D A: How much are my hands worth?I believe that if I'm going to engage in one of the most dangerous hobbies/sports I had better wear some decent protection and give myself the best chance possible in minimizing whatever injury might occur in the event of a crash on the street or track day/training...without going into full pro race wear!

Frederick H asked:I ride 100mi a day, 5 days a week and I'd like a full gauntlet that is also track-worthy. Because I spend so much time with them on (2hrs a day) I don't want to wear them out (I've stretched out my last two pair...). I'll make the investment, I just don't want to get top of the line only to have them stretched out too quick. Track days are few and far between. Some padding in the palm is nice as well. Are these the gloves to get, or would you recommend something else?Jan 21, 2014
Adam W:Im not sure Id recommend these for commuting. These are a very robust pair of gloves and while they have excellent sensitivty on the controls, the are fairly stiff and the fit is optimized for committed riding. They are not waterproof, the fit is ideally very close so adding liners for warmth would be very tight. For the track, or backroad rides, theses are fantastic and very comfortable - for an armored glove. As others have noted they do run small, so order up at least a size maybe two.
Ive used Elkskin Ropers from Aerostich for regular rides for a long, long time. They are sensitive to pick up change off a tabletop but still robust enough to protect in a normal speed get off. They take waterproofing very well, but also dry out quickly.
Bottom line: these are track gloves that you could obviously use commuting, but you'd maybe be comromising comfort, warmth, and dryness. Just like I wouldn't recommend commuter gloves on the track, I wouldn't recommend these track gloves for commuting.Jan 31, 2014
Thomas J:I haven't tried anything else, so I haven't much to compare to.
However I ride short trips all over town to pick up parts, order parts, and that sort of thing. Kind of like a motorcycle courier. That is to say, I have the gloves on/off about 8 times per day. Taking them on and off requires pulling pretty hard on the wrist leather to yank them down on my hands (rather tight in the wrist, but lots of room in the hands.)
So far, they have held up fine for months. No signs of stitches letting go. It's also hot here (75* ambient, every day (Hawaii)) -- my hands sweat a bit, so I'm quite pleased how the gloves have form-fit to my hands and do not appear to be stretching much or loosening up after the initial 'break in.'
I'd recommend them, but once again -- I haven't much to compare with as these are my first real sportbike gloves. After 5 months, no complaints whatsoever.
Rajarshi D: I've Put 3000 Kms On These Gloves So Far (Riding Season Is Very Short Up Here). They Did Stretch Out A Bit But I Would Just Call That Part Of Breaking In. Aside From That I Can't Complain Of Any Exaggerated Stretching. Only Thing I Feel These Gloves FeLl Short At Was The Finishing Details - The Threads From The Seams Couldve Been Cleaned Up Better Considering Its Dainese After All. But Otherwise, A Great Pair Of Gloves In My Opinion. Hope This Helps!Jan 21, 2014
Jacob H:Not quite sure what you mean by stretched out, but I'll try to answer anyways. I ride about 80mi a day. I like the gloves, but they don't have a whole lot of padding in the palms and thumbs, so my hands would get sore if I wasn't watching my riding position. They always seemed to fit just right, and after they were broken in they felt awesome. Plus, you feel pretty tough when you have them on, so that's a bonus!Jan 21, 2014
I purchased these gloves in August 2003. I don't ride nearly as much as you, but I will say I have spent a full 21 days riding for 10 hours a day in these gloves. I have had no trouble with them loosing shape or stretching. They still look and feel even better than brand new at this point. Hope it helps. I would buy them again at this point.

John S:I have only rode mine once as they are tight getting on and off. Once they are on they fit well and are very will thought out and made so I expect a long life with them. They will break in as my old gloves are a little loose now.Jan 21, 2014
