wore them about 5 times interior leather falling apart
wore them about 4 times and inside leather is falling apart
I'm 5'6" 155; ordered Large according to the size chart but gloves way too small. I'm going to return & see if XL fits me better.
I hope it does
I'm normally a L and this is what I purchased this time. The gloves compared to other brands I've used, the Aero Tech seems to be a little loose compared to the other brands. However it made getting the gloves on and off. The other brands of gloves, not necessarily the same design type, may have been too small and I should have purchased XL in some cases. Gloves are obviously a personal thing in terms of comfort and padding type, location etc re the shifter position etc. Despite the before I only have small hands compared to my height (6 ft) in my opinion, the fitment was a breath of fresh air. They may shrink after a wash. Ive only had the opportunity to use them once thus far but they do feel comfortable. The price was good. Ive given a
4 rating rather than 5 because of only using the gloves once.
This type of cycling glove has always been my favorite, as they are lightweight and allow abundant ventilation to the tops of the hands when riding. The only improvement that could be made to the gloves is a bit more padding under the leather palms. The brand of crochet gloves I used to by had heavily padded palms, but regrettably they are no longer manufactured. It will be interesting to see how this brand of gloves will last before the begin wearing out.
Ordered these not for cycling, but for driving gloves. They have the padding where needed at just the right thickness.
I have a pair of gloves similar to these that I have loved wearing for cycling, but after 25 years they have finally started to fall apart. I looked everywhere for a similar pair and these are the only ones I could find. They look great and fit well, but after less that 3 weeks the mesh at the thumb is already unraveling. Too bad. They're inexpensive, but I'd rather pay a few dollars more for a quality product.
gloves fit perfectly, wanted the retro look and that's exactly what these are. Easy to wash and dry quickly, good amount of padding in the palm. definitely recommend if you are looking for a cool pair of retro gloves for the warmer months.
These gloves are very well padded and solved my hand numbness problem on rides over 25 miles. You need these gloves!
I like the feel of these gloves - the hands feel comfortable (breath through the crochet top). Natural leather makes them even more comfortable. They look a little big on my hands - but i deliberately bought larger size because I have big palms. Good value for the price.
Very good breathability with these, but the leather on the palm is a bit thick/stiff for cyclists. Maybe it will soften with time, but after several uses including 3 hour rides, the palm is not my favorite. I like the light color though.
gloves are super! description was lacking with 'sister pair' of gel gloves with padding....the leather biking glove seems to have the same feel and thickness as its gel sister.
I bought both pairs, and would urge marketing to rate the thickness of each separately and publish it into the catalog description.
