My XL gloves arrived this morning.  They seem good quality, but they’re a bit tight, so I’ll use them tomorrow and see how I get on.  Thanks for the link MinThumbs Up

I;ve always found that if I get gloves of the "correct" size measured over knuckles etc they're far too tight so I always go for a size up. Leaves room for the silk inners as well!

Agreed. That’s why I ordered the largest size available.  Silk inners, eh?  What’re you wearing now?
Oh, sorry, that’s a different forum. Forget I asked😃

Used gloves yesterday and found them to be ok; a little snug, but reckon they'll soften up a bit with use. All in all, a good buy. Thanks again, Min.

Assuming leather, they should loosen off a bit with use. Neatsfoot oil might help.

Just in from 1000 mile trip with my new gloves. Rained a lot, was down to 9C last night  during a 2 hour run. No wet or cold fingers.so there weren't .
My spare pair arrived while I was away and comparing the two, my "old" 1000 mile ones are now  looser and softer.

What more do you want from a 12 (ish) quid pair of gloves?

Cheers
Min

Boots from Altberg, helmets at shows, the rest from Ebay. Normally Ride recommended gear. 2nd hand Halvarssons also come up cheap so it do.. I'm not proud. Some other stuff that I keep quiet about . 
Man, I even buy my shirts off ebay. 

These savings let me fly business class so they do.


No they don't .
