Touch-Screen Elkskin Ropers
- Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2012):
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.
