Great GloveReview by Jeremy
Nice gloves very comfortable. Thumb squeegee works great. Seem to run large as I prefer a tight fit that will break into my hand. (Posted on 5/28/14)
I am not impressed...Review by John
I have had a pair of these gloves for a couple years (since they were first available). The first pair lasted a couple years . The metallic threads eventually stopped working, so to speak, and would not activate my iPhone screen. All four fingers and both thumb areas were DOA. The metallic thread failure started occurring after about a years worth of usage. Plus I got a hole in the side on one glove from normal usage. Yeah...I ride way too much but I figured the elk skin would hold up much better from normal daily wear.

Overall I will rate these gloves 2.5 out of 5. The metallic thread failure after a year is a killer...getting a hole in the glove is another. I really expected better quality and for the gloves to last much longer.

Better Touch-Screen than my fingerReview by Gary
For what ever reason, my fingers don't seem to trigger the touchscreen on my GPS. But the thread on these gloves trigger the screen as soon as it gets close to the button. I just finished 400 miles through the TX panhandle and eastern NM heat (90 degrees or so). Comfortable gloves even in this heat. (Posted on 7/11/13)
work gloves, marginal motorcycle glovesReview by Bruce
I have to agree with another reviewer that a major flaw with these is that they're not built with any pre-curve and thus suffer from palm leather bunching at the base of your fingers/palm when gripping the handlebar. This bunching cause a hot spot and pinching on the motorcycle handgrip as your hand moves around shifting and braking.

I wore these for three weeks straight, hoping that they would break in, but no such luck. I don't see any amount of break-in that would introduce a natural, non-bunched curve.

They're sitting on the counter unused: a wasted experiment. (Posted on 6/28/13)
Great GlovesReview by Tim
I never realized gloves could be this nice. I guess I never gave gloves much thought. If I needed gloves for a particular purpose I found a pair that fit and went with them. But these are fantastic, so soft and comfortable and durable. A thousand times better than any other roper I have ever owned. I am gearing up for a cross country ride later this summer and I am very glad I bought these. Thank you. (Posted on 4/29/13)
They just work.Review by John
These are by far the best wearing bike gloves I have ever owned. Get caught in the rain a couple times and left the gloves dry on your hands while riding and they fit even better. The touch screen threads do indeed work as designed once they are "broken in" a bit and some of your finger funk gets on the threads. The added thumb mounted face shield squeegee is a bonus. A+ on these babies!

Hey Aerostich R&D...make these touch screen gloves with gauntlets also. I know you will sell a ton more. Just a thought. Put me down on the waiting list. (Posted on 11/25/12)
The things just work and quite wellReview by Alfredo Fettuccine
I bought these gloves, and after my first stop at my local bank, and touching the ATM touch screen, they simply worked, and did so beautifully. For those fearful of needing to dab something on the finger tips to get them to work, just get out there and ride your damn motorcycle.

I did nothing special but ride, and they worked first try. I'll buy another pair when these wear out. Thanks for making something that looks great, feels great, and just works. (Posted on 8/13/12)
Best gloves ever . . . Review by Steve
. . . for adventure type boonie bashing. This my second pair. I bought the new ones only because I wanted them not to replace the other pair. they simply will not wear out and have developed excellent "character". You will not be disappointed. (Posted on 8/10/12)
New work glovesReview by Wes
Similar experience to others and I wish I would've read the reviews in detail rather than the description and sizing chart.

I waited about a month for my order and of course didn't have them prior to a week long trip with my iPhone as my music and GPS. I should've left my Zumo installed...

They fit about a half size big and the left glove is more like a full size big. My hands are identical in size and no other gloves I own fit like this, so its not due to my hands IMHO.

Staying with the QC theme, the wiper on the left thumb is poorly installed and varies in how much protrudes from the glove making it mostly useless. That being said, I have rain gloves so I don't see it being a feature I'd ever use anyway.

On a positive note, the material is thinker than other similar work gloves I have and appears to be very durable. Its also very soft and pliable.

I was considering ordering another pair a half size smaller than what the sizing chart indicated but what I consider poor QC has kept me from doing so. I'll now try to convince my wife to extract the touchscreen thread from these gloves and insert them into some of my other gloves.

You can also tell that they're not motorcycle gloves as they're not built with any pre-curve and thus suffer from material bunching at the base of you fingers/palm when gripping the handlebar. Very comfortable to wear, just not in use.

I should note that I'm a glove snob, I have on the order of 10 pairs mostly from Revit, BMW and Held so I guess you could say I've made an unfair comparison to a modified work glove.

Normally Aerostich stuff is of reasonable quality but I have to be honest and say that I wouldn't recommend these gloves for motorcycle use. (Posted on 7/3/12)
99% PositiveReview 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)
