|Looking for recommendations for gloves. I have been using Performance gloves for years but the last pair are a bit small and don't close. My hands measure 10" around so gloves that run larger would be great, I don't think I want to go to a gel type glove pittards are fine with me
I did a search back through the board and have looked at the reviews and am leaning toward the Pearl Izumi ones just looking for some more feedback.

|They last a long time. I wash them by hand about once every three months and use them in a three-pair rotation.
I think the newer design is inferior to the older, very black leather and different lycra cut, though.

|But they seem hot to me since there are no vent holes in the palm.
Other than that, they seem to be pretty comfortabe.

|I tried 2 pairs, they were great while they lasted, but both literally fell apart after I washed them a couple of times following the mfgr. instructions. Now I wear Specialized gloves, the wash well and are almost as comfortable.|

|2nd the falling apart. Nice glove - poor quality. After wearing them for a season as the nylon slowly ripped, the leather palms just came completely apart at a seam.|
|Agree, but wish they were cheaper....nm||MR_GRUMPY|

|Try Castelli Simple gloves. Not much padding but thats the way I like it. Just enough padding to take care of the road rash if I go down.|

|Full finger or all short finger. Durable leather. Closed back with a velcro closure.
I use the full finger (actually the last three fingers), and use them for cycling when they are showing enough wear to make me not want to use them anymore for sailing.

|Try horseback riding gloves available at any horse tack shop. They are all leather, have stretchy material in between the fingers, and are vented on the back. They are very comfortable! They only come in full finger variety. Some of the best gloves are under $25. They will last a season or two. Beware the the gloves can become stiff with washing, and hand washing and following the manufacturer recommended cleaning is best. Also, there is not a terry wipe for nasal drippings.|| |
