Gel Sport Cowhide Gloves
- Product Review (submitted on December 28, 2010):
I purchased these gloves for cooler weather, since the mesh-backed gloves I have been wearing get a little chilly when temps drop to 45F or less. When the Sport Cowhide gloves arrived, I was very impressed with the construction of these gloves, but I really wanted a little more armor protection on the backside of the glove and a little more padding in the palm. I was also less than thrilled with the fit. According to the Aerostich sizing chart, the large size glove should have been perfect - or even just a tad big - for my hands, but when they arrived, the right hand glove was just a little too snug. Being leather, I am sure it would have eventually stretched to fit, but in the mean time, it was a little uncomfortable.
In short, if you want a basic, no-frills but high-quality glove, you will probably be very pleased with these. However, I ended up returning these gloves and purchasing some Olympia cold-weather gloves, instead.
