Touch-Screen Elkskin Ropers
- Product Review (submitted on June 19, 2012):
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.
