Aerostich Vegan Gloves
- Product Review (submitted on November 20, 2009):
First things first: I have nothing against leather gloves, I have some and they are great....these Vegan gloves just ended up being way more versatile and comfortable. I have been using these gloves for months in all kinds of weather, touring and commuting on my LT and have found that they are perfect for me. My bike has good weather protection and heated grips, so these gloves have worked fine for me down to the high 30's.
A word about rain: I wore these gloves on a trip through the Smokies and NC in rain so hard it was like riding into a 4 inch firehose, and yes....they got soaked. BUT......I found out that I had more comfort and control with the gloves on....wringing wet.....than with my waterproof gloves or bare hands. They honestly made the difference between having fun and being miserable on that trip. Plus.....after wringing them out, they dry about a hundred times faster than boots or jeans.
I really like these gloves, they feel great, they don't 'ball up' anywhere and they haven't shown any wear yet. The only downside is that my teenage son keeps stealing them when he rides his new R6.
When these gloves wear out, I am buying another pair just like them. I think that says it all.
