99% Positive Review by jbhawley
I've been wearing the touchscreen roper gloves for over a month now...daily commutes and a couple longer road trips. As others mention the gloves do run large. At least 1/2 size.

Break-in was not an issue. If you have ever worn real leather work gloves then you know leather is a bit stiff at first and then the more you wear the better the gloves will contour to your hands. If you have wuss hands and think the goat skinned golfing gloves are more your style then these may not be for you. Hey...man up...they are leather gloves and made to last. GHEESH!

Over all these are 99% great gloves. The minor 1% is a bit of a distraction. The portion of the glove that is between the ring and little (pinky) finger is bulky. It is a very minor point but one I think could be adjusted by the mfg.

The touch screen portion works nice after a few days of wear...gotta build up some skin oils on the threads to get the conductivity to work. The gloves are too bulky for text-ing while wearing but to answer a smart phone or scan your itunes they work as advertised.

Hey Andy...how about a new line of the touchscreen gloves: gauntlet, lined, competition...just add the conductive thread to all your current line up. I would like to have a set of these for the cold weather riding months. (Posted on 6/19/12)
The most comfortable glove......... Review by Tele130
I use my iPhone on my '06 Concours as my GPS and a music source. I also listen to "Pod Casts" or "Pandora Radio"......(Yes, I've heard both sides to this argument. To each his own). So I saw these gloves and figured for the cost, it's hard to go wrong. When they arrived, I put them on expecting a break-in period. Not so. These gloves are the most comfortable glove of ANY kind I've ever put my hand into. The sizing chart is dead on. The stitching in the finger tips really does allow the use of your touch screen devices as advertised. However, I have a waterproof mounting case that I put my iPhone in while riding......(besides being secure, I never have to worry about it getting wet). and as it turns out, these gloves won't activate the touch screen while in the case. That's OK, their still the most comfortable glove I've ever owned.......FANTASTIC!! I also treated the gloves with Mink Oil paste and let it soak in over two days before wiping off the excess. Then I ran the gloves under warm water getting them as wet as possible and then wore them tell they were dry. The fit is impeccable!!! Aerostitch is a great place to get all your riding apparel.

I did have an issue with "Fed-EX" letting my shipment sit for three days in their warehouse (over the weekend). Not happy about that at all! My next order will be handled by the USPS!!!!!! (Posted on 6/16/12)
Touchy Subject Review by SoCalDon
They work great on the phone although a build up, or knot of magnetic thread irritates my finger. Would like the gauntlet version of the glove for winter… (Posted on 6/8/12)
Couldn't Imagine Review by Wolfy
I got both my wife and I a pair of these gloves and we love them.

Her only complaint is that her hand get cold when the temp. is below 45. They are a little big for her even with the smallest size made. She still really likes them and she is able to keep her gloves on and use her phone or GPS while we ride. And yes she is the Pillion.

As for me I would have NEVER thought these gloves where that great. They are soft and comfortable after they are broken in. The touch screen thread doesn't always work but I guess it is better than always taking my gloves off to punch something into the GPS. I do have to say that the best part of these gloves came after I had to send them in for warranty work.

We rode to the coast and I used my old gloves that I got new last year and are still in great shape. They have all the modern features plus some and I THOUGHT I really liked them. By the time we got to the coast, only 180 miles from home, my hands were killing me. The weekend before we rode 860 miles in 26 hours and fatigue was not an issue. The only change was the gloves.

I got my replacement gloves last night and can't wait to get them broken in again. For such basic design, other than the touch screen, AeroStitch has done a great job with the design and materials used in these gloves.

Get and pair for yourself and I'm sure you will find the same thing true.

Happy riding,

Great Gloves Review by seayakerrob
These are great gloves. Very comfortable, excellent fit. They work great with my iphone although I would not try and type a email with them on. Work well enough to turn on a nav app, skip song or answer the phone. The inside leather is very soft on the skin and they seem like they have plenty of protection if needed. (Posted on 5/25/12)
Great gloves, with one tiny flaw Review by IT_Mike
Overall, I love these gloves.

Soft, comfortable, great fit, and the ability to wipe other peoples windshield washer fluid off you faceshield on the fly. The touchscreen stitching works very well.

Speaking of the stitching...it's on the wrong side of the thumb. I don't know anyone who operates a touchscreen with the outside of their thumb. (Posted on 3/15/12)
Bloody Brilliant Gloves Review by Scotty
I received these gloves a couple of months ago and couldn't be happier. They look, feel and perform exactly as advertised, and I absolutely love them. I did have a small issue with one of the closure tags coming away, but closer inspection revealed where the sewing machine must've had a slight hiccup (all other stitching appear to be fine). I was very impressed with the customer service I received from Aerostitch. They moved to act immediately and effectively, but since it was only a minor thing, I had an upholsterer mate of mine just sew it back up for me. Good as gold again, and have been flawless ever since. I will definitely be ordering the winter gauntlets when it starts to get colder here (Sydney Australia). (Posted on 2/28/12)
Off center Review by Harley
Ordered two pair, the threads on one finger are slightly off center, the other pair the threads are facing the other finger rather than on the finger pad. (Posted on 2/13/12)
requuires wet fingertips Review by Al
The size was fine. The leather material is comfortable. However, while I thought the touch-screen stitching feature was very clever, it did not work for me at all. Aside from very clunky fingertips while trying to turn the phone on, the fine print in the note included with the gloves says the stitching works best when slightly wet, requiring one to lick ones fingertips each time one uses the phone, unless it is raining. Alternatively, it suggests coating the fingertips with brake fluid, which it says will not harm the phone's screen. I really don't want to take the chance that brake fluid on my new gloves won't remove the paint on my gas tank or panniers. I returned the gloves unused. (Posted on 12/24/11)

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.
