Aerostich Elkskin Gauntlet Gloves
- Product Review (submitted on February 25, 2009):
- I was actually surprised at how comfortable my elkskin uninsulated gauntlets were the 1st time I wore them. The leather is much more supple than that of any other motorcycle glove I own. The control feel is excellent through the gloves. The only significant issue I have with the elkskin gauntlets is the gauntlet itself; it is too narrow to fit comfortably over my more protective jackets/suits. I have small hands and like a snug fit, so perhaps the gauntlet is fuller cut on sizes larger than my size 8.5 gloves. They fit snugly over my Roadcrafter suit, but bind and twist with wrist movement. My thickest leather jacket is simply unwearable with these gloves. I bought these gloves as a more protective alternative to my lightweight mesh summer gloves, and am pleased overall with quality and fit for that role. If the design is ever changed to a wider gauntlet though, I'll immediately place an order for the new version and toss these to my cat to enjoy as a chew toy.
