Elkskin palm for durability and protection, and deerskin in other areas for lightweight, protective durable comfort. A visco-elastic TF3 impact pad adds further protection. Adjustable, gusseted gauntlet seals sleeve cuffs. And the wrist is secured with both an elasticized area and a reversed hook-and-loop strap which pulls towards your body for easier adjusting. For added utility and safety, the left thumb is equipped with a resilient visor squeegee. The Insulated Elkskin Gauntlet has a luxuriously warm 100% merino wool lining which is softer, thicker, warmer and more durable than the various fleeces and synthetic fibers used in other insulated riding gloves – it won’t pill, mat down or wear through after a few thousand miles.
