High-tech function meets old-school glove performance with the introduction of electro-conductive touch patterns integrated into the fingers of these destined-to-become-favorite riding gloves. The special fabric woven into the unique finger-tip patterns allows easy scrolling, dialing and zooming interface with your latest touch-screen mobile device or GPS system, without removing your gloves. These Elkskin Roper gloves are a premium work and general use glove design by a sixty year old ranch and work glove company in Washington state. Made of natural tan medium to heavy weight elkskin, they are thicker, stronger and more abrasion resistant than deerhide and they’ll last much longer. Built for cowboy and ag work, they’re tough enough for barbed wire fencing, yet sensitive enough to handle a lariat and accurately navigate a touch-sensitive screen. The snap cuff will slightly gauntlet over most jackets or close to let wind in your sleeves on a hot day. The left thumb is equipped with a visor squeegee made of resilient squeegee material. All California Highway Patrol Motorcycle Officers (and many other depts.) wear Elkskin gloves 8-10 hours a day, week in and week out. You too will experience how right they are the minute you put them on, touch start your navigation app and grab the clutch lever. These are the best gloves for serious combat touring adventures you’ll ever wear. Full and half sizes 8-12. Black may bleed slightly when wet.
