Im an old school rider, and these to me are the gloves I started with, Great to see that you haven't changed with everyone else. Great fit very comfortable, Love them. Thanks
So far gift recipient really likes the gloves.
Repeat purchase, I prefer soft leather to gel, and covering middle of the palm was important choosing this glove
Great thick (but not too thick) padding in right places (for me, anyway--lower part of hand). Leather is soft and comfortable.
I ordered The XL , 53 yr. old male 6'2" 200 lbs, slim build. they seem big,but work, and maybe could have ordered the large, which is what the chart recommended, I thought.. too big is better than too small, next time I will get the large.They definitely helped with the carpal tunnel numbness, which is why I bought them, All the other gloves I've tried don't have padding in that area. Not real happy with the 80's styling.I wish they made a a modern styled glove with the correct padding placement for us old guys. Maybe Aero Tech could make a modern made in USA pair??? with the 80's padding placement.....
I love these gloves. The padding is thicker than the other colored gloves I ordered from Aerotech. The only disappointment however I see already is the leather is wearing out already. I only used them maybe 8 times so far.
shipping was slower than forecasted and gloves were too big and sloppy-fitting.
I took careful measurements of hand according to their sizing chart and still did not work.
When I see "gel padding", I think of Spenco-type silicone gel padding that is very shock-absorbing and resilient. However, I was quite mistaken, as the padding in these cycling gloves is very dense and unforgiving â€” I certainly would not describe them as "gel". I was more comfortable without these gloves and only using my padded handlebars.
Other than that, the leather and stitching were nice, but the handmade crocheting around a couple of fingers was so tight on the left that I could not even slip the glove over my fingers. (My hands are very average medium size and would have otherwise fit these gloves.)
For these two reasons, I did return the gloves, and ATD very kindly accommodated me.
In the end, the the padding was the greater disappointment.
The gloves feel good and seem to fit well.
good quality, comfortable, decent pricing.
So good, fixes nerve compacture!
Bought 2 pair (for spouse and me). Keep hands cooler on long summer bike rides.
