'cuz I'm wearing these under the sleeves. I may modify the wrist strap so it won't pull back out thru the buckle. (Posted on 6/17/11)
Half perfect Review by Aeriam
Got my gloves, WOO. I was excited, Tried on the right hand glove, FIT PERFECT. everything about it was perfect.

tried on the left hand glove. The thumb is too short and fingers are too long, specially the little finger.

the left glove feels weird to wear. I'm afraid to soak them to form fit them since the thumb is so short on the left glove.

going to try and contact aerostich and see if I can get a new left glove only. (Posted on 5/27/11)

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.
